What the Super Bowl and Horse Shows Have in Common

You might’ve heard that the Seattle Seahawks are going to Super Bowl XLVIII, and even a non-sport follower like myself can tell this is a pretty big deal for Washington fans. I can’t claim any true understanding or appreciation of football, but did you know that the Super Bowl and horse shows have some things in common?

You go out there rain or shine.

A loose ball, like a loose horse, is sure to be one of the more exciting moments…
