Seabiscuit questionPosted by Kathy G on 12/20/03 at 10:14 (140428)
We saw the video last night and it was very good. My question: A lot of us are about the same age. Did your parents or even your grandparents ever mention Seabiscuit? It seems as though it really captured the nation's heart but I don't remember my parents ever mentioning the whole phenomenon and my dad was a real sports buff. On the other hand, he was the kind of person of whom you usually had to ask questions. He wasn't much on telling stories or volunteering information. He always left that to my mother.

Never. They mentioned many famous racehorses, but I never heard of Seabiscuit until the movie came out. I still haven't seen it.

You're too young, Kathy. :)
When Seabiscuit had his great year, 1938, I was three: I have no recollection of it, but I do of his comeback in 1940, because my father loved him and talked about him.

just after the movie came out, ETV had a special on Seabiscuit and his rider. Very touching story.
