I have been waiting my ENTIRE LIFE since I fell in love with horses at age 7 for this to happen. I did not think it would ever be done again. I had stopped even hoping, so I of course was not watching live, but IT HAPPENED. This is HUGE, people, and yet no one in the pop culture places I frequent seems to be talking about it. This is so much more significant than Americans winning gold medals at the Olympics. Many, many times more relevant than whoever wins/plays in the Super Bowl. This is a rare, rare thing that has not happened in 37 years/has only happened a dozen times in almost 150 years.
IT IS AMAZING. SOMEONE SHRIEK FOR JOY WITH ME. (Preferably while confirming that you understand why we are shrieking, but I'll take what I can get.)
