Hear the Footsteps who had been working out so nicely got spooked after Gate training, reared up, fell down and cut his leg very badly, requiring stitches, lots of antiseptic and hospital stay. Linda was already pointing him to a race on December 12. Now, it will likely not happen before 2010, even if he heals nicely. Let’s hope he does. He seems to have a lot of promise (that’s what they all say!).
Supposedly, Holy Blitzer worked 3 furlongs in 36 3/5 but it doesn’t appear in the published works. However, Linda is happy with her.
Last night, we opened CIRCUMCISE ME! At the Bleecker Street Theater. Yisroel Campbell, the former Christopher Campbell, was very funny, as well as moving. He’s got an interesting story of his 3 conversions to Judaism and he tells it in a way that will leave you laughing.
The Addams Family Musical has started previews in Chicago, where it opens next month starring Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth. It’ll be Broadway bound in April. There’s lots of good buzz. They’ll be doing some editing to make it tighter. Hopefully, they’ll get rid of the slower material.
On a completely different topic, it’s easy to get stressed over obstacles we all have to overcome. Please keep Kelly Stevenson, a mother of a newborn who finds herself in distress, in your prayers. It’ll also make your obstacles seem smaller.
