Horses on “60 Minutes” Sunday – 4/23/17

Heads up, y’all. CBS “60 Minutes” correspondent will be taking us to the timber races this Sunday.
Maybe you’re more familiar with the term “steeplechase?” This is steeplechase, American-style.

“60 Minutes” airs, unless live sports delays it, the same time it always has – 7 pm EDT on Sunday.

Here’s the link to the “America’s Steeplechase” story page. We also have a segment to enjoy on “60 Minutes Overtime” which focuses on Maryland horsewoman and producer Michelle St. John, who also brought us the “60 Minutes” story about Zenyatta several years ago.

We can thank our pal author Sasscer Hill for the tip. We know she’ll be watching. Back in the day, she was a steeplechase jockey with some wins.

2017 will be one of those New Year’s that bummed me out as a kid. With New Year’s Day on Sunday, the Rose Parade will be held on Monday, when everyone has to go back to school or work.

Now it’s no big deal with DVRs and even some YouTube video shot by enterprising parade goers and units.

Back in those “dinosaur days” without DVR a Sunday New Year’s causing the Rose Parade to go on Monday used to make me long for a snow day that never happened on demand. Anyhoo,

The parade must go on
