So, I watched the movie "Hidalgo" last night which was pretty good. Besides the fact that Viggo Mortensen is so nice to look at. He's the thinking woman's sex symbol. It was a bit slow in parts but I enjoyed it overall. There is just something about those underdog movies. And rooting for the underdog can be fun in real life too. We love the stories where the underdog achieves against all odds. Look at "Seabiscuit" and "Miracle." Maybe that's why I'm not interested in the Olympics anymore. You don't see as many "triumph of the human spirit" stories. The United States dominates since so many pros can compete and steroids and other drugs infiltrate the process. There just isn't as much excitement anymore. We don't really have to fight to come from behind. Is it really as meaningful if it comes easy?
