GREY GOOSE MOVING IN ON BOURBON’S TURF

By | 35 Comments

Grey Goose went to the trouble of writing up a press release for a new drink it invented for the Kentucky Derby, and it's my duty to defend the proud history of bourbon -- the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bourbon_whiskey" target="_blank">official liquor of the United States</a> -- and decry this attempted coup by vodka, the official spirit of people who like getting drunk but don't like the taste of booze.

After Ben Greenman conceived of <a href="http://www.themorningnews.org/archives/spoofs_satire/fragments_from_horses_mouth_the_musical.php" target="_blank">the Barbaro musical</a> for The Morning News, and after reading <a href="http://deadspin.com/sports/leftovers/leftovers-youre-doin-a-heckuva-job-hockey-234347.php" target="_blank">this inspired comments thread</a> at Deadspin, I decided that With Leather needed something more somber and respectful to the tragic, angelic, healing figure that Barbaro became.
