I hope I'm not too late. I'm on the West Coast, so I'm three hours behind everyone.

PONY


YEAHHHHH


I googled Pony on Google, and here are the first five things that come up.

1. Pony Baseball and Softball, an international youth sports organization at pony.org

2. Pony, a manufacturer of genuine footwear, apparel, and accessories that give you an edge. That's pony.com

3. My Little Pony. Awwww. Toy ponies in a variety of happy colors.

4. The Stone Pony, bar and concert venue in Asbury Park, NJ.

5. The United States Pony Clubs, Inc. The leading junior equestrian organization in the world. They're all about the horsies.

I also looked up pony in the American Heritage Dictionary. . .

pony

Something small for its kind, especially a small glass for beer or liqueur. 4.

To study with the aid of a pony: pony a lesson; ponied all night before the exam.

ETYMOLOGY: Probably from obsolete French poulenet, diminutive of poulain, colt, from Late Latin pullmen, young of an animal, from Latin pullus. See pau- in Appendix I.

So summarize, I believe Kevin Millar of the mighty Boston Red Sox described Pony when he said (in the New York Times today) 'there is no radar gun that can measure heart'.

Happy Anniversary Pony!
