I don't know if you noticed the cover story on George Foreman in the American Profile magazine included with today's T-G.
I will never forget some years back when I covered a motivational seminar at what is now the Sommet Center (I forget whether it was Nashville Arena or the GEC at the time). Foreman was one of the speakers, and I got to attend a press conference. I knew that, not long before his storied middle-age comeback, he'd participated in a celebrity-rider class at the Celebration, and I asked him if he still rode Tennessee Walking Horses. His face lit up with that smile that's sold so many grills on television. Yes, he said, he still enjoyed riding, and fondly remembered Shelbyville and the Celebration (I had not mentioned Shelbyville or the Celebration in my question, by the way). I was happy; I had a nice local tie-in for the story.
