McGrattan has become the Bill Brasky of LGW. And in that mythic space, I actually really like his presence.
"Brian McGrattan taught me how to love a woman...and scold a child".
"Did I ever tell you about the time I went horseback riding with McGrattan, but there weren't any horses around? Well, McGrattan throws a saddle on my back and rides me around Wyoming for three days. Well, wouldn't you know it, my stamina increases with each day and I develop tremendous leg muscles. So anyway, McGrattan decides to enter me in the Breeders' Cup, right, under the name Turkish Delight. And I'm running in second place, and I'm running and I break my ankle! They’re about to shoot me. Then someone from the crowd yells out, God bless him, 'Don't shoot him, he's a human."
