Derby #132: Heart

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

You gotta have heart. The heart wants what it wants. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Deep in the heart of Texas. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. My heart will go on. You kids are going to give me a heart attack. We could list a hundred more. There aren't many cliches about kidneys or intestines, and there's never been a female-fronted hard rock band called Spleen. Reach into the voluminous lore and science about the heart this week, whether it's the anatomical heart (the one that pumps blood), the metaphorical heart (the one that symbolizes desire, passion, or determination), or the iconic stylized heart shape (the one you'll be seeing everywhere around the middle of this month). And do it with all your heart.

No bunnies.

No text.

No Mario anything. No Luigi, no Donkey Kong, no Wario, no Princess Peach, no Koopalings, no MarioKart, no Yoshi, no Tanooki suit, NOTHING from the Mario universe.
