    I've no idea what day of the week the horse was named after
    but the cowboys name was Billy the K.I.D.

    Whilst in town Billy played the Sheriff (Pat Gambit) at Chess.

    Pat was Black, what opening did he play?

    Maybe he meant the cowboy was inspired by Daniel DeFoe.

    Actually it was Robinson Crusoe who named his friend Friday. I've read it in a book. Forgot which.
