>Big Brown & The Triple Crown

>How exciting to have a shot at the Triple Crown. You youngsters don’t remember the 1970’s when it somehow seemed common with Secretariat, Seattle Slew and Affirmed. There were great horses and match races (look up Ruffian vs. Foolish Pleasure sometime).

Horse racing was a major sport and Belmont regularly outdrew the Mets.

Best of luck to Big Brown tomorrow and may all the horses be healthy. This is something that hasn’t happened in 30 years. Six times in the last eleven years we’ve had a chance at this and all six failed. Hope that it happens, and savor all two minutes.

Big Brown & The Triple Crown

How exciting to have a shot at the Triple Crown. You youngsters don’t remember the 1970’s when it somehow seemed common with Secretariat, Seattle Slew and Affirmed. There were great horses and match races (look up Ruffian vs. Foolish Pleasure sometime).

Horse racing was a major sport and Belmont regularly outdrew the Mets.

Best of luck to Big Brown tomorrow and may all the horses be healthy. This is something that hasn’t happened in 30 years. Six times in the last eleven years we’ve had a chance at this and all six failed. Hope that it happens, and savor all two minutes.

Sorry it’s not Barry or Sammy or Roger or a bunch of other really obvious guys…it’s a horse.

Triple Crown fave Big Brown is off the ‘roids. I thought his head was getting big and the acne was odd.

Lots more about horse racing tomorrow!

>The Mets Are Doing a Good Job of Not Punching Me in the Face

>Here’s another one of those entries that captures my mood this week. There’s nothing to complain about (other than black uniforms and of course Willie) but I particularly enjoyed this title:

The Mets Are Doing a Good Job of Not Punching Me in the Face

Game time…time to go listen to Howie for an inning (I predict he’ll declare “about 40,000” at Petco) before drifting off. 10pm games all week adds up after a while.

Glad Someone Is Off Steroids!
