Races, great and otherwise.


Another reason to love horse racing. Animal Kingdom barely lost in his bid to win the Preakness, the second race in the Triple Crown. And so far he hasn’t blamed his trainer, his jockey, the track, the starting gate…..

In fact, (bad pun alert), Animal Kingdom didn’t even claim his mother was a nag.

Herman Cain today entered the race for the 2012 Republican Presidential nomination. I think I speak for most Americans when I say “Who?”

Meanwhile, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels just announced he is NOT running for the 2012 GOP Presidential nomination. Apparently based on his competition, Daniels decided he did not have quite the combination of hubris and insanity required to run.

The first in a series?  You know you’re really a fan of the 2011 Giants when…

When someone tells you Tim Lincecum threw a three-hitter today, and your first response is “Did he win?”

Aflac has now announced an agreement to sponsor the Heisman trophy. Wonder if the company will offer free supplemental salary insurance for each year’s winners when they wash out in the NFL.

NFL players, who are already suing league for alleged antitrust violations, have again urged the appeals court to lift the lockout, and likened the league to a “cartel.” This prompted a response for an immediate apology. From OPEC.

The UConn men’s basketball program is losing two scholarships for the upcoming season as a result of a poor Academic Performance Rating from the NCAA. Apparently for starters, most of the team couldn’t spell “Academic Performance Rating.”

Meanwhile, It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.

Although had the world ended Saturday, Cubs fans all over would have been going “We could have been contenders.”

Sad but true from TC in Canada:   A good number of Canucks fans made the trek to SJ HP Pavillion for game 3 of the Western final. All were advised to purchase the new “LA Dodger Fan Encounter” Insurance available for trips to Calif.

    Well the good news is that the world didn’t end on Saturday. On the other hand, we still have New Jersey

  2. marc ragovin Says:

    Vegas oddsmakers put the chances of the world ending this past Saturday at 250 trillion to one. Making it a slightly better bet than the Cubs winning the World Series

  3. marc ragovin Says:

    When asked why the group that predicted the world’s end this past Saturday also didn’t foresee the Cubs come from behind win against the Red Sox a spokesman said “hey, we’re crazy but we’re not nuts.”

    The World as we know it may not have ended, but for a Boston fan it sure felt like it.

    “When someone tells you Tim Lincecum threw a three-hitter today, and your first response is “Did he win?””

    So true…reminds me of all the years I spent living near Chicago. The joke was – which was true – ‘hey, did you hear, the Cubs scored 22 runs today?’ ‘Oh yeah, who won?’ (The answer: Phillies – they scored 23.)

    I’ve seen Lincecum pitch twice this season: yesterday (and I thought the ump was going to squeeze him – and did in the first inning); and his previous start at Colo., and he didn’t appear to be in that game, mentally. His mediocre W-L record and excellent ERA shows that the Giants are still using discarded Mariners’ bats (which are still in mint condition).

    Yeah Nucks!
