The Fastest Two Minutes In Live Comment Sports

5/3/08 in Horse Racing   |   CriticalFanatic   |   respect



This is the worst idea ever ... so naturally, we're going to roll with it.

Pretty sure this has to be the first ever two-minute live blog, but whoever can post the most during the race wins countless thumbs up and FanIQ Fan Points.

Above is a sappy montage of all the stretch runs dating back to 1986. Enjoy.

I'm sticking with Cowboy Cal as my pick.

It has nothing to do with the sport. The infield is all about drinking and gambling. Oh, and boobs.

Please tell us more about these "boobs" you speak of.

What will being there live do to convince me it's a sport?  The midgets are there to make sure the horse goes straight, and to occasionally beat on them to get them to go faster.  What ability that must take.

I just got back from being at the Derby infield for the weekend. They'll be more on this later, but let me just say that whether you think horse racing is a sport, everyone needs to go to the infield at least once.

 

Sad about Eight Belles. It took a while before that got through to the infield. Puts a damper on the $70 exacta win my group won thanks to her.

Whoever gave me the PQ's need to get a sense of humor.

I don't know about you, but I was glued to the TV.

As Dwight Schrute put it:

"I believe could win the Kentucky Derby and I wouldn't need a horse to do it. I could do it on a motorcycle."

Looks like we have a new Barbaro. That would be Eight Belles. Except this one didn't win the Kentucky Derby. So no one will care.

Big Brown took a dump on everyone. I approve.

I hope he takes a dump on the Triple Crown.
