    What the hell is the big deal with horse racing? This saturday, ESPN will be hijacked by wall to wall coverage of the Kentucky Derby. And for what, two freaking minutes?!?!?! I understand that it's a big thing with all of the gambling degenerates out there, but seriously, why the hell would the average sports fan want to watch horce racing?

    I don't mind the racing so much, but there's WAY too much time between races. Seeing 10 or so can literally take the whole day.

    I bet on that horse birdstone, in one of the triple crown races, cause it sounded like that wr in neccessary roughness movie, who couldn't catch, and it hit for me at 33-1. I was lovin it. I loved hose racing after that. So I bet the races for fun. And this year I'm waiting for the odds, but I like the name Tuffyburg.

    Dayum, my horse was there for 3/4 the race in the top 2, then puff. Meanwhile, street sense comes from 19th position to win it.
