NBA looks kinda screwed. Much less of a history of forcing/disciplining owners to do anything.
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:20pm Danne D:

Stern let Sterling go on forever unchecked.

The new commissioner is Adam Silver.
Just remember Sterling Silver.
Easy!

When did OTB stop? Now that I think about it I haven't seen one in a while. Always makes me think of that Seinfeld episode.

California Chrome is the pick. Ran away with the Santa Anita Derby.

You can bet at the Meadowlands or other race tracks.
I believe the field is officially set Wednesday.
You can also bet off track in Bayonne:

Wasn't there an OTB on 42nd between 7th and 8th?

@Marcel - some still do possibly - the comments have reduced that of course

@Danne D - I see. I never thought of calling during one or thought it was possible.
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:38pm Danne D:

I really don't know. I haven't called a music show in over a decade probably (other than if they said they were taking calls over the air)

So a horse foaled on 5/14/11 turns 1 on 1/1/12 and 3 on 1/1/14. All the horses this year were born in 2011.

Why is our language so weird?
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 6:45pm Skirkie:

Why not just "Horse Mom" and "Horse Dad?"
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:45pm KP:

Now if a horse were to actually be born on Jan. 2, it would actually be very close to 2 by its first birthday. And 4 when it's legally 3. That would be huge advantage.
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:45pm Danne D:

@Skirkie you need to call on the demise of the Newark Bears.

RIP Newark Bears :(
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:46pm Carmichael:

What the hell kind of math is that? That means I should be 87 years old. Or 17.
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:46pm Danne D:

@KP nope it would be very close to 1 by it's first birthday.
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:47pm Marcel M:

I'm going with Candy Boy

I'm going with Ride On Curlin
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:47pm KP:

Right, Danne D. But a horse born on Dec. 31 would only be days old on its first birthday.

He's a mudder. His fadda was a mudder.
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:48pm KP:

They must breed them so they are all born around same time.
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:49pm Marcel M:

Would it be better or worse to have a younger horse?
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:49pm Danne D:

I'll go with Intense Holiday for the Kentucky Derby winner.

Largely b/c he's not the massive favorite and the first horse that was mentioned in the message board I looked at about it. Pletcher is a good trainer.
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:49pm KP:

Much worse, Marcel M
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:50pm Danne D:

I will resist the urge to game the system and pick every horse to win the Derby.
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:50pm KP:

Most breeders will try to breed so their foals are born as close to January 1st (but not before) as possible so they are not handicapped when its time to race. If a horse is born on 31 Dec it is automatically a year old the next day and there for will technically be a year younger than the other horses it will race against as a 2 and 3 year old. This is not desirable in racehorses.

i try to not eat meat. it conflicts with the fact that we have cats and cry when they die.

I went to a Yankee-Twins game in the Bronx with a Phillies hat on and got SO MUCH CRAP.

I've been to Yankee-Phillies game with Phillies stuff on and no one cared, but this Twins game? SO MUCH CRAP
  Mon. 4/28/14 6:55pm Ralphine:

I was at the game where Don Mattingly hit his first grand slam.
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:55pm Danne D:

Dude has a 30-year track record.

People saying he shouldn't own the team are just exercising their free speech.

Sorry dude.

WHAT AN ENDING!
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:57pm Danne D:

Who's the judge? His partners in ownership who decide they don't want to be associated with him as a business decision.

The sponsors who don't want to be associated with that garbage.

The fans who won't attend.

All of those folks have freedom too.
Avatar    Mon. 4/28/14 6:57pm KP:

You do not have freedom of speech in your place of work.

Last caller favors the Clippers having 4 players in a couple years when they can't get free agents to sign :)

THANKS EVERYONE! That was fantastic!
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 6:58pm Skirkie:

All freedom of speech means is that he won't be arrested.

The people have a right to choose to not support the team he owns. Until he's gone.
