  • So you know how after every big horse race, some asshole always has the nerve to say that the horse really wanted it and that's why it won and the whip and the guy sitting on top of it yelling at it had nothing to do with it? So does that mean Big Brown is a jerk quitter?...Yahoo! Sports
Another thing...I only caught a little of the ABC telecast of the Belmont but I happened to turn it on at the part where Kenny Mayne and Hank Goldberg were openly discussing their gambling strategies, complete with on-screen graphics. Isn't that kinda crazy?

Like, if on TNT, Charles Barkley openly discussed the parlay he was running that evening on a couple NBA match-ups, he'd be vilified. But it was okay to promote gambling, during the daytime mind you, during a live, national broadcast on network television? Is it just me or is that weird?
