    Who's winning the Kentucky Derby tomorrow? Last five years, the favorite has NOT won.

    Well, Fierceness, the favorite, is starting in the 17 post, from which no horse has ever won. I truly think that streak ends with him this year.

    I also think the next two that have a shot are way on the inside, Dornoch and Sierra Leone. Sierra Leone is fast, likes to hold back at the start and come from behind, that's why I don't think the 2 post will hurt him. I think him being in the 2 post sets up Dornoch to break clean and fast and go wire to wire. Dornoch already beat Sierra Leone in a crazy race that had SL come last to first, the Dornoch turned on the last bit of speed to retake for a win by nose whiskers.

    That's insider information that we, the public, will probably never know. With everything they put into these horses, I bet they're all pretty much trained to shit when they see the gate. Probably spend months on that one skill.

    I have never been so jealous of something in recent memory. So ... How was it? Best moments? Most insane shit?

    Best / craziest moment was some story they told about how an Egyptian pharaoh had discovered wormholes. I was pretty trashed by that point and it was towards the end. Giorgio Tsoukalos was cool as shit, though.

    Not the Kentucky Derby, but my work did an outing to the Santa Anita Racetrack a few years back (before they killed all those horses filming Luck). They gave us each a hundred bucks to bet with, and since I was drunk, knew nothing about horses, and had free money to bet, I just started making odd bets and declaring things with extreme confidence. Things like "oh, he always breaks late" when my horse was trailing, and "he'll catch up down the stretch, but won't pass the leader." Somehow my inane ramblings turned out to be dead-on accurate, and I won every bet I made, to the point where I noticed some old gamblers started following my subsequent bets (which were equally nonsense). Was a good time.

    What are your picks for this derby? Pick 4 horses to finish 1st through 4th, and I'll place the bet. Let's see what you got. I've wagered about $300, mostly high paying exotic bets, like pick 4 and super high five, a few smaller bets that I hope might cover losses incase those exotics don't pan out.

    I researched and watched so much prep and qualifying stakes races for this year's derby, probably more than any other year since 2010. Mainly because I had the flu and didn't have much energy for anything else.

    My strategy for horse betting doesn't work for the Kentucky Derby, because I was basically just betting on horses that should have been in higher divisions. It's like betting on a major leaguer rehabbing in AAA. No one is exactly slumming it at the Kentucky Derby though.

    What the fuck is wrong with people? I don't even understand people that drop a McDonald's wrapper out the window at a traffic light. How do you possibly think dumping a whole can of trash in the ocean is okay?

    That is a good strategy for typical races. I limit myself to the triple crown, just for fun and excitement. I don't want excitement every weekend for races and horses most people will never even hear of.

    Another year I didn't win anything, this makes like three in a row. I think Sierra Leone got fucked by the Japanese horse Forever Young, he was banging the shit out of him the last 1/8 mile. And if SL had won I would have at least won most of my money back. But that's racing, and gambling.

    Do you know ANYTHING about cruise ships?

    On second thought, don't look into it; you'd shit yourself.

    I'm still pissed at how all the cruise ships sail under foreign flags to avoid US regulations on things like labor, emissions, dumping, etc, and then were all begging for handouts from the US during COVID due to the impact on their business. Fuck off ya little rats.
