Mex vs USA Soccer Qualifying Round
Impossible to understate what a terrible decision it was to play Beasley last night. Not only did he get absolutely smoked on what turned out to be their only goal, he CLEARLY is not going to be playing for the team during the World Cup and you are taking valuable playing time on a big stage away from a younger player who could be developing. Just shocking stupid all the way around.

2017 Winter/Spring Horse Racing Thread - Triple Crown Season!!
This is what I've come up with so far. Belmont is a pretty uninspiring race IMO, I have significant problems with all the contenders. Met Mile and Woody Stephens are amazing betting races, will definitely be some prices in there somewhere. I have to step out for awhile but should hopefully be back around the 6th race. EDIT - Hmmm cant link to images for some reason. Will have to try later.

President Donald Trump's second 100 days
Pretty simple discussion. Congress CAN easily impeach if they want to. The statute is broken with any attempt to INFLUENCE the outcome. He doesn't have to issue a formal command for it to be obstruction. If you look at the entire context of that discussion and can't describe it as an attempt to influence the outcome of that investigation, you are hopelessly biased. SHOULD they impeach is a different question. Clinton lied about a blowjob, this was a violation that was impeachable, but in the end people decided that the circumstances didn't warrant it. In this case, it should come ...

2017 Winter/Spring Horse Racing Thread - Triple Crown Season!!
Some early notes after looking at Bruno, TG, BRIS, and some youtube vids of other cappers talking. I rarely try to talk ppl off horses, especially if they are at longer odds, but I really hope no one is planning on playing 11 Epicharis, who may actually scratch if the rumors are true. Bruno gave him a 1 star workout on 6/6, and he had to take the day off Thurs because he was lame. If he hits the board, it would be a small miracle IMO. Large forward move and multiple regressions are frequent in this race due to the unusual distance, but the one thing that is pretty standard is that large ...

2017 Winter/Spring Horse Racing Thread - Triple Crown Season!!
TG is showing Tapwrit to be the key horse, and pretty much agree with them on that. Still need to order a workout report tomorrow. If IWC runs his race, may not be any value in the Belmont, but think there could definitely be on some of the undercard events. I should hopefully get out of work today in time to look at the late pk4, though the crazy 2m stakes is a little daunting. And no Chantal at Belmont is a bummer. KK you will be happy to know I'm fully immersed in NYRA now. Using my NYRABets acct for free TG products. HD feed. It's top-top

Turning over of documents does not indicate Flynn has "turned" on Trump. 5th amendment does not cover documentation. he was facing a contempt charge if he did not turn them over. This isn't a surprise, or necessarily big news, unless something is uncovered in those docs. The fact that he doesn't want a contempt charge doesn't mean there is anything nefarious in the docs. Anyone who is stating they know for sure that there is or is not stuff in those docs is completely full of shit. We will find out eventually.

I've given NYRA racing quite a hard time over the years (mostly because I'm so terrible at it), but winter AQU meet aside (which resembles Beulah Park), I want to credit NYRA for doing such a fantastic job with their upgraded digital offerings. Free HD video feed on AND their NYRA mobile app, you can push a single button and see it on your phone anywhere/anytime. Lots of pre-race discussion from Serling/Maggie/Mig, and while much of it is normally useless banter that you end up tossing, it is helpful sometimes giving the races a second thought. A shame their stakes card today got so ...

President Donald Trump's second 100 days
Compared to what will go wrong if these cuts go thru' very little. Our current level of government doesn't require this level of debt. We just have this incredible fascination with paying CEOs 500X the avg working pay when in every other country the number is about 20X. Apparently they "deserve" it more in the US, they "earned" it that much better than CEOs in every other country. As a result, we let private industry and 1%ers horde cash instead of using it to pay for government. And we have debt as a result. In the 35 years from 1945 to 1980 when the highest tax rates were 50% and ...

President Donald Trump's second 100 days
Taking money out of the hands of 99% of the population so the 1% can horde even more is a pretty laughable way to make the economy "take off". When all of these public employees (or ppl in roles that depend on public funds) get fired due to budget cuts, they wont have any money to spend in the private economy and everything will crater. Back in 1980 when the 1% only owned 8% of the wealth, that tactic yielded some temporary positive results. But trying the same thing now when the 1% already owns 30-something% of the wealth shows an incredible lack of understanding how economics work.

I'm guessing 2chis and Beldar needed armed guards to get out of wherever they were and our out celebrating. Those of you who were able to get tris or supers with the 8 in there should have done very, very well.

Yeah, that was a really solid effort there by the 6, especially given she raced down on the rail which seems to not be very good at all on that turf. I expect some big things from her this summer, just needed that one under her belt. Happy to get the 10 home at the bigger odds, but they really bet her down to 9-2

The way speed is holding up so far, just cant see Always Dreaming losing this. Reports are he still has all the energy he had in the Derby and there is a LONG history of Derby/Preak repeat performances, especially for horses who are not dead closers. Im never mad at anyone tossing a favorite and trying to make a score at a big price, but I'm not going to be doing that here. Late Pk4 R10 - 7 and 6 likely to be monsters in this race at short prices and I'm keying them on my pk4. Might rebet it or play a double also using 10 and 3. 10 should have nice odds and outside horses have been ...

Preak is a definite chalk fest. Really the only question is whether or not Classic Empire can catch AD, and I'm leaning against that happening. But certainly not impossible. Thomas Herding report from the Derby is available here Haven't looked over much else in the card yet and can't even really start playing until about the late pk4 due to little league, so I won't have much to share today. I probably will make a late pk4 ticket and post it here later. Good luck!

Trump fired Comey
Do I have hard proof that the FBI is formally investigating the information in the Steele Dossier' No, I don't. but it would be an incredible dereliction of duty if they were not, given how much of it still appears to be true after over 6 months. If they were, that would certainly explain a rash-action firing by Trump, as opposed to this laughably stupid assertion that Trump wanted him gone since day 1, waited over 100 days to fire him, and then when he did, did not have a replacement ready to go despite having over 100 days to pick one.

You are so blinded by your ridiculous bullshit that even when a thought in your head is proven 100% incorrect, you still defend yourself for thinking it, deflect, and move onto new strawmen.

He's fine, already seen pics of him walking back to the stables. Connections say he just got really spooked, apparently he was really hyper in the paddock too and used most of his energy. I don't think the jockey was in control of what was going on there. It was more like a bucking bronco ride at the rodeo and he's lucky to have stayed on.
