Kentucky Derby Postponed

( culture / sports / horseracing )
This is a first, as far as we know. No, we didn't research it. We don't do a lot of research here. :) Anyway... The 146th Kentucky Derby will be rescheduled from May 2, 2020 to September 5, 2020. See kentuckyderby.com ... read more

NFL Conference Championship Games

( culture / sports )
For the first time ever, I actually like all four of the teams left on the road to the Super Bowl: Titans v. Chiefs - Sunday at 3:05 PM EST; and, Packers v. 49ers - Sunday at 6:40 PM EST. The Titans are my current team (since I live near Nashville); I have always liked the Chiefs and Packers, for some reason; and the 49ers used to be my team when ... read more

Folding Clothes

( culture / sports )
I thought I'd watch some sports while folding clothes (making up for my complete lack of doing chores yesterday). My choices were NBA basketball (where travelling is only called after 6 or 7 steps), bull riding (where I just feel sorry for the bulls), or a dog show (where I just couldn't care less). My sister Lucy would be in TV heaven, but I had t ... read more

My English Premier League Team

Trying to decide which English Premier League team I should consider "my team." Very important. Leaning toward either Liverpool FC (because I always liked the Beatles) or Plymouth Argyle Football Club (because my first car was a Plymouth, and I always l ... read more

No More Penalty Shootouts!

( culture / sports / soccer )
I'm a huge soccer fan, but absolutely hate penalty shootouts. That is no way to decide a game. The winning team needs to be determined by playing the game, not through penalty kicks. That's like deciding an American football game by having five or six players from each team line up and kick field goals at the end of the game, or decid ... read more

American Pharoah Vs. Secretariat, Who Would Win?

( culture / sports / horseracing )
Interesting! The 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah ran the sixth-fastest Belmont Stakes ever, but if he was racing against Secretariat's record time in 1973, he would have been a distant second. Watch the two races side-by-side. Source: ... read more

Parents Code Of Ethics

Signing my daughter up for softball, I just had to laugh at this (stripped down) Parents Code of Ethics: I will encourage good sportsmanship I will place the emotional and physical well-being of my child ahead of my personal desire to win.

World Cup 2014

( culture / sports / soccer )
I love World Cup soccer (football/futbol to most of the world), so life is good now with all the games on. I'm ticked at ABC/ESPN for limiting all USA games to ESPN, which I can't see because we don't subscribe to cable TV. Of course, they do that to force people like me to subscribe, which I won't ... read more

Hollywood Park, What A Run It Had!

( culture / sports / horseracing )
Today (December 22, 2013) is the last day of racing at Hollywood Park before it's torn down. It's sad, but that part of town has been the 'hood for several decades now, so it's no surprise no one wanted to go there.I worked there once, briefly, with the harness horses. It was back in the 80's, and it was not during a race meet, but just a plac ... read more
