They don't sing the old lyrics at Churchill Downs anymore. I think they use "Youngin's"
Avatar 6:07pm Cheyenne:

Mint juleps are fucking gross! And I HATE THE DERBY. That is all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Folsom:

I'm surprised Jim is still coming to the station since he put down that big bet on Leicester.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm tomasz.:

i wish to try one of these mint juleps
Avatar 6:08pm Cheyenne:

Horsies are cool. But the Derby is shady.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Carmichael:

They probably sing about "darkies" too.

Hey all

We should start some kind of cat-racing league. First we have to figure out how to get the cats to race around a track.
  6:09pm Listener Robert:

Chalmers, I guess that's because "African-Americans" doesn't scan well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm tomasz.:

lmao "Gunrunner"
Avatar 6:10pm Marcel M:

I've never had a mint julep
  6:11pm Listener Robert:

Cliff, there are various races of animals that are thought to be too much trouble to train, such as insects, where the start is the center of a circle, and the finish is the edge.
  6:11pm chalmers:

A guy from Leicester also won the world snooker championship yesterday. It's 5,000-1 that I will ever understand the rules of that game. I always end up singing from "The Music Man."

where in the heck do they get these bizarre horse names?
Avatar 6:12pm Danne D:

Yay Sportsytalk :)
Avatar 6:12pm Danne D:

There should a horse named Sportsyhorse :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm tomasz.:

had to get the word "Deflategate" to come out in my subtitles the other day
  6:13pm Listener Robert:

I'm sure you COULD train cats to run around a track. because they train cats to do all sorts of tricks. And if they had a "rabbit' as in greyhound racing, it'd be even easier.
Avatar 6:14pm Danne D:

5000/1 is bookie odds too - that is the price the bookie is comfortable giving. The real odds were probably much higher.

I'm not aware that there was a helluva lot of people that put money on Leicester though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm tomasz.:

yeah my mind was blown today when i found out you guys don't have promotion and relegation in anything
Avatar 6:14pm Danne D:

Hard to think of a comparison to Leicester City.
Some say Miracle on Ice but that only happened over 6 games. Leicester had to do this over a 38-game schedule which is mind blowing.
Avatar 6:16pm glenn:

apparently tom hanks bet a large sum on l.c.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm tomasz.:

yoooo what about the sports guy who did the gas mask bong hit. i like him
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Cliff:

Listener Robert: I saw some TV show about cat shows where they had them go through an obstacle course, and their owners would have to keep waving a feather in front of their faces so that they wouldn't get too distracted...the cats would keep stopping in the middle to lick themselves or watch imaginary insects or whatever. :)
  6:16pm Listener Robert:

A visiting cousin got Smoky, a neighborhood cat, to run around in circles. My cousin (forgot whether it was Brucie or Diane who discovered this; maybe even Allen, their brother) dragged a stick of branches on the grass in our front yard while spinning in a circle. Apparently s/he knew pussy cats love chasing that.
Avatar 6:16pm Danne D:

This sounds great :)
  6:18pm Listener Robert:

Cliff, I have similar experiences coaching children in football. This evening because it's so gloomy, I'm skipping our spring training clinic. I guess cats bore easily too.
  6:19pm chalmers:

@Danne D Not as shocking as LC and in retrospect it doesn't seem too crazy, but Northwestern going 8-0 to win the B1G in '95 without having been over .500 in decades is the closest in my memory.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm tomasz.:

Sochi, yeah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm tomasz.:

owned by Putin
Avatar 6:23pm Danne D:

@Chalmers that was another example I though of as Northwestern had been terrible for years. But they had teams that were in the top 2 as recently (relative to '95) as 1971 - but yeah they certainly came to mind.

One could argue Rutgers run to the final 4 in '76 but they didn't win it all and that run was heavily aided by a very very favorable bracket (conferences were limited to no more than 2 teams in the tourney I think) as well as the fact that regionals were actually regional (and there wasn't much in the way of competition in the East regional as a result).

  6:23pm Listener Robert:

Aw, come on, Bronwyn! "If you can call it a job" refers to its supposedly being fun. The person who says it is supposed to be envious, I think.

Reason is a Libertarian magazine
Avatar 6:23pm Danne D:

@glenn Dave Hill would dispute that assertion.
  6:25pm Listener Robert:

Gary Johnson is SEEKING the nomination of the Libertarian Party for president, again, but John McAfee & another are also contenders.
Avatar 6:26pm glenn:

sigh. libertarians.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Macho Ayn Randy Savage:

remember when the libertarian party earnestly tweeted about a future where married gay couples defend their marijuana crops with their legal machine guns
  6:27pm chalmers:

@Danne D Rutgers '76 is a a great run, but I agree that they got a break with the competition. I think Penn '79 had a tougher path (UNC, 'Cuse, St. John's). Of course, they got obliterated by Magic's Spartans.
Avatar 6:28pm Danne D:

Another champion that came to mind as a possible comparison to Leicester would be Alan Kulwicki winning the 1992 NASCAR championship as an Owner/Driver. Though he did finish 8th a couple seasons prior so I still think Leicester is crazier.
Avatar 6:28pm glenn:

meh. i'm not too worried. i live in a place with 25% of the world's fresh water.

Dang you coulda been Mogul Bronwyn C!

Chandra Levy - who had an affair with Congressman Gary Condit.

Gary Condit's son was always on the news wearing a Members Only jacket and washing his Camaro.

i'm backing Gunrunner
  6:34pm chalmers:

But Condit didn't murder Chandra Levy. That's also the answer to "What was the media feeding frenzy when 9/11 occurred?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm tomasz.:

hockey is good bc fights, basically
Avatar 6:35pm glenn:

oh, and the raptors beat indiana, too.
Avatar 6:37pm glenn:

that's not true at all, tomasz. fighting in hockey is way down, and will soon be illegal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm tomasz.:

in that case my interest in it will go from "watching fights on YouTube" to "zero"
Avatar 6:40pm glenn:

the maple leafs DID suck. things have changed, believe me.

Avatar 6:44pm Danne D:

I knew if anyone would like to WWI take it'd be Bronwyn :)
Avatar 6:45pm Danne D:

@chalmers yeah - Condit wasn't involved, unfortunately he was as convincing as William H Macy's character was in "Fargo".

(the actor was convincing at playing an unconvincing person)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Carmichael:

The Rock's dad was professional wrestler Rocky Johnson. Sr. Johnson married wrestler Peter Maivia's daughter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm tomasz.:

laughing a lot at "The Rock Clock"
  6:49pm Muttly:

I recently caught a gameshow taping and the celeb guests were Martha and Snoop Dogg. She was wicked awkward there, too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Second pick of the draft, Carson Wentz, gets off the plane in Philly and immediately gets booed by angry Eagles fans. www.philly.com...
  6:50pm Listener Robert:

Of course you can watch a regatta at no charge; what are they gonna do, put up a curtain along the shore?
Avatar 6:53pm glenn:

philly fans would boo a winning team.
