Re: Day 2 BC broadcast follow along and discuss

I'm actually well aware of why she's famous (she's no "model")...it was more of a question stating how ridiculous her being famous is. ;) For the sake of comparison, I'd much rather see Kate Upton in her role in the winners circle ceremony than Bo Derek have a seat on the California Horse Racing Bo...

Everybody's got to be pretty happy that NBC didn't have to interview the track Vet for updates after any of the races, congrats!

Re: Place your BC bets

Sometimes first time lasix makes a length or two of difference....hoping that's the case, straight win bet on number 9 Found for Moore/O'Brien @ 5/1, seems like much better value than the obvious 3/5 shot?!?!?!

Some announcers calling the 42-24 USC victory a major upset! Uhhhh, better check with the guys in Vegas before saying something like that, U...
