Re: The VENT Thread

I hope it's nothing. Doctors offices are sometimes worse to deal with than not feeling well. Have you ever gone to a podiatrist? The entire right side of my body hurts and has for years, and as a last ditch effort I went to one and apparently my pronation is "horrific". My left collapses so badly th...

Re: TV Discussion Thread

Drogon melting the throne made no sense because they never really indicated how intelligent dragons were supposed to be in the show. Sad that it's over, only because the books and show have been an incredible source of fun for my family and I. I have so many good memories with them watching it, theo...

Re: 2019 Met Mile

Flo Rida, which everyone except myself is unhappy about.

I don't think the traffic will be that bad because I don't see that many people going. Although when we bought tickets there really weren't that many left.

Re: Baltimore vs. Stronach Group

An interesting article, because American society does not want $2 fans. The event will of course be priced out. It is the Sport of Kings after all. Not the Sport of Blue Collar and Middle Class. They don't make money off us peons. Apparently it has always been very bad, from what I hear. I think I'l...

Re: TV Discussion Thread

I always thought Bran was everything when I read the books so I'm not really unhappy with the ending... just very unhappy with the pacing, lack of character depth, random character changes and all the other obvious problems. I wish they'd spent this season defeating the Night King. They could have l...

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

oh my gosh thank you for posting that glorious win by dear Gander!! what a smart horse - he rode a perfect race - didn't bother anyone, stalked the leader - and knew when to make his move for the lead - one of my most favorite races ever! I remember watching it live and could not stop smiling after...

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

Re: Saez: I forgot to mention that the NBC commentators also surmised that the stewards were NOT happy with Luis because he still refuses to admit either he or his horse did anything wrong. An admission of the interference and an apology might have softened the stews' attitudes. And maybe Saez woul...

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

Didn't he threaten to sue the BC for phasing Lasix out a few years ago?

I'd say this is par. Rich old white guy doesn't get what he wants, news at 10. Being old doesn't give you a reason to be an ass. There are plenty of elderly people who remain pleasant.

So rarely in life do people get such massive moments to be gracious.

Re: Baltimore vs. Stronach Group

I would have not been opposed to a move to Laurel, until I actually visited Laurel a couple of years ago. No character whatsoever. Probably the worst track I have ever visited in that regard. Miles below Pimlico. You might as well run the Preakness at an old worn out outlet mall. Everything about t...

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

The majority of the people I see upset about this are people who just handicap and don't actually care about the horses. Telling. I don't agree with this. If anything, any serious bettor that I've spoken to agrees with it. Not that I know many. But I do know enough who care more about handicapping ...

I grew up playing war games. You don't just destroy your calvary like that. Why are there no scouts going into Dragonstone? What was the entire point of the White Walkers then!
