BACK IN BLACK WITH BEASTMODE

BEASTMODE IS BACK...IN BLACK AND SILVER. 

Marshawn Lynch formally signed with his hometown Oakland Raiders today after months of speculation and somehow convincing the Seahawks to release him.

Lynch is one of the most respected and beloved players in the NFL, not just Seahawks fans, but people everywhere love Marshawn and what he does on and off the field, in the way only Marshawn can.

I know what you're thinking; "If Beastmode wanted to "unretire" why didn't he just go back to the Seahawks and go right back to straight winning?" Well, is possible he may be holding a bit of a grudge against Pete Carroll after the worst call in the history of football cost the Hawks a repeat victory in Superbowl XLIX? I sure as hell would be, and not just for the money it cost me on blown wagers...

Anyway, I love Marshawn Lynch, you know why? Cause he flat out doesn't give a shit. His genuine love of the game transcends all the hype and shoe deals, the norm of pro athletes concentrating more on "trying to get paid" than winning games.  Marshawn is seriously, "All 'bout that Action Boss!"

Do you know what Beastmode wants to do? He wants to stomp on the chest of his opponent as he pounds your team into submission. He wants to pulverize your team's will to win because his will is stronger than yours, and your team is going to find out the hard way. Marshawn wants to play in your face, semi truck football in his hometown, on his terms, and not the "we're resting our players today cause we have a big game in two weeks," kind of crap you see today in professional sports.
He ain't havin it.

All of Seattle will be very, very sad to see Beastmode go and we will miss every Skittles soaked moment of watching him play. But hopefully, we can all be happy for him for doing what he does, following his heart which has always beat strong for Oakland.
Fireworks baby Fireworks.

We'll see you in the Superbowl Marshawn, Seattle thanks you for keeping it really real.
Fo real tho.

That's all I got,

Prepping to Prep

Greetings Fearless Few,

Best laid plans and best intentions aside, I have been remiss to comment lately on Horseracing or Gambling in general because, well quite frankly, I haven't done any! I am on a VICE-free isle of good ole fashioned work, work and more work that leaves little free time for anything but. 

ALAS Prep Race Season is here and I should be my more in the mix as to not let my loyal readers go hungry for action; so stay tuned for more updates, play by plays, interesting anecdotes and devastating defeats at the wire....

That's all I got,

PREAKNESS POST POSITION DRAW

Well, how did you do on the Derby?  Well in one of the slowest Derby's I can remember Nyquist not surprisingly beat a less than stellar field to win the first leg of this years Triple Crown, American Pharaoh he ain't.

So the Preakness is almost here and draw just finished leaving Nyquist in the sweet spot Post 3, perfect in a lack luster field of wannabe challengers. Only two horses from the Derby are running in the Preakness, and it is second place Exaggerator and "NO chance in hell Lani" have chosen to go again.

There doesn't seem to be much competition for the Derby winner in this one and it may just be a walk, but I'll be keeping my eyes on Stradivari as a possible outside spoiler, and Uncle Lino is deceptively dangerous, stay tuned faithful few....

2016 PREAKNESS POST POSITIONS (WITH ODDS AS OFF 5/18)


1.) Cherry Wine, C. Lanerie, 20-1

2.) Uncle Lino, F. Perez, 20-1


3.)  Nyquist, M. Guttierez, 3-5


4.) Awesome Speed, J. Toledo, 30-1


5.) Exaggerator, K. Desormeaux, 3-1


6.) Lani, Y. Take, 30-1


7.) Collected, J. Castellano, 10-1


8.) Laoban, F. Geroux, 30-1


9.) Abiding Star, J.D. Acosta, 30-1

2016 KENTUCKY DERBY DELUGE IS HERE!




I know, I know, I KNOW! 

I've been gone forever. Temporarily gone, but not forgotten; like your beaten up, broke down first VW Squareback that you lovingly drove into the ground, or your first forbidden sip of tasty, tasty whiskey from Mr. O's liquor cabinet, you think of me fondly and often. 

I know it's a big, big, responsibility, and I've let you down. This whole "adult life" thing is really getting in the way of my pithy insights and paranoid ramblings about how everything in the world is fixed. 

Too many hours of real work, to many nights of sleep deprivation, too many drinks mixed and made, too many dog day afternoons....and that leaves little time for the important stuff...

BETTING HORSES, SWEET VICTORY, AND THEN WRITING ABOUT IT ALL!
(This years Derby Deluge will be in presented in an abbreviated format due to the fact that for the first time in what I believe is 25 long years, I will not be betting the Derby race by race in my usual all day session at "my office." I will instead be speed handicapping tomorrows card and placing all my bets for the day today, in what can only be hailed as a Pick-and-Pray-Holy-Crap-Shoot-Style Format, due to the constraints of adult life....

So Stay tuned for any juicy tidbits or wise guy wisdom to follow, but for now I do have a couple things to say about tomorrows card:

How on Earth did Baffert not go back to the well with Espinoza for this one? Unbelievable!

Baffert + Gary Stevens = getting all my money.



Good Luck. Get Well. Win Everything.

Thats all I've Got,
