PREAKNESS GAME, ANYONE CAN PLAY
oh Kegasus, you there? i'm a Preakness Phreak, too, but, y'know, come on with that! okay, i guess we'll do this game, tomorrow being the Preakness, the second jewel, the anti-Kentucky Derby regalness, the beered-up derby, the derby "of the people", of the unwashed masses. gotta say off the bat I'll Have Another is just a terrible name for such a beautiful horse. it just doesn't roll off the tongue, and it looks bad in print. i mean the immediate newspapers all correlated I'll Have Another with a Cinco de Mayo alcoholic drink since the race was raced on May 5, so it just kinda cheapened things a bit. Secretariat, now THAT's a name, that's a royal moniker for a one-of-a-kind creature of God, that name looks good in print on a masthead...SECRETARIAT, rolls off the tongue with grandeur and grace. that being said, i am gonna choose I'll Have Another to win tomorrow just 'cause i can, it's my game, so sorry. please play, though, i can't live unless you play my sports games, internet public. you know the rules by now, right?
FIRST, CLICK HERE FOR A LIST OF THE PREAKNESS CONTENDERS TOMORROW
simply choose one of those horses whom you predict will win the race. if your horse choice actually wins the race, you'll win the beloved, sought-after prize of three of my hilarious comments on your blog.
just a word on the future: if I'll Have Another doesn't win tomorrow, i won't be doing a Belmont Stakes game...i mean, what's the point? if there's no Triple Crown at stake, it just doesn't reach the same level of excitement. are you getting the feeling that this next-Triple-Crown-winner dream might just remain a dream forever? it's been an eternity since the last Winner, that was way back when near my date of birth!!!
thanks for playing, my babies, and i'll see you tomorrow...
