2014 KENTUCKY DERBY BLOG GAME, ANYONE CAN PLAY!!!


my ankles are stinging so i'll make this short. tomorrow is the Kentucky Derby. in the comments box below, predict which horse will win the race. the winner of this blog game is the one who correctly chooses the winning horse tomorrow. i have always gone chalk with these things, i always choose the horse who is the favorite according to the "experts". i have never won once with chalk, never. also, the Kentucky Derby has been an especially wonky race over the years, the horse that ends up crossing first always seems to be the one NO ONE was looking at, the 80-1 shot, it's always the one getting the least amount of talk. so this year, i'm going purely on the name, not the odds. i had to pick Uncle Sigh because that's an inside joke between Juli and myself ;)

CLICK HERE FOR THE LIST OF CONTENDERS.

thanks for playing, good luck, and we'll reconvene sometime in the near future for the results. the winner of this blog game gets 3 comments from me at your blog place. will the Triple Crown Curse finally be broken this year? no, no it won't, it won't ever again, but it's cool now, right? it's like the Cubs...

Uncle Sigh

I laughed so much when I read that. I even put my iPad down, that's how funny it was.

Well naturally, as Queen and all, I too shall be having Uncle Sigh. End of. The fact that he is even owned by ' wounded warrior stables' just adds to the serendipity. ;)

But just to be fair and give you all a chance at making a fistful of dollars, here's how I think it's gonna go down :

1st- Uncle Sigh
2nd- Dance with Fate
3rd- California Chrome
4th- Vicars in trouble

Superfecta.

You have poorly ankles sweet Phoenix? ( of course, of course)

thanks for playing, my lovely. my socks are all bunched together tight around my ankles. i'd pull them up but i have hooves...

....and they all thought that coming 14th was not so good, oh not so good at all. But Uncle Sigh was a wise horse (of course, of course) and he wanted to be placed 14th because it is 13 more than 1 and the double of 7 which implies biblical perfection. And for that, I love him.

he was actually in the lead there for awhile. I was in full Marbles face watching the race. everybody says that California Chrome will break the curse. that would be an internal sigh of relief...
