Equinoxal Ramblings

Must be the full moon. Is equinoxal a word? Let's get ready to ramble....

- There is an equi in equinox, so it has something to do with horses, no?

- I can't believe I missed International Talk Like a Pirate Day this year, I'm seriously starting to slack here at the Space Station. If you're wondering, it was last Sunday. ARRRR.

- The Republican gubernatorial candidate is from Buffalo. He uses Thurman Thomas to ward off racist claims by his detractors. He's only 6 points behind heavily favored Andrew Cuomo in the latest NY Post Poll (so I'm told at the bar tonight). I'm pretty apolitical, but there are fireworks in the future for this race for the highest post in New York State. Could he actually win?

- Former high school pal and baseball teammate Bones came out of hiding and commented on my last post, and let the cat out of the bag that I used to cover my high school football team on the sidelines for the local paper. Did I mention the team went 0-8?

- Anyone need Bills tickets?

- If you haven't caught the E Train on the Breeders Cup 360 site, you don't know what you're missing. The latest Charles Town video was classic.

- The Space Kid inspired my recent Alphabet Soup post. The Space Gal had him outfitted in a tee shirt we bought last year at the Churchill Downs gift shop with a big H is for Horse on it. Kid looks the part.

- I love Autumn. It's one of the treasures of living in a region that is fortunate to have all four seasons. Too bad they couldn't run the Breeders' Cup in September when the leaves are changing in the Northeast sometime. It's quite striking.

- What's up with California Racing and why can't they get their act together? Just askin.

- Speaking of Cali Racing, after attending last November's Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita Park, I could almost be convinced that it could serve as the permanent site (especially if they go back to dirt). Talk about killing the golden goose? The weather, the beauty, the local attractions and places to go all make sense to me...I feel kinda guilty saying it as an East Coast guy, but after being there...I get it. Who wants to sit in a cold, wet, damp environment (that's me not raising my hand) with the iffyness of keeping the races on the grass.....tell me that's not Churchill's worst nightmare....

- Heading to State Penn (ahem, Penn State) for the weekend and my annual scalping extravangza on College Ave (I love the thrill of the deal)....wish me luck.

I went to college (freshman year) with Jim Kelly.

Won't be long before we have another horseplayer (well-bred) in the world!

You should offer that as a prize in a contest at your blog. Just sayin'.

Bones said...

Bud - Thanks for the shout out, I forgot the football team went winless that year, they may have only dressed 15 players some game nights!
