She's All That!


Wire to Wire!

Another 2 seconds and Mine the Bird pulls ahead. Would've been nice -- ever seen another sport where the jockey rides one horse to victory, switches, and then talks sh-t about the first horse?

Seriously. You have to wonder what we would now be talking about if the jockey had stayed on Mine that Bird. It was looking like an exact replay of the Derby but this time MtB gets caught in the crowd and is forced to the outside while making his push, losing at the minimum those 2 seconds.

well, in other sports, there aren't jockeys.

Picking up on Big Daddy's point, it always strikes me as odd how other jockeys will conspire against the Triple Crown hopeful. They'll specifically keep the horse from getting to the rail and push him to the outside, and if Mine the Bird had not won the Kentucky Derby, he probably wins yesterday because he's allowed to get to the inside. I understand they each want the glory for themselves and think maybe "next year" they'll be on the right horse, but for the good of the sport, it's more than desperate for a winner.

And Dude, I suppose an analogy would be a coach in another sport switching midseason and then talking smack about his former players.
