Smokeshow City Finally Makes His Racing Debut Tonight At 8pm Live on TVG




So today is the much anticipated debut of Smokeshow City.   Literally feels like we’ve been waiting 10 years for him to race.   (I own Smokeshow with McShay and Elio.  Original Powerhour Trio) He was supposed to race last 4th of July and then hurt his ankle.  It took forever for him to get healthy.  He’s been to Florida to Suffolk Downs, back to Florida and now is in California and running at Golden Gate Fields.   Almost couldn’t sleep I was so nervous last night.   Morning line has him at 4-1., but the experts are basically giving him no chance.




But I don’t care about the experts because when I walked into the racing office to get my owner’s license yesterday this is the picture they had hanging on the wall?  Do you believe in omens?  Because I sure as fuck do.

It Appears The Demise Of the New England Patriots Has Been Greatly Exaggerated




The difference between us and every single team in the NFL?   We don’t lose 2 in a row.    Never.


Sidenote – The other headline I was debating for this blog was “WHIPPED!” with the picture of the Vikings fan with the switch/tree branch, but I thought I’d have some class.  Plus I just blogged it anyway.  Old blogger trick.

Pats Vs. Vikings “No Way We Start 0-2 Right?” Live Blog




Honestly I’m totally confused on this game.   It’s exactly what I said in the NFL Pick Em Show.  If I didn’t know the decals on the helmet and wasn’t a Pats fan I’d be all over the Vikings this week.   But I do know who is who.  One team is the best franchise in football over the past decade and one is one of the worst.    That’s really all there is to it.  Forget the X’s and O’s.   The Patriots rarely lose 2 games in a row.   The line is all over the place ever since Peterson got deactivated.  Honestly I don’t think it makes that huge of a difference.   I’m jumping on the Pats just cause they are the Pats.

Is Adrian Peterson Getting A Bad Rap?



CBS – According to law-enforcement sources, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson beat his 4-year-old son with a tree branch as a form of punishment this summer, an incident that allegedly resulted in multiple injuries to the child. According to reports, Peterson has been indicted in Montgomery County, Texas for injury to a child. The “whooping” – as Peterson put it when interviewed by police – occurred in Spring, Texas, in May. Peterson’s son had pushed another one of Peterson’s children off of a motorbike video game. As punishment, Peterson grabbed a tree branch – which he consistently referred to as a “switch” – removed the leaves and struck the child repeatedly. The beating allegedly resulted in numerous injuries to the child, including cuts and bruises to the child’s back, buttocks, ankles, legs and scrotum, along with defensive wounds to the child’s hands. Peterson then texted the boy’s mother, saying that one wound in particular would make her “mad at me about his leg. I got kinda good wit the tail end of the switch.”Peterson also allegedly said via text message to the child’s mother that he “felt bad after the fact when I notice the switch was wrapping around hitting I (sic) thigh” and also acknowledged the injury to the child’s scrotum in a text message, saying, “Got him in nuts once I noticed. But I felt so bad, n I’m all tearing that butt up when needed! I start putting them in timeout. N save the whooping for needed memories!” In further text messages, Peterson allegedly said, “Never do I go overboard! But all my kids will know, hey daddy has the biggie heart but don’t play no games when it comes to acting right.”

According to police reports, the child, however, had a slightly different story, telling authorities that “Daddy Peterson hit me on my face.” The child also expressed worry that Peterson would punch him in the face if the child reported the incident to authorities. He also said that he had been hit by a belt and that “there are a lot of belts in Daddy’s closet.” He added that Peterson put leaves in his mouth when he was being hit with the switch while his pants were down. The child told his mother that Peterson “likes belts and switches” and “has a whooping room.”

Ok I’ve been travelling last couple days so I haven’t really seen how people have been reacting to this Adrian Peterson story. Therefore I’m not sure if what I’m about to say is pretty much what everybody else is saying or not.  I basically think Adrian Peterson is getting a bad rap here.  Yes what Adrian Peterson did was clearly wrong, but nowhere in the same stratosphere as what Ray Rice and Greg Hardy did. Like those guys should be kicked out of the league. Peterson needs parenting lessons and counseling. Greg Hardy shouldn’t be playing today, but I wouldn’t get on my soapbox if AP did. Those guys beat up women with the intent to hurt them because they were angry. Peterson however misguided he may have been was trying to teach his kid a lesson. If anything nowadays parents are too lenient on their kids. They let them get away with murder.There is no doubt that Peterson went overboard, but it’s the lesser of two evils in my mind.


I guess it boils down to what you think Peterson was trying to do or prove. For me the way he has acted since it happened, the texts he sent after it happened, all make me think he’s telling the truth with his intent. That he loves his kids and was trying to teach them hard lessons. He fucked up no doubt, but I’m not judging his character as a man or a dad because of this. I just think he needs to go to the Ditka school of parenting. If you’re gonna hit a kid it’s gotta be in the butt.

Rutgers Fans Doing Exactly What I’d Expect Them To Do And That’s Troll the Shit Out Of Penn State Nutjobs







What’s the over under until how long till a crazy Penn State fan just snaps and murders somebody for making fun of JoePa?   I mean it’s not a matter of if, it’s just a matter of when.   Because Penn State fans literally lose their mind when you make fun of Paterno and everybody knows it.  No fanbase tis easier to troll than them.  Just call Penn State Diddler U and say Joe Paterno is in hell and Penn State fans go bananas.  It’s like when Reggie Jackson is told to kill the Queen in the Naked Gun.  They just lose all sense of time and space and become certified psychos.   It’s the best.
