Rusty

  • As baseball season only has about 1-2 weeks left I've tried to grind more. Unfortunately I'm really rusty. I'm not too upset with my game but gotta work on the multi-tabling and tilt stuff that I had ironed out in the past. Gonna drop back down to 50nl for about a week to get everything ironed out. This time it'll be much easier since instead of being properly rolled for 50nl I'll be overolled and move back to 100 after about 10k hands.
  • While I'm not a huge horse racing guru, I am a huge secretariat fan. I remember when ESPN was doing their Sportscentury, counting down the 100 greatest athletes I didn't think he should've been included since he was a horse. Then I saw his Belmont race and I was in awe. I've read a ton about him in recent years including Bill Nack's book.

  • It is the single most dominated sporting event that I had ever seen. He still holds the track record there and it won't be broken anytime soon. So I was very excited when I saw that a movie about the horse was in production, and then I saw the trailer. I know it's only 2 minutes of footage but it really looks like Disney is going to make it overly cheesy. I could be wrong but it looks as though they're going to make Penny Chenery the underdog and while it was rare to see a woman owning horses back then, she had a ton of success the year before with Riva Ridge and Secretariat was the horse of the year as a 2 year old, something that rarely happens.
  • There were some questions about him going into the 1973 derby as he had a bad run in the Wood Memorial however he was still the favorite and won pretty easily in both the Derby and the Preakness before his famous Belmont performance. Also, I really hope they don't try and make Sham the villain in this since if he was born in just about any other year besides 1970 he probably wins the triple crown. Nonetheless I'll still watch it and hope it meets my high expectations.
