New poster comes out of nowhere. In his first five (5) posts, he takes three shots at the brilliantly objective "1st Over" and uses a fourth to try and justify eight-race cards. Obviously violates a critical OH Lee/undercover building block: impatient; failed to spend proper time in incubator before coming out as Arlington plant.
Also, even the name - "Bucksboy" - is taken from one of the greatest horses of one of RL Duchossois's greatest "enemies" - the estimable Noel Hickey.
So, Apee & Wigs, given the fact that both are of fair-to-middling IQs at best, figure, "Hey, who does everyone know Dick hates? We'll use that as his 'tag' on "BTW." Nobody will figger'."
Both are thrilled. Apee hops on table and does his thing. Howard - real name MILTON Howard Sudberry, btw - quietly grabs a photo of "That Girl" and steals away to do his thing.
So, just to be safe, all future references to "Bucksboy" will be "Justinboy" - just to be on safe side.
Other Q.: Any bartenders at "Mr. D's" cause any brawls yet this meet? Reportedly got kind of embarrassing last year. Pedigreed table dancing is much more socially acceptable.
Great text from a SAP food guy a few minutes ago: "XX, tension has given way 2 gallows humor out here-Apee&Wigs is universally understood-good job"
We're getting way too much credit for the "Apee & Wigs" thing; that was organic and obvious; even a bit of a ripoff from an AP staffer; kind of like what Brian Wilson did with Chuck Berry and "Surfin' USA."; they were punchlines backstage at SAP long before "1st Over."
Food guy earlier said they're trying to make deep-fry oil last for full weekends, meaning after Saturday, buy french fries only at your own risk. Unless you like cold gnarl.
Love music, there's nothing better when driving, and one starts to get a bit tired. Bam that song comes on, volume goes up, and you get a second wind. That's Thunderstruck by ACDC! My HS era was hair bands, then Nirvana set the stage late 80's into the 90's. All music I still love listening to.
AP's problem isn't the number of races or the poly itself. Its problem is that its poly stopped being formful mid 2013. Throw that poly in the middle of a horizontal and I've lost interest. You might as well roll the dice or play your favorite numbers on the poly. Why would a bettor play that when they look around the country and see betting sequences that they feel comfortable with?
