What a downer
It's not that no one cares who wins today's Belmont Stakes race in New York. But, it's true that a lot less people will be drawn to the show.

I had my own numeric superstition involving I'll Have Another in the eleventh post position. That was linked to the fact that there have been eleven Triple Crown winners in history and eleven horses have gone to the Belmont Stakes since Affirmed won in 1978.

Here is a link to the remaining 11 contenders and their current odds.

With IHA scratched, all I'm left with is choosing the horse in the first post position (Street Life) and the one in the tenth position (Optimizer). That 1 + 10 = 11.  Deep use of logic, right?

For a long shot, I'll go with Guyana Star Dweej,who will be racing from the eighth spot. Doodnauth Shivmangal's choice of Kent Desormeaux  was interesting. Not because he is a Hall of Famer of course, but because of his Preakness suspension. Even a show finish would make for a nice story there.

Those are my top three. Hardly the most brilliant selections. Hardly the most wanted scenario for today's anticlimactic race.
Baseball cards

For those of us who are old enough to remember When Baseball Cards were King, the spring is always a special time of year.

Bygone days spent with elementary school days and family members opening packs of Topps cardboard gold never truly fade away.
