You want racing?

THIS is racing!

I can see myself participating in this sport at many levels.

I could be an owner. Have a stable full of fillies. Drop down just before the big race with a bit of encouragement. Slip them some sugar cubes and apples for energy. Inspect their fetlocks. Give them a good slap on the hindquarters for good luck.

Or, maybe I could be a trainer? Instilling discipline. Carrot and the stick. That sort of thing. Bringing out the best in the athletes. Only using the riding crop and bridle when absolutely necessary.

I suppose if all else fails, I could always be a jockey.

A 6'2", 225 lb jockey.

The Sport Of Kings. Isn't that what they call it?

It's good to be King!

BTW, tip o' the crown to Joe from whom I shamelessly poached this video clip!

Thanks X, though I got it from
Tony and forgot to credit him. I think we've found our calling in life!

Not much going on at The Woodlands these days.

I say we form A League Of Our Own.

What about something for the women? Men in shape wearing speedos maybe?

No man looks good wearing speedos.

The ones who DON'T have the body for it look repulsive.

The men who DO have the body for it look either newly-gay or "mid-life-crisis-ish".

No man with a sound mind and a healthy body image wears speedos.

And neither should anyone else.
