My friend Bernie...the jackass.

“These days, the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in places such as Ecuador, Venezuela and Argentina, where incomes are actually more equal today than they are in the land of Horatio Alger. Who’s the banana republic now?”

Fun at the Breeder's Cup.

Here we are at last weekend's Breeder's Cup. I am representing my school as you can see. ECU has been good to me and my family so I'm going to show some school spirit. Also there is a picture of me and my degenerate horse race gambling buddy Marshall Gramm. Also that's me with my brother Rick and ECU Wall of Fame member Francis Vaughn. A good time was had by all.

The First Saturday in May.



Ok boys and girls, here are the old professor's rules of horse race gambling that have been purchased in blood and treasure over the years. Do yourself a favor and apply them to life. You'll get farther faster. Remember you heard it here first.

I am hard core handicapping. Good luck to all on Derby Day!

Professor Trackman's Rules of Horserace Gambling:


1. Do your handicapping for yourself.
2. If you can’t take the losses don’t bet.
3. Greed Kills.
4. Winners correct their mistakes next time out. Losers bet bigger trying to cover…which will never cover in the end.
5. Never get too high or too low.
6. Scared money don’t win.
7. Women and booze don’t mix with horses.
8. Don’t bet a beaten favorite coming back trying to do something he has never done before, anything.
9. Exotic bets should supplement straight bets and never supplant them.
10. Eat your betting money but don't bet your eating money.
11. Every time that gate opens, expect to be humbled.

November 10th is the Marine Corps Birthday...Semper Fi.


Remember, when you are sucking down your cafe latte, complaining that your Gameboy is broken and talking your country down, don't forget who paid the ultimate price for your freedom.

GENERAL WILSON'S BIRTHDAY TOAST
On the occasion marking the birthday of the US Marine Corps, 1978, onboard
Camp LeJeune, and in the presence of several thousand Marines and their
ladies, General Louis H. Wilson, CMC, arose to deliver his long awaited
address to the troops. He approached the rostrum, nodded to the CG's
(Base, FSSG and Division) and proceeded to explain to the captive masses
that he would be short on words that night - then turned to his bride, took a
glass and, amid absolutely DEAD SILENCE, offered this toast - and
promptly SAT DOWN.


LOVE
THE WONDERFUL LOVE OF A BEAUTIFUL MAID,
THE LOVE OF A STAUNCH TRUE MAN,
THE LOVE OF A BABY, UNAFRAID,
HAVE EXISTED SINCE TIME BEGAN.
BUT THE GREATEST OF LOVES,
THE QUINTESSENCE OF LOVES,
EVEN GREATER THAN THAT OF A MOTHER,
IS THE TENDER, PASSIONATE, INFINITE LOVE,
OF ONE DRUNKEN MARINE FOR ANOTHER.

THE WHOOPIN AND HOLLERIN WENT ON FOR A GOOD TEN MINUTES
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND SEMPER FIDELIS
