I’ll never understand people who don’t drink alcohol

Maybe they know what alcohol can do to people, maybe they fear liver failure, maybe they had a family member or friend that died from an alcohol related accident, maybe they don’t feel the need or desire to drink, it’s really not that hard to comprehend.

Maybe they just think it tastes nasty? Of course, I almost wish I could stomach the stuff, since people tell me that it could help with my anxiety. But no.

Jordy Nelson being left open to sprint away again. I love football.

Either they dominate and make me feel sorry for the other team (except for the fact that the Vikings deserve all the bad luck in the world for being generally crap), they’re giving me heart attacks waiting until the LAST second to score a winning touchdown. I’m glad today was the former though, since the TV at work lost the channel they were playing on and we had to put the Bears game on and just watch the scrolling scores on the bottom. I’m glad it’s a 7:30 game next week, means I can actually watch it!

Kingston Hill, 2014 St Leger winner, not will run in the Champion Stakes at Ascot on 18 October 2014.Announced on 12 October.
Kingston Hill ran a great race when finishing fourth behind Trêve, Flintshire and Taghrooda in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe on 5 October.
Trainer Roger Varian is of the opinion that a 13-day gap between those two races is not long enough. - And I do not disagree.
Roger said via his website: "Kingston Hill will not run again this season. He ran a huge race in the Arc to finish fourth from the widest of draws … He is a horse with a great constitution, but we feel that this race comes just too soon after such a big effort in France … He remains in training and we are looking forward to campaigning him in the big middle distance races next year.”Read more here.
The classic winner’s name is the second big one to be deleted from the Champion Stakes list, as Australia's retirement was announced yesterday.

Thrilled to see that he’s staying in training for next year.

This is a dark day in racing history. There are many, many things I could say about the legendary Cigar, but that’s just it. You can’t pen legend. His glorious life spoke for itself. Thank you, Cigar, for all that you’ve given the sport, and thank you for letting me pay witness to your brilliance on countless occasion, even if it was just you grazing in your paddock or standing in your stall. That was almost as good as watching you galloping down the track. Rest in peace.
