Trifecta Thursday: Can American Pharoah Win The Triple Crown?

ap-300x168

We never learn, do we? if last year taught us anything it’s that no, we will never see another Triple Crown winner. I mean California Crown was such a lock and failed how can we ever trust another favorite at the Belmont Stakes?

The problem is three-fold, first, there will be “fresh” horses that have not had the grueling ride of the first two legs of the Triple Crown. Second, the track is much longer so horses that win the first two legs (shorter tracks) run out of gas on the longer (mile and a half) track at Belmont. Finally, it’s REALLY FUCKING HARD to win three high profile races in a row! There’s a reason we haven’t seen a Triple Crown winner in a million years (note: estimate) and may never see another one in our lifetime.

Whitesnake Bites Back

ws

Here’s a new video from a blast from the past, Whitesnake. Verdict: The hair stands the test of time!

Whitesnake have just released another music video from their twelfth studio album. You remember Whitesnake, right? The band with the classic “Here I Go Again” video where I think we can all agree Tawny Kitaen was sexy, but never super hot. The video had three keyboards, sex on a car and did I mention the three keyboards?

The video for “Soldier Of Fortune” comes from The Purple Album. The candlelight let’s you know “we’re slowing it down a bit for this one folks.” What is there to say here, I mean just look at Coverdale’s hair! Actually look at the whole band – I feel like I’m watching an infomercial for Wen hair care products…

10 Cars You Don’t Want Your Boyfriend Driving

neon

It’s not all about size, or looks, and is usually not about the car you drive. However, sometimes the car you drive can cost you the girl. The good news about owning one of these cars is not being bothered with picking up discarded panties after date night. No worries there! Here are ten cars you don’t want your boyfriend driving.

Now hold on, this isn’t about money. There’s modesty to someone driving a beat up car or weathered truck. Even small, compact cars work for some girls, they show you are sensitive to the environment and may be the same to their needs.

Honorable mention goes to the Yugo. It’s hard to find these around anymore, but I’m sure there are some guys who think it’s cool to own one. These are the same guys who take girls to Star Wars movies on first dates. This ride was never cool and worse, it was a piece of junk. During the “hey day” of the Yugo there was a fifty percent chance your date would end on the side of the road due to a breakdown. No one ever said, “That Yugo was the best purchase ever.”

We’ve got small cars, big cars and just plain ugly cars. Some are cheap and some are expensive. What they all have in common is that no matter what you look like the odds of getting laid decrease if you pull up in one of these rides. Here you are girls, the ten cars you don’t want your boyfriend driving.

Where Will Bill Simmons Land? Mailbag Time!

Welcome to the Wednesday OWR Mailbag! Have a question about betting, sports, pop culture or tacos? This week we cover the Clippers, white wine and the “rape sandwich” otherwise known as a hoagie. Email us at mailbag@onlinewagerreview.com.

Last week I was in Vegas…hold on. I was there with my 2 year old son. Still, I was hoping to get some time at the Flamingo (where I stayed) Sports Book and write a post about it. Instead I found that the Flamingo Sports Book is nothing much. It’s essentially my living room. Of course they are quick with the free drinks, so maybe it is better! Anyway, I was able to get out for 1 hour and I didn’t run to the sports book; instead, headed for roulette, the devil’s game. On to the questions…

Did we just witness the window closing on the Clippers?

You have to think Chris Paul’s years are numbered. Clearly the Clippers need a third guy to team up with Paul and Blake Griffin. Can they convince Jimmy Butler to leave more money and the city of Chicago behind? I doubt it and believe they will target Monta Ellis which will have a 50 percent chance of providing the extra juice needed and a 50 percent of ending their reign.

I need some help, is it a submarine (or sub), grinder or hero?

I think this is mostly regional, but I have used all three. To me, a grinder or hero is usually hot and contains either meatballs or chicken cutlets. A sub is cold cuts with lots of mayo and pickles. You could even through in “hoagies”, but I won’t. I associate hoagies with The Cosby Show (he would always try to eat giant hoagies). Now if someone offers me a sandwich with this name I automatically assume they are attempting to drug and rape me.

I’m taking out a girl that seems to like sports, what is the perfect date sporting event?

Probably not hockey, but also no nose bleed seats. Is this the best you can do? Sporting event dates are not a great idea for first dates. Unless of course she drinks. Does she drink? If yes, you should be fine. We should all be so lucky to find a nice girl who drinks.

Will We Ever See Another “Big Fight” In Our Lifetime? OWR Wednesday Mailbag!

box

Welcome to the Wednesday OWR Mailbag! Have a question about betting, sports, pop culture or tacos? This week we cover annoying commercials, the next big fight and the proper way to bite into a taco. Email us at mailbag@onlinewagerreview.com.

Is the couple paying their dog sitter on their phone while standing in line at the airport with their bratty kids the worst commercial?

No, there is an arthritis commercial for a drug (forget which one) where there is a man and women describing their challenges they face with arthritis. The woman is unable to climb stairs. The man? He is complaining about the pain opening pickle jars. Maybe that’s a sign to stop eating pickles. It’s hard to be sympathetic when the woman has much bigger problems. What a dick!

Was last Saturday, “The Biggest Sports Day Ever” a bust?

If your day consisted of The Kentucky Derby (boring) and the fight, then yes. However, that also means you missed out on a classic game 7 between the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs. It had everything! That game is why the NBA is faaaantastic! Also, that game saved the day…

I was let down by the big fight, will we (in our lifetime) ever see a fight hyped as much as Mayweather and Pacquiao?

Given boxing is on its last leg with many already, I think the only way is if the match transcends just a regular match. It needs to be USA vs. (country that hates us). Yes, like Ivan Drago – did he really have to kill Apollo Creed? What a dick!
