A Horse’s Ass

I read where Steve Coburn, owner of California Chrome,  got all bent out of shape because the horse winning the Belmont Stakes, Tonalist, hadn’t run in the previous two Triple Crown races:

This is [California Chrome’s] third very big race. Those other horses they sit them out; they sit them out to try to upset the apple cart. I’m 61 years old and I’ll never see in my lifetime another Triple Crown winner because of the way they do this. It’s not fair to these horses that have been in the game since day one.


Meanwhile, the horse, California Chrome, isn’t concerned at all. The horse gets to eat what it likes, shard (BSP’s word for “defecate”); do whatever a race horse likes to do — graze — and will eventually go out to stud. Actually I don’t know if the horse is concerned. Maybe it is, but it probably not. In fact, I suspect California Chrome doesn’t give a damn, as long as it gets fed and can run every once in a while. Mostly because the horse can’t talk, tweet or do press conferences. California Chrome is a genius for his silence, although the horse’s commentary would probably be welcome in a sea of cliches, stupidity and nonsense.

Other professional athletes, coaches and owners should consider doing what California Chrome does. California Chrome could be a trendsetter. Shut up, stop making asses of yourselves, run, eat and put yourselves out to stud.

Then again, certain pro athletes are performing one of those functions already.


About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
