2007 Breeders' Cup Selections

Over the past few days, professional bloggers such as superfecta and Michael have intensely scrutinized each of the Breeders’ Cup races, handicapping with expertise and offering up their insights and selections. Rest assured, you will have none of that here. However, I would consider myself to be a derelict horseplayer if I did not provide my own Breeders’ Cup picks.

And as an added bonus this year, I am presenting the First Annual Magic Beer Bottle Breeder’s Cup Selections. These clearly defined selections are obtained by a highly controlled procedure: I peruse through our recycle bin and retrieve an empty beer bottle save for two pieces of lime and a cigarette butt. The bottle is then strategically placed sideways on a scrap piece of paper that I have hastily scribbled the post numbers 1 through 14 in a pie chart. Then “the spinner”, who in this case was my 6-year-old daughter, spins the bottle and whatever post number the bottle is pointing to, that is the selection. In cases of less than 14 entries, multiple spins are required until an active post number is achieved or “the spinner” gets bored and wanders off to watch SpongeBob SquarePants and Post 1 becomes the automatic default.

Have a great Breeders’ Cup Day tomorrow and good luck!
