Default Belmont Stakes

Who's in?
Personally, I'm in tense negotiations with the Mrs. MaTH as we speak. I'm going to try to use whatever chips I have left to make it out to Elmont and hopefully see history.

You've got three weeks to wear her down and win this mismatch by attrition.

We all like underdogs, I'm rooting for you.

Yeah, I burned up most of my chips for Tampa. We'll see, I have a good feeling.

Going to look at rooms and flights later today. I'm 50/50, flights will be plentifull and inexpensive, it's the summer NYC hotel rates that are painful.

That's the worst buffet menu I've ever seen, at least they have dessert.
