I also hope this is real

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

This is like a 65 year old version of a down-on-his-luck Uncle Rico, drunk, and recently cut off from unemployment checks. I hope it's real.

Which reminds me of this classic.

That's how I roll.

Great Sports This Weekend

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

1. As the English announcer says, Saturday features a soccer match betwixt, "Argenteener and Jaminee." or Argentina and Germany. That will be a doozy. For Germany. The result will forever send the debate between which God likes more: Sausage or Chimichurri. Today's Brazil/Netherlands game taught me that God prefers marijuana and tulips over thongs and tan accelerator.

2. Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin. You aren't going to drop $60 for it on Pay per view? What's that? You're going to go to Twitter and search, "watch ufc116" and going to find an illegal, free feed on the web? No way, me too. I'm picking Carwin to upset Lesnar due to ring rust. He is a long shot, so a safer bet would be to bet that I learned the phrase "ring rust" about two weeks ago. It's true.

3. I Want Revenge makes his long-awaited debut start since his injury that had him scratch on Derby Day in 2009 as the morning-line favorite (only because Quality Road wasn't entered). He is the 7-5 favorite in Belmont Park's Suburban Handicap (Gr.II) on Saturday where he takes on a 2-1 Regal Ransom, among others.

Here he is kicking hiney in the aforementioned Wood Memorial.

That's how I roll.

Looking for a way to Humiliate Your Horse? Have it Race Goldikova

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

Goldikova, the European version of Zenyatta or Rachel Alexandra kicked more male horse hiney today in England in the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes.

With her being a miler and Zenyatta and Rachel preferring more of a Classic Distance, I wish they could compromise and race in a 1 1/16th or 1 1/8th race, kinda like how Donovan Bailey and Michael Johnson raced in that 150 meter race.

I digressed, though. The point is Goldikova is awesome.

That's how I roll.

Quality Road Hiney Kicking Chronicles: 2010 Met Mile Edition

(Quality Road photographed above, Vladimir Putin up. Seriously, that's Quality Road. Ok, fine it's not)

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

Quality Road did it again, winning the 2010 Metropolitan Mile at Belmont on Monday.

Now, I'm not a licensed equine Psychologist (though I still practice), but it has been said before that when all you have is a hammer, eventually everything looks like a nail. Now put yourself in Quality Road's horse shoes for a minute: All Quality Road has are 4 hooves, and eventually every other racehorse looks like a hiney and he just kicks them. Every single one, every single time in Chuck Norris-like fashion.
That's my theory anyway. How else could you explain that a horse runs fast?

At the 16th pole Quality Road said, "Oh hi, Musket Man. Say, that musket sure is shiny. Now excusve me while I kick your hiney."
All kidding aside, Musket Man ran very well. He's turned into a really nice horse and one of the best horses ever to come out of the Illinois Derby.

That's how I roll.

Ancient Chinese Riddle, in Association with TR Salutes, Presents: Cub fan Beer Catch

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

One day a few thousand years into the future, someone will assume this was ancient chinese riddle:

Is the guy in the movie a Gentleman or a Dude? I mean sure he's a dude. No question whatsoever. He's highly rated on the dude scale. But I mean, isn't that the most chivalrous, and thereby gentlemanly thing you can do? Like what Jack Donaghy or The Most Interesting Man in the World or James Bond would do in that position?


That's how I roll.

Article Link Corprolalia: Matt Taibi, Lionel Messi, a Shakespear Imposter, Banksy, M.I.A., and a Rap Song about Harold's Chicken Shack

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

This should be two posts but I'm making it one just so I can be the only blogger of all time to put these together.

First two great articles I read today. And one yesterday. And it took me damn near all day.

1. Matt Taibbi's very important read about our impotent congress grabbing its ankles for wall street and their lobbyists.

2. Sports Illustrated's awesome article about the LeBron James of soccer- Lionel Messi and his relationship with his coach, and is the Babe Ruth of Argentinan soccer, Diego Maradona (pictured above as Lego). If you more or less know most of the story, this article is well-researched (and yes, long) enough to still teach you a lot of new stuff and if you are excited about the World Cup but aren't too familiar with who is good or any storylines, this might be a good place to bone up on your knowledge to make the World Cup more interesting.

3. Not to drink too much of the haterade, but the NYT Magazine coverstory on M.I.A. is good. She had it comin.

4. these two banksy articles. This one on Slate and this one on Salon.

5. This truth-is-stranger-than-fiction story about a teenager who forged a Shakespeare play in England in 1795 and it was made into a play and totally busted because it sucked. It's a sweet article. It's at

Now the video goods: The Chi doin big thangs in their homage to Chicken Noodle Soup, shown below.

you're welcome.

Dear TR,

They're eating chicken wings on the dance-floor, how playa is that mang?

-Delonte West.

I love that she's wearing Stan Smith's in the very beginning!

That's how I roll.

It Looks Like You Just Got Yourself a new Favorite Racehorse

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

Sorry this is in French, but there isn't a whole lot I could do about it.

Above is Goldikova, the Euro equivalent of Rachel Alexandra or Zenyatta, only better*. Her 2010 season got off to a perfect start with a 1/2 victory in the Grade 1- Prix D'ispahan at Longchamp (further reading can be had here). Along with Zenyatta, it's great to see a champion horse racing well into horsey adulthood at age 5. Any European horse that is 2 for 2 in Breeders Cup races, and is still racing automatically cracks my top 5 favorite European horses of all time. Great story any way you slice it.

Oh, but she isn't the horse I was implying will be your new favorite. Our new favorite horse was actually the German horse that finished third in that race. His name is Wiener Walzer.

Here he is winning the 2009 German Galop Derby. Start listening at the 2:02 mark. Stop giggling probably never.

* denotes- it makes for a great horse racing debate, but what is not debatable is that she is a total monster.

That's how I roll.

Putting it Down for my People People in 513

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

I just found out that Freekbass did a song called "Reds Fan". I wish they had more songs on YouTube, but I will take what I can get for now.

In honor of the Reds being in first place in the NL Central (for now), I thought I'd post it.

And this saaaang belaaaaaannnngs to the Reds.

Big Love for my 420 Crew

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

You may not be onto this cat yet, but you will be. Some of the best smoking music in a long time. It reminds me a bit of Outkast's slow songs from Aquemini and Stanokia. But don't make my word for it. Download it here for free.

His name is Wiz Khalifa. Here are some youtube audio versions of songs from Kush and Orange Juice.

The below skit is good and gets awesome at the 3:00 mark.

I am Afriad of Eskendereya

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

One quotation that has always struck me as being expertly descriptive was one I saw on VH1, actually. It was either I love the 80's or a special about NWA but ?uestlove of the Roots was being asked about what he thought about NWA's in-your-face style and intimidating demeanor demonstrated especially by NWA member Ice Cube. His answer?

"I thought Ice Cube was going to come to my house and fuck me up."

I kept thinking about that quotation after watching Eskendereya's performance in Saturday's Kentucky Derby prep, The Wood Memorial at Aqueduct. Tom Durkin doing a great job as always with the call.

That wasn't Eskendereya's first time romping in a quality derby prep. It also wasn't the first time I have mentioned Eskendereya. Next stop for Eskendereya? The Kentucky Derby, where he will be the heavy favorite, and for good reason. He looks like a total monster that no horse will look forward to facing in the Derby.

I just hope Eskendereya doesn't come to my house and challenge me to a mile and quarter race and fuck me up.

update: I just read that Eskendereya got a Beyer speed figure of 109 for the Wood Memorial. He may have won the Derby and the Wood in the same day. Wow.

update update: I was wondering what Eskendereya's name meant. This SI article answered it:

"The name is the Arab translation for the Egyptian port city of Alexandria. Eskendereya also is defined as a flirty Alexandrian dance with a heavy veil, according to a bellydance glossary of Middle Eastern dance teminologies."

Now you know.

That's how I roll.

This is an Uber-Doozy

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

This is just your typical, two gay guys fighting at a welfare office then when one kicks the other's ass he starts voguing to celebrate being manlier than his vanquished former opponent.

By the way, this happened in Chicago. Don't even mess the gay boys in Chicago. That's why I never go to gay bars.

That's how I roll.

Awesome Video by OK Go

I'm not a huge fan of hipstery music, but this video is totally awesome. It's safe for work and you can listen to it on mute if you'd rather, but you should see this video.

Where Fat Kids Come From

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

It's great to see my man Jamie Oliver doing my second favorite form of fighting childhood obesity*. I think he's doing God's work and I hope his movement catches on. When an English dude comes to America to help out our obese children, you gotta respect that.

* denotes- This is my favorite kind.

That's how I roll.

Bigotry Remix

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

1. This is how you legislate- with belittling, bewilderment/lack of understand, and finally, with the first two coming to their natural combinatorial end: assumption.

2. It reminded me of the song beneath. That song along with Boom, Shake Shake the Room; Deeper Shade of Soul and Tic Tac Toe made up my favorite hiphop songs of 5th grade.

That's how I roll.

Eskendereya Kickin That Hiney

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

This is 2 year old Eskendereya in Saturday's Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream Park (this was the race last year where I became enamored with Quality Road). He kicked a lot of hiney and earned himself a 106 Beyer Speed Figure for his effort. The video quality is the opposite of hi-def, but you get the point.

That's how I roll.

Great Video

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

People forget how awesome this song and video were/are. It's timeless. Well, except for when Busta shouts out the Flipmode Squad. They sure as hell aren't timeless. I forgot how great Janet Jackson can be. Janet, I luh you baby booboo and Imma holla atchu when I get off lockdown.

Never Before Seen Ditka Interview From his Hey Day

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

I wish the title across the top of the YouTube window didn't ruin the surprise ending. The footage shows a lot of profanity off-air from an angry Coach, then he gets undie-tastic at about the 3:08 mark. 2010 just got a lot awesomer.

That's how I roll.
