GO NEW YORK, GO NEW YORK, GO: Well -despite all of our highly paid sports teams- we may not have any postseason action in the professional leagues, but we did win the Kentucky Derby. Yes, that's right, a New York bred horse beat the good ole' boys' best at that old school Mecca of white trash sporting events. It's nice to know that despite all of its acclaimed multiculturalism, New York can still play the breeding game with the best of 'em. Sigh, the poor beastie was a gelding, or, as my equine-challenged friend says, "What, you mean a Hebe?" (He's Jewish too, so no bad blood here.) Although, if you think about it, that sorta does make the horse Jewish, in an extreme sort of way.
