In HRU today:
racing a better gamble has a lot to do with the price, but it’s more than that.
Look at last week’s carryover in the pick 5 at the Big M. Over $100,000
additional dollars were bet into the sequence. It was not because of a free
food offer, or a promotion was going on, or the Jets cheerleaders were
trackside, it was because with the carryover, the pick 5 was a better gamble.
It made the racing roulette wheel not have twelve zeroes, but potentially four
or five of them."

Mike Dorr looked at similar, in a kind of fun way yesterday on his blog. What's a more likely press release?
Where's DeRosa? There are plenty asking. I just started following Ed a few weeks ago and he leaves twitter. Coincidence? I think not. Sid looks at the story.
7 Days of @itstheJHO Fashion Pictures on PTP's Blog ® continues today, for the very last day. For all other JHO pics, just scroll below.
Here's Justin relaxing at home with a Tommy Hilfiger shirt and Nautica Blue Jeans. The dog is not owned by Justin, but a prop, just to make him look extra cool and cuddly for the ladies.
He is still sporting the Tag Heurer watch and (not in the picture) he is wearing a pair of hand made slippers that he purchased on his last trip to Rome at "a lovely little shop on the south side, that only a few special people..... like me .... know of"
"The guy is already taken, but that picture looks like a perfect online dating profile pic" said his friend Dustin (in yesterday's day six photo). "Justin can make everything look good though, which is a big reason he was hired as leader of the Meadowlands, Tioga and Vernon marketing."
With Justin looking this good, some are thinking that it's only a matter of time before he becomes Jason Settlemoir's boss. They might be right.
Have a great weekend everyone!
