Saturday Softball at Ulmer...Our staff with some picks


-Softball Cards look to stay in first in BIG EAST

-Some picks with a week to go before Derby

Georgetown visits Ulmer Stadium today with a big assignment. Beating the Louisville Cardinal softball team. It's only been done twice this year. DePaul accomplished that task at the end of March and on April Fools we really can't count the second defeat, right?

44-2. We hope it goes to 46-2 by 6 p.m. this evening. 


The 138th running of the Kentucky Derby is next Saturday. Here are "the top four" according to some of our writers and friends. As you'll see, there is no clear cut favorite among this group. Should stack up to be one heck of a exciting horse race! 

Paul                                                  David Watson

Dullahan                                           Optimizer
Bodemeister                                      Gemologist
I'll Have Another                             I'll Have Another
Gemologist                                        Done Talking

Sonja                                                Commish Mark

Hansen                                              Mark Valeski
Take Charge Indy                           Sabercat
Bodemeister                                     Daddy Long Legs
Dullahan                                          Creative Cause

Arch                                                  Nate

Union Rags                                       I'll Have Another
Gemologist                                        Creative Cause
Bodemeister                                      Trinniberg
Daddy Nose Best                              Alpha

Here are some picks by people who do this stuff for a living:

Mike Wachmaker: Dullahan, Creative Cause, Hansen, Union Rags 

Dave Liftin: Creative Cause, Union Rags, Daddy Nose Best, Bodemeiser

Steve Klein: Bodemeister, Gemologist, Union Rags, Creative Cause

Mary Rampellini: Union Rags, Hansen, Gemologist, Bodemeister

Even the folks who are good at this stuff and write about it can't agree. 

One week to go. Tonight, Churchill opens and the Derby Trial will be run for the first time ever at night. If you haven't been before, night racing is an exciting event and the crowd will be huge. 

This race doesn't produce much in the way of Derby Candidates anymore...most trainers and owners don't like running their Derby prospects a week before the Run for the Roses...but it will be an exciting one. Keep your eyes on Paynter, Bourbon Courage and The Black in tonight's feature race.

Her remarks were in reaction to Paul's disappointment of some unexpected news that CARDINAL COUPLE got on Friday. She doesn't like to see "the big guy" hurt and disappointed. 

Have a great weekend and get out and enjoy the events of the day, whatever they run into. If you participated in the mini-marathon today, congratulations! You are a winner, no matter how, when and where you finished!
