Hooked on Clash of the Gods

I've been watching this show on the History Channel, Clash of the Gods, and it's awesome.
Hercules pisses off Hera by being Hercules.  She sends madness to him.  He kills his children.  He does the twelve labors.  Then, he commits suicide becuase the twelve labors didn't help him rid himself of his guilt.
King Minos decides to keep his prized bull to himself.  Posiedon gets pissed and gets Minos' wife to fall in love with the bull.  The bull bears the Minotaur.  Athens and Crete go back and forth and the Cretian's kill Athenian virgins by sticking them in the labyrinth with the Minotaur until Theseus comes by and kills the Minotaur.  But, as luck would have it, Theseus doesn't raise the white sail, like his dad told him to do, on his way back to Athens and so his dad,  King Aegis, throws himself into the water and dies.
What's in store today?  How about an episode on the Lord of the Rings.  I'm wondering what the profs are going to say about that.

Breeders' Cup This Weekend!

The best two days in horse racing this year occur on Friday and Saturday. I've already got numerous articles posted in the BetUS Locker Room on almost every single one of the 2009 Breeders' Cup races. Check those out starting with my Classic picks.

Classic Picks

Also, here are some thoughts:

Rose Catherine in the Juvenile Fillies Turf is the best overlay bet on Friday.

Court Vision in the Mile is the best overlay bet on Saturday.

Summer Bird should win the Classic.

Zenyatta won't finish in the Top 5 in the Classic.

It's worth betting the Pick 6 if you can keep it under control, less than $150 total.
