PTP: One of the Kentucky Derby's Two Tribes is Taken For Granted

http://pullthepocket.blogspot.com/20...tribes-is.html

Excerpt:

A friend who is a professional gambler was playing poker and betting a few races downstairs at Woodbine. The concierge, who knows he is a Horseplayer, told him he'd comp him to the Kentucky Derby party upstairs.

My buddy said "sure." And he called me from the party.

"Hey, I'm at the Derby party at Woodbine"

"Cool, do you see anyone [horseplayers, regulars] we know?"

"No, everyone is dressed up here. It's really weird."

"Are you dressed up at all?"

"Jeans and a Tee-shirt. People are looking at me funny."


The man who bets more than the entire room, is in the room. His tribe is in the grandstand, or at home playing online.

Such is life. Tax payers and foot soldiers never reap the rewards.
