The Gold Cup Conclusion from the original blog with history
by meoldmate on 01 Mar at 21:34
THE GOLD CUP I have written a blog on the runners for this race with history to go with each runner as they appeared which many people have read and placed a mention at the bottom of the page. You can find this blog by typing http://www.olbg.com/blogs/post.php?id=407857 As the link will not work. At least twenty five horses came to be mentioned for this Blue Ribbon race and now the numbers would have dwindled somewhat to possibly twelve or maybe more. I started out thinking SILVINIACO CONTI would be the key player to this race and at 8/1 in October looked to be the best way to play. He has strengthen up since last season, as his trainer Paul Nicholls has highlighted and has been finishing his races off, as he has shown when winning at Haydock and Kempton. The twice he..
Cartagena de Indias at Karibana Championship Preview
by jimmywomble on 05 Mar at 11:05
Marino Continues Return to Form in Colombia The Web.com Tour returns to Colombia again this week for a new event the Cartagena de Indias at Karibana Championship presented by Prebuild, to give it it’s full moniker. It will be from the Karibana Beach Golf Condimunium or TPC Cartagena as the PGA Tour website calls it. Colombia is 5 hours behind the UK so it will get underway at 11.40am UK time on Thursday 5th March, shortly in other words. The Course Another resort style course this week as Karibana sits on the coast 5 miles or so north of the city of Cartagena. It’s an open links style course, but with plenty of water around as most holes seem to play around the lakes & creeks of the bay. Wind will play a big part as will the..
MLS 2015 Season Preview

MLS 2015 Season Preview Major League Soccer The 2015 MLS season kicks off at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles, the home of defending MLS Cup champions LA Galaxy on March the 7th when they face Chicago Fire. I’m looking forward to it and I’ve watched a fair bit of ‘Soccer’ in recent years so I thought I would do a season preview. I will give a bit of a background to football in America and then provide a short profile of all 20 teams with a season prediction. This is the 20th anniversary of MLS. Football in the USA has a longer history than most people give it credit for. This year actually marks the 37th year of a national league and surprisingly the 103rd year of football governed by FIFA in America. Firstly, 2015 sees 2 new franchises in Orlando City..
SUPER LEAGUE 2015 - ROUND FOUR
by wildbillsghost on 05 Mar at 16:40
Thursday, already? You sure? Where does the time time go?? That means Round Four of Super League 2015 is about to get underway - here goes... Thursday 5th March 2015 - 8.00pm KO HULL FC Vs LEEDS RHINOS The Airlie Birds saw their, fairly bright, start to the new campaign grounded as they lost at, the previously hapless, Salford Red Devils last Saturday night. After a convincing shutout of the Giants to open the season, and then a fiercely fought 7-6 narrow defeat to Warrington Wolves, hopes were high the good start would continue when they visited a Salford club with plenty of problems both on and off the pitch. The opening two games had been marked by a very tight Hull defence that had conceded just one try in the first two games in total,..
WGC Cadillac Championship
by beepee1984 on 04 Mar at 05:38
The Course suited long-hitters and since making it bigger it will benefit the big hitters even more. Recent winners of the WGC Cadillac have shown form in several previous tournaments including the PGA Championship, Humana, Quicken National Links and Wyndham. Before the redesign of the course T Woods won here 7 times, the only tournaments that he has won more is the WTC Bridgestone and Arnold Palmer Invitation. The majority of winners have also already had a top 10 finish. My selection isn't bad of the tee only 14 yards of the Top Driver, has won at the PGA and WGC Bridgestone as well as coming a 2nd in last years Arnold Palmer Invitation. He finished 4th in his penultimate event as well as 2 3rd places earlier in the season in December. Keegan Bradley 50/1..
Unreasonable reasoning - Non-scientific, irrational betting angles
by botev1921 on 01 Mar at 18:33
Over the years I have come across many logical and not so logical reasons to back a certain outcome of a sports event and to be honest, I never take anything lightly as you never know where one could find wisdom. However, I grew up a bit disgusted with certain so-called pundits or specialist in particular sports, who often get extensive coverage due to either experience or simply popularity, but ever so often the things they offer as reasoning for particular bets, are nothing short of moronic. There are countless angles to sports selections, but in my eyes (and I do not want to offend anybody who thinks those make sense) some angles are just one step too far and are simply worthless and even misleading than anything else. Since I have not posted any philosophical blog entries in a..
Cadillac Championship ( World Golf Championship ) 2015 Preview
by The rabbit on 01 Mar at 14:04
Adam Scott will be competing in another World Golf Championship this week and it is the Cadillac Championship which is held at the TPC Blue Monster course at the Doral Golf Resort & Spa Club in Florida from the 5th March - 8th March 2015. The course was redesigned after the 2013 event finished and played much harder last year with the winning score being only - 4. There is no cut and it is a limited field event for most of the world's best players. This tournament is part of the FedExCup schedule and the winner will obtain 550 points. The TPC Blue Monster course has hosted this tournament since 2007 and the past eight champions of this tournament with their final scores are - 2014 - Patrick Reed - 4 2013 - Tiger Woods - 19 2012 - Justin Rose - 16 2011..
