When the guys are out to play that leaves yours truely (RJ Hawk) to tend to Roger's weekly blog. Now I know nobody can fill Roger's boots, but I am simply here to be an alternate. As Terry Wallace would say "And their off," so here we go....
Today on the show, it was an action packed show full of Oaklawn personalities, local business men, and legendary actresses. We started the morning off, like we do every time we're at Oaklawn with David Longinotti and Terry Wallace. The guys broke down everything you could possibly do, eat, and see while your at Oaklawn this weekend. Make sure if you head to the track that you download the new Oaklawn app for your blackberry or Iphone. This way you can be lazy and put your bets in from you seats.
The NFL playoffs are in full swing, and this weekend has some great match-ups for the divisional round. We gave a our weekly picks, and if you interested, Roger is still leading the pack with a 69-51 overall record. Check back on Monday and see if he maintained his 2 game lead on Tommy and Baz.
Former Razorback great Darrell Walker called in to plug his new show that will be on The Buzz this Sunday night from 7p-8p. If you want to hear great guests and some insiteful opinions about everything sports, be sure to TUNE IN!
Now over the past few years the SWNN has brought you the Sheik of Bismark to give his daily picks on the races at Oaklawn. This year is no different, and you can find all of his picks right here on the SWNN page. Today though, we had a double dose of picks as Shiek's rival Jeff "Money" Taylor stopped by give his thoughts on today's card. Jeff is always good at picking a longshot to win you lots of money!
The final hour of the show today featured some big name actresses as Valerie Harper called-in as well as Bo Derek. Now me being a guy of the younger generation, I had no clue who either of these ladies were, but thanks to google I was informed very quickly. I don't mind saying, Bo Derek is quite the hottie.
And finally to close out the show today, Terry Wallace gave us another SWNN race call which was priceless.
Roger will be back on Monday to critique this blog and I promise you there will be lots to critique, but as always THANKS for listening, and have a great weekend! Make sure you make it out to Oaklawn on this 3 day race weekend. I'm hoping the new track announcer Frank Mirahmadi can mix in a SLAMMARAMAROO as some point. Hey a guy can wish right?
