Thanks, though given my recent track record (no pun intended) I would be just as likely to pull a hamstring.  Then I'd have to talk Wilbur Post into helping me avoid the glue factory.

I think I figured this right - if it rolls over before 12:37.30 pm tomorrow I win, and after that, Blackie wins.  So it's a race to the finish.

But then again, who's counting?

@ 900 hrs on 7/18 =2,500,186

 and the winner by a nose is Epistrophy,

congrats mr. ed no glue factory for you.

    Congrats Epistrophy, nice job

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

        Thanks!

        That was fun, and thanks to Haymaker for posting the informal contest.

        All this time I should have been trying to guess the lotto results for a month away.

          I just double-checked the thread and my apologies to rcbbuckeye, who had guessed 7/22/12 but I missed it the first time and didn't include it in my tally.

          When will it roll over to 3M posts?

          I predict that it will happen on 7/10/13 at 8:13pm

          Oh, and 39 seconds, almost forgot.

            ahh... yes those 39 seconds make all the difference... then i opt for 21 seconds (same date)  **snicker**

              Sounds good.  At 29 seconds or less you'd win, 31 seconds plus goes to me, and we would tie if it's exactly 30 seconds.  That would be cool.

                      If we're going to make it like horse racing maybe it should be 39 and some 5ths

                      39 and 2/5 etc.

                      watching del mar on TVG I guess you're there, less than 1 hour to 1st post good luck.

                      Also just noticed that Eddessaknight is capping del mar in the gaming forum,

                      check out his thread, good handicapper.

                        Unfortunately, work kept me away from opening day at Del Mar this year.  I had gone to opening day for several years in a row and it is great.  But I usually wind up going at least two or three times each season so I'll just go later and it won't be as crowded.

                        Thanks for the tip on Eddessaknight - I'll check it out.

                        And thanks again for thinking of this contest and posting it - that was pretty cool to see the guesses and actuals converge.

                        Best of luck to you as well.

                              You weren't too far off given that we all predicted about a month ago.

                              But, yeah, it's going to be another ball of wax trying to guess AND also remember a year from now.
