Sunday Tribbin: As far as predictions go, this was a classic from our very own Art Wilson

Anything and anyone you want to talk about. I’m accepting athlete of the week nominations

Art Wilson knows his horse racing, he really does, but this was a classic prediction that we will tease him about for a long time. Here is how he started his column on the Kentucky Derby.
Here’s the first thing I did while handicapping today’s Kentucky Derby – I took out a black pen and drew lines through five horses. They have zero chance. Zilch. Nada. My 14-year-old Labrador/Shepherd would have more of a shot, and he doesn’t get around very well anymore. The Five? Mine That Bird, Join in the Dance, Atomic Rain, Nowhere to Hide and Flying Private. If you’re planning to bet win money on any of those 3-year-olds, do us all a favor and just make out a check to the charity of your choice right now.Save yourself the anguish of rooting for a horse that might be lucky to finish before NBC signs off. Of Course, Mine that Bird, the 50-1 shot, won it. What’s worse, his prediction or mine that Hatton would win?.
