The odds for the Kentucky Derby have been changed a bit because the favorite, Eskendereya, is now out of the running for the 2010 Kentucky Derby. When the opening odds were released, Eskendereya was a 6/1 favorite to win the Derby.

Since Eskendereya is out of this years’ race, Lookin at Lucky (9-1) took over as the favorite. Lookin at Lucky has been the winner of five out of his eight races. He finished third at the Santa Anita Derby, which was his last race.

However the odds have changed once again, and now Super Saver is the favorite at 7-1 odds. This year Super Saver has raced in two races, but just missed first place in both of them. In the Arkansas Derby he finished second, and in the Tampa Bay Derby he finished in third place.

Super Saver’s trainer is Todd Pletcher who, although has never won the Derby,  is arguably one of the best trainers in the United States. His jockey is Calvin Borel, who may know Churchill better than any other. He has been the winner for two out of the last three Kentucky Derbies.

Other contenders in the 2010 Kentucky Derby include Ice Box, Stately Victor, Dean’s Kitten, Devil May Care, Mission Impazible, Awesome Act, Homeboy Kris, and others.

The 2010 Kentucky Derby will be held on Saturday May 1, 2010 at the Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.

Citi field, home of the Mets, has expressed their interest in being the host of the 2011 NHL Winter Classic. The NHL seems to be inching closer to the idea of the the 42,000-seat field being the hosts of the fourth annual Winter Classic.

On Friday Gary Bettman, the commissioner of the NHL made a comment, which said that the owners of the Mets and the stadium have been “extremely interested and aggressive” in their pursuit.

The chief operating officer of the National Hockey League recently took a tour of Citi Field and left with a great impression, and rave reviews. John Collins added how great the ball park was while admitting that it had charm.

A large number of baseball stadiums have expressed interest in hosting the Classic including Detroit and Colorado. Bettman said the list of the teams and cities who are interested is a long one, but some options seem to be more appealing for the NHL.

Although the venue for the 2011 NHL Winter Classic has not been declared, one thing known for sure is that no matter where it takes place, it will be held outdoors. The NHL has a goal to bring the game of hockey back to its roots in the outdoors.

Tickets are not available yet for next years Winter Classic, but you can sign up for NHL Winter Classic Tickets Alert to be notified by Select A Ticket when they become available!

The New York Giants played their 273rd and final game in their old stadium against the Carolina Panthers. They were put to shame during the closing of the old Giants Stadium by losing 41-9.

The rematch is quickly approaching as the Giants will play the Panthers on September 12, 2010. Funnily enough the Panthers were the last opponent in the old stadium, and now will be the first opponent for the Giants in their new $1.7 billion stadium.

The Giants will play a total of four home games during the first six weeks of the season. You can also expect them to play four times in prime time during, which will include an intense game where Eli Manning of the Giants will play his brother’s Indianapolis Colts.

Tom Coughlin, the coach of the Giants, said that their schedule may be a little “challenging.” The Giants will play numerous games against teams that made it to the 2009 playoffs, and five of those games will not be on their own turf. New York will finish their season on the road at Minnesota, Greenbay, and then Washington all in a four-week time frame.

The New York Giants will play the inaugural game at the new Giants stadium on August 16, 2010 against the New York Jets, but their season begins against the panthers on September 12, 2010.

The Philadelphia Eagles needed someone to fill a linebacker position, and they fixed that by acquiring Ernie Sims from Detroit while giving up a fifth-round draft choice. The deal was made in a three-way NFL trade which involved the Denver Broncos as well as the Detroit Lions.

Ernie Sims is currently in the concluding year of his rookie contract, and according to sources the Eagles are looking to make him a long-term commitment for the team. Sims has only been with the NFL for four seasons, and he has played all four seasons as a Lion.

The 6′ 225-pound linebacker started every game for his first three seasons while averaging 124 tackles a season. He has played 59 career games, and in those 59 games he has one interception, 2 1/2 sacks, and 420 tackles.

It seems as though the Eagles have been able to fill all of their essential needs for their team, yet have 10 selections in the 2010 draft.

The Philadelphia Eagles will host their first preseason game on Friday, August 13, 2010 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Eagles’ regular season starts on Sunday, September 12, 2010 against Green Bay at the Lincoln Financial Field.

Jason Taylor signed a two-year contract with the New York Jets on Monday despite being despised by the fans for many years because of comments he made regarding his dislike for the Jets.

Taylor did not want to leave the Dolphins, but according to sources the Dolphins did not acknowledge his phone calls while he was in pursuit of a new contract. They told him that he would have to wait until after the draft for them to even consider renewing his contract. Two weeks ago Taylor visited the Jets, but only left with the decision to either wait until after the draft to see if Miami would re-sign him, or to sign with New York.

The 2006 NFL Defensive Player of the Year is another signing risk that coach Rex Ryan has made to add to the multiple other ones. Fans will have to wait and see if this odd off-season activity will be rewarding to them or not.

Ryan seems to think it will be beneficial to their goal of reaching the playoffs.  “We expect Jason to play a bunch and be a major contributor to our defense, clearly, we have an outstanding group already, but you can expect Jason to be out there a bunch.”

The New York Jets will host the opening game at the new Meadowlands stadium on August 16, 2010 against fellow tenants, the New York Giants. The regular season for the Jets begins on Monday, September 13, 2010 against the Baltimore Ravens.

A couple of long shot Kentucky Derby contenders are now on their way to the Derby after what happened on Saturday during two of the Derby’s most important prep races. After the Blue Grass Stakes and the Arkansas Derby, Stately Victor and Line of David, surprised everyone and are now headed to the Derby. This is a huge upset for the Derby because one of the horses had never won a graded stakes race, and the other was never even a part of one.

At the Blue Grass Stakes on Saturday with 40-1 odds, Stately Victor was the longest shot of all the horses on the board. Last year he earned sixth place in his only stakes race, but this year he was able to win the stakes race by 4 1/4 lengths.

At the Arkansas Derby, Line of Davis was another long shot, and his odds of winning were 17-1. He made his stakes debut on Saturday at Oaklawn, and pulled off a major and unexpected win.

The next question on everyone’s mind is, do they have a chance in the Run for the Roses? The 2010 Kentucky Derby will be held on Saturday May 1, 2010, and you can see in person if these two longshots can run their way to the front.
