Del Mar Online Racing Community
Chat about horses, racing, and the industry.
Wakwak, methinks you got the chat wrong. Here's why...
Think of the chat as a corner bar, near a race track. Full of regulars, shootin' the shat....many subjects come up because we're a group of folks with many interests. We talk of our jobs, lives, families, vacations, and even racing - which is the common thread that joins us.
We have often gotten together in person...broken bread, gotten drunk....and helped one another in times of need.
Do we get a out of control, or nasty at times? Absolutely. Are we out of line? Occassionally. Do we argue over stupid things? Of course, just like friends tend to do. Do we joke around, kid, cajole, tease each other, tell jokes, get raunchy......YES....A LOT...and it's funny as hell. A thick skin helps.
Do we include "outsiders"? YES....I was once one. But over time, you feel your way in, just like at a local pub. If it's a fit, then you're one of us, and all is grand. If not, then it wasn't meant to be.
Let me be clear: don't come into the chat, guns ablazin', trying to get established through force or intimidation, being disrespectful, etc. bragging/boasting about hitting tri's or pick sixes. (Proof's in the pudding.) Or you will get the cold shoulder and you will get treated the way one who acts that way deserves. We don't want anyone in there who's like that any way. Who would?
DOC is the king of the chat. It's a lifetime position. The others -myself included- have our spots in the lineup, and there is ALWAYS room for more.........AS LONG AS YOU'RE COOL.
Come on in, any time.

Great post, Peg....I, for one, know what great peeps we have on this sight....many were there for me yesterday....a day I won't soon forget. But there ARE a few spoilers, as there are anywhere.....even that corner bar gets a few....
I love the folks in chat. I drop in and everyone is nice and we share our wins and losses. Some people look for trouble where none exists. Feeling contempt when someone doesn't agree with you tells me that they have a whole lot of something going on other than words on a chat or a fan forum.
I wouldn't humor anyone by listening to a broadcast that says anything this ludicrous. No one in chat is going to harm anybody.
It's a little town in Itlee. In 2007, I was there for a week and figuratively drank their olive oil with everything I ate. It was like Virgin too.
Btw, I listened to the archive of Roger's show about 7 times last night and never came across him mentioning Del Mar. I was listening to the Saturday, March 20th archived show - is that the right one? If so, where in God's Holy Name does he mention DM?
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
