Friday Hound Blogging

On Wednesday we told you about a group of overlord intelligentsia who were suing the state of Iowa so they could get their racing license back and proceed to lose their shirts. Again. You probably thought, "Boy, what a bunch of losers. Nobody is that stupid."

Yes, they are. They are that stupid. Plainfield Greyhound Park reopened Monday, offering simulcast wagering, and has received state approval to run greyhound racing again in 2006. But there are no guarantees that dogs will run at the track. Connecticut Yankee Greyhound Racing, which operates the facility, agreed in 2004 to sell the facility to Trumbull developer Gene Arganese, who has said he plans to use the site to build a 140,000-seat, domed auto racing track.

"Well, we knew the car race track would be bigger around, and made out of cement and stuff, but we figure hey, dogs like to chase cars, right?" Karen Keelan, executive vice president of Connecticut Yankee Greyhound Racing, said. "Got to be a buck or two in there somewhere."

Arganese said he continues to move forward with his plans for the auto racing facility. "I at least got through to these folks that the cars don't need to chase a mechanical rabbit, but they still keep asking how many social security recipients like auto racing."

Well, if Ms. Keelan loses her job in Plainfield, we hear they're looking for some executive talent in Iowa. Seems like she's got what it takes, right Salt?

Salt aka Spice is intelligent and very affectionate. She wants to be near you and have her touch her all the time. She is very friendly and outgoing. She loves walking. She tends to be a quiet girl.
