Will it be Smarty Jones's day?

The big event of the day comes late this afternoon when Smarty Jones goes for the Triple Crown - he's a good bet to win, but it's a rare one that can pull off the Triple Crown - tune in! (For an opinion on the race, read this article .) The race takes off at 6:38 ET, but TV coverage begins at 5:30 p.m.

Music Players
This looks like a pretty neat 20 Gig music player. Certainly different than most. I like the line-in recording ability, which makes it nice to record those old albums. Check out the specs and a review . Certainly not cheap, but cool!
