    Wow.

    Rauner won.


  2. - Juice - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:05 pm:

    How can it be the last lap when you never even did the first?


  3. - Team Sleep - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:06 pm:

    Rich - you sure that 50 Cent didn’t take you out?!


  4. - The Colossus of Roads - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:10 pm:

    If it was really you it would have been Rich Miller Last Call.


  5. - Casual Observer - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:11 pm:

    Can you see your lap?


  6. - Norseman - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:12 pm:

    My first thought was they were insulting your girth. But you look marvelous.


  7. - OneMan - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:17 pm:

    Well your last lap was won by Dandy’s Beauty…


  8. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:18 pm:

    Mike Z: Rich… Lance… the boss says he’ll watch Rich ride the horse from the Skybox. He says for you to go on ahead and watch Rich down here.

    Rich: He can’t do that; that screws up the race and fun.

    Lance: Well, that’s what he said.

    Mike Z: I can’t ride in the race either, Rich.

    Rich: [to Mike Z] Tell Bruce it was only business. I always liked him.

    Mike Z: He understands that.

    Lance: [removing Rich’s hidden cannoli] Excuse me, Rich.

    Rich : Can you get me off the hook, Z? For old times’ sake?

    Mike Z: [shakes his head] Can’t do it, Rich.

    [Z watches sadly as Rich is led by Lance and the others to the starting gate and his horse for his last lap.]

    Photo caption from Rich’s visit to Chicago to find out why Ed Burke did not have the gentlemen’s club vote.


  10. - Upon Further Review - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:28 pm:

    Dan Walker, Verne Gagne, Susy Crogh, and now Rich Miller?!


  11. - former southerner - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:29 pm:

    “Rich Miller’s Last Lap”, the heartbreaking movie about the life of blogger Rich Miller who didn’t drink the Rauner brand Kool-Aid which contained the only antidote to the poisonous gas which was Working its way Right down To the end of Illinois.


  12. - a drop in - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:29 pm:

    Line starts with bachelor party. Maybe they left off the word “dance”?


  13. - BehindTheScenes - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:30 pm:

    At least they spelled your name right.


  14. - Anonin' - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:30 pm:

    Wow
    First someone shows up on Facebook with a new born
    Now this
    Yikes!


  15. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:35 pm:

    ===First someone shows up on Facebook with a new born===

    LOL

    Not mine, not mine, not mine.

    Heh.


  16. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:44 pm:

    “Nothing hurts as much as you think it will. You go numb… then you wrap your belt around your wrist and get to the nearest hospital.”


  17. - Ducky LaMoore - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:48 pm:

    They left out the last word… which was obviously, “dance.” It is a bachelor party after all.


  18. - Streator Curmudgeon - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:50 pm:

    I guess it’s an honor to have a horse named after you, but if said horse looks like he’s on his last lap, well…


  19. - Judgment Day - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:51 pm:

    Typos. Maybe supposed to be “Last Lap For Last Place Finishers”.

    …or “Last Call For Last Place Finishers”.

    There is a “Last Place” beer. Link: http://www.bluetarpbrew.com/beers/


  20. - DE - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 1:51 pm:

    You see Arlington’s Opening Day card. For a three day week, 8 races, the first 4 with 6 horses. ‘Last lap’ means for all horse racing in Illinois.


  21. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 2:07 pm:

    A typo - it was supposed to read:

    “Rich Miller’s Last Lap Dance


  22. - A guy - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 2:17 pm:

    You’ve seen him run, set aside a lot of extra time.


  23. - Judgment Day - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 2:18 pm:

    “You’ve seen him run, set aside a lot of extra time.”
    ————–

    If it’s a Pub Crawl, he moves faster….


  24. - Former Titan - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 2:28 pm:

    Overheard at Rich Miller’s Last Lap: Bet Starry Hope across the board.


  25. - He Makes Ryan Look Like a Saint - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 2:49 pm:

    If you put a drink in front of him he will run a lot faster!!


  26. - Nick Naylor - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 2:51 pm:

    “Olsick Bachelor Party”. Is that how you feel AFTER you wake up married?


  27. - Nick Naylor - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 2:54 pm:

    Two words: Artificial inspiration, Cholly.


  28. - Cabildero - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 3:03 pm:

    Forget the hearse cause I’ll never die.


  29. - Anonin' - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 3:13 pm:

    “Not mine, not mine, not mine.”

    That’s right You have been busy forcin’ some poor intern into countin’ Mike Madigan votes — groundbreakin’ journalism ain’t what is used to be


  30. - A guy - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 3:57 pm:

    The least we could do is give him a little time on the Stud Farm before sending him to the Glue Factory.

    Just don’t tell the mares.


  31. - Hedley Lamarr - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 4:07 pm:

    “Place it on Lucky Dan.”


  32. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 5:19 pm:

    Rich

    I predict that Danzig Moon will win the Triple Crown this year.


  33. - Hawkeye in Illinois - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 7:30 pm:

    Reminds me of the time several years ago when State Sen. Sam Vadalabene (Edwardsville) was at Fairmount Park racetrack to watch a horse named Senator Sam owned by a friend race. Before the race Sen. Sam (the politician) after a few beers decided he wanted to be the jockey for Sen. Sam (the horse) but was eventually persuaded that was not possible (although he was diminutive enough to be a jockey). The horse was just one of many namesakes for the senator along with buildings, streets, bike paths,etc. As I recall although Sen. Sam the politician never lost an election, Sen. Sam the horse never won a race (perhaps if Sen. Sam had been allowed to ride him maybe he would have). So maybe someday Rich Miller will get to ride Rich Miller


  34. - Vote Quimby! - Wednesday, Apr 29, 15 @ 10:37 pm:

    “With low bets like these, how can you lose?”
    “Rich Miller, renowned harness race driver, hangs up his beard.”
    Cut off from the program, is a request from Balmoral for customers to contact their legislators to allow installation of mechanical slot machines to compete with all of the illegal casinos.


  35. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Apr 30, 15 @ 10:57 am:

    ===busy forcin’ some poor intern into countin’ Mike Madigan votes===

    Those are my most talked-about stories at the Statehouse, and you know it.
