One of life’s great feelings is getting that big job you’ve applied for. For former Beemie Award winner Ryan Martin, he experienced that joy earlier this year and announced that he’d been hired in the media department at NYRA. A tremendous achievement and Ryan shared the news with his followers and was greeted with congrats from around the industry. Including from many horseplayers like @EMD4Me.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a more passionate horseplayer than EMD4ME. Lives and breathes horseplaying and is a very sharp player. But I have to admit it cracked me up when I saw his actual full tweet to Ryan when he announced his job.
HAHAHA! Congrats on your new job you don’t start for two weeks, but can you fix this please! Normally I like to let someone get settled into a new position before I rag on em about something, but EMD wanted shit to get handled! Ryan was still 1000 miles away from his soon to be new office. But EMD, he pressed on!
Now I will agree that racing has overall done a poor job catering to the needs of horseplayers. But tweeting a guy who doesn’t start his job for 2 weeks about stuff, is just pretty hilarious, and it gets @EMD4ME a Beemie Award!!
