Default Handicapping Website Covers Offshore Racing ?

Hi all,

I just got word that a professional sports handicapping website which covers the typical baseball, basketball, football etc will also be covering OFFSHORE POWERBOAT RACING. They're expecting to receive thousands of visitors a month where they'll be providing sports picks to gamblers all over the nation... It's my understanding they're covering OSS, OPA, SBI, Class 1, and P1 over in europe.

Do you know what this means? They're going to be covering our sport and open the eyes to thousands of sports enthusiasts that most have probably never even heard of our kick as$ sport of racing.

I'm interested to see where it goes and see who they're picking. I've already signed up for their free picks.

Website is www.HatePicks.com (check it out)

What are your thoughts?

Yes I designed it for these guys. They're huge handicappers that we were fortunate enough to work with. Of course we talked them into adding an Offshore Racing section since that's the world we live in.

And bluellama... The NASCAR site blake and I created will be in Forbes Magazine July 22nd so make sure you pick up a copy. Thanks for taking interest in Ron Ripple... the website has taken off and is getting worldwide recognition.

The energy drink website we created a year ago that you mention is still up and running. I'm glad you remember that website as well so make sure you spread the word.

OffshoreOnly is a huge family of people and we always appreciate the support and interaction with everyone when we build a website we're proud of. In this case, we're happy we were able to get Offshore Powerboat racing on a website where a lot of fans will be visiting.

Thanks again,

Brock

Congrats on the recognition from Forbes, and I do still look at the energy drink website, but the shipping/taxes to Canada kill the great savings it offers.
