I never saw a pig race anywhere.
It’s a thing they do every year at the Texas state fair. And the cotton bowl is in the fairgrounds, they played the game in the cotton bowl, ergo pig races. Unique at least.
Babu!!!!

In my area we have goat races at local breweries. We have“bock” beer/lager festivals. Why goat races at a brewery? Bock is a style of lager brewed in Einbeck. Citizens of Munich pronounced "Einbeck" as "ein Bock" ("a billy goat"). The beer became known as "bock". As a visual pun, a goat often appears on bock labels. 
There is a 3 legged goat, named Peggy who could out run the 4 legged goats. Unique at least.

Weight advantage. That’s why God makes small jockeys.
Are we having fun yet?

The Flyers (32-19-7) hold a four-point edge over the Hurricanes for the Eastern Conference's second wild-card spot.

I was a Flyers fan for one game. When Bobby Clarke and Dave Schultz and Ed Van Impe and the rest lined up on the blue line and beat down the Godless, soulless Russian Red Army team.

They gots some ugly uniforms

Mother Russia created these Red Army uniforms.
The Red Army was still undefeated with a tied with the Montreal Canadiens. The FLYERS were the league's last hope.

Please do not bring another sport into this thread. So far, we have pig racing and goat racing. Now you want to bring in horse racing?  ::)

Those games were a couple years before Igor Larionov and Sergei Makarov joined the Red Army team, and a decade before Arturs Irbe played for them.

The overachieving Sharks of the 90s - when they had these three - were fun to watch

We are only a matter of hours away from the NHL’s latest Stadium Series game at the Air Force Academy - right down to the fighter jet that will be next to the rink. No Pig Racing.
