Welcome to another edition of Deep Dish Sports with the Iceman Brandon Cohn.  My thoughts and prayers go out to the people who died and were injured in the Boston Marathon bombing.

Today's show includes a discussion on the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby which is coming up on May 4.  We break down the field, and talk about who the early favorites will be, as well as talk about some of the early entries strengths and weaknesses.

We finish the show talking about Lakers guard Kobe Bryant's torn achilles injury and how it will affect his future in the NBA.

My special thanks to Sunland Park Race Track and Casino publicity director Eric Alwin for joining me on today's show.

If you would like to contact the Iceman you can email me at, bcohn@krod.com, follow me on Twitter @buddies1023, or friend me on Facebook at Brandon Cohn.  Don’t forget to listen to the Iceman on Crunchtime every Saturday from 10-1pm on 600 ESPN El Paso.

"Most Kentucky Derbys Brandon are not won at the mile and a quarter position which is the finish, but about a mile and an eighth.  So you need to already have your move uncorked and  ready to go and have control of the race with about a couple hundred yards to go.  I think Orb is good enough to do that."
