Win, Place, or Show

The Kentucky Derby is tomorrow at Churchill Downs and will be celebrated and watched all over the country. For instance, I will be attending a derby party, complete with gambling/gaming, mint juleps, and floppy hats. Do you watch the derby? Do you bet on it? You can bet officially on the site Twinspires.com (it's free to join).

I love the names of the horses. Click here for this year's list of contenders.

I've never really watched the Kentucky Derby. I use to think it was cruel. But I recently watched 'The Sting' again, so that spark for gambling on horses has ignited. I may watch it.

I always watch the actual race. I could give a sh*t about the first 2 hours of nothingness.

That party sounds like a lot of fun. Did you wear a big hat? I want to have a party just so I can wear a big hat. Got any photos?
