Kentucky Derby

Feels like time to start planning for the Kentucky Derby. This usually ends up as a party of one for me. But that may be because the entire party menu has been a shot of bourbon. How about this menu featuring "Dead Heat Louisville Burgoo?"

Here's a list of the early contenders. It's hard to get interested in the latest buzz about Scat Daddy. But who could resist a horse named Cobalt Blue? The big names aren't there yet. But the race isn't 'til May 5. There are eleven "prep races" to go before then. I'm going to go write some invitations.

Oh, I am so much more excited for the Derby than I was for the NCAA playoffs (why does that surprise me?)

I'm going to start planning my Derby party...

Interesting how you can build an entire party on 2 minutes of horses running in a circle

Well, that's two minutes more actual excitement than most of our parties have.

Maggy,

'Cause horses are much easier on the eye than tall men in shorts?

Have you seen this amazingly great Secretariat video?

Sappy, yes, but gets me every time.
