Mine That Bird!
Shortly after I made yesterday's blog entry about not taking part in this year's Kentucky Derby, the lovely and talented Victoria Lee texted me and said "hey, I'm at the Derby, want me to place a bet for you?" And I'm the boy who can't say no.
We both decided to go for the longest of all long shots - Mine That Bird to win - and to my amazement, that nag came in by a long length and left all the other ponies in the dust. The favorite, Friesan Fire, ended up near the back of the pack.
It just shows to go ya. I love this planet. Drinks are on me for the next month, peeps-o-mine.
