The Way It Is

Went to the Derby yesterday......


I took the trip down to Louisville yesterday for the 133rd running of the Kentucky Derby. It was my first time, and it was completely different than I thought it was going to be. When you think of the derby, you think of dressing up, and classy people, and mint juleps, correct? It was more like mud wrestling, naked rednecks and mint juleps. Granted, we were in the infield, but I don't think I would ever do that again. Next year, it is the grandstand or bust. Then, we can actually see the race and not worry about the weird and crazy people that surrounded us.

Wow, that is definitely NOT what I think about when I think of the Kentucky Derby! Wasn't the Queen of England there, or am I thinking of something else?

She was there....but far, far away from where I was. Honestly, I can't describe how different it turned out to be. My girlfriend was practically the only girl in the infield wearing a dress and derby hat.
