    Did anyone see the Kentucky Derby yesterday?! :eek: A very fast start, slowing to what many derby fans would consider a crawl at the finish, allowing a long-shot to win. At 50-1, the winner made someone lots of money. :D

    And how about NBC's announcer Tom Durkin. I saw the race in person, but the TV replay was even more exciting. Tom is a great announcer and really makes it fun for the viewer. I love listening to him call a race. :)

    Weather was beautiful; Fans were great; and the Mint Juleps were very tasty. A great day at the races. :cool:

    P.S. If you missed the race, see it here.

    I saw the race. Close. I don't think Giacomo is a triple crown winner. How about you?

    No way. He'll be lucky to place in two weeks. But that's the same thing I was saying about his chances yesterday... :rolleyes:

    ...and a huge heart.
