This is the first time in over a decade when I really have no interest in the Kentucky Derby. With Uncle Mo out, the field has been described in some circles to being akin to the 1982 Grammy nominees for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance which were Wendy O Williams (of the Plasmatics), Lita Ford and Pia Zadora. Hardly Hall of Famers. (OK maybe I'm the only "circle" making that comparison.)
I will still end up watching the race somewhere with a beer in hand and this does give me the opportunity to drag out one of my favorite bits of Presidential trivia. Did you know that Richard Nixon was the only sitting President to ever attend a running of the Kentucky Derby?
