It would’ve paid me $23.20, or with me betting the way I generally do, I would’ve cashed a $232 ticket yesterday at Old Hilltop had I made the trip.
Of course, if I was lucky, it would’ve evened me up for the day — but that’s for another Preakness.
I didn’t bet the race at all, but I gave you the exacta in my blog at 1:49 p.m. yesterday.
Yesterday, my wife and I watched the race on TV and were glad we weren’t there when the black clouds moved across Baltimore. Must’ve been a helluva scene out on that infield when those gigantic raindrops started rocking it around 4 p.m.
But I made a PROMISE to myself that if the race actually returns — and that IS an "if" at this point — I’m going back to the Preakness next year. I’m gonna get a swanky clubhouse seat, put a hat and coat and tie on and rip it up!
Just thought I’d share that — I don’t even know why? But it looked like we missed some fun yesterday, and another chance to talk Free The Birds with people as well.
But we still had fun staying dry and watching Costas, Hammond, Mayne and company bring it into my living room in HD!
Two dumb thoughts: Did anyone else seeing Curlin’ taking a giant "constitutional" all over the track during the post parade? He almost looked lame before the race, until we saw what was happening on the backside…Must’ve worked, right, cause he WON!

Went to dinner at Kali’s Court (not a WNST sponsor but SHOULD be!)…had never been there before…WOW was that place GREAT!?!?! Everybody has always told me how good it is, but even so — it held up its reputation nicely!
A "special" dinner place no doubt, but it was right on the mark! Bravo!
And does anybody else think Carlos Mencia is as funny and as "right on" as we do…I know the whole Joe Rogan thing, but he’s a funny dude!
