This weekend is the Kentucky Derby. Although, based on current trends in the selling of naming rights, it might now be called the Super Poligrip Denture Adhesive Derby. “Ladies and gentlemen, please direct your attention to the Chew With Confidence Winners Circle.”
The Derby is often called “the most exciting two minutes in sports”, mainly because it sounds better than “the most exciting two minutes with farm animals”. However, the horses involved are amazing athletes. For one thing, unlike a lot of professional ball players, I don’t think horses spend their off seasons in divorce proceedings.
