A Horse of a Different Color.

I can't remember ever looking forward to the Kentucky Derby as much as I am this year.  Iowans love to root for other Iowans, even if the other Iowan is a horse.  Full disclosure, Paddy O'Prado has never set hoof in Iowa, but he's owned by a group of Iowans.

Andy Fales is having more fun at Churchill Downs than Clark W. Griswold did at Wally World.  Expect Andy to miss work the next couple of weeks as he undergoes a plastic surgery procedure to wipe the smile off his face.

Andy reports the odds on Paddy O'Prado have improved throughout the week.  There's at least a couple reasons for that... Paddy will start in the 10th position, which is ideal.  Also, the wet track conditions should favor the horse (his mudder was a mudder).

I survived "The Hangover II," but just barely.  Four days in Vegas for my brother's bachelor party led to antiboitics and eight days of recovery.  But it was worth it.  It might have been the best four days of my life.
