The Run for the Roses

Today was the KY Derby. Last Thursday I got a call from my parents. They wanted to know which horse I was betting on to win the Derby. I haven't been following horse racing as closely as I usually do and the only horse I could remember was Chocolate Candy, so I said to bet on him to win for me. His odds? 20-1. On Friday dad went to the casino (they live in Las Vegas) and placed our bets. Between me, my parents, and my mom's brother & his wife, we had nearly every horse picked to win or place or show. Except for the winner. No one picked him to do anything. No one won anything.

Chocolate Candy finished 5th.

And the Penguins lost to the Capitals in Game 1. Not a good sports weekend.
