As we wait for the beginning of the Belmont Stakes, an event I'll watch with a bit of interest, just because no horse has won the Triple Crown since I've been on this planet we call Earth, I admit, I'd be a heck of lot more interested if a baseball player was looking to win the Triple Crown for the first time since 1967.
Anyway, this is a weird story. I didn't even know there was a John Lennon statue in Cuba. Apparently, Fidel must have been a big fan of "I am the Walrus."
Let me also mention how damn hot J.D. Drew is right now. I don't mean good-looking; I mean he hits the ball hard every time he's up. This is why the Red Sox signed him.
Apparently, Lynda Carter is wonderful at finding dead bodies.
And I guess that's it. The race is going to start and I want to capture the moment so some day I can tell all of my 1,234 offspring where I was when a horse won a race. But let me mention that this little kid singing "New York New York" looks to be auditioning for the role of "young Clay Aiken" in some future awful Lifetime movie.
Oh, and don't forget: The Breeders are Toad's Place tonight.
