Quick catch-up post while awaiting the arrival of the morning project

Friday night's game froze me to my bones. I opted for the cab-home rather than than the leave-early-to-get-the-T approach, but by the time I got up I could scarcely move. Rain started minutes after I got there for BP, but there are a few random shots from BP and from my center-field perch next to the TV cameras here.

Stayed home Saturday for triumph and tragedy in the Derby. Too complicated for a workday post, but I'll get back to it before the Preakness. Concentrating on the good for now, it was a brilliant choice under the circumstances to put Big Brown on the far outside (you can see that the horses in 18 or 19 got badly squeezed and all but sat on his haunches when his jockey had to hit the brakes) and he got a masterful ride in addition to having the speed and stamina to take the win.

I don't have a thumbnail page for Sunday yet, but did get a few chosen shots edited...
Tons of samples under the cut!Collapse )

More tonight, I hope!
