    A few things, Norm:

    1.) If you're planning on seeing any live horses from the infield, hate to disappoint. You'll be watching on giant replay screens.

    2.) Piss in plastic bottles. There are, I think, like 1/2 a portapotty for every 1000 people or something in the infield (exaggerated, but still).

    3.) Do not go with any sense of modesty. There have been sexual assaults, at least gropings, girls flashing on guys' shoulders, fights and everything else. Everyone in there is drunk by the first race, so the next four hours waiting for the Derby are real fun.

    4.) Be safe. Seriously. I've heard it's like a war zone in there.

    Thanks for the info, IJAG. I'd heard most of that already, but the plastic bottle tip is a good one. Looks like we'll be making a Gatorade run prior to heading over there.

    And of course, I'm counting on the flashing. ;D

    Hey, leave cricket alone. It has some great traditions, like gambling and match-fixing and afternoon tea.

    The infield at the Derby is one of those things that needs to be experienced to be believed.

    There is no more raucous a jaunt through the heart of the creaky Bible Belt, full of all the proper fuck-you-itiveness.
  8. And stabbing the coach to death when you lose to Ireland.

    Love the Derby. Always have, always will. Will definitely catch that. Have not attended in person, but it's high on the short list of sporting event 'to dos'.

    No fight, though. The monthly Texas Hold Em Saturday night/Sunday am marathon is this weekend, and we're playing at a guy's house where we're in the garage for cigar smoking purposes.
