Comedy moment of the day--some guy near us in the infield started jumping up and down for precious passion, yelling and screaming as he neared the wire. Problem was, it was the field's first time around. We had to calm the fool down and tell him they had to go around again.
3 miles down the road from the great race place, afootball game was playing at the rose bowl. Attendance was 75,000. Teams were UCLA and Washington. Their won-loss records are like 3-4 and 2-5. How in the world could that game out-draw the BC?
After all the disappointments of missed triple crowns, like smarty jones, funny cide, heck all the way back to the bid, and tragedies like Barbaro, and others that I can't think of, finally for just one day at least, there was a joyous end to the day.
