    My Old Kentucky Home

    Thursday afternoon I will join a group of eight or nine friends as we make our annual pilgrimage to Louisville for the 135th running of the Kentucky Oaks on Friday and Kentucky Derby on Saturday. Our seats are always amazing...good to have friends in high places...and the laughs are many and often.

    This year I will document the weekend via Twitter and Twitpic with my phone. If you don't follow me on Twitter (@sofro) do so if you want to get an inside look into the Derby weekend. You can also follow @derbyoaks to get the latest news from the track. There should be some interesting photo's from the races as we typically bump into a number of celebrities and media types.

    After a full day of racing we typically frequent a dive bar a couple of blocks away from the main entrance to Churchill Downs...not sure of the name but we just call it Deuce's. I will get some pics with Deuce and his buddies who run the barbecue behind the bar.

    Cheers and best of luck if you are betting the Derby. I personally like the favorite I Want Revenge but that may change come 5 PM on Saturday.
