The Most Boring Two Minutes in Sports

Today's the day that inbred horses owned by billionaires, ridden by bulimic dwarfs, race around an artificial oval somewhere in Kentucky. There is no other event in all of sports with a higher hype-to -significance ratio. The Kentucky Derby even beats out the first round of the NBA Playoffs in this respect, and that's saying something.  [Come to think of it, we'd pay to see Royce White running around a track carrying a horse on his back.]

Here in Fauquier County, it's the 88th Virginia Gold Cup, in which real horses are ridden by real people over a more-or-less real course.
