Happy Kentucky Derby! Or, as we say in Louisville, just "Happy Derby!"
The most exciting two minutes in sports is just, um, two minutes. So that leaves a lot of time for drinking, eating and drinking. That's where Eater comes in. Hi! We're onsite at Churchill Downs throughout the weekend and will be adding all of our Kentucky Derby (and Oaks) coverage to this page. Also, feel free to play along via the Twitter and Facebook.
