I feel like all you do is go to bachelor parties. This is what my summer is shaping up to be as well.

i'm running out of non-married friends though...i'd put one at probably for marriage in the next year or so, after that i'd say the rest are bachelors for life

Haven't really followed racing as much this year as I usually do. I have been to the Derby twice though and it's quite the experience. FWIW, I'm liking Dublin at 10/1.

Neither marriage nor bachelorhood equates to happiness. You find that inside.

yeah i'm liking Dublin a lot, liked him better before he went up to 10/1 though :-b

i'll probably wheel a tri bet with Dublin, Ice Box and Awesome Act to win...not sure who else i'll have to place and show yet. as wide open as it is with Esky out i may end up with a $60+ trifecta ticket and just hope for a big payout. i still like Paddy O, Lookin At Lucky and Super Saver quite a bit too. looks like the field is still being set too so i have my work cut out for me
we'll probably all chip in on a big Super ticket as well
hoping to do well in the early races so i have more money to toss around for the Derby

How mighty introspective of you. I'd say it has more to do with which group ends up with the larger amount of income but I'm just a materialistic hedonist. Speaking of income, I'm going to bet the race exactly the way Lambskin is, at BoDog.
