All eyes are on Windsor this weekend but who says sports and royalty don’t go together?
Wine in my teacup and pinky up,
The Last Night’s Game Team
Never say never. You may remember the heartwarming story about USC (University of Southern California) long-snapper Jake Owen. Jake has been blind since he was 12 but he worked hard to make the football team. If that wasn't enough, he can now add driving his list of skills. Thanks to former NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) driver Todd Bodine, Owen made his driving debut on the Charlotte Motor Speedway. A FEEL GOOD FRIDAY READ
Saturday may be the best day ever with the royal wedding and the FA Cup (England’s soccer league championship) between Chelsea and Manchester United. While we’ll be able to enjoy both from the comfort of our couch, Prince William is trying to figure out how to be in two places at once. He is the best man in the wedding but also the President of the English Football Federation, who typically hands out the trophy to the winning soccer team. There are conflicting reports but it seems he may be able to uphold both obligations. TIME TRAVEL?
After winning the Kentucky Derby, Justify is looking for another victory in the quest for the Triple Crown at the Preakness Stakes tomorrow. Luckily for Justify, the field in the race is less than half the size of the Derby with only eight horses competing. Ever wonder how a horse like Justify makes the trip from Kentucky to the race in Baltimore, MD? Well, it’s in first class accommodations of course. Although his food is probably just as bad as normal airplane food. TRAVEL PICS
We’re not sure how you train for this sort of athletic event but the Preakness is known for its Porta Potty races. It’s not what you think, people literally race on top of rows of portable toilets while the crowd throws beer cans and other objects. As you would expect, this doesn’t end well for most. Their loss is our gain as this video is too good to pass up. WARNING: YOU MAY PEE YOUR PANTS LAUGHING AT THIS VIDEO (oh the irony)
WHAT TO WATCH
The WNBA (Women’s National Basketball Association) begins their season today and there’s a new kid on the block, the Las Vegas Aces. The Aces will make their debut hoping to follow in the successful footsteps of the other new professional team in Las Vegas, the Vegas Golden Knights (NHL – National Hockey League).
