And just like that, they’re off. In honor of the 142nd Run for the Roses I figured I’d dedicate this week’s Thursday Things to the best two minutes in sports. Whether you’re a local, visitor, or someone admiring from afar – I’ve got you covered.
Ben Sollee launched his new EP with his take on ‘My Old Kentucky Home‘ just in time for this year’s Derby celebrations – listen and weep.
“The Kentucky Derby: the most exciting two minutes in sports..” is something I’ve heard on repeat for as long as I can remember, and besides KFC, it’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear Kentucky used in a sentence.

The busiest week in Louisville officially begins tomorrow and for many that means ironing out those final details for Kentucky Derby outfit(s) – myself included. I teamed up with I.W. Harper and Scout on Market to score those last minute essentials for what’s sure to be one of the most busy, yet fun weeks I’ve had in awhile.
