2016 Kentucky Derby Drunken Roundup


I had to leave the house early Saturday so I didn’t get around to posting the annual BC Kentucky Derby tribute via the words of Hunter S. Thompson and my favorite photos from the Derby over the years.
So we’ll just do a recap of 142 as a tribute. Still the best paragraph of words from HST’s Decadent and Depraved:
“Thousands of raving, stumbling drunks, getting angrier and angrier as they lose more and more money. By midafternoon they’ll be guzzling mint juleps with both hands and vomitting on each other between races. The whole place will be jammed with bodies, shoulder to shoulder. It’s hard to move around. The aisles will be slick with vomit; people falling down and grabbing at your legs to keep from being stomped. Drunks pissing on themselves in the betting lines. Dropping handfuls of money and fighting to stoop over and pick it up.”
Here we go with a recap of the 142nd Derby. Have a photo or video of something I’ve missed that needs to be included? Let me know: [email protected] or @bustedcoverage.
