Churchill Downs Goes Cardinal Red

There was a little bit of controversy a year ago when Churchill Downs let up one of the twin spired red and the other blue before Louisville's Final Four game against Kentucky.

To be honest, I didn't really have a problem with it. Even though I think Big Blue Nation drastically overestimates its presence in Jefferson County, there's certainly enough blue in the city of Louisville - and presumably working at Churchill Downs - for the equal treatment to have been warranted.

Thankfully there was no need for any such debate this year.

Basketball capital of the world right now. Horse racing capital of the world in a month.

Not a bad little city.
