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.
