Happy Birthday, Louisville

Today marks the city of Louisville's 233rd birthday, and I'm celebrating in the most Louisville-appropriate manner possible: Reading Hunter Thompson, watching old Muhammad Ali fights and listening to the Get Down Clique.

How have I left my mark on this city? Uhh, how about a quick rap sheet...

--I've snuck into the Derby at least six times since 2002.

--I own the highest batting average in the history of Slugger Field (1-for-1).

--I once delivered a package west of 8th St...on foot.

--I once helped convince some people to wear these creepy Cardinal masks.

--I've been inside the Ali Museum, but still never toured the Ali Museum.

Ok, so I probably could have done more.

In all seriousness, happy birthday, Louisville. Never change.
