Interesting stuff. Hopefully Bernard can play the right cards and keep everyone on track. I like how he seemed to bring some energy to the series and some forward vision initially but I'm wondering if that's stalling out now.

I'm really curious how the Kentucky crowd will be this week. Normally there would be 4-5 of us going but there's only 2. Labor day weekend and family plans trumped the race for the people that would likely be going with me. ...and it was almost just me going until 1 person was able to make some different arrangements...
