I think this is the last year that you're allowed to bring your own alcohol to the Preakness. I went every year when I was in college. Freakness was always a good time. Everyone gets shit faced. Tons of "show yoru tits" chants...adn the ladies comply.
I was 2 for 3 in convincing someone to run across the top of the port-o-potties when i went.
Also saw lots of dudes get knocked the fuck out. Usually Redskins fans.
reminds me of the indy 500... its a 2-week event. in high school there was a specific day every year when every senior all over the city would skip school without excuse & go to quals in the infield at IMS, called "senior skip day", and have a drunken blast. what would the schools do... suspend 1/3 of their students citywide?
