Week in Short

It's been a very productive week in the Chasm. BEA was this week and, once again, I was not there.  (SOMEDAY!) I'm kind of hyper at the moment because finally, after three long weeks, THE BELMONT IS TOMORROW! If you've been living under a rock, the Belmont Stakes is the third jewel in Thoroughbred horse racing's Triple Crown. I'll Have Another rocked both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness and if he wins tomorrow, he will become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.

ETA: No Triple Crown this year. A couple hours after I wrote this, it was announced that I'll Have Another was scratched from the Belmont.
