I was doubly disappointed today.

First, I had wanted to watch the Preakness. I got so involved in watching reruns of NCIS that I completely forgot about it until about 7:30 PM.

Then I found some news and learned that Rachel Alexandra had beat Mine That Bird. She's the first filly to win the Preakness since 1924, so I guess that's cause for celebration. I so wanted Mine That Bird to win and then go on to the Belmont.

There hasn't been a Triple Crown Winner since Affirmed won in 1978. That's much too long to wait. I don't follow racing, but I'm always interested in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont. There's something so special about having one horse win all three races.

Oh well, as they used to say in Booklyn, "Wait'll next year!"
