The Preakness: It's Like The Kentucky Derby, But...Classier...

by Chiara Atik · May 17, 2010

The Preakness is exactly like the Kentucky Derby...in that there are horses. The audience is invited to sing "Maryland, My Maryland" along with the United States Naval Academy Glee Club...and then they get right back to their beer pong/bikini contest judging/passing out in the grass. We especially enjoyed the "Drink Up Bitches! Party In The Infield!" tshirts.-

Good lord, Maryland! Pull yourself together, please!

See, they wear hats at the Preakness...just like the Derby...

Passed out from the excitement of the horse race, no doubt...

Let's just say this was the only photo not inappropriately zoomed-in....

Ah yes, the horses, remember them, anyone? No? Ok.

Back to the REAL competition, then....
