Wild Hats at the Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby is Saturday and we had a bunch of Extra Mustard writers race each other to make the fastest mint julep (and spill all over themselves). The Derby is also known for its style, specifically the crazy/spectacular/unique hats worn by those in attendance. The gallery above has our favorites over the years.

Best Seats in the House

I'm not a big rugby guy, but I may travel to London this weekend so I can sit on a sliding bench. The new invention, which will be installed for a Sevens rugby match later this month, moves up and down on a custom 80-meter track and reaches speeds up to 20 mph. It's like running up and down the sideline watching the action, only the slide does all the running for you.
