Just touched down at San Diego, and am looking forward to meeting any and all bloggers this week.  I'll be the guy wearing too much sunscreen, and hanging out in the paddock where the horses leave the walking ring and head out onto the track. 

I think it's going well thus far.  Once I boarded the plane, an attractive brunette gave me the once-over, and said, "You're pretty lucky."

"Well, I don't think luck has much to do with it," I suavely replied.  "You have to give credit to excellent genetics, a strict diet, and a great workout program.  You don't get to look like this overnight, you know."

(Awkward pause)

"I meant you were lucky you got the window seat."

(Cue 5 1/2 hours of silence)

Great job with the homework assignment!  Lots of interesting opinions.

Will be back with the Opening Day recap after the races.

Take care,

Dan
