I don't like horse racing and I don't know if I really feel like pretending I like horse racing for a day, but today is Melbourne Cup day so I guess I don't have a choice. What are your thoughts on horse racing and the Melbourne Cup? What are your thoughts on the hats?
I think there's something a bit sinister about the whole thing. To begin with, horse racing is a pretty harsh and cruel sport for the horse itself. Then there's the whole dreadful celebs in hats aspect of it. Then there's the whole gambling thing, which is fine I guess, but yeah.
I suppose I'm a bit of a killjoy but I can't help but feel like there is just an aura of forced fun surrounding the Melbourne Cup. Not really my thing at all.
What are your thoughts on the Melbourne Cup. And folks that have the day off — what are you all getting up to?
