Later this afternoon, I'll be heading to my first ever Kentucky Derby. Every year I watch the Derby, with no knowledge whatsoever on horses I might add,  because every year my family places some sort of bet on the race. My grandpa always kicks it off with a phone call and his pick. And he's picked more winners than anybody else.So this year I'll be placing a bet in his name at the track.

No grandstand for me, we're going total infield, where the real fun is. In case you are unaware of what the infield brings, check out Spencer Hall's piece on the Derby from last year.

Do you have a Kentucky Derby tradition? Who's your favorite? Don't know of any of the horses like everyone else? SBNation's got you covered with a list of all the horses you need to know about for Saturday.

See yall on Monday.
