There are certain events that we spend a ridiculous amount of time getting ready for that really only last about 2 minutes.

The Kentucky Derby is one of those events. The guys get to put on an uncomfortable bow tie or vest and get their eyes poked out for hours by their ladies huge hat they had to wear for the special occasion.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all about a big hat. They're really only appropriate certain times of the year. So ladies, embrace that floppy hat all day Saturday.
