Saturday.

The fans in the stands at Franklin Field this morning know that things are going to be a bit different today.

For one thing, it's overcast instead of sunny, an after-effect of last night's rain. We're looking at a forecast high today of 70 instead of yesterday's 76.

Taing a look at the radar map, there's a line of rain stretching from Detroit to Nashville, But it's moving more north than east, so hopefully the brunt of it won't hit us.

The other sign that it's Saturday is that the general admission-ticketed fans in the end zone are under the overhang instead of down in front. The front seats are reserved today, and you can be sure that they'll be full when the USA vs. the World stars come out.

That leads me to the other thing that's different about Saturday, which is that reporters aren't allowed in the infield. At least, that's what I was told. Hopefully the people in charge will change their minds about that, but for now all the pictures will be coming from press row.

The big races are on ESPN2 from 2-4 p.m. today, so you'll be able to watch the big stuff along with me. Who cares about the NFL Draft?

As always, leave comments or send me an email if there's something you want to know.
