Saturday afternoon and early evening; some of the richest, most powerful people in the world converged upon Churchill Downs in Louisville for the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby. Joining them in a day of mint juleps and funny hats? None other than recently acquired Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez, of course. On the ‘red carpet’ for the event, the newest member of the Eagles QB core was part of one of the more peculiar interviews I can remember while discussing his new home in Philadelphia.
As if ‘The Sanchize’s’ riveting conversation was not enough, apparently the notorious NFL socialite made sure to get his money’s worth at a day of high-society shenanigans. The following photo came courtesy of a Deadspin.com article submitted by @TAG787.
Coach Chip Kelly might need to administer breathalyzer tests and make sure Sanchez’s smoothies aren’t spiked. At least he showed the endurance and resilience to stay on his feet all day.
