William Bradley | Posted 05.25.2011 | Entertainment

It doesn't look like Matt Weiner is much of a Beatles fan. We've had Bob Dylan, the Beach Boys, and now the Rolling Stones ... but the lads from Liverpool have been relegated to Christmas gifts for Don's kids bought by his former secretary.

Each year, I write a column on Derby Day, and if you have followed my advice, you have lost a lot of money. The large fields at the Kentucky Derby throw logic out the window. Still, the betting system I tour is a good one.
