The Derby and Wes Welker - 05/16/14

Have you seen this story about Patriots receiver Wes Welker and the Kentucky Derby? So, reportedly Welker won nearly 60,000 dollars on a bet on Derby Day. then, preceded to pass out $100 bills to random  people at the track. Now, Churchill Downs says they overpaid him by 15,000 dollars and they want their money back. Really?

Here's a link to TMZ's story on it.  http://www.tmz.com/2014/05/16/wes-welker-churchill-down-kentucky-derby-overpayment-15k/

A tote malfunction? Seems to me like that's The Downs' problem. Can you imagine if it had worked the other way? Welker gets underpaid by 15,000, doesn't realize it and goes back days later to try and collect? He'd have never gotten that money.

Take the loss, Churchill. There's always next year.
