Here are three spectacular events that will get you on your feet. 1. For pomp, pageantry, and heart-pumping action, few experiences can compare to the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. Held annually on the first Saturday in May, the "Run for the roses" is the first leg and top jewel of horse racing's Triple Crown. The pre-derby Kentucky Oaks race, celebrity-studded galas, flowing mint juleps, and famous derby hats make this thoroughbred of sporting events the must-do social occasion of the year. 24 Between June 12 and July 13, 2014, some 32 teams from around the globe will descend on Brazil to compete for the 20th FIFA World Cup. The world's biggest singlesport competition, the World Cup is held every four years in a continental rotation. This year's locale promises to do it up big, accelerating infrastructure projects and putting the finishing touches on soccer stadiums in all 12 host cities. 3. In 1921 twenty golfing greats came together for a friendly match between the U.S. and Great Britain. Six years later, the first official Ryder Cup was played, and 2014 marks the first time since 1973 that the tournament has returned to the game's motherland. After the dramatic turn at Medinah in 2012, Team USA is sure to be ready for its comeback on Centenary Course from September 26 - 28, 2014.
