Just a thought...
I understand that, like nearly everything else in life, the Indianapolis 500 is not what it used to be. I really do. I even share some of the bad sentiment. I was mad for a long time about the split.
But if you live too much in the past you are missing out on the present. And I am not just talking about racing.

Perhaps an appropriate thought for this Memorial weekend.

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

As noted in an earlier post, I plan to watch at least part of this week's Indy 500. My problem with the race, though, is that it just doesn't excite my imagination as it did in its glory days. Perhaps thats as much my fault as it is the declining stature of the race but there it is.

He explained why he and most of the Thunder organization were in Moore in a way that impressed me: "I'm an Oklahoman. This is where I live and this is what we do." Russell Westbrook came, crutches and all. Kevin Durant was there too and donated $1 million to tornado relief. They get it. As I said in yesterday's post, folks around here persevere.

That's almost unfair. Monaco is probably the most elegantly beautiful place on the planet and now you tell us that the weather is perfect, too.smile.gif

On another note, I have decided to watch at least some of the Indy 500 on Sunday. The race is only a pale imitation of what it once was but it's still the Indy 500.
A local Chanel in Palm Beach raised over $25,000 for the Moore victims.After losing my house in hurricane Andrew,I kinda know how these people feel.God bless all of them.

Very unfair! We were having the "if you won the lottery" conversation the other day and what would you do first. Of course I said, "follow the F1 circus around the world". I could kill 2 birds with one stone. Enjoy all the racing and site see all the amazing locales in between the races! Now if I could actually win....

I think its ridiculous Pirelli doesnt have a contract for next year yet. Especially with all the changes coming. Whats up with that? Are they expected to spend a massive amount of money developing tires for next year when they dont even know if theyre going to get the contract? eek.gif

No reason to be sorry. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And while I do love the way many AMs look I really dont care for that one.

My personal favorite best looking car EVAR is the Eagle Speedster. It looks like a fleshed out E-Type Jag but its a fully modern, fast car and I need it.

Is there a sweeter sound than a naturally aspirated Ferrari V12? My ears say no. If I got an Enzo I could at least save money by not needing a sound system.

Massa sets no time. mad.gifmad.gif
4 poles in a row for Mercedes. 3 poles in a row for Rosberg. Rosberg being faster than Hamilton is becoming the norm.
Perez outqualifies Button again. Sutil even beat Button.
Raikkonen outqualifies Alonso. Thats a real bummer.

I thought today's qualifying from Monaco was fascinating. The intermittent rain called for tire strategies worthy of a chess match. That, coupled with Monaco's narrowness, tight corners, and startling beauty made for great television. I am wondering whether the slow speeds that Monaco requires and how difficult it is to pass there will allow Mercedes to make something out of its number 1 and 2 spots on the grid for a change.
