Re: Important

Watching mickey mouse with my daughter and the character on the show just said "look for the triangle shaped bush."

Disney has a sense of humor.

There is one where goofy is holding something in his hand and it looks like he is flopping a huge dildo out of his pants. I laughed my ass off

Disney is dirty when you actually take the time to look at it.

Re: Important

I'm glad he's chosen not to race today. The media's negative spin/pr backlash wouldn't have been worth whatever result he got in the race.

I saw the video for the first time, and IMO, it was obviously very foolish to exit his car, then stray that far into the main racing groove in order to confront Tony. I'm not even really sure why he was upset at Tony. They went into the turn side by side and the kid basically spun out. I don't think they even touched. It didn't seem like there was malicious intent on Tony's part. Maybe Tony crowded him into the "marbles"(or equivalent for dirt tracks) or something, idk. It's easy to armchair quarterback this situation, but any anger could have been handled in the pits.

I also learned that these sprint cars don't have spotters, which is surprising. A spotter could have helped a lot.

edit: kid did hit the wall

Re: Important

I honestly don't think Stewart saw the guy till it was too late. Very stupid choice to get out of his car.

Re: Important

Tony is the local boy here. What happened was terrible and nobody should have to go through that but like was said.....running toward a racecar on a live track is a bad idea. The hatred people have toward NASCAR drivers they don't like is mind boggling to me. I've seen so many people call him a murderer today simply because"he's a jerk". I don't follow NASCAR personally but this is a terrible tragedy and I'm sure it's going to haunt him.

Country ribs and chicken breast on the stick burner today. Using some fresh oak from a friends fallen tree.

Yum. It's been a while since I cooked up some country ribs

Re: Important

so i realize this video isn't entirely real...all the shots are real, however, they took a lot of takes to get them. regardless of that, for whatever reason, this blows my mind. don't pay attention to the weird music...

Re: Important

Drag Racing Friday night, Crandon (W.E. Rock) with Mac and Grace on Saturday, and TUDOR United SportsCar Championship @ Road America today.

What a fun weekend, I wish they were all this exciting, but then I would be completely broke.
