Chomping at the bit for a long holiday weekend. Nice Timing…badly needed. Good things happening around me right now, lets hope the momentum continues. I got certified in CPR this week. I am glad I did it. I think it might be a great idea for any parent.
This Planet LeMans article made me realize that despite the continued tough times for sports car racing in the U.S., for the first time in a long time there is an International Sports Car Championship. It even has a leg that I will be attending.
Some racing on tap this weekend,
Atlanta for NASCAR
Indy is in Kentucky – Ed Carpenter is on pole (STFU!)
Also in the ATL this weekend: DragonCon, and the College GameDay Crew.
A lot of my friends are excited about the start of college football this weekend…I would be happier if it actually felt at all like fall.
I actually won an internets contest this week!
Thanks to the folks at the Hungry Southerner – an all Atlanta crew (SVM to be exact) they are in the sidebar, and if you don’t read them…you should be!
Some links to keep you entertained:
Jalopnik took Danica to task Friday. They missed the mark a bit (one glaring error referred to a “track bar” as a “truck bar”), and were pretty vicious. That being said, the part about her not trying to learn car setups…dead on.
This guy is catching trout…by hand!
Dagmar Midcap has turned in her bluescreen clicker (I had not heard about her boyfriend’s suicide)
Not sure how much I believe that this is actually a summer dish…but I will give the corn chowder a shot.
