So I expanded on what was going to be a blog post, edited, de-“raged” it, and ended up posting it on oww… LOL! So now what? Well, guess I’ll just riff a bit more on it here.
Alex Lloyd. Good for him! It’s easy to take the money and sit on your ass and do nothing or the wrong thing for season after season. The hard part is believing in yourself enough to risk it all and follow your dream. I really hope that HER sticks with him and they can get something going for either this season or 2010.
RHR… Nice spin by all of them. Frankly I’ve never understood the appeal of him on or off track. From the frying pan to the fire that move… It will be interesting to see how long it takes until he’s whining about his equipment again. His win at the Glen last year was a fluke at best thanks to Dixon, other than that his mouth and his attitude get more mileage than his in car prowess… Oh and huge kudos to Lauren George for telling it like it is in the Vision blog.
PT at the glen… :mocks surprise: there is a reason the Glen was on my list of races weeks ago. Nice to see that the powers that be took their heads out of their asses long enough to see the benefits of him being at this event for everyone involved. Of course they stuffed them back up there with regards to something else which I’ll expand on later…
Will Power. He should have been in the car all along. Hopefully the Captain will make good on his statement… At the very least I expect to see him at the next couple of events I’m at (roadies and streeters)
The princess… It won’t come down to anything other than who signs the biggest cheque. Period. You know how cartoon wolves look at cartoon chickens and see it cooked in a pot, steam rising from it? Everyone looks at Danica and sees dollar signs. Not a race car driver, not a winner, not an athlete… just a pay cheque. Likewise it won’t matter if her next ride has fenders, front wings, or pontoons, as long as there are a lot of zeros on that big fat cheque, that’s where her “loyalty” will lie, and where her “career path/marketing plan” will be directed as if it was the plan all along.
Not part of the original article, but WTF is up with F1?! holy soap opera batman. Now do we all see how STUPID Amercian Open Wheel looked with the war and the split and the drama? What a clusterfuck that is. Thankfully I’ve been far too busy to really dig deep into it. Maybe I’ll spend a little time tonight checking it out.
ok… off to work…
