I love curling. Looks like a wonderful drinking game. Unfortunately, very little ice in these parts....

And it was free. Once it's gone, there's no replacement in waiting.

Problem with racing today is that we need more people like this to look up to and then pin our hopes that it'll make the sport better:

I'm watching live curling from Edmonton. U-S-A! Down the Canucks.

Exactly that, 2 weeks time and summer starts again with historic weekend at Road Atlanta. The stock cars and TAs will clear the cobwebs in seconds coming down the back stretch. Kudkus even more so when they work.

In curling news, USA lose to their neighbors from the north (AKA America's hat) and now are facing the Swiss. Someone will eventually win a prize and it's likely to be Canada. Dig deep into the interwebs to find the results, because I am getting tired of Monday and am tapping out.

Pending kids soccer (football) schedules, I'll head to Southern Nationals for some drags. It's fantastically good nonsense...

And again, hoping some relief for my favorite event of the year where I can find some time on Saturday for the Mitty. Plenty of Porsches for the 40th anniversary.......

John "Hit or Miss" Schuster led the US team to an ignominious defeat, 8-2 or 1-2 after seven ends. The Canads will win the title again ... and again ... and again ....

I already got my dose of live racing ... all of Sebring and St. Pete including PWC.

Sebring showed me again how freaking amazing a race can be trackside while it is bland as crap on the box.

Yes, once you're at a race, you enjoy it more bring closer to the action and seeing why the drivers earn their dosh

Spent a really good day @ Santa Pod on Sunday, that cleared my senses and reminded me why I love Drag racing. Looking forward to 3 days @ Easter.

I went to see the Top Fuel dragsters at Santa Pod last year for the first time. Never seen anything like it! Well recommended.

I've learned not to take racing too seriously. 2008 felt and still feels like my favorite F1 season. Then again, having started watching IndyCar this season, it feels like the best racing I've ever seen.

Back in late '00s I doubt I would have preferred IndyCar over F1. F1 had more technical competition and was still pure from today's IndyCar things like push-to-pass, double-points finale, and closed pitlane when the SC comes out was a short-lived thing in F1.

I really got tired of racing when F1 started getting gimmicky in 2010s, and I've found my interest in racing in other series these days. IndyCar is my favorite form of racing, just because of the great racing it provides. Even if F1 returned to what it was like in the late '00s, I doubt I'd prefer it over IndyCar. IndyCar has its flaws but I don't take it so seriously, just enjoy the great racing it has to offer. I'm fine with its lack of technical competition, if anything it means closer racing on-track.

Similarly, I might hate IMSA e.g. for its caution procedures. Think about Sebring last year, like six cars or so restarting nose-to-tale in the last 30 mins. For sure that didn't represent the performance of 11 hours and 30 minutes. But I didn't take that so seriously, it also offered great racing for the victory.

I'm sitting on my deck, mid 70s degrees F, listening to a college baseball game, having a Brother Thelonious Belgian Style Abbey Ale after a particularly long day. I'm fine with this deal.

Was a glorious day to drive around Atlanta, and only a bit of congestion next to our storage snafu, especially on the last day at that job. Grilled dinner, few 420 ales and quiet at the gf's house. All is good and hopefully the city is good with 2 days off the second full week of work and 3 days at the track in a bit.

IMSA may be questionable rules and competition, ALMS wasn't much different, PWC is basically a read about it after the fact event and WEC is always forgotten by me. But baseball is back, trees and shrubs are flowering, sorry Augusta National, and race fuel is in the air soon. I can't complain, and a decent 2-3 week break from here a couple times a year does help as well.

I was in Decatur and Lilburn today. Love some spring break traffic.

Still haven't figured out dinner. Think I'll have another Rec Ale while I ponder it some more...
