Thanks for the ping Grok!
And for hosting this week!
(2 in a row gets me burned out!)
I really meant to offer you a trophy, but that’s okay. I’ll take one.
Ruh roh. I have 2 in a row? Yeeeeeeeee.
Try 36 in a row sometime. ;-)
OMG! That must have been a lean year!
Glad I can pitch in.
Oh yeah! Leaa and mean.. Some folks probably remember the first year or two ,, what a couple of grinders those years were.. lol.. when Nascar was finding itself .. or something.. and we had the occasional lovefest on the threads back then too.
speaking of lovefests..
Harvick, Montoya go helmet-to-helmet at Glen
NASCAR spokesman doesn’t expect penalties to follow
Harvick & Montoya; Leaa & Mean?
Be on the lookout for cavemen at the tracks in the near future. and who knows, behind the wheel , just a matter if time. or not. :-)
darn keyboard. :-}
They react amazingly well to occasional mild encouragement.
See ya at the festivities this weekend!
You have a knack for putting things in perspective. By golly, you're right... two will be just dandy.
I haven’t had 2 in a row for awhile, lol, so I have lots of time to get that knacky thing goin’. ;-)
Is that this weekend?
Yay Yay must feel like the chicken on the lower roosting rung...
I wonder if Eaker knows...
It’s your turn to ask him...
There... I fixed it...
GO TONY GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
I wonder what the 31 is gonna look like this week.
Before or after the race?
That’s what I meant. I’d not be surprised if AT&T just walked away.
I’m confused. I imagine they’ll take the fight as far as they can, having the funds and all. The 11the circus said they didn’t have standing, so AT&T will ask for an en banc hearing of the whole court, and failing that, appeal to the USSC. Best o ruck on that.
From the article I linked, I don’t understand just what Nascar has given them 5 days to do... should make for an interesting week. Here’s what I’d do if I were an AT&T marketing type... I’d redesign the Cingular splat logo to have the blue world swirls with a tiny ‘cingular’ name on the bottom, barely visible. There, cingular it is.
Sadly, Richard Childress and Burton seem to be bystanders in this corporate grab-a$$ game.
Did I mention I’m confused?
Looks like we are going to get wet again.
Yep, Tony’s the man as I sit here fondling the 20 car styrofoam beer can holder. Hurry Sunday.
Is that Stevie Ray Vaughan’s brother?
Yes it is. Axe grindin runs in the family.
