There is that element of getting tangled up.

He handles pressure well. We all know that.

I can only imagine how chapped his lips&cheeks must get after all the smooches from his fans.

perhaps her demise is premature..

Fans line up for Danica Patrick in Indy
http://sports.yahoo.com/irl/news;_ylt=Aj9lHJSZy4WoNtbmRpPZByrRv7YF?slug=ap-irl-indy500notebook
By CLIFF BRUNT, AP Sports Writer May 29, 1:23 pm EDT

INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—Danicamania has returned to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

A week after fans booed the popular driver, track security had to turn folks away from a Danica Patrick autograph session at the track Saturday.

Fans turned on Patrick after she blamed a poor qualifying run on her crew and the car’s setup during an interview that was broadcast over the track’s public address system.

On Saturday, however, there were plenty of fans who wanted a chance to meet her. She had one of the longest lines, rivaled only by defending Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves. In fact, lines for the two most popular IndyCar drivers were so long that security cut them off well before the autograph session’s 9 a.m. start time.

And when Patrick was introduced during the drivers’ meeting, the cheers for her were among the loudest.

He is the only driver to win the Indianapolis 500 (which he won four times), the Daytona 500, the 24 Hours of Daytona, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. (From Wikipedia)

My husband’s grandmother used to live within walking distance of the track and attended the race for probably 30 years. I got to go a few times and fell in love with the Indy 500 the first time I witnessed (felt) it in person!

Seems to be an ill handling car and wind picking up. Got baby back ribs and a beef brisket on the slow cooker grill.

What bad luck for Will Power. Refueling nozzle pulls off and stays with his car. At least he gets a yellow to come in and remove it.

I like the flashing red lights on the cars tails.. good idea..

brisket sounds good and ribs too.. reminds me I need to clean some sweet corn up, I may do a meat later,, these long race days are tough..

The slow cooker will take all day so I don’t have to watch it closely. It has a pan of water above the charcoal so it won’t dry out the meat. I can take care of it during cartions.

We did up ribs yesterday, with enough left over for today, so we could relax a little. Just had brunch of buttermilk oat bran pancakes with fresh blueberry/raspberry sauce with whipped cream and gouda and apple sausages. Yummmmy.... ;)
