Thanks John - very nice thread Connie
I was asked by a fellow FReeper to try here to get from 1 to 3 Yahoo Fantasy Baseball league teams. The league name is Tea Party Patriots. We are scheduled for a live draft on Friday March 23rd at 8pm. League scoring is head to head. If interested contact me on FReep Mail.
Uh-oh. Did I miss the rapture?
If I understand the situation correctly Norm spilled a beer in his driveway and polluted a waterway and wants to clean it up before Jerri Brown taxes him for it...
Dannyca lining up behind Morgan Shepherd in 30th.
Looks like she found it’s more difficult when you can’t hold the gas down all way around the track, LOL.
Sweet, been to PIR several times, it’s a beautiful setting.
We’ll watch for ya on tv.
Don’t count Old Men out as MM Qs First...
Smart move trying for the Redneck vote.
However, Newt is going to be tough being a Georgia guy.
I'll take any of them just to get rid of the crap in there now.
Would it be great if Mark Martin could win one more!!!
look for the bald guy hold’n up some Sheriff Joe pink chonies.....lol
Gotta love it!
Joe came here to Indianapolis last fall and did a fund raiser for Repub party, he’s totally awesome.
I think both get too much recognition that is not deserved. Look at "so and so". True, they didn't perform very well. And there are tons of other athletes doing better. But let's talk about Patrick/Woods.
I have had my fill on the talking heads.
What do you think, am I wrong?
Danica is there to sell tickets in the stands. That is all!
Saw that and had to roll, last niece got married this afternoon.
When TW was in his prime, he was the dominant player of his generation. Nobody else was even close. The tournaments he played in averaged twice the tv ratings of those he didn’t play. So he earned the hype via his talent and ability.
Now people pay attention to see if he can come back from his ethical shipwreck and physical deterioration.
Danica won one race in Indycars because her engineer made a good call on fuel strategy and everything worked out.
So there’s a pretty big difference in my view.
Cold and windy here today. This morning it was 10F and 30-40 MPH wind. So cold that at the Frozen Dead Guy Days Festival they postoponed the race sliding caskets across the ice at Barker Reservoir and also the polar bear plunge at the same reservoir.
Good to see MM get the pole. I almost picked him for this race.
It was a glorious day here in Benderville today but it started off with a couple of glitches. First I didn’t notice the ice on my windshield and it ate a new pair of wiper blades. Then I pulled up to the mail box and the drivers window was frozen in the channel it destroyed the drive for the electric window. I know a guy who will fix it while I drive his Ridgeline...
One of Matt Kenseth's stops in Los Angeles was to the famous Pink's Hot Dogs, where he helped in the kitchen. (Auto Club Speedway)

|Did Not Qualify|
I did not get to see most of qualifying. Did not see Danica on the list. Will this be an estrogen-free race?
That is strange? Was she hurt last weekend and is sitting this one out?
Danica’s running full time in the Nationwide and a limited Sprint Cup Schedule. Remaining Sprint Cup races:
Darlington on May 12th, Bristol Motor Speedway August 25th, Atlanta Motor Speedway on September 2nd, Chicagoland Speedway on September 16th, Dover International Speedway September 30th, Texas Motor Speedway November 4th and the penultimate race of 2012 at Phoenix International Raceway on November 11th.
If she runs well in the Nationwide perhaps she’ll get a couple more Sprint Cup races.
Gonna smoke-cook 10 pds of Pork Ribs on the Traeger today. First time for ribs on the Traeger. You might set out an extra plate in case things go awry.
Forecast to be 86 degrees in Phoenix today. Hot!
In formula 1, where there typically is a huge difference in performance between different teams, because everybody has different chassis and engines, the drivers are often judged by how they perform over a season compared to their teammate in essentially identical equipment.
I think Danica is going to find out that being teamed with Cole Whitt at JRM isn’t going to make her look too good.
I guess I should pay more attention to Nascar. Thick fog here this morning but it will be gone by 10 when Church starts.
Danica is only running 10 Cup races, pHoenix ain’t one of them, but is running a full Nationwide schedule.
She did not do very well in the Nationwide race.
OooPs. Running late Ping to the race track on FoX now and out the door beer run to boot :-]
Heh. Tide’s got a new commercial.
From the last race, "A new use for Tide, cleaning the track".
I was impressed that the track had that much Tide on hand. Just how much laundry do they do at that track?
I’m not sure, but I bet there was a lot of soiled underwear at that race!
New, politically correct statement from Good Year is a
"Sudden Air Loss". Jgess.
Johnsons car is so much faster then the others.
Good thing they had it in the economy-sized boxes instead of individually wrapped packages.
They must be taking lessons from ‘Big Sis’: Man Made Disasters...
I think they use it to scrub the garage floors.
It works great, probably get it for free from P&G
Curious minds want to know:
“Track workers put out the fire, then turned to laundry detergent to clean up the mess because, Chitwood said, the detergent is typically used to wash the track surface. The track was watered, soaped, watered again, then a street bond was added.”
I found out that they use it to wash the track. Guess I need to study up on the fine points of track maintenance.
Taking me a while to find it on Comcast. That’s nothing new for me here in Pgh...sigh. Probably another loose cable. Friday I couldn’t get most of the low or very high channels.
No, but I think her ego took a good hit yesterday, she wouldn't talk to anybody after the race.
This ones on network - Fox. You can pop up your rabbit ears and get a better 1080P HD pic over the air than cable offers.
