Today was the running of the Indy 500. It was almost 90 degrees making it about a bazillion degrees at the track.
I stayed home and didn't watch the news or the internet or listen to the radio. The race is blacked out for a 60 mile area from Indianapolis. You cannot watch the race live unless you drive to Terre Haute or Fort Wayne. So I just shut off the TV, radio, and the internet for the day. I watched the replay that night and pretended it was live. It was an exciting race, with a terrible crash on the final lap involving Mike Conway, who was left with a broken leg and veterbrae. He's lucky to be alive. Watch the video here.
Dario Franchitti won his second Indy 500. He is married to actress Ashley Judd. Many folks were saying that she was playing to the cameras. Give me a break. It's not like she brought her own film crew. Her husband just won the Indy 500! I do think her star is fading a bit though. My 14 year-old niece had never heard of her....ouch!
I just wish it would have rained again. Ooh la la.
