Your It’s Not The Charlotte 600 Because It’s Not Porn Sunday Night Open Thread

This is one of the rare Sundays I get to enjoy fully.  Tomorrow is Memorial Day,  hence no work and no going to bed early.

Will I spend the time fruitfully?

Well, I’m watching NASCAR, so you be the judge. As I mentioned last year,  today is the GREATEST DAY IN MOTORSPORTS with the Monaco Grand Prix, the Indianapolis 500, and the Coca Cola 600 all on the same day.

Earlier this morning, Daniel Ricciardo of Australia,  who broke the track record in obtaining the pole position for this race, easily won for the first time in Monaco.  Please note that I wrote this on Saturday.  Let’s see if I was right… I was.

Although he experienced power problems midway through the race,  Daniel was able to hold off the field, lead every lap, and actually extend his lead at the end to win by over six seconds.

I’m happy for him because he’s one of the few good dudes in Formula 1. And considering the number of assholes that abound in that series,  that’s saying something.

In the second race,  it was much more difficult to predict ahead of time who would win. There is a lot more passing and crazy shit happens. Ed Carpenter got the pole position while Danica Patrick qualified 7th.

In the end, Will Power got the win.  That’s 2 for 2 for Australia,  btw.

As for the NASCAR race,  there are two drivers that are red-hot going in: Kyle Busch,  my favourite driver,  has three wins in the season and leads the point standings.

Kevin Harvick,  however,  is even hotter. He has 5 (FIVE!) wins on the season (out of 12 races to date,  mind you) and just won the $1 million All- Star race at Charlotte last weekend.

He’s your favorite.

So,  sit back,  crank up the grill,  throw some dogs and burgers on there,  and open up some beers or sodas.  It’s that kind of day and that’s an excellent way to enjoy it.

Oh,  and comment here,  of course.

We’re almost ready to back up Senor’s computer. I figure it should be all done at this rate by June. Of 2022.

theeWeeBabySeamus

You poor poor bastard.
I gotta do that soon.

Senor Weaselo

I waited too long as I believe my computer can no longer RAM IT! like it once did.

I’ll have to deactivate and reactivate Finale when I get a new laptop, that’s what’ll annoy me most.

I randomly met the Avett’s bassist not too long ago in a random North Carolina store.
Nice guy.

That’s a pretty nice effect. It’s a warp on a still frame; not really difficult to do but it was genius to think it up.

So I just had to sit through Eight Crazy Nights. I have no idea why but the couch was really comfy and my friend gave me a very fuzzy pillow to stroke (not a euphemism). She probably got the best of it as she conked out midway through.

They know you’re watching them and they start showing off if you hoot and holler. I saw it many times, out in the middle of the North Atlantic. They were there because they wanted to be there.

So…… this game just perpetuates the idea that lebron’s biggest shortcoming is his habit of seeming to play down to his competition?

I won’t pretend to closely follow the NBA, I try and try, it just doesn’t click.

But for fucks sake, where was this guy earlier in the series?

I’m suddenly finding my father is stuck in the 1990s when it comes to prices.

“Hey Dad, I found a sump pump for $300.” “I can find one for just over a hundred.”
“I found a hotel room in Chicago for Saturday night for $250.” “Did you search everywhere?”
“I can buy the keys to the Fountain of Youth for $1,000.” “I can find you a better deal.”

I played horsehoes at a friend’s house last night so naturally I had a pretty good hangover most of the day and it’s a rainy, cloud, cold-ass day here in CT so sitting around watching pretty cars go round and round and occasionally bounce into and off things sounds like a pretty good way to spend the evening.

better ‘n’ golf

If I need to choose between seeing Infinity War, Solo, or nothing tonight, what does the kommentariat recommend?

yeah right

Cubs Giants and game 7 Cleveland Boston. I’ve seen neither movie so I’m staying sports centric.

Horatio Cornblower

My daughter speaks highly of Infinity War, if that helps.

Infinity War following by Deadpool 2.

To be fair, no one seems to know if Solo is any good because most people haven’t bothered with it
