Moved here in 2006 from a 10 yr stint in the mountains of SW Virginia. Now a city boy - fortunately, it doesn't matter where I live - always something good in every place.

Danica makes the History books!
A great Indy race today. First time I've watched one beginning to end in awhile. Was eager to see if this knockout Danica Patrick could pull off a miracle and be the first woman to win an Indy 500. And she almost did it! The place was going nuts as she took the lead with 10 laps to go (first woman to ever lead an Indy 500 race), but due to running on mere fumes, had to dial down the boost in her car to finish the race and was passed in the closing laps to finally finish 4th. But what an accomplishment! My hat's off to her - this will make Indy car racing so much more fun to watch in the future. A comment from her when asked if she had made the point that female drivers could compete against men, Patrick quickly said, "I made a hell of a point for anybody, are you kidding me?"
