It’s not you – there have been a lot of ads lately

Your humble host has had the good fortune to view a great deal of auto races, and I fully understand the point of broadcasting is to get eyeballs and show them advertisements.

Rossi wins The Indy 500 and the world keeps spinning‏

For those of us watching the Indy 500 on TV, that was quite an unforgettable moment. You know, the moment when the cameras panned to Alexander Rossi’s #98, and the realization that he’s going to try to make it all the way to the end without refueling while every other driver on the lead lap […]
