Could the Nationals Sweep and Does Anyone Care?

Game 2 of the World Series was close throughout, as the teams were tied at 2 runs apiece heading into the seventh inning, but that doesn’t necessarily mean viewers tuned in.  Each team scored two runs in the first inning, but there was nothing more until the seventh, as Justin Verlander and Stephen Strasburg put […]

‘Turbo’: A sorta-critic’s review

Full Disclosure: The writer was a movie critic for the Huntington News, the campus newspaper of Northeastern University, during the early years of his college life. "Turbo," Dreamworks' latest offering that centers around a garden snail's dream of victory at the Indianapolis 500, isn't a champion. As pointed out already by folks far better at […]

Random thoughts and outbursts

The first half of the IZOD IndyCar Series season was littered with upsets from the smaller teams in the paddock – Takuma Sato and A.J. Foyt Racing at Long Beach, Tony Kanaan and KV Racing at the Indianapolis 500, and Mike Conway (Dale Coyne Racing) and Simon Pagenaud (Schmidt-Hamilton Motorsports) at Detroit. But as the […]

On to “Old Milwaukee”

I was meaning to do this last night, but I had some obligations to take care of. Thus, I'll keep my thoughts on last weekend's race at Texas Motor Speedway relatively brief since we're already just two days away from the Milwaukee IndyFest. I think IndyCar went a step too far with the downforce removal, […]

Thoughts from Detroit

Right from the beginning, we should have known that this was going to be a strange weekend after the Indianapolis 500 for the IZOD IndyCar Series. Friday's lone practice session before the Chevrolet Indy Dual in Detroit had already featured two red flags in its opening minutes (it would eventually have SIX of them altogether) […]

From the ‘500’ to the Motor City

So, now it begins. The third season. The battle for the championship. Gripes about how IndyCar should add a green-white-checkered rule aside, the Indianapolis 500 was everything we could have hoped for and more: The fastest '500' ever, the most lead changes ever, and one of its most popular champions ever in Tony Kanaan, who […]

It’s been a while…Hasn’t it?

Today is race morning in Indianapolis. To the left of me, the sun is rising, trying to rise above the cloud cover. Rain may be involved in the forecast, but hopefully that will hold off until after we're done here today at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. As you've probably surmised, I'd been rather busy lately […]
