Although may be there’s some Strange Co Inky-dense
that I just learned Thars a U.S. Space Force Anthem? Stee-rike!
Yeah, I know, I know! I should be getting
excited now that it’s the over Ballyhooed Month of May. Especially since Boomp’
Day’s Back, Whoop de doo!
But since that riveting, edge ‘O seat The CW Docu-Drama
100 Days to Indy Ain’t available on my Spectrum Cable TV package here in
Bumfiddle’ Florence. I’ve had nothing to Rah-Rah, Rev Up my Engine. Buh-Buh-Believable!
As why did typing that make me think of Boogity-Boogity-Boogity, Eh?
And since I cannot find it on my Vice Pacific Cable
TV Feed, I won’t have to worry about trying to follow this riveting Soap Opera.
For which if we’re being brutally Honest, at best is a very poor Knockoff of
Formula One’s Drive to Survive! Which I prefer calling The Real Housewives of
F1! Be Still my Beating Heart, Oh Herr Guenther…
For which I still
wanna know How a Blind person’s supposed to do Streaming?
Thus why does it just feel like IndyCar is in Full
reactionary mode again? And How Far can 100 Dazes to Indy really push the
Needle? Even though I Hope that it far exceeds the other latest IndyCar Bricks!
Yuhs know, Cough-cough, How’s that Exclusive IndyCar
Video Game working out? Or the Brilliance of rebranding to Indy NXT and where’s
it’s Next Generation. Uhm, where, Oh where is that Linus Lundqvist, Eh? As Y’all
get the picture Me thinks?
And Have we seen Any results from the $3.3
million Boomp’ to IndyCar’s Advertising, Uhm Marketing Department and what it’s
being spent upon?
And having my life turned Upside down recently,
I simply have very little excitement these days. As the Fear of the Future is a
very taxing proposition Mentally, and Physically!
Alas, is it just Mwah? But why can’t those “fine
folks” at Comcast, owners of NBC and it’s remaining Networks, i.e.; USA
Network, CNBC and Arse-sumedly MSNBC…
Schedule the presumably taped delayed Broadcast
of the MotoGP race to Not Clash with the live IndyCar Broadcast? Since MotoGP’s
Jerez Grand Prix was airing from 11AM-12:30PM on CNBC, whilst the Indy Cars Barber
Motorsports Park Pre-race began at “High Noon” on Big NBC, with the Green flag
dropping near 12:30PM, Urgh!
Although who knows
if the USFL Pigskin Game preceding the IndyCar TV Broadcast will go into
Overtime? Hut-Hut Omaha! Since I’ll actually be listening to both my first Indy
NXT race and following IndyCar race via IndyCar Radio instead…
And then Thars’ the Azerbaijan Grand Prix
Formula 1 race airing live at Three Freakin’ 55AM Pacific! For which I’m
absolutely Not getting up for that! Even if there will most likely be Mayhem on
the Streets of Baku!
But at least, if ESPNews sticks to it’s “Advertised”
Broadcast time? Then I can catch the Encore Presentation replete with Ryan
Briscoe’s wife Nicole Cooing in my ear Her Sultry Mothers shoe polish interruptions
about How “We’ll” Return immediately, exactly where we left off, Honest! “Wink-wink,
Nudge Nudge…” beginning at 4PM Pacific, May be? Since who knows if some Canine Frisbee
Golf programme will be more important?
Getting back to what I guess is my Numero Uno
Pet Peeve with IndyCar right now, i.e.; 100 Days to Indy. In His typically well
thought out writing. For the Love of Indy’s Raymond Hando writes a very good
argument over there being More than the Month of May for Indy Cars. And if
IndyCar was truly trying to capture a whole new Audience, then why aren’t they
covering the whole season’s championship? Instead of the time Honoured
tradition of just Pumpin Up Ye Month ‘O May.
Yet in retrospect, ever since I was introduced
to the CART/PPG IndyCar World Series in the Summer of 1986, it’s Always been
Look I get it! Like Thy Leggy Juan’, aka
Katherine Legge just told Marshall Pruett on a recent The Week in IndyCar
Podcast. Mother Speedway’s the largest Single Day Sporting event Worldwide. And
if you‘ve never been to it, then you won’t get it.
And having attended seven Indianapolis 500’s,
beginning with my Hero winning His then Third Indy 500 in 2009, Not! I’ve
witnessed what All of the Pomp ‘N Circumstance is about. For which I have to
say it’s pretty amazing I never experienced
a Rainout, or Rain interruption…
And why is it if you say the year 1911, almost any
Open Wheel Racing Fan would instantly say Ray Harroun and the Marmon Wasp? Even
if it’s official name was the International 500 Mile Sweepstakes that year.
Yet how many, including myself are aware that
the 1911 AAA National Championship contested 21 races that season? Beginning on
February 22nd in Oakland, California. Where the Oakland Trophy race was held
upon the Portola Road Race Course.
Before finishing upon November 30th
in Savana, Georgia. Where the American Grand Prize was contested upon the 17.1
mile Effingham Road Course. with Ralph Mulford the disputed series Champion.
Since the years 1909-1915 and 1917-1919 AAA National Championships were retroactively
As Indy 500 Diehards will have heard the name
Ralph Mulford before, who Reputedly went to His Grave totally convince that He, instead
of Ray Harroun Had won that year’s Indianapolis 500…
And like Katherine Legge says. Some races just
have more mystique. Like Indianapolis, Daytona and Le Mans. With Legge saying No
Disrespect to Lime Rock. But there’s a reason we don’t talk about Lime rock for
Yet in just some three weeks-plus time, another
Indy 500 will be done and Dusted. And the Crowds will have gone Home. And
Nobody beside us Diehard IndyCar Fans will Hear or Say a Peep about Indy Cars
until brief mention being made the second weekend of September, when another
Series Champion is anointed…
OH Yeah, really
Hard to believe that today marks Twenty-nine years since Ayrton Senna’s Death…
