26. This is the rudest and most determinedly offensive site I frequent regarding this topic.

 

It seems that screwing up other people's enjoyment has become part of what it means to be a Democrat.

I couldn't care less about this interminable left turn and frankly didn't even realize it was run today, but simple courtesy is far too much to ask of DU.

It would seem to me that if one wanted to DVR the "biggest spectacle in motor racing", and the biggest and most famous sporting event of this holiday weekend, and watch it later without seeing a spoiler, then one should not watch the news, or surf the 'net. I wouldn't. But that's just me.

Is the whole internet supposed to shut down b/c a few people want to watch it later?

35. You don't have to wait at all, but you should refrain from posting the result in the subject line,

 

so that other people, the one's that are supposed to be your political friends and allies, can avoid it.

It's simple courtesy.

9. I was pulling for Almendinger.

 

How cool would it have been to see a NASCAR guy win in his first drive at Indy?

I hate when they end Indy races under yellow. I wish they'd go to a Green-White-Checker like NASCAR does.

Hope you're doing well!

11. A little diversion in honor of AJ Foyt.

From the Geologic podcast, hosted by musician and skeptic George Hrab. From a podcast segment George calls "Rupert McClanahan's Indestructable Bastards" he covers Foyt's "brushes with the great beyond".

It's an absolutely amazing account of the character of this icon of auto racing.

Here's the segment (5+ minute audio):
https://docs.google.com/open?id=0ByrG6sAGrpWHbXJNYklPRHRLbVU

And forgive Hrab for his cheesy Scottish accent.

I hope you enjoy this. I did.

AJ Foyt, truly an indestructible bastard.

on edit: and congrats to Tony!

Had the race not gone yellow flag, any of the top 4 or 5 could have won IMO.

13. Tony was running strong all day though

He was determined and had a good car but yes any one of the top 5 could have won if not for the yellow.

14. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

And I mean that sincerely.

Tony is well and truly a decent, nice guy. I've met him and he is a very genuine sort with an infectious smile.

Well done, Tony. You deserve it.


Of course, the "Andretti Curse" lives on.

25. what an exciting race. only yellows at the beginning and the end.

Kannan deserves it. Even though I was rooting for a break in the Andretti curse (and Marco was in the race - almost the entire time - right up to the end.)

Well done, Tony Kanaan. A very well deserved win.

30. Long time Andretti fan...

 

DVRed the race, fast forwarded through the commercials, only to watch it end under caution. What a fucking letdown! Nobody "won" this race. Kanaan got a jump on the final restart and then it was a 2 lap slow parade. There should be a law that no race, regardless of what kind, should ever end under a caution. Consider Michael Andretti's many, many heartbreaks at Indy, and he was never "lucky" enough to "win" under caution. I consider "winning" under caution, not winning at all.
