  1. I got the live stream and boy am I glad I did. The racing was great and the big block feature was one of the best races I've ever seen. The track was simply amazing after the rain, passing was available everywhere on the track and moves made that were beyond belief. I could only imagine the drivers ear-to-ear grins under their helmets. Now if we could only get it to rain every Saturday about 3:00.............
  2. Although I had a great, full-covered grandstand seat for the Eastern States 200, it was lousy weather and my sciatica was killing me, I skipped the race and ate the ticket after trying to give it away. But to make myself feel better I thought "Hey, it'll be Opening Day before we know it."
  3. Brother's Trattoria in Beacon NY. Their veal marsala melts in your mouth. Like Capt. McCloskey said in 'The Godfather': "Try the veal, it's the best in the city."
  4. Football is a terribly flawed game, with a rule book as thick as the IRS Tax Code. Controlled by a clock, with far too many stoppages, there's only 21 minutes of actual play in the average game between whistles. If it weren't for gambling, if the concept and the activity of 'gambling' did not exist, the NFL as it is today would not survive. Baseball, on the other hand, is a perfect game. No clock, "It ain't over till it's over", if you're in a hurry you have no right to be at a baseball game. Simple rules that a T-baller can understand, and enjoy a major league game. Perfect dimensions of the playing fields that have withstood the test of time for over 180 years. Sixty feet six inches; not 61 feet, not 60 feet. Visit a baseball field, stand in the batters box while someone stands on the mound and see how close the pitcher looks. Then switch positions, and from the mound see how far home plate appears to be. 90 feet between the bases, making it difficult to beat out an infield single but allowing a speedster the ability to score from first on a well-hit ball. And the combination of the two distances between the mound and home plate and between the bases allows for the rare but thrilling occurrence to steal home. NFL plays on the same size field that Pop Warner little league football plays on, just think about that. Baseball stadiums themselves, past and present, are held in high reverence: The Polo Grounds, Wrigley Field, Fenway, Dodger Stadium, Ebbets Field, Yankee Stadium. No one ever says "Remember how great Shea Stadium was when the Jets played there." Never. Sitting in the right-field stands, sun at your back, close enough to the fielder that you can talk to him between innings. Baseball is chess; football is checkers.
  5. LOL!! I think it's the Syracuse (and ES 200) car's bumber, no?
  6. Notice that they passed by "The Doctor" and choose Jeff. Hmmmmm.........
  7. Some purists are saying it wasn't really a sprint car because it had a 2-speed gearbox instead of an in-and-out. Sour grapes, I think.

  9. For using the n-word. Watch his sponsors pull support., as they should. dummy https://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/nascar-auto-racing/article241971496.html
  10. Nice guy. He also has a bright roomy store under the OCFS grandstand during the season.
  11. Tim McCreadie was placed first ahead of Stew Friesen during the last laps one Eastern States 200 on a very obvious bad call. The whole place knew it, and even after video review, they didn't right the wrong. This is the infamous "Sitting Bull" incident by Stewie. Tim won, when he exited his car he had a knowing smirk on his face and shrugged his shoulders as if to say "Oh well" I was a big fan of Tim's up till then, but not after that race.
  12. Want to see racing sooner than later? STAY THE HELL HOME
