    For sure man!

    I haven't been this thrilled about the prospects of my cubbies in a few years now. Lots of great stories developing around the league.

    Step 1:
    -Locate cubs game and time

    Step 2:
    -Clear schedule for the above found game

    Step 3:
    -Make a nice turkey sammich

    Step 4:
    -Enjoy innings 1,2, possibly 3

    Step 5:
    -Doze off for innings 4,5,6

    Step 6:
    -Wake up and lazily enjoy innings 7, 8, 9

    Step 7:
    -Schedule next baseball nap, typically the following day.

    Yeah opening day was pretty good, I was rooting for Tony Kanaan, but he was the victim of some bad luck. Scott Dixon winning is OK. I'm just glad the open wheelers are unified, unfortunately the wrong side won but it's time to move on.

    Oh hold it, what sport are you talking about?

    I didn't realize IRL started so late, guess I'm too much of a stock car fan. I like IRL but don't follow it that closely.

    Oh yeah back on topic, Play Ball

    Not quite how I meant it. I'm finding that baseball is a leading cause of narcolepsy. I feel immensely bored at the prospect of having to watch part of a game.

    That was a travesty of a race. Total disparity between the haves and have nots. I am worried about the future of American open wheel racing.

    Having been to both IRL and Nascar races, IRL could do a lot more to for their sport. The racing can be good at times but it could be better if the field was move even.

    Agreed, but still, having 4 cars on the lead lap at the end of the race. That was just wrong.

    Yeah, they need to even the field and do more to allow the new teams to test, etc. The thrill of watching two cars inches apart at 200 mph has to be seen to be believed. Also, an IRL race can be viewed in two hours start to finish. Nascar at Martinsville takes three times as long and has no real drama.

    Oh, and thank you for letting me derail your thread.

    Back to smoking in the dugout and taking steriod talk now.

    I wonder if restrictor plates would have the same effect for open wheel cars as it does for the stock cars. Seeing a 20 car pack would be awesome, I would probably be on my feet the entire race.

    As for Martinsville, I becoming a fan of it more and more each year, yes it is bit long but I think it allows for more drama during the race. I onced tried to watch "24 hours of Le Mans", I found it very difficult.

    Open wheel cars do not run well nose to tail. Not sure restrictor plates is the answer. Right now the problem is that halfof the teams have years of notes of how to set their cars up for each track and the other half is playing a guessing game.

    Secondly, do to the paucity of spares and chassis right now, the new teams are playing it very conservative. They just want to have a rolling car to load up at the end of the day.

    The unification happened way too late for this year to go off smoothly. Next year will hopefully be different.

    Go Rangers.
