    How thrilling!

    We don't get much here but the usual.

    I didn't see the connection to "Today" and the race car driver. Hoy is Spanish for "Today"

    I didn't mean to offend, and never said he was. But the word "Hoy" translates from Spanish into English as "Today". Having spent decades in the American southwest, that's what came to my mind. Being completely ignorant of who Sir Hoy is, I saw no connection between the word and a picture of some fellow and a race car and a bicycle. I've learned a little today.

    That is why I first posted it in the track forum, but it was deemed irrelevant.

    So, it was moved to the hinterland.

    You should have had him in spandex instead of nomex to stay there.

    Here's how we roll in the hinterland.
