Yes, we know the Americans love this race…Oh wait, they used to love this race. It used to be #1 in the US as the most watched sport at any one time, now it is barely hanging on to the top 10. Nascar’s Dayton 500 took that over, and slowly the F1 racing is making its way in. Anyways…
The race has been exciting, a little upsetting, and at the same time, it proved points I made on the Ubuntu marketing list a couple months back that someone checked me on and said I had no clue what I was talking about. Well, the Linux car crashed, that sucks because I have always liked the driver Roberto Moreno. The good thing though, never once did they mention Linux on TV, so there was no “and Linux crashes.” I did see the penguin for all of 2 seconds just under the air intake scoop though, so there are a bunch of screaming kids asking their parents to take them to see “Happy Feet” now 🙂
Rain just moved in and they threw the red flag, hopefully they will get it going because I would really like to see either an Andretti win it or I would like to see Danica. Danica came from now where, back in like 20th place and then all of a sudden she was in third.
So, to Bob, Roberto, and Tom, sorry it ended this way, maybe next year you can do it right and get greater support. Truthfully, hopefully, you won’t go with the Indy 500 though, the race sucks, nobody is watching anymore. Right now the Tennis matches are on TV, the French Open, and they are much more interesting. Time to rethink and rebuild!
