    ReplyDelete
  19. Greetings all. 1-1 first period- Go USA!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. jon-

    are you sure Todd's there? I figured he'd be in Vancouver celebrating the 4-man bobsled gold medal.

    And speaking of the Olympics, I heard a NASCAR reference yesterday- and it wasn't during the bobsled competition. It was during women's cross-country skiing.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Dang SB - you must be ahead of us here on W. Coast it is still 0-0 according to my tv!

    Good game though...

    ReplyDelete
  22. Kristen, it's TAPED on the West Coast.

    SB, Todd's always there in spirit, as he popularized start and parking!

    ReplyDelete
  23. But we cant be that far behind Jon...SB what time in the game is it for you?


    Dang Bobby out...

    Kurt very unhappy with his car they are going to make a billion adjustments...

    ReplyDelete
  25. awww too bad we dont have to look at that hideous KK car anymore...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Caution came out at just the right time for several drivers.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  28. looks like 1:45 in the 1st I think. The scoreboard on my tv is extremely small. Ok, so the 0 looks like a 1.

    Game is live in all time zones.

    ReplyDelete
  29. LMAO SB...you crack me up!!! I thought we had it live.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Happy left the pits in the same position he came in: 17th. Me thinks his car is getting better as the race goes on.

    ReplyDelete

    Jon you are *hoping* his car gets better!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. what the heck was that caution for?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. At least there arent potholes...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Good save by Kurt...car is nasty!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Did anyone catch FOX News Sunday this morning? Dale Jr. was their power player of the week. I didn't get to see the piece b/c I was on my way out the door.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Jamie so should have 'McFlurry' on the side this week given his sponsor and last name, lol

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  59. We gotta be careful about where we are staying this time around - Vallejo very dangerous these days - beatings, shootings etc huge rash of violence lately.

    ReplyDelete
  60. It looks like we will be driving down so that opens up me options

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yea, having a car will help a lot! Looks like we have Jon and Tez trying to come too.

    ReplyDelete
  62. How long did Jr stay in the top ten?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  70. hey, hey. I saw our list o Sonomers. Cool!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hey Jon, how was the Ramada last year? Would you go back?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Hey RA6AN! As far as the Ramada, I liked the proximity to the freeway, but I'm looking elsewhere, possibly Napa.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Crosby missed a great chance there.

    ReplyDelete
  74. We were kind of looking in that area for Bloggers' Central.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I stayed at the Fairfield Inn when I went in '06.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Looks like I should have traded Burton for Kenseth this week.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Arg need to research the list for Somona

    Picture a car with a rose on the hood, and the vines - with thorns - running down the side spelling the word "thorn"

    ReplyDelete
  78. Who is Katie chewing on this week? Take that duck away from her!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I was hoping she'd have been chewing on either Gordon or Johnson!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Yee, make sure it says "I love you" on the spoiler.

    ReplyDelete
  81. #1 KU #2 Kentucky lost too. If you read what the writers wrote, KU should still be #1. Wednesday K St is at KU and KU has won 58 games in a row at home. It's going to be a great game to watch. It's Sr night so were going to the game.

    ReplyDelete
  82. tie game!!!!!! This is brilliant! :D

    ReplyDelete
  83. Cool car Mizz Mouse!

    There are a few hotels right off the freeway near 6 flags that are fairly cheap.

    ReplyDelete
  84. You'll still be #1 I bet...KU v. KSt is always a great game. Have fun!!


    Woot! USA Scores!

    ReplyDelete
  85. BTW, K, I'm coming to your house for dinner!

    ReplyDelete
  86. RA6GAN- actually, she and Allie have been fighting over the duck this week(and we did have a piece of duck jerky right before the race).

    She's been working on the Jimmie bear, but she fears that it may take more voodoo to stop them than one little beagle can handle. At this point(for whatever reason known only to her), she considers Jeffie irrelevant.

    ReplyDelete
  87. We need a caution to keep the Jeff and JJ Show in check...

    ReplyDelete
  88. Is Jr the ONLY driver out there with a bad setup?

    ReplyDelete
  89. Come on over Ragan! Hubby is putting the tenderloin in around 4p! LOL

    I forgot to get the Digger for you in Fontana SB, sorry! PHX!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Nope I have been informed it is I "heart" you
    . and some sort of eat my petals thang

    ReplyDelete
  91. Olympic hockey has much better scriptwriters than NASCAR.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Their announcers are also oh, about 20x better than Fox doofs.

    ReplyDelete
  93. You speak the truth Gene...OT baby!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Is there a post for the Sonoma adventure yet? I looked but I am challenged sometimes

    ReplyDelete
  95. Can we make a trade--Fox's doofs to NBC for NBC's talent?

    ReplyDelete
  96. Yee, it was posted 2/18 on the Lugnut page

    ReplyDelete
  97. Wow! You mean those cars don't have a speedometer? I'm sure the 8 people watching their first race are stunned to hear that.

    Thanks for telling us other 8 million about it... again....for the millionth time!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Caution out--HUGE break for every driver not named Jeff Gordon or Jimmie Johnson!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Maybe the hockey announcer will explain how that blue line thingy works... in the middle of OT.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Oh Gene I hear you

  108. Congrats to O'Canada...they had a lot more pride to lose than we did in this one. Great game!

    How were the ribs Gene?

    ReplyDelete
  109. Now i know why dad doesn't watch the races. I've got JJ in on my team. It's not my team so, picking Jr doesn't hurt me. I will let you know whats going on.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Gene, indeed. And congratulations to Team Canada for winning the Gold in hockey.

    ReplyDelete
  111. The ribs were fantastic, plenty leftover. Kind of breezy outside but temp in the low 60s. Not too cool to fire up the Bunsen 2000. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  112. LOL Kaylee - I have Edwards so I am not winning either way! Please let me know whats up at your house and say hi to everyone for me


    You were right Ragan!

    ReplyDelete
  120. It IS going to be a LONG season.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Yup, Junebug not shining example of HMS at moment.
