go the ice racing....I mean motor hockey....no wait, that's not right either.
I assume you will be leading the Canadian cheering section today?Any word yet if your job is being renewed?
of course I will be....and nothing yet, but I would have to assume they will given the amount of work my boss is going to get this year, he'll need help.
excellent! Melissa and I have a few hotel options ready to go...
sweet! Are they going to be the same ones as last year or you scouting around in case they is a better deal out there someplace?
Hey Tez & Kristen! And GO TEAM USA!!
Hey Jon and Gene!USA USA USA! GREEN GREEN GREEN!!
sorry, I didn't catch that...AUS? Australia aren't playing today, guys ;)
I was about to blame Robby Gordon for the caution, but come to find out it wasn't him that started it.
I bet Australia would be good at hockey! LOL
There is that new pit road rule I told ya all about...Come on Kurt - lead!
field hockey, yes...that's why we've won the Summer Games gold a few times, lol
Hi all. Trying to chat in a few different places.
Repeat of yesterday?Outside is fastest,And no one can catch whom ever is out front?
No worries Gene - I am trying to do chores and cook too! Although hubby is making salt crusted beef tenderloin tonight! YUM!!!
KLV...I've heard of a recipe to make a salt crusted steak in a paper bag in the oven. Is your hub's similar?
Aric Almirola drew the short stick today in the Todd Bodine Meeting Room!
It is a dough crust made mostly with salt then you cut it away to serve. Heard of your way too...
Greetings all. 1-1 first period- Go USA!!!
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.
Dang SB - you must be ahead of us here on W. Coast it is still 0-0 according to my tv!Good game though...
GOAL! 1-0 CANADA!!!!!!!!!!
Kristen, it's TAPED on the West Coast.SB, Todd's always there in spirit, as he popularized start and parking!
Yep, now 1 -nil Canada...
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...
Kristen, Kurt's going backwards. The Roush cars are looking strong. I think we're an hour behind.
awww too bad we dont have to look at that hideous KK car anymore...
Caution came out at just the right time for several drivers.
Yea, I am listening to his in car radio - they are tight in and loose the rest of the corner cant get the rear end hooked up...they have plan in place to fix!
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.
LMAO SB...you crack me up!!! I thought we had it live.
1-0 end of the first
Happy left the pits in the same position he came in: 17th. Me thinks his car is getting better as the race goes on.
yup, thats what I got Tez...Jon you are *hoping* his car gets better!!
what the heck was that caution for?
green flag with the caution lights still going....looks like the track guys are watching the hockey instead of doing their job, lol
At least there arent potholes...
Good save by Kurt...car is nasty!
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.
Jamie so should have 'McFlurry' on the side this week given his sponsor and last name, lol
I think the "M" on Cupcakes name is like the McDonalds "M" above the driver...
Do a little sabotage last week, Kristen?????
Naw...we lost a lug on the #2 car too! =(Dang it!!! Come on USA!!!!!
Give that beagle a Maple Leaf to chew on!
Jamie saying his car was too loose....took out 3 decent cars :(
Dang it!! Kurt had no where to go and boy is he cussing up a storm on the radio...sounds like the splitter is toast
2-1, this is a cracking game!
I was gone--what happened?
OUCH! There goes my fantasy team!
And I think Happy's car is a 17th place car at best.
GO TEAM USA!!!
Happy in the top 15 now!
So much for saying that the #29 is a 17th place car at best, lol
Better late than neverI have another participant for Sonoma
I've got Edwards as my "A" driver...I think Burton and Rootie Tootie and AJ? or Speed, cant remember...Caution lights are screwed up again...STUPID!!
Damn caution lights came on again!
Hi Yee! Who?!?! Miss "Thorn" Mouse
That gives a whole new meaning to "phantom" cautions.
Pretty embarrassing that in 3 races there are 2 probs with track maintenance
Jeff G goes for a slide in the pits, lol
She has no interst in joining us One of my best friends
2-1 at the end of the second.
Not great for Kurt here- but there are alot of laps left
Time for BBQ Ribs! Be back later.
Based on Kurt's radio - Kurt is done trying so Jr is my only hope today!Yum Gene...is it warm enough by you to BBQ?Cool Yee. Having hard time finding smoking rooms!
Actually, I have Kyle as my A driver, so not all bad.
Kurt is my backup A driver
arg must have if the weather is nippy like it was last yearI know the lower end motels will have a few smoking rooms ( the price we pay)
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.
It looks like we will be driving down so that opens up me options
Yea, having a car will help a lot! Looks like we have Jon and Tez trying to come too.
Hi Aunt Kristen!!
LOL!! Hey Kaylee!!
or is it Peanut or Mark?!?!!
How long did Jr stay in the top ten?
He is 10th now...hanging on by a nail
Its Kaylee, Peanut is with grandma and i don't know where dad is.
Are you heading back to school tonight Kaylee? How did KU do?
Tez.. really? nice!Not long enough it seems.Did I tell you about Mizz mouses design for "Thorn's" car?
I didn't wake up until 3:30. Too many beers from someone who doesn't drink.
KU lost by 8, i a will leave in the morning.
WHat is Mizz Mouse's design?! LOLBummer re: KU at least ARizona finally won a game against Stanford. Now we need USA hockey to beat Canada!!
howdy RA6AN :)
hey, hey. I saw our list o Sonomers. Cool!
Hey Jon, how was the Ramada last year? Would you go back?
Hey RA6AN! As far as the Ramada, I liked the proximity to the freeway, but I'm looking elsewhere, possibly Napa.
Crosby missed a great chance there.
We were kind of looking in that area for Bloggers' Central.
I stayed at the Fairfield Inn when I went in '06.
Looks like I should have traded Burton for Kenseth this week.
Arg need to research the list for SomonaPicture a car with a rose on the hood, and the vines - with thorns - running down the side spelling the word "thorn"
Who is Katie chewing on this week? Take that duck away from her!
I was hoping she'd have been chewing on either Gordon or Johnson!
Yee, make sure it says "I love you" on the spoiler.
#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.
TIED AT 2!
tie game!!!!!! This is brilliant! :D
Cool car Mizz Mouse!There are a few hotels right off the freeway near 6 flags that are fairly cheap.
You'll still be #1 I bet...KU v. KSt is always a great game. Have fun!!Woot! USA Scores!
BTW, K, I'm coming to your house for dinner!
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.
We need a caution to keep the Jeff and JJ Show in check...
Is Jr the ONLY driver out there with a bad setup?
Come on over Ragan! Hubby is putting the tenderloin in around 4p! LOLI forgot to get the Digger for you in Fontana SB, sorry! PHX!
Nope I have been informed it is I "heart" you. and some sort of eat my petals thang
Sounds great, Yee.
Olympic hockey has much better scriptwriters than NASCAR.
Their announcers are also oh, about 20x better than Fox doofs.
You speak the truth Gene...OT baby!
Is there a post for the Sonoma adventure yet? I looked but I am challenged sometimes
Can we make a trade--Fox's doofs to NBC for NBC's talent?
Yee, it was posted 2/18 on the Lugnut page
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!
Caution out--HUGE break for every driver not named Jeff Gordon or Jimmie Johnson!
Maybe the hockey announcer will explain how that blue line thingy works... in the middle of OT.
Oh Gene I hear youjon I like that part
Bowyer didn't pit.
RA6AN it appears i am challengedWould you mind sending me a link?Here we go
21 cars now on lead lap... I could swear there were only 11 forty minutes ago.
Damn, Kid! Not Logano.
A bunch of lap down cars got the wavearound
yeah I'm with you Tez
betcha by the time they come back from commercial, we'll have missed the pass for the lead, or a caution flag
that was a fantastic game....should put that in your GBU, jon :D
Jon...another dumb rule. Lucky dog is bad enough... now EVERY one gets a lucky dog! Sort of like Little League.
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?
ta Yee, lol
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.
Gene, indeed. And congratulations to Team Canada for winning the Gold in hockey.
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
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 meYou were right Ragan!
I may have to put Kid Joey in the Good category!
I just got to hug baby marcus (Yes a belly was in the way he is not here yet)she stopped by for a minuteMarc's BDay would be Tuesday -- Come here baby boy!
Nice race for me to pick Busch as my A driver.... Kurt Busch!C'mon, Burton and Bowyer!
Where is our debris?
White flag on the HMS show at Vegas...
It is a V not a W get Travis' name right
It may be a loooooong season!
Jr is opening another Whiskey River so you know where his head, beside the obvious place.
Was it my imagination, or was Fontana less of a snoozer than this week?
It IS going to be a LONG season.
Yup, Junebug not shining example of HMS at moment. CongRATS again to JJ! Off to eat...nice chatting today guys.
RA6AN, Fontana was one of the better races in awhile.
aye Gene lonngg
Off to do my GBU. Later everyone!
I hate to be annoying or to repeat meself, can someone send me a link for the Sonoma post?
The new Whisky River is down here in Jacksonville. I may have to go to the opening. Want me to tell him anything? Maybe Hanner should go?
Yee....I saw it about a page up from here.
Thanks i will look again
Apparently I am bloody daftCan someone send me the linky for the Sonoma adventure I canna find it. :(
