  24. Dwindy again...

    I sign in, everything works as it should, I switch back to this site and it says to "Sign In" again... But under these circumstances I can post as "Anonymous"...

    Ain't it great?

  25. thanks all, I made sure to not check until fter the Indycar race had aired here on TSN2, lol

    Dwindy: that's the same issue I (still) have whenever I try to sign in using Internet works fine on my backup browser however (Opera) :/

  26. I DID pick Ed Carpenter to win the Indy race and he WON--that should count for something!! :P j/k!! ;)
