The Day After the Day After

WOW, what a race day we had!!! It started with a 6 hour live broadcast. I was at the track starting at 4:30am. We did 6 hours of straight, non-interrupted live TV, with no relief!!! After all the red carpet, drivers in the garage, owners checking on cars, it was time to start the race. An incredible running of the Indy 500 this year. The 4th hottest in the stands (90), the hottest on the track ever (125) and one of the closest finishes ever (.006 seconds)!!! All in all a great time was had by all and we had an excellent broadcast on the air. Behind the scenes was very stressful with some incidents but those are for another time....

After the race we were home and crashed. Too hot to eat but we did take the dog and go to the local ice cream parlor and had a nice little topper to the day, before I passed out a little after 9pm....

Yesterday I worked (no rest for the wicked) and then enjoyed a nice cook out at the parents house with just us and them...and it was nice to relax, talk, eat then go home and chill in the backyard playing a little ball then finishing off Supernatural (with the boy) and Prison Break (with the wife). Both shows ended very nicely and both are picked up for next year. So what started as a 4 day weekend for most of America was actually a 1 day weekend for my but ended on a great note!!! And another May is behind us! Yippee!!!!!!!!!!

Till Next Year Indy 500!!!!!!

Wow...sounds like you had an exciting weekend! One little known fact about me is that I was once an "umbrella girl" for a motorcycle racer in Daytona.

I got to watch the first five minutes of the race, then the wife dragged me off to another family function. But at least I got to see a crash!!
