    2018 Indianapolis 500

    I was one of those hustling out of the paddock penthouse when that flashed on the screen. Our friends from Bloomington had already left after hearing the earlier weather reports. We jogged back to the car which was parked in a prime spot across from the main gate, got out of the lot, and then got stuck on 16th street. Finally got moving, drove over to Irvington to drop our friend off and headed back to Hamilton County. We dodged tornadoes all evening, and saw a transformer blow around I-70and Shadeland. It was crazy! But during the rain delays, we went underneath the stands and followed everyone else who were grabbing chairs and hanging out under the stands. That was probably the most fun I’ve had spontaneously at the race, lol.

    Thanks, Mile! I love the race. Not sure what number this one will be, but hoping for good weather, and a safe race. I always spend the last warmup lap praying for a safe Lap 1. I was at the race when Stan Fox had a horrific crash in Turn 1, and that was not an enjoyable race.

    I love the 500! Attend every year with my stepmom and various friends. Penthouse Paddock, across from the first pit north of Gasoline Alley. Love the addition of elevators to those seats! Lol Looking forward to Danica doing well, and would love to see her, Ed Carpenter or Helio win. Or Marco. Or Graham Rahal. Or anyone, They’re all great. Will miss The Mayor of Hinchtown!

    I don’t know where I read or heard this, but in 1992, Scott Goodyear was bumped from the field and the part-time driver of the team relinquished his seat/car to Goodyear. That’s the year Goodyear came in close second to Little Al. https://www.thestar.com/autos/2016/05/07/scott-goodyear-remembers-indy-92.html

    Am I remembering correctly that he mentioned he was getting married? Not sure which thread that was on.. and after doing a quick search, yes, he mentioned his upcoming wedding a couple weeks back. If so, happy nuptials to StBoiler :).

    What if the “special guest” is Martha the Mop Lady singing?

    Little 500

    Lol I think many of us date ourselves from time to time A few friends and I formed a Mini 500 team (the trike race), and by my years at IU, guys were also on Mini 500 teams. Our team was named St. Pauli Girls because we went to St. Paul’s Catholic Church on campus. We got that past the censors with that explanation (which was 100% true); of course, being on a tight budget, we were fortunate to receive sponsorship in the form of free t-shirts from a local watering hole with, you guessed it, St. Pauli girls on the front. Hours of actual training resulted in a great time but also a disqualification for not staying in the lines. It was harder than it looked! I was reminded during today’s broadcast that Theta attempted to qualify a women’s team in the Little 500 in 1987 and came up short. The following year, the Women’s Little 500 began. The best thing I got out of that Mini 500 and some relay race that a bunch of us also entered that weekend was a sweatshirt that said “IU Foundation” on the front, and I still have it.

    Little 500

    I watched both the men’s and women’s races via the livestream link. They were both fantastic. Very cool to see Tyra as Grand Marshall for both races. Beta had such a big lead today with maybe 15 laps to go? It was a really exciting finish! Congrats to the Cutters! Saw the son of a friend of ours on one of the little bits shown during the race, which was very cool. Always enjoy watching the Little 500!!

    I don’t think so; I found this: http://www.ncsasports.org/ncaa-eligibility-center/recruiting-rules/dead-period According to that link, April 9-12 was a dead period. May 17-25 is the next dead period. But I have zero experience with this, so I could be totally wrong.

    Fort Wayne

    Does Fortville, IN warrant being added to list? A one-word town, not two, but does technically start with “Fort”.

    Morel Mushrooms

    Lol, when I was reading about slime mold, I came across one called “dog vomit”. It appears to have received its name via obvious reasons, haha. i guess this slime mold will be, for lack of a more scientific term, slimy until it reaches the pore stage. Who knew??

    Morel Mushrooms

    The video wouldn’t play for me, but I did a little searching (because that is funky stuff), and I’m wondering if it might be slime mold? Do some searching on that, specifically orange slime mold. Here’s one of many sources of info for that that I found: https://youtu.be/B79Z56vl02A There are some fascinating videos about it and it kind of gives me the creeps, lol. One of the sources said it can be found anywhere, on a tree, in the grass, wherever.
