Default At the Indy 500

It's live on ABC
They did the invocation, then the 21 gun salute, played taps, Jon MacLaughlin sang an unfamiliar song that transitioned into God Bless America.
Then Kelly Clarkson sang The Star Spangled Banner perfectly. Then a B-1 bomber flyover.

But never once - seemingly - took a knee to remember all the brave men, women and children that died on our nations roads.

Enjoy the race.

You suck!

I'm in Sweden and it's not even televised here. I can't even stream it on my phone because they blocking streaming live sports.

I did go for the 100th running a couple of years ago. My brother has gone every year since 1984. He has worked his way up to having amazing seats, right across from Victory Circle in the back row of the bottom grandstand.

Minutes after I posted the link about Ms. Patrick, she hit the wall and is out of the race.
She walked away from the damage.

Yeah, yeah. I could give two craps about auto racing except for Indy. I don't even care about the other races in the series. There's just something about Indy though. There's so much history and tradition there. I've been to the race eight times. Here's the start of the 2016 500. I've been to eight of them with my brother.

So why are you posting on here instead of enjoying the race?

Between NASCAR and Indy, she has exactly one win. How does that make her great? If she was not female, she would have been unemployed years ago.

Wait. Wouldn't taking a knee be protesting?
... you have all those other elements and you're not feeling it was patriotic enough? I don't understand.

I don't think there are many lefties at the Indy 500, nor do I think they would influence the million there.

She was "great" to listen to on the scanners, cursing up a storm, yelling, its everyone elses fault blah blah. But otherwise I agree with your statement

She was ok as an Indy car driver. Sucked big time in NASCAR like most other drivers who follow the money and jump ship to NASCAR or F1. Hope she's not too much of a distraction for A-Rod next season. I'm a Packers fan.
