Rain, Rain – Go Away
Well, just as the IZOD IndyCar practice was wrapping up – here came the rains. We grabbed a shuttle back to the media center which is a tent. I sat down to put up this post and water started puddling at my feet. It became quite the scene to see the IndyCar personnel scrambling to sop up the water before it got into all of the electrical equipment.
Other than that, this is a very sophisticated “tent” they have set up here. They outgrew the media center they used last year and erected this tent. It’s amazing. there are HD monitors everywhere, countless wireless networks and stations galore. Last year, I leaned against a pole and blogged via my iphone. This year, I get to sit and spread out and use the laptop.
Today, I’ve gotten to know a longtime IndyCar writer – John Bryant from Nazareth, PA. He is a member of the Old Timers club at Indianapolis. He has forgotten more about racing than I’ll ever know. His stories have been fascinating to listen to. It’s interesting watching the camaraderie between these writers who have known each other for decades.
Anyway, the sun has come out and the rains have stopped. I’ll be back later.
