The Evil That Idle Time Brings
Down-time in the Verizon IndyCar Series means idle time. Idle time generally leads to bad things – evil things. And so it is with One Take Only; the videoblog of Oilpressure.com. It is unrehearsed, unscripted and unedited. We just sit down, start the camera rolling and start talking about IndyCar – all the while keeping an eye on the clock to keep it under fifteen minutes for You Tube. Whatever we get, we keep – hence the name.
In this segment, John and I discuss the Indianapolis 500, the double-headers at Detroit and Ed Carpenter’s win at Texas. We also take on the subject of the proposed new ownership of the Nashville Superspeedway – as John and I have differing opinions. Finally, we revisit the all-important issue of 100% cotton versus Dri-Fit.
This is what happens with two straight non-racing weekends. Idle minds start thinking of evil ways to pass one’s time. One Take Only is the most polarizing part of this website. Some absolutely hate these installments, including some of my own family members. I have a brother who despises them. Others e-mail me asking when we are going to do the next one. I had several people tell me in Indianapolis this past May that they loved them. Maybe they just didn’t quite know what else to say.
John and I both enjoy taping these things, so I guess that’s all that matters. Whatever the case – if you like them, pour some coffee and listen to two old coots ramble on about IndyCar for fifteen minutes, while you do other things. If this isn’t your thing – come back Monday.
