As a kid I was such a sports fan that I’d wake up early on race day and listen to the Indy 500 on the radio!
I always wonder how descriptive announcers got on the radio about car crashes. You know, since the fan isn't there live in person how vividly do they document the broken fiber glass, the tire that catapults off the vehicle, & the safety of the driver.
I miss the mystique of radio that TV & the internet shattered after they arrived on the scene. It's not as easy to chronicle ambiance as some people think with just your speech, words, & tone.

100GFB will soon be leaving the forum. It’s been great but it’s time to leave the building. It’s nothing on anyone just time to start a new chapter or even a new book! Yikes I hate to read! This forum has been great as I can’t go to the bar down the street and talk Colts football. I don’t live in Indiana nor any of the neighboring states so this provided me with news - good or bad it was news on my team. I enjoyed reading the friendly and sometimes outrageous banter but it was Colts news. I’ll always be a Colts/Indiana fan. As a Colts fan let’s just say my fan base goes back to The Horse, Johnny U, Big Daddy and Mutz. My favorite toy as a youngster was an Indy 500 replica. Lol! It was metal and heavy. SW1/Ruston you could say it was heavy metal. I may be back but it’s time to leave the building.
HC? Draft prospects? Are theses significant issues in ones life? Try getting a breaking news text, “Incoming missle attack, take cover this is not a drill.”
Next thing you know somebody will knock on your door & ask you if you wanna buy an underground bomb shelter again. Deja Va Cuban Missile Crisis reboot. Only kidding!
In all seriousness, that had to be a very frightening experience even with a false alarm. Like you have got to be joking right?
Here's hoping that never happens again. Why does bad stuff always happen to people I like instead of colossal jerks anyway? Just once can't we reverse that trend? LOL!
Happy New Year to everyone!
Thanks Nadine received my Manning towel today!
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
Both ND and Navy showed class at the end of the game! Kudos to the school, coaches and team!
