what a day. the indianapolis 500 ended up a rain shortened race. buddy rice won it when the race was shortened to 175 laps (i think that many) to rain. the race was delayed twice for over 4 hours. at least the coca cola 600 went accordingly. jimmie johnson won that race. not quite 1100 miles of racing. boy am i wiped.
calgary won game 3 3-0. after a sluggish first period (7 shots total), calgary played their game and shut down tampa bay after getting the first goal. i cant wait till sunday. the indianapolis 500 and the coca cola 600. 1100 miles of racing. robby gordon is going to drive both races. hes done it before. good thing theres a couple hour gap between the indy 500 and the coca cola 600. hopefully he will do well. lokking forward to a racing day. more later

some freakish weather happening lately. not necessarily here. southern sakatchewan and manitoba got slammed with a bunch of snow. figures. the "freak may snowstorm" had to happen sometime and somewhere. meanwhile this past sunday, amber brkich was the sole survivor. she won survivor all-stars by beating rob mariano, or boston rob, 4 votes to 3. ravin and i started this survivor with 4 picks. by the merge he had one left - amber. i had 3 left. one of which was rob. i told him at this point the games not over yet, anythings possible. sure enough, he won our little bet. probably lunch or something. well decide something on our weekly sunday survivor meeting. geez cant wait till survivor 9 in the fall.

no hockey till saturday. even then i cant watch it. its on in the afternoon while im working, and im not too happy about it. 3 saturdays in a row without hockey isnt good. i smell conspiracy. saturday night hockey is a canadian institution thats being messed with. at least the calgary flames are still in the playoffs. they are in the conference finals. its them vs san jose. in the east its philly and tampa bay. until then its basketball and baseball. hmmm payday friday! time to plot. just dont give me ideas.
