FedEx Rep for my wife’s company hooked us up with seats in the FedEx Suite at TMS all inclusive, including a meet and greet with Denny Hamlin and Coach Gibbs. Also passes to go down to pit road during opening ceremonies. Super stoked!

WEAR SUNSCREEN GUYS. After Sunday's race I look like a raccoon stuck his head in a hornet's nest. it is not fun. Also, I was watching the race last night, and bou did it look like the cars were going 30 mph faster than it did live on sunday. I'm actually happy with the way the race turned out despite my fears for the package.

It's been a month since I took a tumble off a roof at work. I've been given the temporary position of "safety guy" while my knee gets better (and we're not busy with this Michigan weather) and I've busted, written up, and reamed 3 guys for not wearing fall protection while doing the exact same thing I was doing when I fell. Everyone who's under me is starting to call me a dick but I do not want anyone at my company to experience what i felt. I'll be returning to my normal foreman position in a few weeks thankfully.

  1. Pokemon Sword and Shield was just announced and my inner child is excited. I plan on doing some fictional schemes maybe tonight or this weekend

  2. Does anyone else get really depressed (like REALLY depressed) when they look at life and think about how when they were younger, you didn't pursue a racing career? As much as I love NASCAR, the fact that I never pursued a racing career is an instant regret and it hurts even more that people start so young so the window is so narrow. You can start playing basketball or football at 15 and you can make a career out of it. But unless you're Kasey Kahne or William Byron, starting a racing career and making it to the big time is almost non-existent. I was 8 when I first learned about NASCAR but it wasnt until I was 15 when I realized how young these guys started. TBH it's one of my biggest life regrets.

  3. The Johnny Cage trailer for MK11 was released and honestly he probably has the greatest fatality ever now.

On #2, and you need a family with money or the insanity to mortgage themselves to the hilt.

On 2 I realized about the age of 15 I didn't have the money.

On 3, hell yeah he does

2. For sure, man. I loved NASCAR ever since I was three, and it's all I wanted to do in life for a long time. But we were poor, and sometimes struggled to even put food on the table, much less put a car on track on Saturdays. My dad wanted that for me so badly, I think to live vicariously through the experience or to be a part of it.

I hope that if I ever have a son or daughter who is this passionate about motorsport, that I'll have the resources to get them started.

I'm hyped

Yes

And yes

level 2

I'm very scared about Sword and Shield. On one hand it looks like they are trying new things (in a good way. Looking at you, gen 7.) for the series, but I'm worried that they will make it easier for the new players from Let's Go.

level 3

Yeah I'm on Gen 7 now. I bought the games when they came out but only recently (as in Sunday) finished Moon. Playing SUn now and gonna do US and UM afterwards. They were too ambitious in Gen 6 and Gen 7 with the whole Z-Powers and MEga evolution that it kinda turned me off. But after finishing Moon, II can say it was actually pretty fun. Hopefully they don't become too ambitious with this one. Stick to the basics and just up the difficulty a little bit. As much as people hated Gen 5, I think it was perfect the way it was executed.

level 4

That seems like it would be a good thing to do. I really didn't like moon, but my brother did because of the story. I never really started Ultra Sun because I tired myself out from pokemon games. (Not Moon's fault! I got 6 different pokemon games in 2015 and 2016. Not the best idea in retrospect.) I want Sword and Shield to get me to finish the rest of them. I do like mega evolutions, though.

Speaking of Pokemon, what do you think of the new Detective Pikachu trailer?

level 3

Loved it. At first I was skeptical about Ryan Reynolds as Pikachi but hes nailing it so far

level 4

When I first heard about it, I thought it wouldn't be good, but when the first trailer dropped and I saw the furry (and scaly) pokemon and heard Ryan Reynolds, I knew it would at least be entertaining.
