    Should be a good run this year. Big personality shakeups. Hot weather.

    What's your idea of fun - watching a house burn down?

    And have a great time at the barbecue on the lake.

    It's a tradition, I watch off and on mostly the last half but to some, it's as big as the superbowl. I have friends who go every year.

    Skull Pilot, I'm willing to bet you live in a cold climate with only 60 days of summer - right?

    If you're having friends over, turn it on for them. I bet they'd watch some.

    Of course it's Memorial Day and there are parades and respect for the military but the race is part of it. This area of the country is all about car racing. Nascar, Indy, MIS, etc..

    I live in New England.

    And weather does not stop me from going outside.

    I hike, backpack and camp all year round. In the winter I cross country ski and snowshoe.

    In the summer I kayak, canoe and climb.

    My wife and I will even hike into the nearby state forest and camp out for a night in the middle of the week and be back before work the next day.

    I choose to do stuff rather than sit on my ass and watch other people do stuff on the boob tube.

    I fact I'm on my way out the door in about an hour to do a 5 mile romp with the dogs.

    I have been wearing a 40 pound pack on these hikes to get in shape for a 40 mile backpacking trip I have planned for the fall.
