Indianapolis 500, 2008!

Geez, what a heck of a race! Mighty Mite was impressed!

Jim Nabors was back to sing "Back Home Again in Indiana" -- yay! And the weather was PERFECT, thank goodness. That doesn't always happen here in Indy, and we all too often end up having to postpone the race until Monday or even later in the week. But the race got off to a GREAT start, and then rapidly turned into Yellow Flags Galore -- that, and Danica Patrick almost got into what no doubt would have been a major slugfest with Ryan Briscoe, for takin' out her car. Luckily, security stopped her before anything serious could happen.

Congratulations to Scott Dixon for the win! Granted, I was kinda rootin' for Australian driver Will Power (who has one of the BEST racing names EVER), but Scott did well! Good race!

Here's the final tally on how everyone finished:

1 Scott Dixon
2 Vitor Meira
3 Marco Andretti
4 Helio Castroneves
5 Ed Carpenter
6 Ryan Hunter-Reay
7 Hideki Mutoh
8 Buddy Rice
9 Darren Manning
10 Townsend Bell
11 Oriol Servia
12 Dan Wheldon
13 Will Power
14 Davey Hamilton
15 Enrique Bernoldi
16 John Andretti
17 Buddy Lazier
18 Mario Moraes
19 Milka Duno
20 Bruno Junqueira
21 A.J.Foyt IV
22 Danica Patrick
23 Ryan Briscoe

28 Jeff Simmons
29 Tony Kanaan
30 Sarah Fisher
31 Jaime Camara
32 Marty Roth
33 Graham Rahal

A good time was had by all in the Sea of Green household. I also got to design my own race car, courtesy of the Indianapolis Star. Wheeee! :-)

Can Mighty Mite POSSIBLY get any cuter? I hope she enjoyed the race.

I saw Will Power and almost spit out my soda. He sounds like a Green Lantern character!

He LOOKS like a Green Lantern character. Nice backside. ;-)
