Not That There Is Anything Wrong With a Person's Orientation

The week leading up to the Indianapolis 500 usually features a lot of media and publicity, including loading all 33 up on a plane and heading for New York. This year they blew off Times Square and instead shot a group photo in front of Macy’s, the retailer that carries the hideously overpriced and relatively (compared to the swag the IRL folks sport) fugly Izod merchandise that seems unavailable in most Macy’s locations outside central Indiana. That commercial tie-in makes a lot of sense.

In racing field news Conquest replaced Bruno Junquiera with Alex Tagliani, who was bumped and was not able to bump back in. That has to be rough on Bruno, who pulled off a limited lap run and put it in the show. There are sponsorship obligations Tags must meet, so the decision was made. At least Anthony IV will have less to worry about come race day.

The Defender jet leaves for Indy Thursday morning, and I can hardly wait. Everything else is of secondary importance this week.
