Reply to SLC announcing booth 4/24/2021 9:29 PM

I thought Blair did a great job. I wouldn’t mind him being in the booth full time. RC is going to have his moments but overall didn’t bother me. Two ex racers calling the action was better than what we have had. Add Ashley Reynard instead of Will and ... more »

That is great news. Hope it is a step towards full time next year.

Reply to Lost my Dad..... 4/17/2021 10:49 PM

My condolences to you and your family. Love your Thanksgiving photos and your Dad’s big smile. Great memories to have. I lost my Dad in 1985 and I still miss him. Some days I just see things and think I wish Dad was here to see that or sometimes to just ... more »

Reply to Cooper Webb's podium interview 4/11/2021 9:59 AM

Webb just has that confident look about him like he knows if he keeps things clean and stays close to the two other guys that this thing is his. I was rooting for Kenny to finally get a SX title but sorry to say I don’t think that will happen. Webb keeps ... more »

I had a couple of friends tell me that the MotoGP package is too expensive. While it is high I look at it like this. I usually go to Anaheim SX, Long Beach IndyCar and Pomona Drags every year. With Anaheim not happening and not sure about the others ... more »

I agree with you on the video pass subscription. Two races in and no regrets purchasing it. Was busy yesterday so I have the app setup in the no spoiler mode and I watched the racing last night. Great racing.

Reply to Got a shot today 4/2/2021 8:57 AM

I got my second Moderna shot last Friday. First shot was a sore arm and a headache the day after but that was it. After my shot last Friday morning I woke up later that night with a terrible headache and started feeling achy. Next day I was sore and ... more »

Reply to Retirement decision? 3/31/2021 10:04 AM

I retired in December 2018 at 63. I would turn 65 in June 2020, then I could get on Medicare. Wasn’t going to have insurance till then so here is what I found out. For that year and a half my only income was my SS check. I didn’t touch any money in my ... more »

Reply to Catalytic converter theft 3/31/2021 12:17 AM

There was a news story here on ABC7 a couple of weeks ago about a car falling on a guy trying to steal one. Employees coming to work found him under a company car. He jacked the car up and was cutting off the converter and the jack collapsed crushing ... more »

Glad to help. 😄 you sound like you have done your research and have a good handle on things. I have a friend that went to work at Home Depot after he retired. He was just looking for something to do a few days a weeks. Myself I can keep myself busy, ... more »

Reply to Retirement decision? 3/30/2021 5:04 PM

Well I retired on Dec 31 2018. I was 63 at the time. I had worked hard since I got out of high school. The last few years my back and knee problems increased and the work grind was getting me down. The company I worked for was family owned. They were ... more »

Reply to 2021 MotoGP Season 3/27/2021 12:31 AM

Just did the same thing today. When BEIn sports had MotoGP we at least got to see all three classes of the races but since it changed over to NBC Sports coverage has sucked here in the US. So I decided to bite the bullet and get the subscription. Watched ... more »

I enjoyed the race. Anytime a race is on midweek is a win to me.

Reply to Rutledge Wood 3/13/2021 5:35 PM

I have seen him in the rare occasion I turn on a NASCAR race. It seems the motorsports broadcasts nowadays feel they need to make it a comedy show to keep viewers attention. I saw Jeff Gordon and Clint Bower acting like a couple of fools on the NASCAR ... more »

So happy for AP7. How can you not like that guy. Hope he gets a win or another podium tonight.

Reply to Monster Energy Supercross 4 3/13/2021 12:10 PM

I keep buying the games hoping one day they will listen to the people paying for and playing their games and make the changes they point out. Agree with Spode on his points. First thing I noticed was how bad the track surfaces look. The track surfaces ... more »

Ha,ha I was typing almost the same thing as you posted. 😄

I wish they would move Ashley up to the night show. She does a great job doing the interviews compared to Will.

Reply to Arlington 1 Supercross - Timed Qualifying Bench Racing 3/13/2021 11:22 AM

We can’t have Jim Holly but have Rutledge Wood... 😡 bring back Hollywood.

We use to ride in the Santa Clara river bottom that runs between Oxnard and Ventura. They stopped it years ago because of dust, ground deterioration and some sort of nesting grounds. Now there are so many homeless people living there you can’t stir them ... more »
