A Monday Morning Conversation

After nearly three months, Paul Dalbey of Fieldof33.com and I got together again via Skype to discuss what has been going on in the world of the NTT IndyCar Series – with our video series Two Sites Unite. To say this is old-school technology would be an understatement.

There are a couple of times throughout the video that one or both of our screens freeze up. When we were finished, I went out to find that Susan had fired up her war-room in our den. She had two lap-tops going (one for work), her iPad and two iPhones all using our wi-fi so that she could do her weekly reports for her job. Added to that, she had fired up Netlix on the TV. It’s a wonder there was any bandwidth left at all as we recorded this on Friday night. But even though the quality is not always the best – there is a lot of ground covered in thirty-two minutes, so stick with it.

Probably the first two-thirds of this video deal with our impressions of the whole James Hinchcliffe/Arrow McLaren SP fiasco. But we also talk about the IndyCar championship as well as looking ahead to next season.

There is not a whole lot of kidding around on here, like there was on the One Take Only videos. This one is mostly all-racing. I am trying to coax John McLallen out of his self-induced retirement for some more episodes of One Take Only, but it may be next spring when it happens, if it happens at all. So for now – you get this

So pour a cup of coffee and listen to a couple of bloggers yammer on about IndyCar. What else do you have to do on a Monday morning?
