Mark Webber, Casey Stoner and Jamie Whincup do a lap together!

This is a great little video showing a pretty amazing comparison and lap between three of the best drivers/riders in their respective series or former series within the top machines. It blows my mind the difference that downforce plays in such and experiment. Think about the contact patch difference between the F1 car and the Moto GP bike. We could be talking about somewhere in the neighborhood of ten times or more the contact patch. Pretty incredible and entertaining stuff.

 

2012 Super Bowl… Pretty Average and Borderline Boring

Spent the late afternoon watching this years Super Bowl matchup between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots. Pretty boring for the most part. Maybe it was because I did not watch from the beginning or have the sound up all the way as I was playing with the kids and hanging out with my sister and her husband to be. There just did not seem to be a lot of fire and the presentation was somewhat blah. Brady seemed limited. Eli is pretty boring to watch although very good. Outside of the game winning catch on the sideline I felt like the play was pretty average. I was much more entertained by the games that led up to this years Super Bowl than the game itself. Could have been because it was just a rematch and teams that we have seen in the last 10 years. Not really sure. Anyway, it was fun to be with family and hang out for a bit and eat some good food. Maybe it will be a bit better next year. All I have to say is that I can look forward to the Daytona 500 now which is expected boredom with some calculated moments of excitement. NFL is done for this year…. I say bring on the motorsports baby!
