No football until July.

If I hear again about Eli getting married, Johnson wanting out of Cincy, or that Romo is dating whoever, I'm going postal.

Don't tell me about baseball. Went to a Reds games several weeks ago. Boring.

The CP Casino is rigged. I got hit with 3 blackjacks in a roll.

SO what are YOU doing to kill the next 2 months????

Im similar in a few aspects. I am watching a lot of NBA Playoffs and watching quite a bit of MMA, including the UF Reality Show. Cant forget about fishing.

Here’s some interesting facts for the drag racing fans.
This is what racing a Top Fuel means.

*One Top Fuel dragster 500 cubic-inch Hemi engine
makes more horsepower (8,000 HP) than the first 4 rows at the Daytona 500.

* Under full throttle, a dragster engine consumes
11.2 gallons of nitro methane per second; a fully loaded 747
consumes jet fuel at the same rate with 25% less energy being produced.

* A stock Dodge Hemi V8 engine cannot produce
enough power to merely drive the dragster's supercharger.

* With 3000 CFM of air being rammed in by the
supercharger on overdrive, the fuel mixture is compressed into a
near-solid form before ignition. Cylinders run on the verge of hydraulic
lock at full throttle.

* At the stoichiometric 1.7:1 air/fuel mixture for
nitro methane the flame front temperature measures 7050 degrees F.

* Nitro methane burns yellow. The spectacular
white flame seen above the stacks at night is raw burning hydrogen,
dissociated from atmospheric water vapor by the searing exhaust
gases.

* Dual magnetos supply 44 amps to each spark plug.
This is the output of an arc welder in each cylinder.

* Spark plug electrodes are totally consumed
during a pass. After 1/2 way, the engine is dieseling from compression plus
the glow of exhaust valves at 1400 degrees F. The engine can only be
shut down by cutting the fuel flow.

* If spark momentarily fails early in the run,
unburned nitro builds up in the affected cylinders and then explodes with
sufficient force to blow cylinder heads off the block in pieces or split
the block in half.

* Dragsters reach over 300 MPH before you have
completed reading this sentence.

* In order to exceed 300 MPH in 4.5 seconds,
dragsters must accelerate an average of over 4 G's. In order to reach 200 MPH
well before half-track, the launch acceleration approaches 8
G's.

* Top Fuel engines turn approximately 540
revolutions from light to light!

* Including the burnout, the engine must only
survive 900 revolutions under load.

* The redline is actually quite high at 9500 RPM.

* THE BOTTOM LINE: Assuming all the equipment is
paid off, the crew worked for free, & for once, NOTHING BLOWS UP, each
run costs an estimated $1,000 per second.

0 to 100 MPH in .8 seconds (the first 60 feet of the run)
0 to 200 MPH in 2.2 seconds (the first 350 feet of the run)
6 g-forces at the starting line (nothing accelerates faster on land)
6 negative g-forces upon deployment of twin ‘chutes at 300 MPH
An NHRA Top Fuel Dragster accelerates quicker than any other land vehicle on earth . . quicker than a jet fighter plane . . . quicker than the space shuttle.

The current Top Fuel dragster elapsed time record is
4.420 seconds for the quarter-mile (2004, Doug Kalitta). The
top speed record is 337.58 MPH as measured over the last 66'
of the run (2005, Tony Schumacher).

Putting this all into perspective:

You are driving the average $140,000 Lingenfelter
twin-turbo powered Corvette Z06. Over a mile up the road, a Top Fuel
dragster is staged & ready to launch down a quarter-mile strip as you
pass. You have the advantage of a flying start. You run the 'Vette
hard up through the gears and blast across the starting line & pass the
dragster at an honest 200 MPH. The 'tree' goes green for both of
you at that moment.

The dragster launches & starts after you. You keep
your foot down hard, but you hear an incredibly brutal whine that sears
your eardrums & within 3 seconds the dragster catches & passes you.
He beats you to the finish line, a quarter-mile away from where you just
passed him. Think about it - from a standing start, the dragster had
spotted you 200 MPH & not only caught, but nearly blasted you off the road
when he passed you within a mere 1320 foot long race!

That's acceleration !

You don’t have to agree with me. You don’t like racing and prefer sitting on a beach people watching, fine. I can people watch also, and sitting pool side or on a beach is relaxing for a short period of time but I get bored with it fairly quick.

Fair enough, but I don't go to 'people watch'. I go with girls, meet other girls, play beach volleyball, go into the gulf/ocean/pool, play football, drinking games, etc. I don't get bored..

Spring is my favorite time of year. I was out enjoying the apple blossoms this morning, prior to going to the gym. They popped out over night, I sure hope it is a good year for the apples. Last year the late frost eliminated them. But if the blossoms are any indication, (almost none last year) there should be plenty.

That'll change in 2 weeks though.

Wow I actually agree with DaK on something for once, I think racing is absolutely boring. I like working on my cars and I love my Cutlass which is a straight beast on the street. Only kind of racing I like to watch is street racing to be quite honest, I like stock racing a little bit also.

This year the Lakers will take up some time which is a blast! Tiger has been and as soon as he's healthy, will continue to keep me entertained as well. The driving range a couple of blocks from my home takes up a little time. My daughter and my lovely wife. Several great friends who enjoy a nice bbq, sitting by the pool, drinking Martinis and smoking cigars. The only thing I'm missing and have missed for 18 years now is spring turkey season.
