        Actually I know of at least 1 more. At work there are fair good number.

        Formula 1 in the U.S. has had double digit growth over the last few years, some believe due to it introduction of "Survive to Drive" on NETFLIX. F1 now owned by a U.S. firm (Liberty Media) has set it focus to grow F1 in the U.S. and want to add a second race.

          If only F1 had this guy.

          There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

            That looks ***** familiar! More details!

            I don't have a problem w/ F1. I would prefer it to 'neckcar if I had to make a choice I think.

              Thats the toy I never git as a kid. Always wanted it. Best ****ing toy, ever!

              When the buddies I grew up with get together, we always end up talking about who had the coolest toys. Doug had the whole Evel Knievel set; the ramps, the van, the Snake River Rocket Bike .Everything. I had nothing!

              They started making these again this fall. Some guy bought the rights to the whole thing and found the original molds. You can buy these everywhere on the web.

              Anyway, another buddy saw them and sent this to me for Christmas. I freaking love it! I've jumped the ottoman, the dog, a trash can, just like when I was a kid! I keep this on my mantle and the kids cant touch it. I break it out every week or so and act like I'm nine all over again!

              If you're fifty to sixty years-old, you know that this is The
              Greatest
              Toy
              Ever!

                I had my Evie Knievel. It was great. To bad it went the way of all my baseball cards.

                I mean my mom kept my kindergarden and 1st grade grade cards? How hard would it have been to keep my baseball cards, evel knievel, full size GI joe, etc?

                  I swear to God I played with that toy as a young tyke. But I don't think I owned it. Not 50-60 but I got my hands on one fo sho. They were fast as lightning weren't they? Perhaps the 3 greatest engineering achievements of the early-mid 20th century: atom bomb, man on the moon, and the Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle.

                  Awesome video too! Dammit! We need to make toys GREAT AGAIN!

                    Bahrain will be offering Formula 1 participants the opportunity to get vaccinated since the F1 teams will be in the country for testing and then the first race. They will be getting the Pfizer vaccine.

                      Will it be the Lewis Hamilton show again this year? It would be hard to bet against him.
                      An “Old West” Texas analysis and summary of Mueller report and Congress’ efforts in one sentence:

                      "While we recognize that the subject did not actually steal any horses, he is obviously guilty of trying to resist being hanged for it."

                      Stop the talk about bringing back Shocker football and concentrate on bringing back Shocker baseball!

                        I suspect yes. So the 2021 season will be more about the story lines than a great battle for the Championship.

                        1. Hamilton - he can lock up GREATEST EVER by winning this year.

                        2. Mid-Field fight - it will be tight again, but now with the new dynamics of driver swaps

                        3. Checo vs Verstappen - were Gasly/Albon just to inexperience to hang with Max, or will Checo run into the same issue.

                        4. Sainz - LeClerc at Ferrari - will there be some latin heat between the two or will Sainz accept his role.

                        5. Alonso return to Renault. Will he destroy his teammate Ocon?

                        6. Vettel - will he rebound with new team or is this his last season

                        7. McClaren - do they make another jump with the addition of Ricardo (teamed with Norris)

                        8. Will there be Mercedes drama? Who will Russell replace?

                        9. Will Red Bull start where they left off from last year and continue to challenge Mercedes? Or will Mercedes find a way to improve and make the Lewis Hamilton show?
