Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Last week, my family visites the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  This is a must visit for any racing fans.


The racing museum is $3 for adults and $1 for children.


They also have a shuttle tour of the track; also $3 for adults and $1 for children. BTW, if you take the shuttle and want pictures, then sit in the back seat and take the pics out the back window. There's too much glare on the side windows.


I noticed they tore down the old hotel since I last visited in the fall.

Pennsylvania 500

This last weekend, we camped in the middle of the Pocono Raceway and watched the Pennsylvania 500. The experience was awesome and we'll be doing this again every year. The infield camping area was a party. We watched the races from our motorhome's roof and from the infield fence-line. My kids cheered on Mark Martin, Dale Jr. and Jimmie Johnson. All three racers did well. Martin could've gambled on fuel to win the race, but took the safe route. Both Dale and Jimmy placed in the top 5. The kids will remember that weekend for the rest of their lives. I'm thinking Daytona and Indianapolis are in my future.

NFL Playoffs Predictions

On the back 3 of 4 predictions last week, here's what I think is coming down this weekend. Let's start with the matchups.

Saturday, Jan. 14
Washington at Seattle 4:30 FOX 126 124
New England at Denver 8:00 CBS 126 124
Sunday, Jan. 15
Pittsburgh at Indianapolis 1:00 CBS 125 124
Carolina at Chicago 4:30 FOX 125 124

I predict Seattle, New England, Indianapolis and Chicago.

The Redskins were unable to move the ball last week and were saved by an amazing defensive game and an equally bad Bucs turnover offense. The Seahawks will simply play a very conservative game on offense and that should be enough to beat the Redskins, whose offense doesn't merit playing this late in the season. On the other hand, if the Seahawks start throwing the ball on 1st and 2nd down, then the Redskins' defense could make this a game. I'm pretty sure Mike Holmgren is smarting than that and they do have the best running back in the NFL in Shaun Alexander.

I really like the Broncos. This will be the best game of the week. The Broncos haven't lost at home all season. But they are playing the Pats and the Pats are a dynasty. Now don't get me wrong, this game will be a coin flip. The Pats have a 51% chance of winning.

The Colts haven't played a significant game in more than a month. They should win. But I didn't like the selfish play demonstrated by Payton Manning in the Charger game. Edgerrin James runs the ball effectively in the first half, then it'll be a blow out, otherwise it'll be close.

Back in September, the Bengals scored 24 points against the Bears defense in Chicago. Every other home game, the Bears held the opposition to less than 10 points. I don't expect things to change this weekend.

NFL Playoffs Predictions

It's all decided, the wildcard games are...

Saturday, Jan. 7
Washington at Tampa Bay 4:30 p.m. ABC
Jacksonville at New England 8:00 p.m. ABC
Sunday, Jan. 8
Carolina at N.Y. Giants 1:00 p.m. FOX
Pittsburgh at Cincinnati 4:30 p.m. CBS

I predict the New England, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, Panthers.

The Patriots are maybe the best team in the NFL at this time, unfortunately they'll have to win two road games to repeat (tough task).

After losing to the Bengals at home, the Steelers began destroying their opponents. Bengals on the other hand, haven't played a significant game since that win over the Steelers.

Redskins haven't won a road game against a good team since their first road game of the season. Bucs last three losses were to division winners. On the other hand, the Bucs have had an easy schedule otherwise. I'm going with the Bucs, because they are at home, but it's a coin flip.

The Panthers have struggled in the second half the of the season, after winning six in a row early. You have to get hot at the right time. Fortunately, they are playing the worst defense in the playoffs. They should win.

The byes goto Indianapolis (AFC), Denver (AFC), Seattle (NFC), Chicago (NFC).
