A sure sign spring has arrived: it’s F1 season!

This post serves as a reminder to myself to stay up late here in the Central Standard Time zone to tune in the first Formula 1 race of the season from Australia. But I dunno why I bother, because the races look like they are going to be boring this season and the fix seems…

A very rain-soaked and tragic F1 race in Japan

Well, after that 18-inning playoff baseball game yesterday, I decided I was not done watching sports on TV, so I stayed up late to watch the Formula 1 race from Japan live.
