Sunday Stuffs

Here are a few random links for your viewing pleasure that I came across while surfing the web this morning. As I heard on SportingNews radio, legitimate web surfing; in other words it is too early on Sunday morning to be looking for some T&A.

After the affair ends …
A reminder for married folks to be careful who they jilt after the sex factor comes to an end.

YaVaughnie Wilkins posted the signs after she learned that her lover, Charles E. Phillips — president and director of the tech conglomerate Oracle Corporation and a member of Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board — had reconciled with his wife, the New York Post reported.

The billboards — there are three in New York and one apiece in Atlanta and San Francisco, where Phillips lives — may have cost Wilkins up to $250,000, at an estimated $50,000 each.

After the billboards surfaced, Phillips fessed up to his longtime affair through a spokesman on Thursday.

The again this one probably only applies to rich folks. I am sure Tiger can relate.

Miranda Kerr
OK, so I lied about not having enough coffee to look for T&A, but by golly wow is Miranda beautiful! I did come across this one while taking in my daily dose of morning Fox news; we can chalk this up as legitimate.

Cheers to beer in a can!
I had no idea that canned beer has been around for 75 years! It’s nice to learn something new before 7AM.

Team US F1 looks not so American
While I am excited about the prospects of a U.S. based F1 team, I am disappointed to learn that the first driver announced is not an American.

AUTOSPORT reports that former grand prix ace Carlos Reutemann, a close friend of US F1 boss Peter Windsor and now a leading politician in Argentina, has been instrumental in putting the funding package together for Lopez, who will receive a degree of government backing alongside other Argentinian sponsors.

I have nothing at all against Jose Maria Lopez; I hope he shows well for US F1, but it sort of sucks that an American could not put together a funding package. Then again, Lopez has the full backing of the Argentina government! Maybe President Obama and his socialist agenda should considering jumping into racing. Why not inject some cash into NASCAR, IRL, and US F1?

Happy NFL Championship Sunday!

  1. JC, to the very best of my knowledge USF1 haven’t demonstrated that they’ve got their American car ready yet, never mind an American driver. Very nearly a year ago I wrote a piece in which I tried and failed to work out which American racers had the necessary talent, experience and interest in the project, and in truth I’m still a bit stuck for a name.

  2. Adam – Good to hear from you. Always enjoy your views on all things petrol. This may be worth me expanding into a larger article – maybe over the weekend watching the Rolex 24 hrs at Daytona.

    While there may not be any Americans currently holding a Super License (or whatever the thing needed to drive in F1 is called) I think there are drivers capable. Look no further than NASCAR to find a few drivers that could take on the challenge. RACER magazine always features some young up and coming drivers, and while I do not necessarily follow them, the U.S. does have talent in some of the feeder leagues.

    Of course open wheel racing in America is a mess; once again another story.

    I think it comes down to money. When a driver has the full backing of a government, it is kind of hard to turn down the financial windfall that is sure to come with that driver taking a seat.

  3. The latest whisper is that Adrian Valles, who hails from an area in the far east of the USA that I’d previously thought was called Spain, is in line for the second USF1 seat provided he brings something like 8 million Euros with him, and that if anyone else can bring that 8 million Euros first, he’ll not be driving.

    There are American drivers coming through – J.R Hildebrand tested for Force India last year, though not that impressively – but tasked with finding that kind of money in the current climate, I’m not sure I see where the incentive is for them to bother. That especially applies to those in NASCAR who’d be capable of it – think Kyle Busch for starters.

    There’s a lot of talk about this Stefan GP outfit that bought Toyota’s assets and wants to go racing this year – if USF1 are struggling, or if Campos don’t make it, they might get a late entry. Kazuki Nakajima is confirmed there, and apparently Ralf Schumacher is interested in the other drive. Yes, really.

  4. Funny one on that East coast Spain thing. Money talks. Hope this USF1 thing is not a complete joke.

    Ralf can come back if his brother sponsors him!
