Sad, sad weekend

Well, as you may be aware of, I am still without cable TV AND still alive.
Sad but true this weekend will be the second Formula One race of the season we, or my husband will miss.
I don't think he ever missed a race. Hell, he even drove up to Indianapolis two years ago.
Anyways, what is sad about this weekend is that 10 years ago Ayrton Senna, one of the greatest drivers ever died in a horrible accident in Imola, Italy. By that time he had already won three championships and surely would have won many more. Well, it came different, Michael Schumacher won his first championship that year and has won many since (I believe five so far).
There are still questions as to who is to blame for that accident. A court is going to open the case again, which will probably not find anything new. Many believe though, that it could not have possibly been a mistake by Senna himself.

I know that Formula One is not as popular as Nascar in the US, but at least they don't drive in circles.
If anybody is interested to learn more. You can go to If you want to watch the race, SpeedTV is always showing it. This weeks schedule is as follows:

San Marino
Practice Fri, Apr 23 8am LIVE
Qualifying Sat, Apr 24 8am LIVE
San Marino Grand Prix Sun, Apr 25 7:30am LIVE

Also, if you want to see more about the race ten years ago there is a F1 Decade showing highlights of that race on Saturday, May 1st at 11pm ET/8pm PT.

And, if anybody has a lot of time and wants to record all of that and send it to me, I know somebody that will be very happy...
