Yeah, Molly and I were looking forward to a fun day of football and racing today and then we just got socked in the gut. Sucks.

That was a bad wreck. I am mortified that Dan passed. Even though I'm not a huge IRL fan, I will say that anyone who has the balls to drive all-out at 225 mph around a track gets my respect. At only 33 years old with 2 Indy 500 victories he had one hell of a career. The entire motorsports community is in mourning. I wish the best for his family as he has a wife and a few kids.

Consider me bummed out.....
