I would love to go to Legoland. My sister has a bunch of pics from her visit.

Yeah.. I will be watching. I never miss a race. or practice. Or Quali.

Probably be the usual suspects up front, but I find myself rooting for Sauber this season.

I'm not sure about Hamilton anymore. No question he is one of the best (THE best?) out there this year, but his attitude kind of riles me.

I am a bit of a Button fan though.

You are right - he needs to learn to be humble and not play the diva all the time

I had to turn qualifying over last night, our reception on the digital ONE channel was unbearable.

I'll be watching it tonight though since it's moved over to a channel I can get on analogue.
