@matthew – apologies for side tracking the conversation, and I certainly mean no disrespect as I’m a bit of an Anglophile myself, but I have noticed during my trips to the UK that most drinks are served at a slightly warmer temperature than stateside. I asked about this and one hypothesis is that the higher cost of power makes it prohibitive for store owners to really chill their drinks or have excess ice at the ready. Of course it could also be that the Brits understand more about power conservation and sustainability. Something we could stand to pay more attention to over here. At any rate – back to the racing.
I was fortunate to be at Monza for Vettel’s first win in 2008 and although I’m a massive Ferrari fan, if Seb is going to win it this year it would be awesome to see it first hand. Hoping they put on a good show!!
Also, in the US it is exceedingly rare that a venue will allow guests to bring in food and drink. Of course it would be nice to NOT spend 8 dollars per beer, but that’s just life. Sort of like how it’s always hard to get a really cold drink in Europe. You get used to it.
Looking forward to seeing ya’all in the Long Horn State!! YEEE HAAWWW!!!!!
