As it turns out, this car is approximately 2000 times more awesome as a convertible. I finally broke down and removed the top this weekend - despite the loss of intercooler air feed from the roof.

I must say that I have fallen in love again with what seems like a totally new car that I've had for well over a year. I drove *all day* on Sunday on windy roads deep in the California mountains and valleys - laughing the whole time. Wow.

Pins to go...

At the docs... Pins are supposed to be removed today - but we'll see.

Alcatraz Angels

Alcatraz Angels 019, originally uploaded by joeracer.

This last weekend was Fleet Week in San Francisco. I took a trip to Alcatraz with a group of photographers to capture some great pix of the Blue Angels.

It was a great venue to watch them, and a stunning backdrop for photos... Unfortunately, all the shots were terribly back-lit (by a setting sun) so the colors are not up to snuff.

View the whole set on flickr.

Quakes and Tottenham Hotspur

I was at a press conference this afternoon where the San Jose Earthquakes announced a major new partnership with Tottenham Hotspur. If you don't know them, Tottenham Hotspur is a great team in the English Premier League. If you don't know who the San Jose Earthquakes are, please stop reading my blog. Now.

Presumably the partnership will have more significance when the Quakes build up their developmental program - which will likely come with the new stadium. In the meantime, both teams should pick up a few more fans from across the pond.

Hey! I shaved my head!

Why you ask?

Because I felt like it. Well, that and because having one hand is really bugging the shit out me in the mornings. Last time I shaved my head was... ummm... never. The closest was in France during the 1998 World Cup. I cut my hair very short and bleached it stark white. I looked like a punk albino. It was rad.

I just cut a good 8 minutes of total frustration out of my mornings!

Palin Bingo

I'm surprised she didn't sound like a complete idiot. Any time a massive underdog doesn't suck in a debate, they're considered the "winner".

*sigh* This is going to suck.

I got my cast off today in my first post-surgery checkup and HOLY COWS! I'z got me some big ass pins sticking out of my hand! It was quite a surprise because I haven't talked to my doctor since a week *before* the surgery.

Now I'm in a smaller removable cast that just keeps the pins safe from being bumped (kinda), but I basically have to stay paranoid and protective.
