    I won't criticize Hildebrand for crashing for several reasons:
    1. I could never get my fat behind into the car.
    2. In the unlikely event I did get into the car they would have to cut it open to get me out.
    3. I have never driven 200+ mph. I hit 145 on the Autobahn in a Mercedes 280s once. Any faster and I would have hyperventilated or soiled my Depends.
    4. If I had spent the last 2.45 miles repeating "I'm going to win the Indy 500." I probably would have turned right as well.
    5. I cannot complete a lap on Playstation.
    6. Too many buttons on the steering wheel and none of them are a horn.
    7. You can hit 220 mph and hit another button and go faster.
    8. He finished second after hitting the wall. I would have been picking carbon fiber out of my teeth.
    9. He finished second on three wheels. I can't get out of the driveway with a flat.
    10. He will be remembered by trivia fans.
    I drive a bus for a living. I've found the folks that criticize the most couldn't put a minivan in a parking space at Wally World.

    Good grief Padre!!! Who's criticizing? Did you have a bad day or something? It's just incredible that he had it won and put it in the wall. It was a "Wow!!" moment.

    I've had a few things in the "bag" too only to blow it. I'm just glad I didn't do it in the viewing eye of the public.

    We get to eat crow with humble pie for dessert. Hildebrand walked away with a million plus to help assuage his grief.:thumbs:
