10 years between drinks is a long long time.
I actually missed the race, for the first time since 1970. Hopefully this will be the only time I'll miss it. I spent the day unable to concentrate on what I was doing, being more concerned with events occurring a state away.
OTOH - I'm kinda glad I missed it, I had the feeling it would be a bit of a Brock-wallow and I hate getting all emotional.
