Wow ATA, really nice job with the Indy 500 parade pics and clips--I didn't know AC would be sitting in for a little commentary on the parade, so thanks for posting that. The last woman who interviewed him seemed a little flustered or unprepared, but it still managed to be an insightful chat. Loved the sound of the marching bands and AC's moment as Grand Marshal. Great post.

Thanks for the post. The pics are great. Looks like Anderson had a good time. I will have to watch the vidoes when I get home. I`m typing this on a Kindle and it can`t play video.

Am I the only person who doesn't have the sound in some of the clips (the interviews with Andy)?

WOW THANK YOU so much for all of this.

It was good seeing him enjoying himself. Was good to see Bob Jenkins again as well. Wondered what had happened to him. He use to announce the Nascar races on ESPN way back when.

Sounds like he was going to attend the race today as well, so a full weekend for him.

I can always count on ATA for anything Anderson does. Again thanks so much. You guys are awesome

Thank you

Not sure what to tell you. All the videos work fine for me and I tested them in 2 different browsers.

The videos all worked okay for me.

I never expected to see Anderson at a big NASCAR race; maybe relaxing in the Hamptons or Mississippi but it looks like he had fun.

I spent some time pulling out huge ferns but now I'm thinking of just letting them take over the yard.

It's All Things Anderson plus Griping About Your Yard!!!

Hope everyone is having fun on this big Memorial Day weekend.
