Indianapolis 500 – May 26, 2019 — Calling all Hoosier’s

The Indianapolis 500 is today and every Hoosier in the world should be watching this great race.

Now I am a NASCAR fan, but because I was born in Indiana I am required to watch at least 20 laps of every Indianapolis 500 race.  Yes Folks, if you were born in Indiana before 1979, look at the bottom left corner of your birth certificate.  In very small print it says that you agree to this contract and your parent’s signature assures the execution of this statement.

“So what happens if you don’t watch?” you ask?  Well they will take away your status of being a “Hoosier”.  Now I am very proud of being a “Hoosier” and I wish to keep that label for my entire life on this planet.  So every year I watch and smile when I hear the State Song, “On the Banks of the Wabash Far Away” played at the beginning of the 500.  See we get to call the race the “500” or “Indy 500” because I am a Hoosier.  If you are not a Hoosier you have to say, “The Indianapolis 500”.   The smiles grows when they follow the state song with “Back Home Again in Indiana”, which has also become an Indy 500 tradition.

We have nothing to add at this time except to say we are relieved we get to keep the “Hoosier” Title for another year because today we will be watching.  Get the milk bottle out and we shall see you at the end of the race at the bricks.

Important Note:  If it wasn’t for the greatest military in the universe out there in cyberland protecting the USA we probably would not have the honor participating in Memorial Day activities.

Great job you guys and THANK YOU!
