I've either got my dates wrong or It's your birthday today Bo. :beerchug: :partytime:

If so, Happy birthday...

If not...

Look closely at 3 of your closest friends. If they seem OK it's probably you.

I will wait for confirmation on this.
For now I offer a tentative happy birthday. Nothing in caps and no smilies yet, just tentative.

Love that thumbnail you added.   73 ain't old.

Keep it up Bruce. You are loved by more people then you know.  You'll always be with people who have known you.

Happy birthday, greatest of all commissioners! I still can't thank you enough for how you made my first race here possible when I signed up in the last half hour before the race... It's been one year now in this wonderful league which wouldn't be what it is without its admirable administration. Thank you for everything, Bruce, I hope you have had a nice birthday so far! :)

ok.. the day is almost over, but i can say w/out doubt its been spectacular!
the well wishes here, extra kinds words of genuine good feelings - makes it seem like my life has done some little good - "always leave more than you take" or something along those lines.

i will tell you, some already know - but my interest in F1 came about in around '62 and that thru my love on Indy500 ('57) when i thought Indy was the ONLY race. when i heard of F1 it was ABC's Wide World of Sports that showed Monaco .... a month AFTER the race and then only 1 hour of race highlights!  

but it was the international aspect that really drew me in.Just imagine a world where people from all corners of the globe (corners?) would come together and work/play together w/ a passion for a similar interest.
That gentlemen has been the core of my reasoning/development of oAo.

Age?  you're right ZZ, i'm not feeling what was once considered 'old'  :)   diet/exercise/stress free life (mostly) and above all a good woman who loves me and ALL my idiosyncrasies (you ask, "you have more"?)
yep... be it loud music of a variety, baseball (every nite of season) GPL (loud) again.. i tell it here when from our 20 foot distant man cave to her she shed, i ask "is this too loud?" and her reply "no - i like it - turn it up!"   .... and of course being blessed.

So a birthday a happy life and people like you makes for a most satisfying day ~ month ~ year ~ etc.  May you all ALSO be so enriched!~

Thanks for sharing boss! You are a blessed man. Apart from being such a great commisioner, you are always sincerely interested in the other person, and a great listener.

Thanks for your support, it is appreciated very much! :)

Happy belated Birthday Bruce !!!!!!

Same for me, when all my friends where watching Nascar and drag racing in the early "70 I was waiting for  "Wide World of Sports" for the F1 races !!!

I remember, always a couple of weeks to a month later, Monaco GP, England either at Brands or Silverstone, USA GP at The Glen and of course the Canadian GP at Mosport; then Gilles Villeneuve signed with Ferrari so for the 1978 season, we Canadians saw most if not all races, generally the next week end !

Happy times...

Trivia :  Bo, do you remember "Wide World of Sports"  theme ??? (if you don't, answer at the bottom lol) and the quote :

"The thrill of victory... and the agony of defeat "

Regards

Alain

PS next time I go to Indiana, I will make sure to reserve some time to finally meet you !!
