I haven’t even watched the Atlanta race yet (thank goodness for DVRs apparently I won’t be watching it because my DVR decided to ignore my command to record the race this morning. Bad DVR- No biscuit) but as I told Misty on the phone earlier…never in my life has a 3rd place finish put me in such a good mood as Tony’s finish today in Atlanta!

Because it’s the first day back to the grind after a three-day weekend, my morning at work was kind of crazy busy. Add into the mix the fact that I forgot to charge my phone last night so I knew I didn’t have enough battery to use the Sprint Cup Mobil ap to listen. And my evil computer at work is 6 years old and slowly dying so multitasking right now is not it’s strong suit. Really the only thing I did during the race is during lulls at work there were times I could coax my dying computer to bring up NASCAR.COM’s leaderboard. The first several times I peeked Tony was somewhere in the top 10. Yey Tony. Then I peeked and he was somewhere in the teens and the race was red flagged. Then I peeked again and he was 25th.
