This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

3) Ryan Briscoe, #6 enelson (16)


Check him out on Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryan_Briscoe

He runs for Penske and, well, that is all I know about him...but I do like Briscoe County Jr!!! Great TV show!

Go Ryan! Go Racer X!

Rather than ship my first place prize to me, I'll pick it up at GenCon and buy you a cold beverage Zachary the First!

Well....my driver's never won a race, so maybe this is his time. Of course...he's only placed 2nd 3 times in his career in ANY race, so eh.

Yeah, but he's a fan fave, and another veteran.  He also spent a year in a wheelchair before getting back into an IndyCar.  So you know he has cajones.

Here's a sample of a start from a few years ago (I wish the video quality was better), starting with Jim Nabors singing "Back Home Again in Indiana", followed by the famed starting command.  Then the cars all start up, which is awesome.  You really cannot believe how freakin' LOUD the cars are.   Then, they all get up to speed, and it sounds a little like a TIE fighter squadron screaming by. :)

Most people in today's world do have cajones, Zach.  It's typically where they keep a lot of their stuff.

Oh!  Perhaps you meant cojones?  No, I'm not linking a picture of those.  Nossir.

Yeah, spelling in any language is not my strong suite.  I'll have to tell my old Spanish teacher when I run into her about that one.  

Let us close a curtain of charity over the rest of this scene, and go to the new thread. :cheers:

You can say "cojones" or "huevos".

In Andalucia, they said "huevos" and some other word I don't remember.
