I like it when they give up respect after a kill.

Always makes it a little sweeter, and I usually make it a point to give a thumbs up or something if the tables are turned. I enjoy having a little fun from time to time, and don't think I drive an unbeatable racecar haha Expect to get my ass handed to me as often as I hand others theirs.

That's just the homer meatballs.

While its always good to see a divisional foe lose a game regardless of who it is, I have some concerns that will be alleviated or resolved as the season progresses for the Bears as a result of this game.

If we can objectively accept that GB on paper is one of the NFC's elite, and the Bears, while improved were in the next tier and therefore GB was favored to win the division....despite two losses I am not convinced that they still won't.

They have at least split the season series with the Bears to this point. One of their losses was to the other NFC elite team SF. And the other was last night's debacle on the road to a pretty solid team in a place that is difficult to play. So, I still think that they are really good and still likely better than the Bears who looked lack luster against the pitiful Rams.

The Bears still have yet to play SF or SEA or AZ and have to play GB again. Those are some tough games whereever they are played. GB has already proven they can beat the bears (repeatedly), without their best receiver no less. Let's not ignore MIN right now either.

So unless the bears win the division, which I don't foresee, they are fighting with GB/MIN and SEA for playoff spots...therefore SEA getting another conference win is not a good thing for our beloved necessarily...even if over GB.

Well GB played pretty bad last night anyway, it should not of come down that play anyway...

I agree on the on the"enjoyed the race" gestures, win or lose, a simple nod of the head, thumbs up or just a smile is all you need to say, hey, I like to have fun with my car and glad you do too...

For sure, I think we had a little extra love for eachother since we were both driving the special blue colors of our respective cars

Was scheduled for a 1:30 phone interview, 2:55 now and still no call. Although the guy who is supposed to be calling is in the middle of traveling and would be making the call from an airport or something so maybe he got held up. Don't have a number for him so time to call HR I guess.

Also in 3+ years of ownership I can count maybe 2-3 people who have ever wanted to run me on the street.

Well I do have Canflap always open w/JB4. I seem to get a fair number, probably done it3 or 4 times since I got the car about a month ago. I don't go out of my way for it, and generally dont bother unless it is something I think would be fun and a good race.

I have also seen the FR-S up close and really like it's lines as well. Only problem is they are both slow as balls. If they get their shit together and throw a snail on that thing for another ~$3-4k it would be an amazing weekend car.

This has been done. There is someone already running 11.3 with just a turbo intake and exhaust. 400whp or so. There is a shop in franklin park that has a full turbo kit for 5k running e85 and it put out just over 400whp as well. It is a pretty cool little car. I like the brz alot more than the frs but both pretty cool light cars
