The Pagentry! The Purdue band playing back home again in Indiana while Jim Nabors sings (It's going to be tape this year, Jim is ill ) The Yard of Bricks. All of the old drivers showing up. Johnny Rutherford, AJ Foyt, The Andretis, Rick Mears, The Unsers (At least the sober ones) Decrepit old Mary Hullman George saying "Gentleman and Ladies start your engines" I'll have watery eyes when Gomer starts to sing. For some reason I always think of my dad at that point, sitting in our back yard in Iowa listening to it on the radio when I was a kid before it was live on TV. I have no big favorites this year. I always root for Franchetti (Starting 8th row) and Tony Kanan (4th row). I'm also a big fan of the Penske drivers. Anybody else even pay attention to it anymore?
