Earlier today I mentioned the rain-slicked Formula 1 racing at the Japanese Grand Prix (see below) just outside of Tokyo last Sunday. Those guys, unlike the NASCAR boys, will race in almost any kind of weather. And those photos of the cars zooming around the track with rain water flying everywhere are always a cool site to behold. However, those on-the-track images aren't the best photos that came out of the race. I prefer this image of Japanese umbrella girls -- actually they're called race queens -- standing by in case they're needed. Very sexy! With that I say, good night everybody and have a great weekend. …and, rain or shine, enjoy the games!
UPDATE: I just realized this is my 100th post to the sports/weather blog. That's a bit of a milestone, right? Right! Especially for a part-time, novice blogger such as me.
UPDATE #2: I know I said the above were my last words here for the day, but I just found a really cool photo you should see heading into this weekend's college football schedule. The photo is of Kelsi Metzler, a University of Oregon cheerleader, posing with an umbrella as part of a photo shoot for SI.com. Metzler is the Web site's Cheerleader of the Week. You can see the entire 18-picture gallery here, beginning with the umbrella pic. Be sure to check out photo one. Metzler makes those hideous Oregon football jerseys look nice while rocking a super-tight tummy and some really tight jeans. Go Ducks!
Ok, that's it for today. I promise.
