    Anyone follow Formula 1?

    I'm generally a motorsports fan, but I just can't get into F1. Since much of the race schedule was canceled last year, rather than watch drivers play video games, I watched the entire WEC season 2019, including all 24 hrs of Le Manns. I found that to be very interesting. F1, however, should...

    COVID-19 vaccine, you getting it?
