Greetings from some terrible airport hotel in Eugene, Oregon … where I’m currently stuck. Indefinitely. How this came to be is not important. Equally unimportant is the delay of this week’s Willy T. Ribbs Report. It will certainly not be up today, although not for a lack of trying. For you see, where I was on Saturday did not have [...]
You know how typical IndyCar mailbags are all “informative” and “coherent” and “fact-based?” Booooooooo!, right? Right. Well fret no more.

Colts. Jets. AFC Championship Game. It’ll be mayhem on a grand scale, and the Pagoda is closed today. My apologies. Oh, and the city burns at 7:00 EST. Years of Indy 500 debauchery have prepared me for today, and they’ve prepared me well. Today will be an apocalyptic free-for-all in Downtown Indy where there are no laws [...]
