    thanks to you, it made getting here a day early worth it. Dungey was quite the spokesman, if nothing else for himself. But as the crowd wasn't huge, he seemed to be in no big hurry and spent at least 10 minutes chatting with each group. having shaken lot's of pro racers hands I'm always interested in their hands. Emig as slight as he is had strength just ozzing from his forearm when you shook his hand, you could feel it. Dick Mann even at his age had a firm grip and his hand felt like it had spent a lifetime (it had) wrapped around a piece of steel bar.

    Dungey has HUGE hands, just huge. When you shake his hand and you're aware of it you feel your hand become engulfed in his. Not front page New York Times information but I got a kick out of it.

    ps. Red Bull picked up $15 of everyones tab, excluding alcohol.:clap

    For a guy that was off the radar as an amateur he has certainly done well for himself!

    Very cool, flug! :thumb

    Dungey has certainly made a fan out of me. I have stated before that, from an aesthetic point of view, he is my favorite to watch. His speed and lines and fluidity are like art, IMHO.

    It is always nice to hear what racers are really like in a relaxed environment.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Dungey is a sincere down to earth kind of guy and that makes him a popular rider...my favourite rider!

    I took the stadium tour today. stunning facility. 1.2 billion dollars. that TV cost 40 million. that TV weighs more than a 747 full of people. there are 360 suites/luxury box's in the stadium. there are 3200 Sony HD flat screens in the stadium. the stadium is built around the 2 bananna shaped arches therefore no interior columns and all 80,000 seats have an unobstructed view of the field. when the roof is closed it's always 72 degrees. the stadium can withstand 150 mph winds. those arches are anchored to L shaped anchors that go 70 feet down and 100 feet further out. I assume concrete. there are 3 different playing surfaces that get rolled up in 5 yard swaths. 1 soccer, one college football, one pro football. tell me why you need 2 different football playing surfaces and win a secret prize.:wink:

    the stadium website says you can bring in a camera as long as the lens is less than 3 inches.

    they told me today they measure. :huh

    luckily I brought my 50mm prime that thing is tiny so I can get the camera in.

    tonight I was practicing walking around my hotel room with my 17-35 wide angle stuffed up my crotch nice and tight. it should work. that will take the killer shots with the crazy lights. I brought my 70-200 zoom but I don't think it's worth trying to get in. even if I did get it in (impossible) I was told there are people up in the dome who watch EVERYTHING. I don't want to get told to leave if they spotted the big lens.
