But then a little voice said "Charlie, what are you fooking stupid, you don't give up any home field advantage! Fooking crazy talk! This is racing we're talking about!"
"You kiss your mother with that mouth? But I guess you're right Pat" I replied.
The true spirit of sportsmanship is also contingent on who has done their homework and is best prepared. To triumph over one environment and opponents. I wouldn't want to take that away from anyone, but since I was going to lay it on the line, here's "Lay It on The Line" by Canada's own Terry Malloy, Triumph.
