"Magnate Annapolis Motor Speedway. It takes an army to properly covered this event, and we have that red Rakestraw Kurt Darling Brennan King. We will hear from Jake weary as well as Donald Davidson. Likely we'll hear from the star of the day, which is Elio Castro Neves. The star of the day is all of us. We deserve this man After the last 15 months to have this glorious of a race day, and this unique and dramatic of a finish, 35 lead changes today 13 different race leaders, just two yellow flag periods and 76 laps of green to finish the race. The fastest ever. And the 100 now 11 year. History of the events. Average speed for the winner 1 90.69. Oh, let us welcome a man that was a star of our coverage All month long. He and Jake weary did beyond the bricks every weeknight eight. Your remark walls coverage last weekend is joining us via the phone lives star buddy Mike Thompson. Good afternoon, my friend. I know you are all smiles any time. There is a race here Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but especially on one Mike. We're so much history was made in one day. Oh, absolutely. And the first thought I had after the race was, you know, there's a famous quote that Alistair Jr said, You know, you just don't know what Indy means. But I think when do you see what happened after the race and the emotion and the just the raw energy from the fans and the raw energy from Elio and his crew and so many people coming? That's what Indy means. That's that's right there. It encompasses everything. That's exactly what it means. When you see so many people coming that congratulate Elio and Mario coming over and giving him the kiss on the head and So many of Helios competitors coming over to congratulate him and the fans, you know, well after the race is over, still climbing the fence tow give their congratulations. That's what Indy means. I mean, that encompasses it all, doesn't it? I think at least so let's let's think about just just let's let's think about the amount of people though, that have seen Elia Race here because again he has now been In 21 consecutive Indy five hundred's. He is in the top 10 in terms of all time experience here. In fact, he has the third most miles completed on Lee behind A. J and Al Sr Hey is tied for eighth. I believe in terms of number of five hundred's competed in when it comes to 21. Oh, yes. He has now won four of them. So you have multiple generations of Indy fans and those if you're 25 years of age, all you know is basically A little cash for damages. Gonna win or come darn close to winning and Indianapolis 500 your thoughts about kind of the role that he has played these last two decades as a champion and ambassador for the sport might Always an outstanding ambassador, but I think especially over the last few years. He's even gained more fans that that's possible because he's come so close to that fourth win. You remember that great Julie had with Ryan Hunter. Randy was so close and you so disappointed and not get that win. And then you know, coming up just short against Takuma Sato into comas first win, and then he had a couple of lean years, the last couple years with Penske and you remember, he almost. I don't want to say bag, but he almost begged for another chance. You know, with with Roger when it looked like, you know, when we knew he wasn't coming back as a full time driver anymore with Penske. He almost kind of begged. Hey, I want another shot at this. And you know you knew that it was. You know, time was running out with Helios, the full time driver, but you do. We knew we had the skills we knew he had the ability to still be a in victory lane. But I think there's he's gained even more fans over the last few years with this pursuit of four wins, But I think the story lines today were so interesting because you know, sometimes we we kind of create these story lines going in in our heads that it's going to be the young guns against Against the wily vats. And sometimes maybe those won't play out. I mean, but they did today, didn't they? I mean, we had the young guns against the wily That's all day and we had such a great story and in counter Daly, leading and in front of his home fans in the home fans getting, you know, tear the roof off the place, basically cheering for Connor and tear the roof off the place for a Leo and so You know some of the story lines that we had going into the month. You know, we thought Scott Dixon was going to be unbeatable and Scott Dicks and he led briefly or else you would have had two years in a row or the pole sitter didn't even lead a lap later on in the race. Scott did lead, but You know, just amazing story lines. I think all day today, up and down, up and down the grid. No one can give a 30,000 ft view like J query does, And he often has that view at the top of Turn three for the Indy car radio network as Per usual, my friend, great job by you and all of your colleagues and I guess just first impressions and you start to try toe encapsulate what This race is all about today. I think the thing Greg that jumps out to me is this and I want to make it. There are people that are far more articulate than I can say this and express it and I know it's a point that's been expressed by a lot of them. But the number one question I get asked when people find out that I worked for IndyCar. I'm around a lot is Azalea Castor. Never really like that. The answer is resoundingly. Yes. You know, it was just very fitting. I think in a race where We were in a race to return to everybody, just wanting to feel normal again and wanting to feel like things were going to be okay. And therefore it was very fitting to kind of turn back the clock a little bit. And just feel like we have felt so many times before. And what better way to do that? To see a guy that now has one in three different decades. I guess you'd say I mean, we'll know I'm trying to think. Now, too, right? Correct. He's one of two different decades, but he has won over the course already, So, yeah. So you know, there was a lot about it that you had the love. No, you know. Quite simply. It was an interesting race because the two that appeared to be I really did think that You know, Scott Dixon was such a clear favorite and then Heard advocate looks so strong. Obviously just things come into play. I mean, you forget that it's a 500 mile race. I mean, it really is a race of endurance. Even still today with the technology is it is and the advancements made there of where it's not necessarily You know, it's not like the 19 teens where cars going, 500 Miles is unbelievable, but Still, there are factors that come into play so In the end, though, it just kind of felt like Greg. It ended out being as it should, with Castor never swimming it. Yes, that really is what he's like. There are 22 of those cars by the way that lasted 500 miles. Today, we will step aside for just a moment. We'll have some finally crafted commercial messages, but just as finally crafted as the latest traffic.

"The creation of the worldwide radio network, Collins became known across the globe even to a young man in England who followed the race on radio. Speedway historian Donald Davidson. Anyway, I knew who said college Wass and I heard the voice. But that's not what got me interested. But after a couple of years and I knew now that I was Well more than a couple of years, But when I knew that I was Ah! I'm going to make the trip. Then I reached out to him by by writing a fan later and explain it, though I would be coming and had all this interest and wondered if I'm you know, could I volunteered to be part of the broadcast as a spotter or a runner or something? And so I didn't get a reply right away. So I did a follow up on Then I got a response from him. And then there was a photo in there. Eight by 10 glossy. With him with a mic and it was to my British fan Donald or something like that about them when I showed up. And and, Ah, You know, he but by no means that did he invite me or did anybody else I mean, I've flat came And then when I showed up finally than all of these magic things happen in 1976 following the shortest Indianapolis 500 on record ended by rain after just 102 labs. The voice of the 500 closed the race broadcast with a poem and closing thought before signing off, but another icy Indiana winter will come and go. And before we know it, springtime returns, it will be made on the roar of engines but once again breathe life into the lazy Who's your sky and bring us back together? God willing, I'll be here to greet you. For this.

"Much. And Jim Rathmann, of course, is a very quiet type of guy. And he didn't sound too excited, but I know of it inside. He was thrilled to pieces to win the 500 mile race after such a long, illusive period of time he was raising here back in 1949. He came in 11 fastest drivers test that year. I'll recap Rathbun's career and give you more information about the standings of all of our finishers in just one minute. Now, stay tuned for the greatest spectacle in racing. You may have heard someone until Rathmann Ford ran out of gas. But that's not why he slowed late in the race. Speedway historian Donald Davidson Ward actually lead 1 96 or 1 97 I think I did, but it was late in the race that he actually lead, but by that time He's looking to the right front tire on the chords are showing through, You know, a little bit of discoloration on it's starting to turn. You know you could see the white cords coming through. That's not a good thing. And I think just about just about any other driver would have come in to buy a guitar a change, But Ward was a long time for a stone test driver. And I don't know whether he done there said in entire tests or what, but he had enough knowledge or savvy or or, you know, aptitude if you like. To say I could slow down because now we've got a pretty good lead over what is now third, which was Paul Goldsmith, and I don't know what that was, like, 30 seconds or something. Now we could slow down. And so what he did was to you know, Wrath when they went by goes onto the wind welders when and Ward came across. Against the inside.

"As part of the centennial celebration Donald Davidson helped organize a gathering of living former five hundred drivers the day before the race the dream was to get as many five hundred printer supplies as we possibly could and I think it was wouldn't it be great if you could organize some photographs and just have all these people and and they all have something in common that they drove in the five hundred so it was pulled off it personally I wish we had if we just had a few moments extra we had a hundred and sixty one drivers in the shot during the mind play take we have a hundred seventy five approximately but then on that particular day if we could have frozen at and had like ten fifteen minutes to work we probably could have got another half a dozen because Michael Andretti was on the grounds and have sponsor issues we didn't get Sam Schmidt during daily had to be downtown because he was doing the parade and there was a couple of others that were not there for one reason or another so with a little luck we could add a few more but even so though to have one hundred and sixty one people lined up there twenty one years no interlopers everybody in that one sixty one pro with the five hundred coming up on five hundred and sixty number two what is Memorial Day means to me Los many brothers overseas it's not just a day for barbecues Morial day may feel a little different this year it is no less important than any other year as we honor the sacrifice of our fallen heroes memorial day is a time honored those service persons who have given their lives for free a moment to remember this is ninety three W.

"You something is wrong like. Don't keep putting pressure on on that foot or something. Yeah, so I, I thought that was interesting in point and it was. It's interesting to think about. The role of natural selection to what extent might have played in the placebo effect, and in our ability to self deceive about a about the curative properties of various a non curative methods. Well, obviously, our brains have evolved to to be easily deceived in certain scenarios, and it's interesting to study what those scenarios are and try to figure out what. Would driven that? Yeah, so obviously one way they work is sometimes we can generate a kind of confidence that overcomes negative physiological feedback. Yeah, and there must I mean you can imagine scenarios where that's also adaptive. Obviously, you don't want to just be ignoring pain, because pains, useful information, but on the other hand you want the body to have some kind of override mechanism for say. Say when maybe maybe your foot pain, you shouldn't be putting pressure on it, but There's a tiger and you've got to run right now. Obviously, it would not be advantageous for the body to just insist on you staying put even that scenario, and there might be other scenarios other than like immediate physical danger. There might be cases where there are social signals social cues that. Are Natural physiological feedback mechanisms absolutely so I think again coming back to the brundle scenario, you can well imagine someone going through a Pod situation teleporting their body, being destroyed and remade, and then feeling renewed about it, even if nothing has changed there so the same baseline person they were before like I I'm wondering truly. This idea has been explored in science fiction before. Maybe even star Trek fiction like if someone get obsessed with using the. Or that like I'm feeling a little down going through the quarter just going to going to reset for the day like that's better than a quick shower power nap right, but for the rest of the episode. I thought we might explore just A. Relatively briefly I think how going through the teleport or could potentially actually change, you can actually. Alter. Say Your your mind and your mood. Okay, so made some kind of physical change to the body, and now you are now. Brundle fly is different right? Yeah, so I I think one way to look at it of course is neurological, because again the the complexities of teleportation or again just fantastic and and in not really realistic compared to our understanding of science. But like how do you imagine just the the moving of one mind state from from here to there from my brain? To the other Tele Porter well it. teleportation naturally invites questions about the connection between the mind and the physical brain. Yeah, because again you know we were talking earlier about the idea. That teleportation would almost certainly kill you if it could actually be done, and probably can't even be done, but the imagine you could be destroyed down to every last atom disassembled and then. Then rebuilt is a perfect copy somewhere else. What reason do you have to believe that your consciousness would be continued the there instead of just you know lights out? Yeah, this gets into the whole ship. Of theseus. situation right is is the copy of the original etc. Yeah, ooh, and we've talked about this. In previous episodes with like the Donald Davidson, swamp man thought experiment. Where you know you're imagine you are struck by lightning in the swamp, and a atomised in the nearby, a tree get struck by lightning that rearranges its Adams in a way that just happens to be an exact copy of you down to including all of your memories and everything Davidson's question was. Is that still you even if goes and recognizes all your friends and all that, but that those atoms that body has never actually met your friends. Before is just a coincidence. And I guess another question to add on I. Don't think Davidson addresses this is. Is there any reason to think? Your consciousness would continue in that other thing I don't know if we have any reason to say, it would yeah. Glad. You brought up. The lightning because brings brings me to the next point in order to make is that? Assuming you're the same person in telepathic. Be The urine pot a and assuming that for the most part there are no changes one way that you could see like an alteration in mood or personality is if there was some imperfection in the copy, say in it essentially damaged your brain in some in some fashion in reproducing you on the other side, and we have plenty of examples of this in science, we've discussed numerous cases on the show before were brain, injuries and alterations to the brain can impact mood in one of my favorite, and also I think it's great, because it's kind of. It's essentially a positive tale of this sort of thing. Is, the, Nineteen ninety-four case of Dr Tony An orthopedic surgeon who was electrocuted in a lightning strike, and then afterwards began to hear music and his head, and developed a what has been described as an insatiable desire to learn to up to learn. Listen to the piano and learned to play the piano. And then he eventually became a composer and performer with. Did He di Di? Di In the? Very much alive, still okay, yeah, wait! I, have I may be using this word wrong. Does electrocuted necessarily mean you died Ooh? Good question, perhaps from using the word wrong. Oh, perhaps I've been using it wrong I don't know I always assumed electrocuted dead, but. Just in case to be sure he was he. He suffered an electric shock. The lightning strike yes, did not die, but afterwards, yeah, he heard music in his head. He wanted to play the piano. He learned to play the piano. He became a composer. and. Cool, yeah, he's. He's written books. I understand he's what's sometimes referred to as an acquired savant someone who exhibits extrordinary abilities after sustaining central nervous system, gamage or disease. Now, of course, this is not the only case of somebody going through a large electrical stimulation of the nervous system, and coming out of it feeling better, this is actually I know. A electroshock therapy gets bad reputation in fiction and. And stuff, but for some people it is actually a very helpful intervention for say a depression that resists other treatments. Right you know sometimes there are brain states that are very negative where electroconvulsive therapy applying an electric current to the brain causes some kind of internal reset that gets people out of negative mental scenarios. Yeah, so you could. You could imagine as long as we're imagining teleportation. Imagine a situation where in recreating the brain were in the process of the brain coming back online in pod be. The essentially have It's like an electric shock to the brain. And then of course, there are plenty of other examples of people whose moods personalities and cognitive. have been impacted in many cases negatively impacted by changes or injuries to to the brain, so see I think there's a lot of room for that scenario to to take place again if if you actually teleportation technology. An to come back to the microbiome I think that's another place to consider so. Assuming that you don't have your entire microbiome. Fused with your genetic code, assuming that you're microbiome is not dumped out into another pod. Left to just sort of melt on the floor and have to be scrubbed up by the pod scrubber when a job. Yeah, imagine what else could happen right like what is it just readjusted your your micro by on to a certain degree because we know. We're still learning more about this, but we know that the microbiome has. Has An impact on our on our personality on mood on our cognitive ability like it's, it's it's roots. Run Deep. Yes, end there are ways to have a healthier or less healthy microbiome I mean again. We already referenced fecal transplants, and this is an actual cure for some diseases. Yeah, so you could potentially you could have a situation where okay the teleport didn't quite know how to how to handle the entire microbiome, some things maybe through some things were left out I don't want to even explore the possibility of some individual microorganisms being fused into all new microorganisms. because..

I just remember thinking, I wonder if apologies gonna get some flack over the fact that he, you know. Would seemingly pushed him. But he did. I don't think he really did. They just bumped wheels on of course, the speed you lose Asian, and you're not going to say it Unser junior was uninjured in the hard crash and still finished second two laps down as he contemplated coming so close to winning the race. He also contemplated. What gesture he wanted to give the man who did win it when I got out of the car. It was you know, I stood there for a minute.

"Down in hard to follow details. There's nothing wrong with this in principle. Indeed, one of philosophy's highest callings is finding ways of helping people. See the forest and not just the trees, but intuition pumps are often abused though seldom deliberately, of course, dinner. Itself has has played with thought experiments before. Absolutely. This only reminded of the almost kind of a little short story wrote about those that a robot with the human brain wonderful. Yes. The where am I think it was called? Oh, so dim. It is as he says, they're certainly not opposed to thought experiments, but he he points out. I think quite correctly that sometimes they they actually confuse more than they illuminate. Whether that's true of the ones he himself has put together. It's it's hard to say. I mean, a lot of times the benefits of these physics thought experiments as we've been saying is you can eventually go out and test and see whether they were on the right track or whether they were confused by some, you know, hidden sumptious taken on board. It's harder to do with a lot of these thought experiments about say the physical location of consciousness or something like that. So one example from din, it's book intuition pumps that we talked about in our ship these episode, you remember the swamp, man. Oh, yes. Of course. Yes. Essentially swamp thing from the comic book, right? Yes. So this was an example of you know, it explaining how intuition pumps can go wrong. And again, intuition pumps just thought experiments that that rely on our intuitions don't like take specific data on board. Really? I'll try to very very quick. The example was this guy named Donald Davidson, he was a philosopher. So he said assume lightning strikes me while I'm out walking in the swamp in evaporates, my body, and I'm just going, and then meanwhile, it also strikes a tree next door, and it rearranges that tree into an exact Adam for Adam copy of me with all my memories, and he calls this creature swamp, man. And so he asks is that copy really me Davidson says, you know, is it really friends with my friends, even though it has never met them before. Does it really know what a banana tastes like even though it has never tasted or even touched one? This was offered I think to interrogate the question of how the history of an object. Act is related to the identity of that object is a thing that is an exact copy of you that behaves. Exactly like you. But hasn't been where you've been done what you've done in. What ways is that actually different from you? But didn't response to the story by saying, you know, this thought experiment might not actually reveal all that much and as a point of analogy he asks us to consider the cow shark. So the cow shark again is it's created when a normal cow gives birth to an animal that is atom for atom exactly like a shark that you would find swimming in the ocean. And he asks now is this newborn animal a cow or a shark. Oh, but also take on board that it has cow DNA in all of it sells. Now a question like this. It might do something useful..

"But I, but if you go back and look at you know, Newton and Galileo all this and certainly Einstein. There's no denying that thought experiments have been extremely useful and productive in the history of physics, but thought experiments can sometimes also as we've knowledged be confusing and misleading even though there are other times. Illuminating a favorite of ours on here is of course, Daniel dinner, you know, he likes to highlight the different kinds of thought experiments that try to leverage our intuitions into new discoveries simply by tightly controlling the variables of imagined scenario and some of the most famous thought experiments in history, actually, I think maybe confused more than they illuminate. I don't wanna put words in his mouth. But I think didn't it would say this about Donald Davidson swamp man, which we discussed in our show easiest episode or Searle's Chinese room, which maybe we should come back to now. So we explain Searle's Chinese room earlier with the person exchanging the symbols in the room. And the question of does the person in the room who doesn't speak Chinese but can simulate perfect conversational output in Chinese by following this instruction manual does. That person really understand Chinese and a lot of people have thought. Yeah. This is a powerful disprove of the notion that computers could ever think understand or be conscious? And a lot of other things have been incredibly critical of this an example of a reply the Chinese room that make sense to me is what if what's true of the part might not be true of the system of as a whole. So imagine again this person in the room the person in the room doesn't understand Chinese. And thus the responses they produce are not meaningful to them. But you could argue that the room itself the set of instructions combined with the memories and sensory experiences and logic that went into the creation of the instructions and the human operator and the pencil and paper taken together, perhaps do understand Chinese and Searle rejects this line of thinking one of the reasons is he says, you know, this is a kind of illicit Externalizing of thought saying that like paper could think or a book of instructions could think, but but like I think like he's the person who put this system together, you know, you or the one who put a human inside a room as the. Metaphor for a computer computers. Do not actually have a tiny human inside them. That's performing operations with -tunities to understand or not understand. Likewise. There is not actually a little human sitting inside your brain with the job of understanding or not understanding inputs outputs. Your brain is a system in many ways, you might say that system of your brain. That produces your mind is more comparable to the entire system of the person in the room, the room the instructions and all that than it is just the person inside. I think the evidence is pretty clear that the mind is not one thing. And there's no evidence of an observer within the observer, the mind is at the very least a system of information processing, but also storage inputs outputs all working together. There's not there's no evidence of a pilot inside who does all of the final understanding. Right, right. As simple as it would be imagine that you know because it would. Reduce whatever we're trying to figure out what would reduce it to a person. Yeah. Get back into that that kind of Neolithic mindset. And so I think this no, I certainly don't want to say that that I'm not like casting aspersions on John Searle. I'm sure he is a very brilliant man, much smarter than me. And there's been a lot more complex back and forth on this. But just to somebody who's right about this. Good bit. It seems to me like this is one of those thought experiments that needlessly churns up confusion just by bringing in a lot of unnecessary assumptions in the connotations of the imagery you use in the thing. We've got a person inside a room that is making you think of analogies to a person sitting inside the computer or an observer inside the observer in the brain right now. I do take the problem of consciousness seriously. I'm not one of those people who you know, would hand wave and say, oh, yeah..

"And I sort of lightly brushed against some of the same philosophical questions about the identity of a person through time travel and all that. But I gotta read swamp thing now. Oh, yeah. Well, it's, it's, it's definitely worth checking out. It's probably been a decade since I read all of it, but I did pick up the anatomy lesson and gave it another read in it is indeed wonderful. This is the one that originally hooked me when I when I read it for the first time and I wound up spending way too much money at the time on all of the Alan Moore swamping books. None of them disappointed. But this first story is just perfect. It's a, it's an intelligent little horror story. They've cast the very the very identity of swamp thing. In a new light. So he's not just Alec Holland, a man who is mutated into a plant man following a science lab explosion in the swamp. No is more describes it. The wonder chemical here transforms the plants. And when Holland's burnt corpse sinks into the swamp, the plants, eat it in regrows a body that believes itself to be Alec Holland. Oh, so that Oregon's don't work heart lungs brains, it's all just vegetable matter that has form, but no function. But he believes it is Holland and it is always believed that it is Holland and this is the only thing that has kept the swamp thing saying this whole time. Well, so this Davidson presentation I believe is from the first time he presented, it was in nineteen eighty-seven which is after this. So I think it would have to be that Davidson was inspired by swamp thing and not the other way around. Yeah, I think it might be the case. I did just a little bit of research on this, and I. Not find any definitive statements on inspiration here, but, but it seems like that would be the case. And I think that's great. I suppose we can only wait until the league extraordinary gentlemen show up in the philosophy journals now. Well, I would actually love to see swamp thing and swamp man meet up. I said that sounds like exactly the kind of thing that Allen more could return to right at some point in back. I'm a little surprised. It didn't happen except swamp men would be completely indistinguishable from Donald Davidson. Right. And so it was basically just be Donald Davidson meets swamp thing except it's not the original Donald Davidson? Yes. I mean, it's a weird thing to consider. I I spent a while trying to this is one of those weird kind of thought experiments that pokes you and you have to sit there for a while, thinking like, wait a minute, is this, is this truly illuminating or not? I mean, I I was like trying to decide and I still don't think I've made up my mind, but it is strange. What does it mean to have thought. Because we typically believe that a thought is about something. So say, for example, you have the thought I do not like the smell of hard boiled eggs. We consider it part of the definition of this thought that you're aware of the existence of hard boiled eggs and you have smelled them or at least you think you have and you do not like the smell. But if a being with an atom for atom replica of your brain has that thought. And yet it has never smelled the smell. Is it really having that thought, what is it doing with its brain? It could not be forming that thought from information derived from sense experience that thought when coming from being never seen any evidence of the existence of hard boiled eggs has never smelled them. As a number learned. The words hard boiled eggs or the word smell. The thought is just random behavior, no more significant than a million pages of random numbers printed out on paper. Now the same time, though I can't help, but think that, hey, I could develop a false memory of say, eating a hardboiled ostrich. Which I don't believe I've ever eaten, but I but I can easily imagine where I might tweak my memory into into thinking that I have a likewise, what have I read a very convincing passage in a novel in which a character eats a hardboiled dragon egg. I have no actual since experience of that happening. But if it was well written in of detail and atmosphere than I could, I could very well in a sense experience it in my mind..

"Was the cars coming together i think two of them got together one of them being eddie cheever i saw the sign age on the side of the car and was able to tell that they slammed the wall very hard it appears that one of the cars might have broken up a little bit but it's hard to tell who it was or exactly what happened it happened so quickly scott goodyear is the leader of the race as the field comes down but that really is quite secondary to the seriousness of this accident on lap number one of the ninety five indianapolis five hundred mile race stan fox suffered critical hinge reason of the first lap accident he would survive but never raced again donald davidson on what happened it's never been explained what happened and i think the thinking is that something broke because he went down to the inside and the apex of turn one and then a car immediately snap to the right and then hit the wall and i think as it was hitting the ball then he got nailed by number fourteen foreign car which was eddie cheever and i remember being very happy that cheever in his remarks said there were two things that he said one was that he said i don't know what happened there but something must have happened because stands one of the better drivers out there and then the other thing that he was sorry to be out but he said that he was under the impression that by hitting the car that he'd lessen the blow of fox hitting the wall despite himself with nobody to sort of interfere and deflect the accident if that makes any sense and then he said something like that was my role today than than i happily accepted or something like that which i thought was very very noble and very courteous to say that coming up on five hundred sixty a major story is developing here because the report is that shocked ville new will be penalized for passing the pace car maybe off season for colts fans but it's never off season for the fan listen all summer long as the.
