Guardian of The Brickyard

Bookmark and Share


Chris Pratt, star of the new Guardians of the Galaxy is at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway today to lead the cars around driving the Chevy pace car. Pratt is new to NASCAR but stated he is looking forward to leading the cars around the track. Pratt told a room of reporters that he is looking forward to being signed by NASCAR after his laps leading the 37 cars around the track today for the Brickyard 400. He was amazed at how smooth his ride was around the track going what he said was a slow 120 mph.

Chris Pratt who is also a star of the show Parks and Recreation set in a fictional city in Indiana has been to the Hoosier state once before. Parks and Recreation filmed a show at Lucas Oil Stadium with several members of the Indianapolis Colts and he was on the field playing catch with Andrew Luck.
On a professional note for Pratt, he is looking forward to playing the hero character like his character, the Star Lord of the new movie Guardians of the Galaxy. He stated that the film has just confirmed their 2nd movie in the series. The Guardians of the Galaxy premieres this Friday, August 1st.
Be sure to watch to see if Christ Pratt makes the turnoff in the pace car today or keep the car on the track and prove his driving skills to NASCAR.

Pacer NBA Playoffs 2014

Josh Elmore
(2 Dollar Bill Josh)

Remember back at the ALL STAR BREAK

The  Indiana Pacers were a league best 33-7?

All the talk around the NBA was how the Indiana Pacers were the best team in the league,and how they would finally eliminate the Miami Heat and reach the 2014 NBA finals.

Then came the trade deadline and Larry legendary Bird just couldn’t help himself but to make a trade. He sent former all star Danny Granger to Philly for Evan Turner. On paper it seems like a great trade. But on the court it just isn’t working since the trade The Pacers are 24-21.

Any talk of the Indiana Pacers beating the Heat now seems like a joke. The chemistry,the trust,the togetherness of the Indiana Pacers just isn’t there anymore. I mean they are the number 1 seed and have gotten beaten soundly twice by the number 8 seed Atlanta Hawks.

I think its time For Frank Vogel the head coach, Roy Hibbert the all star center to go. Its just not working anymore.

Now Pacer fans will say I am overreacting. But its been almost 2 full months since the trade deadline and its clear the Pacers cant get back to where they were and its sad.

Pacers fans when we get knocked out by the Hawks make sure to thank Larry legendary Awful Bird for his stupid trade idea and for ruining what would have been a championship season here in Indiana.

Autism Awareness Night with the Tribe

Bookmark and Share

April is Autism Awareness Month. Saturday night was Autism Awareness night at Victory Field.
The Indianapolis Indians may have lost the game against the Louisville Bats but the won the hearts of their fans and the Autism Community.

By partnering with Damar Services to both raise awareness of Autism and highlight groups working to create autism-friendly environments on Autism Awareness Night at Victory Field on Saturday, April 19.

Tribe Autism

The Tribe wore special jerseys with the autism awareness puzzle piece logos embroidered on each sleeve. Fans had the opportunity to bid on these one-of-a-kind jerseys worn by their favorite Indians players and coaches, with proceeds benefiting autism parent training and Parent Night Out programs.”

The Balance was proud to be covering this game. We would love to join forces and do our part in Autism Awareness Month. Unaware about what it means to be autistic, what sorts of challenges and difficulties it poses. What sort of joys and happiness it can bring. How vast the autism spectrum is, and how each autistic individual, each autism family’s journey is unique to them.

I was touched by the Young Kids with Autism who threw the first pitch. Thanks to The Indianapolis Indians that young man will have a memory that will last a life time.

Be sure to catch the Hot Corner This Thursday Evening at 7:00 EST, and we will break down The Tribe and all the Action in The International League in the MLB and MiLB

dale-earnhardt-sr-nascarIt’s that time of year again. The Daytona 500, “The Great American race” The Grand Daddy of them all …Whatever label you put on it, it is a special place in the hearts of the most passionate fan base in the world. NASCAR fans…and with this passion comes loyalty, to their favorite driver, their sponsors but most importantly their favorite #!

No number is more famous than the #3 car. Even if your not a NASCAR fan chances are you can tell me who drove the #3. Around the world there are thousands of places regarded as sacred. Some are still carefully guarded but none more so than #3 in the hearts and minds of NASCAR fans. Some would say The number 3 should NEVER EVER be used in NASCAR again. It belongs to Dale Sr.! Dale Earnhardt  Considered one of the best NASCAR drivers of all time, Dale Earnhardt won a total of 76 races Earnhardt — known as “The Intimidator” for his aggressive driving — won seven Winston Cup Championships and broke $30 million in career earnings. He died in a crash during the 2001 Daytona 500.

So this year Richard Childress Racing brings back the #3 and maybe the ghost of the Intimidator…. Austin Dillion that’s right the grandson of  Richard Childress has taken the pole of Daytona 500 many may say it was the Ghost of Dale Senior driving the #3…

So what are your thoughts is the #3 sacred or just another number?

Join us tomorrow on the Balance and we will be opening this up for discussion…

Great conversation with Evan Williams from Purdue University, Evan is one of our college basketball contributors. Evan was on campus this week during the campus shooting that claimed the life of Andrew Boldt, 23. Evan was in his fraternity house and was safe however he was able to give us the student point view. Evan also gave a great perspective of Boiler Basketball this year, and today’s top 25 games

Walt Ferber from WITZ/WQKZ RADIO gave us look at this weeks IU/Illinois game. The question was asked is Coach Crean the right guy for Indiana. As good of a coach as coach Crean is can he lead the Hoosiers to a “MARCH DANCE” What are you thoughts? I agree with Walt “he may not be the best, but who could be better”?
