Susan

The (Only) Cheerleader

My connection to the team: My dad

 

OK, so I'm not technically on the team, but I'm the only female in any way connected to these guys who even wants to go to the race.  So, I figured that I'd be the official team cheerleader.  Maybe I'll wear a mini-skirt and carry pom-poms, but don't get your hopes up.  In fact,  in my 25 years on this planet, I don't think I've ever owned or worn a mini-skirt.  

But I digress.  

I thought that this page needed a woman's touch, but it sure as hell isn't going to get it from me.  You see, I'm an engineer like the rest of these guys, only I design boats instead of train parts.  

I live in Washington, DC and to avoid paying $600 in plane fares,  I'm going to have to drive down for the race weekend.  This is tougher than it may seem.  There is no good way to get to the race track in SC from DC, and with gas being like $10 a gallon,  there are definite obsticles to my going to the race.  So even though I'm immortalizing myself forever in cyberspace, I may not even make it.  We'll see... (more to come, depending on whether or not my boss comes to work today.)
