"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."
Well, back on an actual Tuesday again! We're a hateful buch of car nerds, as last week's "Cars you hate" thread saw >100 responses.
This week, let's get the bragging and whatever the opposite of bragging is. What is the FASTEST car you've owned/driven/ridden in (whatever makes the best story) and similary, what is the SLOWEST? Slow could mean your jalopy, or that 48 HP Austin Healey that's so fun at the limit... despite the limit being low.
Let's hear about the fast and the slow
I thought it might be interesting to see how people weigh their loyalties to the various teams they follow.
If you want something a little more concrete, rank the teams you follow in order of how happy you would be if they won a championship. I'm thinking specifically pro and college big 4 sports teams, but feel free to throw in national teams or non-revenue sports teams as well if that's your bag.
1. Michigan Basketball
Spending the late 90s and early 00s as the only UM basketball fan in my school was tough, but that makes the current success that much better.
2a. Indiana Pacers
Indiana kid's gonna Indiana. I spend about 5 minutes as part of my morning routine seething about the fact Reggie Miller(and Austin Croshere) never got a ring, but I have that slight disdain for pro sports holding be back from calling them #2 alone.
2b. Michigan Football
I had the great pleasure of getting into sports right after UM won the football title in 97, so I haven't gotten the good pleasure of enjoying a championship as it happened.
4. Indianapolis Colts
Of course the team I care least about is the only one that has won a championship while I've been following them. All hail St. Peyton. All hail St. Andrew.
5. Any team representing the USA in international competition.
Share yours so that I know who to downvote reflexively if you like teams that I don't.
The trailer for the latest 007 installment has been released. Daniel Craig reprises his role as Bond in Spectre. The movie is scheduled for release on November 6.

Hey, it's actually tuesday!
Per a great suggestion from "A Different Jason" this week let's get the hate out there. What car (s) do you absolutely HATE? Maybe you bought the wrong vehicle, maybe that rental you had for a week was the worst thing ever, maybe that car just has a stupid look on its stupid car face.
Let's hear the hate. The less rational the better.
