Okay, wrong motorsport, but I have excellent news. The Canadian Grand Prix is back baby. Back and better than ever. Better than ever because there was no Canadian Grand Prix in 2009. This is the first year I have not been to a Grand Prix since 2003. I know, poor pitiful me.
But all that is going to change. Bernie Ecclestone, AKA the Toxic Vampire has signed a long-term contract with the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal, and we are good to go. I already have my tickets. Well, I don’t actually have them in my hands, but I have placed my order and I have my receipt. So I’m sure we will have them soon, but hopefully not too soon. The longer I have them in my possession, the more likely I am to lose them.
We have tickets and we have hotel reservations. Now we need plane tickets. Oooh, I am so excited!
Here’s the best part. I have not mentioned this, but Fernando Alonso, the lovely and talented Fernando Alonso will be driving for Ferrari next year. I just happen to know where the Ferrari team stayed in Montreal last time. Perhaps I will have to spend some of my weekend hanging out in front of that particular hotel. That way I can hyperventilate and lose the power of speech when he walks in and out of the building. Doesn’t that sound like fun? You know, Tom didn’t think so either.
