Well, now that we've been subjected to all of that INDY-cent exposure, let's pull the shade on that tepid titillation and find something else to occupy our time. I mean, if I see the number 50 or here the word, "Indy" one more time, I'll completely lose it. "Lose it" as in watching a "Survivor" marathon, start a family, go to church,  tongue-hockey with a monkey, voting. Okay, enough already.

I've got time on my hands and it's all for you. Just see below.
