What a way to end my week. This afternoon I turned around to see this...

As you can imagine, I got very excited. This person had been clocked at over 110 mph at some points. The chase had only been going on for 20 minutes when FoxNews picked it up, so I figures we had at least another 45 minutes to an hour of quality car chase.

But then, this person got of the highway and ended up in downtown L.A. The person stopped at lights to allow cross traffic to safely cross before continuing. At one point, I even saw a turn signal indicating their desire to take a left hand turn. I kept holding out that they'd get back on the highway until the car pulled over, the driver pulled the keys out of the ignition and opened the door. Then the driver stepped out of the car, was handcuffed and walked to the police cruiser....

Needless to say she seemed a bit embarrassed. Shep Smith said this was only the second woman he's seen as the driver leading a chase.

All in all the chase was covered for 10 minutes. I was very disappointed, but perked up a little when one Fox correspondent said the chase may have been a drill. Shep later reported that the chase started from an unsafe lane change and speed. This lady covered 83 miles in 25 minutes. That's speed the Elsea men would be proud of.

Hopefully the upcoming weekend is a bit more enjoyable then the anticlimactic start it got off to.

Tonight should not disappoint. My brother's football team is playing Lutheran East from Cleveland. My dad is an alum and well, they're Lutheran. I can't wait to see the look on Mark's face when his sister and brother-in-law show up in the visiting team's shirt.
