    It's not just us

    I can't find the post now, but I believe someone recently complained that Alexa didn't know when the Indy 500 was. Well, I just asked her when the Daytona 500 was. She correctly said February 17. However, she said it was at 7pm. Oops. (Unless she knows something we don't - like it's going to rain all day.)
    I'm from a place called the internet. Nothing disturbs me.

    Alexa is pretty smart. Last night hanging at my friends, we got into it pretty good, ALEXA, who is the winningest coach in NFL history? Don Shula. 300 some odd wins. Belichick is still down in the 200's.

    Alex did not know the answer, who is the oldest quarterback to play the game?

    Yup, by 4 years (48) over Steve DeBerg, Warren Moon and Vinnie Testaverde.

    I hate to say it, but Brady could probably START until he's 48 with today's rules on QB contact. He made it clear he has no plans on retiring any time soon.

    I guess it depends how you ask the question.
    When I asked Alexa, who is the oldest QB in the NFL? , she replied Tom Brady. I’m glad I can speak better then I spell lol.

    Any difference in asking 'Indy 500' versus 'Indianapolis 500'?
    I am a fan of the Verizon IndyCar Series, Formula 1, and AMA Supercross. Go Oriol, Seabass, RHR, and J.R.

    You cannot wrangle chaos. You can only try to plan for it.

    I'm guessing that this information isn't being manually inputted but they are trying to read it off the various websites. The Daytona 500 website more clearly states the date and time of the race. At the Indy 500 website it's actually sort of buried and there are lots of other dates listed on the same page (Indy GP, Qualifying, etc).

    My nieces name is Alexa. My sister in law bought an Echo unit... Yup.. she walks the earth amongst us. The best is waiting to see who responds to "G-D it Alexa!" first.
