There you have it: 11 of the Team Arctic racers from 1994, most of whom were smiling for the camera.

Not sure why a few of these guys were looking so dour?

 

1994 Team Arctic Race Poster

To help you nail the contest, each of the eleven names is printed on this classic Team Arctic poster from 1994.

 

Another fabulous ArcticInsider prize package.

Above is the fabulous prize package valued at more than $25 but less than $1,000 U.S. Heck, the green neon cap nearly harkens back to 1994!

Add in the prestige and public recognition of having won, and this outstanding gift bag rivals some of the larger Powerball lottery packages.

Good luck!

I think you need to handicap Racerdawn a little. She has a little "insider" advantage of her own :)

What size jacket did each of these guy wear Racerdawn? :)

catflatlander: Yes, Jesse Strege was on Team Arctic in 1994, along with many others (if you look closely at the image of the poster, it lists pretty much every TA racer from 1994).

The b&w mug shot images were taken at Race School in the fall of 1993. If memory serves correctly, Cat shot pix of everyone who was there (and who participated). I don't have every image...sure wish I did.

RR,My main point is that this team is starting to reimnd me of prior MDA teams where lesser players over achieved. And I think as the chemistry is just beginning to emerge, there is still more upside. I see that you are showing that the bench guys are still only really at their historic career numbers, but I would note that 1) the season isn't over yet and 2) In the case of Jamison and MWP, these are older guys who had pretty decent careers so just getting career averages is worth something.Re MDA adapting his offence, I think the issue is kind of complex. The whole league is running on ideas started by MDA, in the mid 2000 s when he instituted a more heavy 3 shooting style, as metrics show that the most efficient shots are 3 s and interior shots. Look at the Spurs/Nuggets/Heat/Rockets the best teams in the league shoot a lot of 3 s. And its clear that the FO, wanted to institute a more free wheeling style, involving inherently shooting more 3 s. So the only question really should be not why they are shooting so many threes, its why aren't they shooting more shots close to the rim, (i.e. pounding it inside more to their bigs). I agree that some blame should go to MDA in this regard, but I think there are a couple of offsets that we need to consider: a) as a guy who has never preferred post ups, the Lakers are running WAY more post ups than any prior MDA team 2) A big part of the offence is just acknowledging that Kobe is running it, and facilitating what Kobe wants/needs to do offensively, which means a combo of 3 s/drives and mid range shots. It also means everybody else is just doing/shooting less, but there is still a need for everyone to share the ball, which means proportionately less shots for the bigs 3) the willingness to pound it inside has been affected by the health/effectiveness of the bigs, with Dwight seemingly immobile through much of the first 54 games of the season, and Pau out for very large chunks. Today for example with Kobe out and Dwight healthy, the Lakers pounded it in to Dwight a fair bit, and overall as Dwight has started to show he is more healthy and therefore capable offensively (and earlier when Pau started to be more effective) he is getting more touches down low.

I don't usually make snap disecions about how a team is going to do over the course of a season based on a small sample size of games .however I have to agree with the dude abides on this issue.Last year we heard a multitude of excuses for why the team seemingly underperformed short season, new coach, new system, no training camp as though those factors did not apply to any other teams.Mike Brown got a pass last year even though his reputation for not being able to make in game adjustments or reasonable rotations was well earned. This year there is again a stream of excuses from people preaching to give him a chance. The problem is that he has shown ZERO evidence of utilizing his team to it's greatest capabilities and developing a bench, or a sane rotation. Bench players need to have defined roles, and MB is back to playing people seemingly at random, eg Meeks and Ebanks in and out of line up forcing players into roles they're almost certainly going to fail at eg jamison as a three, which compounds the problem as that squeezes ebanks' minutes. The teams that have been beating us have all had player turnover as well see dallas and their entirely new roster minus their superstar and starting center beating us like we stole something. at some point, no more excuses, simply produce. right now the princeton offense looks terrible, and is directly leading to turnovers. I understand learning the system, but honestly, there is no reason why this team shouldn't be running pick and roll a majority of the time. the players are thinking way too much out there and simply throwing the ball robotically around the perimeter most of the time, accomplishing nothing, and at worst telegraphing the passes so comically that it's inevitable a steal for a dunk is the outcome. practice that in practice, but simplifiy the game when it's for real by playing a majority of pick and roll out of those sets. Play to our strengths..hello nash and howard? should be the most devastating PnR EVER or pick and pop with gasol . or any combination of PnR with kobe/ howard/ pau/nash there are enough complexities to pick and roll action that pull a defense out of whack, and can open up other actions as well. to pull a quote from a semi bad/good movie ..the replacements with keanu..sometimes losing is like quicksand . You're playing and you think everything is going fine. Then one thing goes wrong. And then another. And another. You try to fight back, but the harder you fight, the deeper you sink. Until you can't move you can't breathe because you're in over your head. Like quicksand. I'm afraid that if we don't make a move to get rid of brown SOON the lakers will be in quicksand. I'm basing this on watching the team and body language every home game at Staples center since last year until now. The team stinks of desperation, and lack of joy in playing, and shows no sign of improving.And as a final question do you think the princeton offense would have worked for the showtime lakers? Don't shackle players to a system they're ill suited for, work a system that maximizes the team's strengths. Let them play a simpler brand of basketball, let them have fun scoring, and that'll help keep the stupid turnovers down, and allow us to set up defense better.. (although i am at a loss as to what our scheme is.. pau is too slow to hedge hard at the three point line and recover, yet we do this over and over again, causing players to scramble..that's a whole other issue that this defensive guru of a coach refuses to correct.)sorry so long, /rant off. http://hvgoqjafxtm.com [url=http://jdttyyzbbed.com]jdttyyzbbed[/url] [link=http://frfxth.com]frfxth[/link]

There are people on this blog who rellay hate Mike D'Antoni and we all know who they are. There is very little new you can add to your comments. Ok, we get it. Say it once in each thread where you have a chance then let others comment. There are a lot of good coaches and players who have never won rings. In sports talent has to meet opportunity to be a major player/coach and get a ring. For the rest it has to be pure luck of being able to play with these stars in the right years. Elgin Baylor retired early in the year the Lakers won their first ring in L.A. so he hasn't won one does that make him any worse a player? If you think it does, then you seriously haven't been following sports much.We had a team that was touted to be a lock for the finals before the season started. Our Monday-morning quarterbacking now is that everyone was too old and too slow. Those weren't our comments a year ago. D'Antoni was chosen because the Lakers wanted to move to a more open and up-tempo type of game. That was a management decision all of the operating management. The least we can do is give this current team a chance to get their sea legs before we roast them over the fire.Quite possibly this year will not be as competitive as we would like, but I want to see what these guys can do. http://ymdutal.com [url=http://wxbbfwc.com]wxbbfwc[/url] [link=http://mvvlmvdfig.com]mvvlmvdfig[/link]
