In seasons past, teams have gone as far as to STEAL another team's taxi. Drivers communicating amongst themselves is no fault of the teams. In season 9, if "The Fratboys" weren't penalized for calling up the taxi company and CANCELLING the reservations of the other teams (including the happy-go-lucky "Hippies" who had their ONE moment during the whole series when they weren't smiling), you can't fault anything that happened here.

But I had a moment when they had their task in Atlanta. I mean, going into those flight simulators.. Now, I've never been in a REAL simulator but I've tricked out many a computer and eagerly bought every version of Flight Simulator that has come out since the 1980s. I went nuts thinking "I could do that!!!!"

Now that I'm back from vacation, I have to calculate how long it'll be before I accrue enough leave time to be able to at least apply for The Amazing Race. My wife and I would be the token 'older couple' and I'd love to see how far we can get.

I had two "moments" during the finale -- I know how to make a "1" on a typewriter without a "1" key (I also know how to make an exclamation point), and I knew right away that "44-715-74" was a Hank Aaron reference and therefore the clue was most likely pointing toward the monument in the Turner Field parking lots.

Yeah, that was another moment - I *have* used typewriters where you needed to use the 'l' for '1'. And, yeah, I knew the clue was going to be Aaron-related.
