What a productive thread..... LMAO!! The birds was undoubtedly the first and "original" MEGA race....however the IIC race was on the same scale and was run impeccably. I think in fact Vegas raised the bar, but like Kevin said...it will only lead to the birds being better, then Vegas...etc.
This seems to be more of a regional debate and loyalty to Scotty and Boylan respectively..
Here's an idea....donate blood save more money and go to BOTH!!!
