Aquarium

Celebrity Aquarium of Ryan Hunter-Reay


Car racing is an unbelievably stressful occupation, so race car drivers may come up with some imaginative ways to relieve the stress they feel both before and after a race.  There is just that much more pressure on a driver who is chasing a title while in second place.  That is the situation that Indy Car driver Ryan Hunter-Reay now finds himself in.  He lost the chance to move up in the standing to rival Will Power last week when he was spun out of contention by Alex Tagliani with only 10 laps top go in the GoPro Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma.  He had to accept an 18th place finish.In an interview with Lynn Hoppes of ESPN, he revealed the way he plans to get back into racing form after this bitter disappointment:

Don’t be surprised if Hunter-Reay heads back home to stare at that 150-gallon fish tank in Fort Lauderdale. In fact, the National Geographic Channel filmed a segment for its show “Fish Tank Kings” at Hunter-Reay’s house a few months ago.

“It’s a great stress reliever for me,” said Hunter-Reay, who lives there with his wife, Beccy, and their two dogs. “I think it goes back to growing up; my parents would sit me on a bouncy chair in front of the aquarium.”

Celebrity Aquarium – Ryan Hunter-Reay Relaxes with an Aquarium

It has long been known that taking some time out of a busy schedule to watch an aquarium and the living picture it presents is a great way to reduce the overall stress level, and here is just one more anecdotal confirmation of those beliefs.  With suich a celebrity aquarium, it is no wonder that Ryan Hunter-Reay will find a way to get back into the competitive spirit much easier and witrh much less stress.  The 150 gallon saltwater system was created for him by Living Color as part of the Fish Tank Kings series by National Geographic, and presented a small challenge, but the results are well worth the trouble.  I am sure Ryan Hunter-Reay will agree, especially if he is allowed to finish the next race and work his way right to the top.
