I've never understood the popularity of NASCAR. Races take hours, they're pretty damn boring til the last lap. The cars go fast, very fast, so fast any real strategy gets lost in the speed. I understand that it's one of the most popular sports in a large part of the country, but I never really understood it or care to honestly. I've been to a race track, it smells like burnt rubber and engine fumes, the people are there not to watch the race, but to see just how drunk they can get in the parking lot before, during and after the race. It's dangerous to the point of being ridiculous and watch cars go around in circles isn't really my idea of a good time.
Now I'm sure similar comparisons can be made to most professional sports. After all football is the sport of tailgating and if you've been to Yankee Stadium then you know drinking is to the stands, what the game is to the field, but I don't know. There seems to be so much more involved in a game like baseball or football. My idea of athletic ability isn't being able to keep control of your car and your bladder for however many turns you make around an oval.
Oh and on a completely unrelated side note: What the hell were Becks and Posh thinking, naming their kid: Cruz (as if Brooklyn and Romeo weren't bad enough).
