  • David,

    Could you, per chance, be referring to little ole' me?

    I do agree with you, you know; I just like to pull the strings of race car fans (including my husband and Mary).

    I realize that NASCAR drivers have to be in pretty good shape, and have terrific reflexes.

    But I'd still rather be strung up by my toes than having to watch a race. I can't think of anything more boring than having to endure a bunch of cars driving around a track, but isn't that the reason they make chocolate and vanilla?

  • loveretirment I agree with you NASCAR is boring to me also. I don't see it as much of a sport either but neither do I see Hunting or Fishing as a sport ..nor Golfers as athletes.

  • I don't think of NASCAR drivers as athletes either although my husband does and points out the above reasons why they are. I guess I just resent that he usually only gets one day off and its NASCAR ALL DAY LONG. What a waste of a day. Just my opinion though......
