I'd be willing to bet my spongebob squarepants boxers that many many more people have died performing in nascar, then they have hockey at the professional level.
Sorry to hijack the thread a bit, but this isn't even a comparable sport at this point in time as far as ratings go. Nascar is killing hockey in the States. I think the latest ratings report I heard of said that American curling outdrew the NHL down in the States. CURLING.

The other one they mentioned was that last XFL game drew a 3 share of the market, while hockey was hovering around the 1 mark.

I'll probably get flamed for this, but FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, start taking some teams out of the south and bring them back up north. I have no clue as to why the NHL is sticking with it down south, it can't be for the money.

OK, you can go back to the topic at hand.
