Hit the nail on the head, TDMM...

Being a former NASCAR goon, I always found myself defending the sport with the exact same statement.

Yeah the concentration and forces I can understand.

But as one of my microprocessor prof's once said, "If I wanted to watch people drive very fast and very close to one another and crash all the time - I'd put a lawn chair on the side of the Turnpike"

I really can't see how people get into Nascar unless they're mechanics.

UConn basketball is like a religion in CT. I watched the entire 6 OT game while playing drinking games with my friends. I was very trashed and very angry when they lost at the end.

I was at every day of the Big East tourney.


EXCEPT THAT ONE! So pissed.


I still stayed up til something like 2 am watching that, but sorry, we were rootin for 'Cuse. Great friggin game though, Mrs. Krinkle had work the next day ( I was still in my unemployed phase) and she was crying after the 3rd or 4th OT "I just want to go to sleep! Someone freaking end this!" I kept laughing maniacally everytime someone managed to tie it and kept cracking beers.

That was a ridiculous game, I couldn't believe how many times it was tied. I just wanted it to end so I could stop drinking, because we had agreed that we would keep drinking as long as the game kept going. Understandably, I was so drunk I could barely stand at the end of the game.
