I neither drink nor do I think a ticket is overpriced. And since it is for free on the old tube (with wonderful multiple views) traveling to a race is no longer necessary.
The fan base includes tracks in New England, New York, California, Pennsylvania, Deleware, and a bunch of states where the fans are blue not red. Because you know nothing about NASCAR, stick to one of the uppity sports like tennis or soccer. We'll understand.
5. nope, just confirmed that NASCAR fans aren't the only dumb people
Being a fan of anything gives no one a license to denigrate them because of their fanaticism. My sister was once a chess fanatic. But, age and computers caused her to drift. And she enjoyed beer. So beer and sports aren't always an indicator of low intelligence.
But those that market sports realized a decade ago that it wasn't just your stereotypical beer guzzling confederate flag worshiping no tooth walkin the dog mother phucker who enjoyed motor sports. It was a generation of aging hippies who could afford Harleys and NASCAR paraphernalia and street rods and restored muscle cars and not all of them were Corrupt Conservative Propagandists, they were us.
Everytime I see one of these "bash NASCAR" threads (though the OP did mention other sports originally), it just pisses me off. So many people on "our side" (i.e. the liberal/progresive side) think they are so much better than the Repukes who treat the poor badly, etc., and yet they can be just as snobbish and uppity as the Repukes, can sterotype with the best of 'em. Sheesh, if you don't like a sport, don't watch, but don't make assumptions about someone just because they like a certain thing. I also like classical music, opera, fine dining, and other things. Oh well......
I was kinda seeing your point until that pointless (and completely ignorant) slur.
BTW just because the NHL has a team in Florida and another in SoCal doesn't make it any less a Canadian sport overall. It may be unfair to paint NASCAR fans with a broad brush, in fact using a broad brush is almost always wrong, but you aren't making a very compelling argument.
11. "but you aren't making a very compelling argument"
I don't need to. The fan base of any sport speaks for itself, and if you don't like auto racing who cares? The larger the fan base, the more popular the sport. I wish power tool drag racing was a prime time sport, but maybe in my lifetime it will be.
I watch only baseball and auto racing. Everything else (to me) is invisible. But soccer for all it's hype is not even a blip on the tv radar, and even hockey out draws it. Along with World Championship Poker. How sad.
