Winning Teams in NASCAR, NFL ABA, NBA, ETC ALL have one thing
in Common....Strong Team Members..

In the Indy car races...cars come in for 4 new tires/Gas in 8 seconds

Every move is practiced until perfection

In Football, the QB is helpless without his recievers/blockers

and often the winner is the FG Kicker.

Perfection in competetion leads to a winning season and Championships

Bushies AD TEAM is in the Cellar at this point...heading for the Minors..the so called Bush League...or, the Bush Races...

The Bushies are suffering from Amatuerism, Lack of Skill/talent/,
Greed, Selfishness, etc

this is why he is so low in the ratings and will not recover.

Spin will not lead to a WIN......

1. One other thing, a fan base dumb enough to buy an overpriced
ticket and a beer.

3. Gee, from a know nothing comes enlightnment
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
here.

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.

Enjoy your world, I am certainly enjoying mine.

6. I'm in your world too, DainBramaged!
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......

9. Uppity sport like soccer?
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.

7. I love the ABA!


But your point is well-taken. Teamwork is everything in...teamwork. The *Bush team is not playing together now. :)

12. BushCo has a very weak Team in terms of winning the Good Guys Award
There is only a couple of ways to fuck up a wealthy and Super Strong Nation...From within or from exterior Forces.

We are experiencing both at once. Terrorism from the outside and Poor and Lousy Leadership from our infighting/division.

As Team Leader of this Nation....Bush has not done a very good job.
In Fact, he seems to make things worse at every turn....

A Strong Team can almost do the job with a weak Leader. A Strong Leader can make do with a weak Team. But A Weak Leader who forms a weak Team is playing with the ODDS...it don't look so good.
