Yeah, if you consider real men to be trailer park, coon shootin', tobacco chewin' rednecks.dg said:Real men watch nascar
Understand what Nascar is before making an assumption. It is nothing like what it was when it first started. Have you noticed that it is moving more to the west coast? Nascar is HUGE now, and there is no stopping it. Sure, you still have a bunch of rednecks in Nascar, but that is changing. You can't just buy a car off the showroom floor and turn it into a Nascar Nextel cup car. There is so much involved in Nascar these days, from the drivers, cars, pit crews, owners, families, sponsors, promoters, tracks, media, and, of course, the fans. Which btw, the fans of Nascar are the most loyal fans to their driver, than the fans in any other sports. It's much more than slapping a car together and going fast. But you would know this if you actually watched it.jstager said:Yeah, if you consider real men to be trailer park, coon shootin', tobacco chewin' rednecks.
Wanna watch a real sport? Watch Forumla 1 racing. Now THERE is a sport where there is some engineering and brain usage going on (but not on the drivers side). Not to mention that the crashes look pretty because the cars are meant to crumple on impact to save the driver.
I used to watch F-1 racing, but I really don't anymore. I feel it's the engineering that makes it cool.
Anyone can make a Nascar vehicle. Buy a Ford Clitoris, and knock out a window, put in some tubing for a rollcage, a big gas tank and a new engine, and PRESTO! Redneck mobile al la carte. The reason why rednecks watch Stock Car racing is because they are obsessed with America, and hate "liberal pussies." You know, the people who are smart enough to realize that foreign made autos are better, and therefore make better racecars? Add the factor that Nascar is a simple sport for simple people, and has therefore merged itself into southern culture. You just summed up the South in a nutshell. Give yourself a pat on the cock, you deserved it.
No offense DG, to each his own, I'm just stating my views. Up North "real" men watch football (which also sucks).
