    Guy goes into a sports bar with a dog.

    NASCAR TV announcer says "Danica Patrick is in 25th place."
    The dog jumps up and runs around a bar stool 25 times.

    Everybody laughs and thinks it`s a coincidence.

    Later the TV announcer says "Danica is now in 12th place."

    Again the dog makes 12 laps around the bar stool.

    This time the crowd is in awe of the dogs ability.

    The announcer then says "Danica is in 5th place."

    The dog dutifully circles a bar stool 5 times.

    A guy tells the dogs owner his dogs mathematical ability is amazing and asks what he does when Danica wins.

    The owner says "I don`t know. I`ve only had him 7 years."

    Another Nascar just in time news story. Now they get to talk about it all week and try to draw more interest.....

    Used to love Nascar and traveled to a lot of tracks each year, but they ruined it and now they are paying the price.

    Also noticed this week that they will no longer release attendance figures, but we can all gauge the interest by the empty stands week after week.

    They try not to show the seats but sometimes you can get a peek when they pan the track.

    Same as pro figure skating. My wife loves Lady's Figure skating so I bought her a front row seat in Philly several years ago. About 15 min.s after scheduled starting time an announcer asked that everyone move into one section of the stadium. The event was to be delay televised and they wanted everyone opposite the cameras to simulate a crowd. Nascar has been too commercialized, too white bread, and maybe 50% of contestants capable of winning. I recall watching Richard Petty winning in early 60,s

    Likes-to-shoot and all;

    Sorry for any problem this double posting may have caused.

    The first time I tried to post the thread wouldn`t upload to TS.com.

    Message said "problem with post, reported to TS.com"

    I thought this was deleted and reposted.

    Obviously the first post did not delete.

    I guess my "release" pulled through.

    The heck of it was I did wait a long time.

    When the thread aborted I went to my statistic account thinking it may have gone in there.

    The statistic account showed -0- in all categories although I have been a member since `05 and posted many times.

    Apparently a TS system problem.

    I then reposted, it took, and later the original one took.

    Gremins?

    It seems in NASCAR the popular drivers are all terrible. I dont get it. Dale Jr. is by far the most overrated driver on the circuit, he is a terrible driver but has the most fans. Danica driving a racecar of any kind is about like having a black man run against a white woman for president, good media attention thats all.
