Alright so it's a stated goal for me in 2013 to get more into NASCAR. We've had a lot of listeners say they love all the talk in the morning about the Brewers and the Packers, how they think it's great that Midwest Communications gave a young girl the chance to host a morning show solo blah blah blah, but they want more NASCAR discussion. And in the interest of keeping the few fans I still have, I made it my quest to learn NASCAR top to bottom this season. Now if we're in the trust tree with the nest, I can't say I've ever stayed awake for an entire NASCAR race. But that was before I knew you could gamble on it! You know the old expression, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink? Well if that water is the thrill of winning or losing money and that horse is a degenerate gambler then he will drink until he bursts/is broke. So that is my gateway. By Monday morning I'll either be rich or broke, but I'll be a 10th level NASCAR ninja and that's a promise.
So with that said I have a question for the NASCAR fans out there; is Danica taking the pole for Daytona a big deal? First female ever to do it? I gotta be honest I thought it was a cool fact but didn't give it much thought beyond that. Then I go on post boards this morning and see a LOT of sexist commentary telling Danica to get back in the kitchen and several pole related jokes that were tasteless/hilarious. Now again, internet comment boards are like the Wild West of the internet, anything goes. But are there NASCAR fans like legit upset that a woman won the pole? I dunno.
PS: Is Anchorman the most quotable movie in the last two decades. Like that and Billy Madison to me are the top 2 with Old School a close 3rd. Also I have never been so exicted and horrified for a sequel in my life. Anchorman 2 is either going to a 10 out of 10 or a 0.
Double PS: Signs you don't live in the real world: whether or not Anchorman 2 ruins the original is a legit concern in your life.
