You should be upset anytime Carla finishes in front of you.

He can thank the stupid Chase format for some of that.

I pesonally hate it for the ''home-builder'' types, such as you, because there are quite a few people that are my friends and family in that line of work, and pardon the pun, they have been hammered. Pretty much feel like we have just allowed our jobs, our money, and our future to just be carted off, while we sat back and watched for the past 4 decades. And it continues, sadly.

As for the racing, I share your views as well. Terrible. Although I was encouraged to see Jeff win, and I hope that he has a great season. I was optimistic when the CC change was made. RH is a smart guy to make that move.

And the best part is, Tony accepts a slice of pizza for cab fare.

Not really surprising, viewership for the first couple of races being up this year. Still an overall economic factor, but not in the manner many are alluding to here.

Despite mass media cheerleading, the economic conditions and outlook for work-a-day Americans has not underwent any dramatic improvement. Nor will it any time soon. Corporate profits are up, but unless any of you gentle readers are corporate CEOs, shareholders/board members, or lucky enough to be in the investment class, you're not cashing in on any of that. Increases in productivity and profits over the past four decades went to the top 2%, and will continue to do so, at least as far as the horizon goes.

So instead of packing up for Florida or Arizona, the worker bees have been sitting on the couch, the weather outside still frightful, at least in the upper mid-west, and with the most affordable entertainment being the TV, they selected NASCAR against the NBA, the NHL, and whatever was on the Lifetime network. Don't lable me impressed just yet. Let's take another look at where viewership rating figures are at when the half-way point hits.

One final note. A close friend, and NASCAR fan, living in central Florida informed me that for the first time in his 30 plus years of paying attention, they advertised on local radio stations the day before the Daytona 500 that great seats were still available.

If Carla is on the track, then it is her fault.

Back flip that.

Why would anybody switch to Furd.

Then again, of course I would if I was in an Otoya.

Damn women, they'll do anything for a brain.
Posted Friday October 29, 2010, About: How long should a driver stay in Cup?
If a team with sponsors wants to put them in the seat, and they are not a liability on the track, then they should stay as long as they want.

Beck is proverbial punchbowl-poop.
Posted Wednesday October 20, 2010, About: Kasey Kahne losing it?
Like your flagship Bud fresh don't ya Pond. Good man.
Posted Wednesday October 20, 2010, About: Kasey Kahne losing it?
I could SO see him doing that. What an image.
Posted Wednesday October 20, 2010, About: Kasey Kahne losing it?
Terrific. I'll be reusing this Pond.
Posted Monday October 18, 2010, About: An Ol' D.W. Snub??..
Indeed. And the 25, Ken Schrader or Ronnie Thomas?
Posted Monday October 18, 2010, About: An Ol' D.W. Snub??..
DW irratates me most of the time, but I put him in ahead of Ned Jarrett. I'm fine with the other four.
Posted Tuesday September 07, 2010, About: Tony on a roll?
Smoke could very well roll in the Chase.
Posted Tuesday September 07, 2010, About: Smoke wins at Atlanta
Watch out for Smoke in the Chase! I don't think anyone is taking him seriously.
Posted Sunday September 05, 2010, About: Who CAN Win on any given Sunday.
Mark Martin can still get it done. Retirement talk is silly.
Posted Friday August 20, 2010, About: Nationwide to add a Chase?
I HATE THE CHASE.
Posted Thursday August 19, 2010, About: Drivers Etiquitte??
Yeah, Joey, he was racing hard. He is trying to get into the Chase. Nobody out there is giving you that position, and you wouldn't either.

BTW Pondscum, Stewart can be a handful to pass for sure, but I see him move over all the time. Too much so, IMHO.
Posted Thursday August 19, 2010, About: Is Kevin a contender or pretender?
Kevin is a contender. Absolutely. And Newman, nice of you to show some restraint. Joey the Kid is still learning, and you are a pretty patient, decent guy. I would have been much more upset, as I am sure would have others. Carl would have sent him over the fence.
