Hating Fox Sports, Part 5: NASCAR
Take your Ford Taurus, pull it out of the driveway, take it around the corner, and speed -- say 45 MPH in a 25 MPH-zone -- and you have NASCAR in a nutshell.
It's one thing that NASCAR is boring as hell. C'mon, cars spend a couple of hours driving in a fucking circle while backwoods hicks look on and pass the time by flirting with their sister. NASCAR is one of those things that cater to the type of people who own guns and bang their siblings. Just gross.
And Fox, out of all stations, broadcasts this event. (NASCAR is by no means a sport). The races are seldom exciting and the stars, such as Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr., are nearly as hick-like as the folks who are watching them go in circles. Apparently the commentators of this monstrosity are none too good either. Monkey Outta Nowhere had this to say about Fox's coverage:
"They were full of hick sayings, bad metaphors, and just plain poor coverage."
NASCAR is an unsophisticated, unintelligent, gun-bearing social gathering. And Fox is right there to bring it to your living room. http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif
Don't get too dizzy.
