Demond Sanders and Deshawn Zombie kill time talking about racing...
DZ (3:18:37 PM): oh great
DZ (3:18:42 PM): about time
DS (3:18:45 PM): I'm not sure it matters much since it’s basically a bankrupt series
DZ (3:18:54 PM): Champ you mean?
DZ (3:19:15 PM): People can dog Tony George all they want,
DZ (3:19:22 PM): but the CART guys were morons
DZ (3:19:30 PM): who clearly didn't understand the market
DZ (3:19:38 PM): to think they could survive without the 500
DS (3:19:47 PM): yeah i guess that’s true
DZ (3:19:48 PM): they should have done what ever TG wanted
DZ (3:20:10 PM): TG's vision for the sport was better than theirs, he had all the leverage
DZ (3:20:26 PM): and they tried to go it alone
DZ (3:20:31 PM): it was a dumb
DZ (3:20:38 PM): TG's still rich
DZ (3:20:45 PM): so who was smart and who was stupid?
DZ (3:21:02 PM): BTW: I didn't realize that Ryan Newman is a Hoosier
DZ (3:21:06 PM): Hoosiers rule
DS (3:21:07 PM): he's not
DZ (3:21:10 PM): he is
DS (3:21:12 PM): he's a boilermaker - puke
DZ (3:21:16 PM): lol
DS (3:21:19 PM): not
DS (3:21:20 PM): the
DS (3:21:21 PM): same
DS (3:21:22 PM): thing
DZ (3:21:24 PM): he is a native, I mean
DS (3:21:27 PM): south bender i believe
DZ (3:21:30 PM): yeah, his mom still lives there
DZ (3:21:48 PM): my point is for ‘screwing the South purposes’
DZ (3:21:51 PM): he's a Hoosier
DS (3:21:58 PM): he seems like a Purdue grad - bo-ring
DS (3:22:05 PM): yeah he and tony Stewart were dueling
DS (3:22:08 PM): so that was cool
DS (3:23:26 PM): tony should probably have kept some non-ovals to start with
DS (3:23:34 PM): he ended up having to add some anyway
DZ (3:23:45 PM): sure, but in principle he was right
DZ (3:24:00 PM): nascar took over, and I promise you that it wouldn't have if it was mostly road races
DZ (3:24:12 PM): road racing is nice once in awhile
DS (3:24:16 PM): yeah
DZ (3:24:19 PM): but it's mostly boring
DS (3:24:22 PM): right
DS (3:24:33 PM): its appeals to a completely different sensibility
DZ (3:24:45 PM): an effeminate Eurotrash sensibility
DS (3:24:56 PM): people that like to see the cars accelerate and brake a lot
DS (3:24:59 PM): but it is boring
DZ (3:25:09 PM): it's ok, as long as there are places you can pass
DZ (3:25:23 PM): but on most courses in F1 there is NO PASSING
DZ (3:25:30 PM): where you qualify is where you finish
DZ (3:25:33 PM): it's insane
DS (3:25:37 PM): yeah and they didn't like Indy because of the straight away
DZ (3:25:55 PM): right, and you actually could get by somebody
DS (3:26:27 PM): he's getting Paul Tracey and who else?
DZ (3:26:40 PM): clarity in the market place
DS (3:26:44 PM): there's like one other guy cause Bordeiax went to F1
DS (3:26:49 PM): yeah
DS (3:28:04 PM): graham Rahal
DZ (3:28:05 PM): I can hear the Japanese guys now...
DZ (3:28:08 PM): cancel?
DZ (3:28:13 PM): you want to cancel?
DS (3:28:25 PM): although he's destined to for F1 I've heard
DZ (3:28:26 PM): YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE BEGGED US TO HOLD THE RACE IN THE FIRST PLACE
DS (3:29:10 PM): and BRUNO JUNQUIERA's coming back!
DZ (3:29:18 PM): nice
DZ (3:29:55 PM): hopefully, they'll start making inroads on Nascar
DZ (3:29:59 PM): they have the better product
DZ (3:30:04 PM): Nascar is unwatchable
DZ (3:30:14 PM): it's slow
DZ (3:30:19 PM): too may cars
DZ (3:30:27 PM): too many races
DS (3:30:38 PM): i know
DS (3:30:48 PM): they'll be like "THEY'RE GOING FOUR WIDE"
DS (3:30:57 PM): and I’ll be like where? I just see a giant mass of cars
DZ (3:31:05 PM): At ROARING SPEEDS OF NEARLY 100 MPH!
DS (3:31:08 PM): right
DZ (3:31:17 PM): IN GIANT TANKS
DZ (3:31:35 PM): You watch Indy cars and you can't help but think...
DZ (3:31:43 PM): somebody is going home in a body bag today
DZ (3:31:52 PM): now that's a thrill you can sell!
DS (3:31:58 PM): totally
DS (3:32:14 PM): yeah how lame much Dario Franchitti feel?
DS (3:32:34 PM): he goes from world class badass to 35th place finisher!
DZ (3:32:53 PM): something tells me he was doing ok by bed time
DS (3:32:58 PM): well sure
DS (3:33:20 PM): but it’s just so anti-climactic, no pun intended
DS (3:33:34 PM): you win the biggest race in the world
DS (3:33:46 PM): and then you are a nobody with a terrible car
DZ (3:33:57 PM): but with a bag of cash
DS (3:34:11 PM): I’m sure he, as a little boy growing up in Glasgow, thought “I'm going to race in the Daytona 500 some day!”
DS (3:34:27 PM): it’s such a marketing ploy, the whole race
DZ (3:34:47 PM): I don't get it entirely, because they run like half a dozen races on that track
DZ (3:34:55 PM): so who cares?
DS (3:34:50 PM): it was never the biggest race until like 10 years ago
DS (3:35:04 PM): now suddenly it’s the great American race
DZ (3:35:49 PM): half the drivers in it would rather win the Brickyard if given the choice
DS (3:35:49 PM): it’s freaking February and they'll be running until September
DZ (3:35:55 PM): We can only hope this merger can do something about it
