Racing and Judgment

Steve Phillips with Al from Happy DaysToday’s topic: Bad judgment. The poster boy for such irrational choices is/was a member of the Indy Car Series half-assed broadcast partner ESPN. Evidently that place is crawling with horndog creeps, male and female. Steve Phillips made an ill advised choice to bump uglies with Al from Happy Days.

Looks like ESPN made a bad choice fawning all over NASCAR for over ten years while neglecting their loyal Indy Car partner; the ratings are down and yesterday there was a quite a lot of shiny aluminum at one of NASCAR’s smallest stadiums in Martinsville for their quaint bumper car circus. NASCAR minimizes their mistakes by spreading the rights around, but the Disney bunch may end up killing ‘stock’ car momentum. In the words of their Southern announcing staff, both sides ‘prolly fand it fuss-tratin.’ If I ran NASCAR I would limit tracks to one Cup race a year and add deserving tracks (like Kentucky) that do not have Cup races.

cart Apologist Warning SignBad choices continue to be made by the handful of IRL haters. The single funniest source of laughter is reading their psychotic pontifications about television ratings, and many of the more stupid have deluded themselves into believing they know what they are talking about.

These same thought deprived loudmouths have offered their opinions on what constitutes bad choices, including a decision by Marlboro’s parent company to do away with free ticket giveaways at race tracks and ISC’s decision to stop making NASCAR ticket holders buy Indy Car tickets and vice-versa. Both decisions, in reality, could help Indy Car provided the series improves marketing efforts.

  1. There seems to be quite a bit of ranting & raving on here of late regarding what constitutes bad choices while, you know … simultaneously denouncing anyone else who rants & raves about what constitutes bad choices.
