Its NASCAR, but not as we know it!

Apologies for the play on the Star Trek thing, if any trekkies get to read this! Ironically its not quite Jim that provides a lot of the entertainment, but its close, being James.

Alright, this posting only really works for Garden members who read this, but I suspect the majority are anyway.

Most weekends, generally on a Sunday, there is soimething called NASCAR racing in the US, I know its car racing, but beyond that my knowledge about it could be written on a postage stamp! I have a handy website which helps me to be competitive, but I’m not giving away trade secrets here lol! Without it, I wouldnt have a clue, and couldnt pick out one driver if they stood in front of me. Mind, they are so well clothed (much needed) that I suspect I might not be the only one.

In theory there are 11 of us in this, though 2 seem to focus on picking via the lucky dog method only lol. So that should leave 9 trying hard to win it? Nope, leaves 7 trying to win it! And 2 trying their hardest to be, err, well, last! Give James credit, he’s got this off to a fine art, much as Freeze Frame has got picking good drivers off to the same fine art. But this year James has had competition on the bad driver front, much to people’s amusement. Trouble is, Rosie isnt so good at it lol! Good enough to be well and truly one but last, but nowhere near as bad/good as James at it.

I like James a lot, and plan to write more about this great guy sometime soon. But yet again this week, James seems to have stopped his driver, and Rosie hasnt! Its probably just as well the drivers dont know about all this! My driver yet again seems to have run well for most of the race, then drops right back when it counts. I’m not competitive, but all the same…

One day I must watch one of these races lol!

  1. Steph fails to mention that she held the lead in this little competition for several weeks. And we may just have to find her a place to watch ESPN on 18 September (because Chicago will be a bit too far for a day trip).

  2. I did mention at the time that my lead was entirely down to a certain website, and nothing to do with my knowledge of the sport. Chicago is far too far for a day trip, besides which I couldnt afford it anyway, even if it was!

    If thats the Sunday,there will be a far more important sport on TV that day, NFL. Go Bills! Not that I really ought to be stuck in front of a TV on holiday anyway lol!
