Sports-Phobic Gossip Site Fails To Fathom Play-By-Play

Posted in Sports Radio at 3:27 pm by

Though I’m already on record as saying I find NASCAR about as appealing as a vasectomy-reversal without restuarant recomendations, I do understand that for those who actually follow saloon cars going around in a circle, there are names, incidents, strategies, etc. And as such, I find the notion of NASCAR on the radio about as ridiculous as I do the idea of basketball, baseball, football, cock-fighting, etc. on the wireless. Which is to say, not at all.

Of course, if anyone wants to pay hundreds of millions of dollars for the right to broadcast the contents of Paris Hilton’s Sidekick over the radio, I’m down with that, too.

    I’m not a NASCAR follower but have found that its okay in an “ambient”
    way in that if I am at an afternoon barbecue party or hanging around the house doing some work I can have it on in the TV in the background and come back periodically to see who is in the lead but I thought the exact same thing about NASCAR on the radio when I read of this satellite radio deal and the only audience I could come up for this with would be a few long-distance truck drivers.

    I love baseball on the radio. I prefer it to TV, but I grew up in a lot of rural places in a time and place where there was no satellite TV. I hate TV’s focus on the batter pitcher matchup, and the thursday night comedy lineup on Fox stars in the crowd.
