    The Daytona 500

    While the rednecks are spunking their idiocy over Trump being there... noticed the cars now have digital readouts and the pace car is a ****ing Toyota Camry.

    MAGA morons.

    Although a POS thread...I hope Ryan Newman is all right.
    Draft a franchise QB that X-Era would be proud to put in his user name for the next 13 years.

    Has to be the most boring sport ever.

    Drag racing is much more entertaining.

    There was an old episode of the Simpsons where the family was on a nature walk and stumbled upon a NASCAR track. Of course, Lisa wants to stay on the nature hike so Homer says "Oh Lisa- we can see nature anytime. This is our chance to see cars driving."

    That about sums it up.

    Soccer is the most boring sport.

    People have different taste. To some people football is boring. Run a play for 2 seconds, huddle for 30 seconds, run another play, huddle...repeat.

    Baseball...throw a pitch...ball 1...27 seconds later....throw another pitch...repeat.

    Golf...hit a ball...walk 2 minutes to go find it....hit it again...walk, go find it...repeat

    I don’t really like hockey and basketball but out of the 4 major sports they are the most entertaining to watch live.

    Soccer's not that bad once you get into it. I don't watch regularly but I have a couple of friends who are fans and I'll usually end up watching a few World Cup games with them. With 11 guys on the field, there's a lot going on. You can see them setting up plays and everything. The lack of scoring is frustrating though.

    Baseball is all about the payoff. It's a slow build to an intense moment.

    The problem with football is that it's complicated. Basketball, hockey, soccer- they all have their nuances and complexities, but the basic concept is the same: On offense, work the ball/puck closer to the goal to maximize the possibility of scoring on a shot, on D, keep everything to the outside. With football, the basic rules are complex, then there are so many nuances about positions, plays, base offenses, base defenses vs nickel and dime, etc, and it's easy to get lost. When I first met my wife, she had never watched football before and it was a nightmare trying to explain it to her. She's at the point now where she can watch a game and understand enough to enjoy it but it took a while to get her there (especially when her learning was constantly interrupted by outbursts of profanity from me about something the Bills screwed up).

    As a pretty big soccer fan I disagree that it’s boring, but I certainly see why some think that way. For me the enjoyment in soccer is in the little things, the step over to gain a half yard for a cross, the timed slide tackle to dispossess the opponent or the perfectly weighted through ball to spring your attacker.

    However, those plays only lead to goals occasionally and goals are what most casual fans want to see. That and the game being able to end in ties drives fans away.
    COMING SOON...
