NASCAR - Playing with the Play by Play



…O'er the land of the free
And the home of the brave.

Look out, look out, those jets are flying pretty low…whew, that was close.  Watch out for the Met Life blimp!

…gentlemen, start your engines.

Okay, here we go.  Outta the pits and onto the track behind the pace car.

Why do they call it the pace car, anyway?  The only pace it keeps is so slow the cars behind it swerve back and forth to pretend they want to pass it.



I wonder if I can buy a beer from the #2 car and some M&Ms from the #18?  They're going slow enough, I could just run along side them…  uh-oh, that guy's waving a green flag and the cars are speeding up.  I'll have to wait 'till they pit.

Why do they call it the pits?  Does it suck to work down there?  Does it smell like armpit sweat?  They could probably use some Old Spice.  

They sure run around a lot down there.  I'll bet they could use a Budweiser right about now.

Oh, geez, a crash.  I didn't know Danica Patrick was racing this week.  Give a woman driver a rear-view mirror and some lipstick and trouble's sure to happen.

Uh-oh, better get Maaco.  I hope those drivers have Aflac.

Geez, I'm starting to get a crick in my neck, having to always turn it left, left, left, left.



All these left turns must be a natural for those U.S. Army and National Guard cars. 

Heck, I'm thirsty.  I could do with a Crown Royal.  I should make a 3M Post-It note to myself to remind me to get one at the next break.  

And I don't know why I'm so hungry but I feel like some McDonald's or Long John Silver's. 

Oh, geez, another crash…right into the grandstand.  I see a trip to Home Depot coming up.

Hey look, the #5 car's out in front…Go Daddy!

Damn, I got so excited I dripped some Taco Bell on my shirt.  I could use some Clorox.

Look, look Denny Hamlin's gonna win.  Lordy, he crossed that finish line faster than FedEx!

Juan Pablo Montoya gave Hamlin a run for his money but today he was just off Target.

Poor Jimmie Johnson.  Another loss.  He must be feeling pretty Lowe about now!

Haha. Ads on wheels. It's like rooting for your favorite product. Or watching commercials on fast-forward. Could they be more subtle, I wonder.

Leeuna: You got it in one.

Has NASCAR given up on Natural Male Enhancement?

Hopefully men have caught on and Enzyte no longer has the cash to sponsor a car.

Cdn Blend: Yeah ExtenZe sponsors the #37 car. I remember when Mark Martin was sponsored by Viagra. His #6 car would always finish an inch or two ahead of the competition! Hard to beat!

Wait until you see the corporate names on the side of the space shuttles pretty soon! I think Comet cleanser should sponsor one and maybe Mars candy bar! I am sure your brain is churning out ideas now!

It may be late in the day, but please remember that my vintage photo caption contest is back up today!

Have you ever seen the movie Idiocracy? It takes place 500 years from now (still no flying cars) and clothing is sponsored. Everyone wears Gatorade and Nike on their clothing, oh wait, they do that now. Great movie anyway.

Malissa: That's funny. Good one!
nonamedufus said…
Jen: I haven't seen the movie. But you're right - they do that now in golf, soccer, international hockey, etc. Any empty space is usually worth a price.
Corporate sponsors on space shuttles. That wold be hilarious if I didn't suspect it to be a future truth. :)

Funny post, dufus!

Nanny Goats: Thanks for stopping by, Margaret. Glad you liked the post. Oh, and the space shuttle has the "Canada" government logo clearly printed on what's called the Canadarm!
That's a pretty clever idea, NoName. Wish I'd thought of it. Wish I had NASCAR money, too, but none of the idiots that go with it.

Mike: Thanks, Mike. I had some fun with it. I think those guys are overpaid. All they have to do is turn left.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post... The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in. Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All . (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song) Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress... I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparentl

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki
