Nascar by Jeff Lewis Neal,posted Feb 29 2012 2:49PM
So i've taken a couple of days since the beginning of this nascar season, the daytona 500 which is the super bowl of racing and its at the beginning of the season, to state my opinions on this subject. The way nascar week in and week out can draw close to 200,000 fans a race is very spectacular. Drvers such as Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt Sr, Mark Martin, Ricky Rudd, Jimmy Spencer and others have cemented their place in the history of nascar and well deserved. The major companies that come out to sponsor cars for the drivers such as budweiser, winston, pepsi, coke, among others have proven that nascar is without question a big money making business. But personally I just dont get it. I personally cant sit through a 3 to 4 hour race and focus on whats going on and watch them drive around in a circle. Ive been to nascar races before and yes it is an event that is exciting at first and then the race starts. The only thing I wait for in a nascar race is the accidents. They are also classified as athletes. Athletes? Lets compare the Nascar "athletes" to lets say the NFL Athletes. In money revenue each year The nfl has an annual revenue of $5 Billion and has an 8 year TV contract worth $17.6 Billion as to where Nascar has an annual revenue of $3 Billion and the TV contract is worth $473 Million a year. Nascar goes for 36 weekends, 38 if you include the budshootout and the allstar race as to where the NFL goes 17 weeks plus preseason and playoffs and has 15-16 games a week making somewhere over 600 games for the year. Its apparent that NFL has better athletes than nascar "athletes". Just my opinion I could be wrong and thats through the eyes of lewis.
So last thursday on the show matt was sick with the flu. It put jerm in a mood that you could feel throughout the whole room. An awkward feeling at that. It made not just me but everyone in the room uncomfortable for a number of reasons. Most of the texts were telling him to quit whining and do his job which is to entertain you the p1's and help your morning get off to a good start. Its almost as if he needs his hand held throughout this. We all come in to do our job to the best of our ability and even if we start the day in a bad mood its still the greatest job in the world and its an escape from everything. I dont get how someone could be down about that. Must need a diaper change. Maffew get to it.
Why is it that zack brown hates me so much. I don’t get it. I mean I know he wishes he was in shape like me instead of looking like biff from back to the future and having loose skin on him to where his body looks like its 80 years old and his chest hair looks like a v-neck sweater but I don’t say these things. Im not a mean person at all.
So I’ve been trying to help the guys get back in shape. Been trying to help them eat right, exercise daily, obviously that doesn’t work out so well, but I believe I have succeeded. Matt and Fatboy have been coming to the gym with me at 4 Balance Fitness “The Cure for the common gym” and seeing a different side. The tough side. Fatboy has been dedicated and has been coming almost every day, however ive only seen matt 1 time. 1 time I tell you. I even gave him directions to the gym in case he forgot them. Its my mission to help maffew get in shape before his big day.
