Watkins Glen “News” and Notes: Special Nascar Attitude Era Edition

(not my vid, but pretty dang cool)

In honor of Nascar airing on USA Network this week, here’s a fond look back at the WWF/E’s “Attitude Era” on the same network—in both cases, fans tend to remember EVERYTHING as being better in the late-90’s.

—“Good evening and welcome to a sold out Watkins Glen International Raceway for Sunday Afternoon Heat!  Hello Jim Spade here with Jerry ‘The Spade’ Lawler and the entire Nascar universe is STILL stunned at what happened last week on Monday Afternoon Raw!”  “That’s right J.S.!  We’ve seen lots of crazy stuff this year, but Chris Buescher?  With an upset win over Brad Keselowski?  This HAS to be one of the biggest surprises of the year—and possibly the decade!”

—“Well there is plenty of action on tap for you this weekend as in just about an hour, in this very track, we will see Kyle Busch answer the challenge laid down to him by that crafty veteran, Kevin Harvick.”

—“That’s right, J.S., and it doesn’t stop there, because we have a tag-team match between the Penske Duo of Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano and the Ganassi Boys, Kyle Larson and Jamie McMurray—and with Larson and McMurray, they’ve been on a losing streak, if they want to turn things around before we go into Chaseamania, they’ll have to start doing it here TONIGHT!

—“Meanwhile we can confirm that Boris Said is in the building tonight, and we will be conducting an exclusive interview with A.J. Allmendinger on what THIS track means to him.  And by the way, no IndyCar on the other channel to give away our results, so keep it here TONIGHT!”
