Now that the Nascar race has experienced its scheduled rescheduling to 11am EST Monday on NBCSN, here’s some stray observations I, uh, observed during the rain delay:
—Nascar gets an hour-long pre-race, followed by extended interviews due to the rain delay. IndyCar has perfect weather and what do they get—an infomercial for “Golden Country Hit Songs” (co-hosted by the “Crook” of “Crook & Chase”!)
—Jamie McMurray has some good number synergy: Car #1, kid in a power wheels #1, #1 Cam Newton Jersey, and Jamie’s #1 in the garage with cold sores.
—The weather forecast doesn’t look too good for tomorrow OR Tuesday, so Nascar might be forced to reschedule the race for the upcoming off-weekend—although given NBC’s wall-to-wall Olympics coverage, we might have to watch it on Bravo.
—Nothing says “I’m a white guy with money” like planning to go to Ireland to run an Ironman Triathlon.
—Is there a requirement that if you’re a Nascar driver you must have either kids or pets? Can’t you just be a miserable loner like ME?
—Anybody else catch Landon Cassill’s vintage Camel Daytona hat?
—Oh well, we might not get a chance to watch it…again, but at least we’ll have a race tomorrow. Unless it rains. Again.
