The OLN channel started off with a pretty fair share of bike related coverage. Now, every time I flip over to it, some guy is strapped to a 2000lb. bull. That's not quite true, once in a while, you get to see a buck being shot from 300 yards.....Great stuff...



When I consider rodeo, bowling, shooting, rockclimbing, poker, fishing, Dr. Phil, cops and I'm running out of ribbon. I began to wonder if I'm the one out of touch with entertainment or does motorcycling really suck and no one has told me.

I have to admit that NASCAR sure is a spectacle. I love the light show they put on after an accident. Contrast that to IRL where one lowly tow Truck with an EMT on board handles every wreck.. NASCAR, like Fox News is a red state thing trust me Jethro. That is why Speed sucks now..to the rest of us non-hillbilly intellectuals..

Gotta love NASCAR. NASCAR is a microcosm of American society - everybody running around and around in circles as fast as they can and, in the end, winding up right where they started.



Thank God they at least quit saying the words "stock car".



Now if we could just bring back some of the old requirements. Like that all the drivers have to run 'shine for a living during the week.

Careful!



With the flood of British sitcoms and other programming that make it over the pond, it's only a matter of time until cricket and darts coverage makes it.



And lemme tell you. When the cricket "tests" are on, it's enough to make you run screaming. For starters, one game can last a week!

NASCAR just surpassed both football and baseball as THE top grossing money maker in the USA. So you can F&ck NASCAR all you want, but if you think motorcycle racing will be shown much anymore, well.....NASCAR just F&cked YOU.
