I watched the NASCAR pre-race coverage from California yesterday.
Waitaminnit... let's restart.
I tried to watch the NASCAR pre-race coverage from California yesterday.
Is this what its going to be each week? Fluff like Hammond's Dr. Seuss bit? A Digger cartoon? Ridiculous. They could have redeemed themselves when Gavin Rossdale hit the stage and had him play a good ol' fashioned ass-kicker to get people fired up but it would seem that the more logical choice was a slow love song. Really? Don't get me wrong. I like "Love Remains the Same". Great song. Save for an ice skating broadcast, it absolutely has no place on a sports show.
But hey, if you're into the new FOX pre-race format don't let me stop you. You may find it entertaining. But as the guy in second place on the backstretch says... I think I'll pass.
By the way, there's no law that says you can't turn the volume down on the TV and listen to something better before the race starts. Catch pre-race coverage for each Cup series race on The Score at 1570 on the AM and now at 95.3 on the FM. No fluff... just facts. Here's the link to the website. They stream online, too.
