    A man had 50 yard line tickets for the Super Bowl. As
    he sits down, a man comes down and asks if anyone is

    sitting in the seat next to him.

    "No," he says, "The seat is empty."

    "This is incredible," said the man. "Who in their right mind

    would have a seat like this for the Super Bowl, the biggest
    sporting event in the world, and not use it?"

    He says, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was

    supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away.

    This is the first Super bowl we haven't been to together

    since we got married in 1967."

    "Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. But couldn't

    you find someone else-a friend or relative, or even a

    neighbor to take the seat?".

    The man shakes his head.
    "No, they're all at the funeral."

    NO,NO! Someone that crass has to be a football fan. Race fans have more feeling than that...

    Race fans wouldn't schedule the funeral at the same time as Daytona! (Although this year's 8-hour Daytona might have caused some problems....)

    Indy...SHHH!!!! Don't give them the details. As football fans, they wouldn't be smart enough to figure that out by themselves. :lol:

    Of course they are not going to miss the race. How else are they going to put their shopping list together. :lol:

    A common statement. "Lets see....Dales has.....Honey, write these down and make sure we buy these products... :thumbsup:

    And some say that money has crept into other sports.... :eek:

    Never seen a football player with dozens of advertisements on their shirt, fake at drinking milk, and be held back from posing until the ball cap can be placed on their balding head, while two skimply clad young ladies with push-up bras strike a sexy pose, all surrounded by a group of guys called the pit crew are all dressed the same in shiny new threads.... :Dancing: Oh, wait....didn't someone call football players primadonas :drinks:

    No....racings not about the money....Not! It's about marketing to people who think they are not being marketed too.... by drivers and corporations making millions....

    Wow you must know some serious backwoods fans if they don't know their being marketed to :confused: pretty much any sport that draws any kind of crowd is all about the sponsorship money.

    Sadly it's the way of the world these days...

    Ain't been to the south lately huh..... :eek:

    I think it's the same whether it's a guy paying 150 dollars for a pair of sneakers cause they are air jordans, or a guy buying mud flaps with some racing number on them. You are taking money out of your families pockets, and making millionaires out of high priced athletes, and those corporations that sponsor them. I would no sooner buy a dish detergent cause it's on the side of a car, or a jacket so I can walk down the street advertising an NFL team.

    Don't get me wrong....if given the chance, I would go to any car race over a ball game. I love hot summer nights, fine ladies, and really short shorts. But I suspect that it's much more than a social affair for most. It's not about going to the race and not caring who wins (that is me) but more about sitting home and getting all excited about who wins. Two completely different things.

    I'm with you, I've never paid $75 for a jersey or gotten a $20 Matt Kenseth ball cap. I'm guilty however of having quite a few diecast cars on display throughout the house ;-)
