Your Sunday morning update

Hey everyone. Birthday Sleepover 2010® is in the books. That was six 8-year-old girls, two cupcakes each, unlimited Disney Channel and enough plush animals to create a well-stocked zoo.

My goal today? Get to Talladega Superspeedway and watch some racin'.

So I'll be around the HABOTN, but I'll be posting from the media center adjacent to Pit Road. If a few of you are planning to watch the race, I'll post occasional behind-the-scenes updates.

If you're not into racin', I understand.

PHOTO GALLERY

Michael Waltrip's No. 55 Toyota was involved in a fender-bender on lap 83.



Johnny Sauter was the first guy to lose it in the Lap 83 incident, but he was bumped by Kyle Busch. The Sauter people are trying to get that car back on the track. Good luck.

I am not a big fan of NASCAR racing and never watch any other kind.
I do follow it some and pull for Kasey Kahne. I did for years pull for Bill Elliott. I have been to 1 race in Atlanta and 2 at Talledega,
Usually check in on the race 2 or 3 times and try to catch the finish.

Went to Talladega once in my life. I saw the 'Busch" race, and the Auburn Car came in 7th. I did the race of champions after that. I had more fun watching drunk a guy stand on the first row and flip Bobby Labonte the bird EVERY LAP.

Of course the one big Dega race I go to, there was not one wreck. They just ran in circles all day long. Not what I expected. Glad I went, I won't go back.

Of course, everything I touch sporting wise turns to garbage. The NYC trip this week has been a bust. Maybe the Braves can help me salvage the trip tonight.

I'm trying to watch this race and it is just pointless. The winner of this race will be lucky, not because he is a better driver and that is the flaw with the sport. It has very little entertainment appeal until maybe the last few laps. Until then, if you are watching, you are hoping for a crash. I guess I'll never get this sport.

I'm on the fence about whether its a sport or not. But if you don't think there is a great amount of skill involved with these drivers you've got it all wrong.

The restrictor plate races do have a little bit of luck involved. But being able to read the draft and get your car where it needs to be is definitely a skill.

Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

This race has been boring. No doubt.

1:19 PM

Re: sport or no....

That's an individual decision, but I'll tell you this. I gained a helluva lot of respect for those guys after doing the Richard Petty Driving Experience in Atlanta.

Did nine laps in what was essentially an ARCA car. Got up to 149 miles an hour, and my heart was pounding out of my chest.

When I finished, it dawned on me that I was scared to death, going about 50 mph slower than the guys who do it on Sundays. There were about 5 other cars on the track, and we were all spread out. On Sundays, there are 42 other cars, often about a foot apart.

If golf's a sport, NASCAR definitely is.

1:21 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Nascar require skill...yes, but so does video games. The difference is the video game won't kill you.

No offense, but golf actually requires someone to be athletical skilled, not just great hand eye coordination.

I agree that Nascar is a competition that requires great skill, but it is one of the only so call "sports" where the best that day actually may not win.

Nascar requires great skill, and if that is a sport than flying in the blue angels is just as "competitive". Anyways, I know there are several on the other side of this, but that's my feeling on it. Also, restrictor plate racing is retarded. Let's make sure that every car is completely equal and all go the same speed. How many lead changes today....exactly. Honk if you haven't lead a lap today at Dega should be the new slogan.

JKev- So if you are fat, you are not athletically skilled? Those players could have been so much more if they got their ass in shape.

So if I responded in the same sense it would be Nascar are athletes.

Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Like I said I don't have a particularly strong opinion one way or the other. But I think its hilarious that you think golf takes more athletic ability.

Driving fast in a circle for 5 laps, not too much athletic ability required. Doing it for 4 hours is another story.

They are both in the same category if you ask me. Right on the edge. They both take a great amount of skill, but don't require a great amount of conditioning or the like.

It's a fun debate, and this is the perfect thread to do so.

I can practice all day long at golf everyday and still have no chance at playing on the PGA Tour. If given the best equipment in Nascar, my odds are much better that I end up in a Nascar race.

I agree fun debate.

I agree there is a large amount of luck in restrictor plate races. But a considerably less in a normal track. Of course you have to get lucky to avoid a getting taken out, but beyond that there isn't much luck involved in most cases.

I still say golf and racing are in the same boat. If one is a sport they both are.

Good day Hotties. Been running around all day. Just got caught up on everything here. Drivers are skilled and have some endurance, but they are not athletes in my opinion. Golfers are on the fence leaning towards athletes. Great to hear Au won baseball. I think 2010 is going to be a great sports year in Au. Can't wait to enjoy it with all of you.



Cincy, what channel were you watching the other day where the anchor called AU the university of Auburn? I would like to shoot the station an email.

7:09 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

What makes an athlete? To me, it's three things.

1. Physical skill (strength, agility, endurance).

2. Mental Acumen (decision making, will)

3. Competition (venue, sanctioning)


Race Car drivers, NASCAR included, and Jockeys, possess all three. Luck is involved in any sport. Don't discount the entire sport because luck is a factor. If a soccer game can be won 1-0 off of a crazy deflection that had little to do with the player's skill or ability, a race can be won by someone who avoided a wreck or chose the right line.

7:11 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

One thing to me about an athlete is that they are typically well rounded in regards to other sports. What I mean by that is a good portion of say football players are usually pretty good at other sporting events. Maybe not great at them but still competitive. Not saying that NASCAR drivers can't do other thing, but I would be willing to be that not many are good at say basketball or baseball. Just my opinion and I could be totally wrong. I may not have completely articulated what I wanted to say but I think most of you get what I am trying to say.

7:21 PM

On that note I played basketball with Lorenzo Diamond one time. He is a an athlete. He could dribble, shoot and do just about anything else he wanted. He was the biggest guy out there. Unfortunately for me I was the best player on my team so I had to guard him. I'm 5'll" 190 and he was something like 6'4-6" 250+. You can probably figure out how that went.

While I think the whole debate over if something deserves to be called a sport or somebody an athlete is pointless (why does it really matter), I'll give mad props to guys who showcase an incredible amount of endurance in anything they do.

Lance Armstrong (and cyclists in general) is one of those guys. To race across a country for three straight weeks, 100-110 miles a day, eight or so of those days up steep mountains. Well...those guys have my respect.

Besides that...I think what they do is definitely a sport and requires some athleticism or freakish physical capabilities.

NASCAR racing takes more luck than most any other sport and today is proof. The best drover got knocked put of the race. It is a sport for sure, just one that is tough to follow.

I was at the Braves game tonight. I had such high hopes for the Braves when I booked this trip. I can unequivically say this weekend was an abosulute nightmare.

Roger McDowell tossed my wife and I a ball while Hanson warmed up. After that, I am having a hard time figuring out anything else good that happened. She and I argued half of the time. The braves went 0 fer the weekend. Lines were long everywhere we went. The Metropolitian Muesum of
Art was a bore, but wifey wanted to go.

The braves are awful. I have been to 4 games this year and I believer they have committed 10-12 errors combined in those 4. They had 10 baserunners tonight and 0 runs. Chipper is too old to carry the team, Heyward is too young to to that kind of lifting. It was awful.

Oh and it was raining.

Stop talking THT and others, I was trying to sleep. I guess I have to go to work since its Monday.

The Braves are the best team in the NL. They've had a rough stretch, it happens.

THT,
I was on the elliptical - you know, that thing you hate to do - exercise? I hate it, too. :) Must find me a new movie to watch.

Everyone have a fabulous Monday!

Where is Luv? I hope her neck is not giving her problems again.

The number of mental mistakes that the Braves are making the last few games is amazing.

I do usually expect them from Escobar because his head is always far from the game, but the pop up Friday where Chipper, Infante and McCann all goofed and allowed the run to score without anyone covering home was awful.

7:27 AM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

WERK,
What is the deal with Escobar? Does he think he is so good he doesn't have to think about the game? He is really starting to irritate me.

7:32 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Escobar drives Bobby Cox crazy because he has a ton of talent, but mentally he's not a focused player.

Feng strikes!

Blogger Brother Jet said...

Thanks to my Korean to English translation book, I am able to translate Feng's pronouncement.


"Auburn baseball needs to go .500 the rest of the way to get to Hoover. Luke Cothron may be the next hoops domino to drop. The Atlanta baseball team is going to frustrate its fans. Feng cannot wait for football season. Norm is a douche. Earnhardt!"

7:51 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

Morning Hotties.

Jet - I'm 100% positive that you got part of that translation incorrect.

7:55 AM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Anticipating Auburn being in the SEC BB tourney, I just checked the Hoover schedule. It is exactly the same time we are in Colorado for our friend's graduation from the Air Force Academy! We get back on Saturday, so if Auburn is in the final game, we can go on Sunday.

7:56 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Cincy - be hopeful, but don't hold your breath all the way home from Colorado.

Feng's getting more verbose, must be feeling more comfortable around us now.

Been to 1 NASCAR race. I went to the Talladega ARCA (Sat?)race with My-Brother-the-Bammer a few years back. We each wore hats to support our favorite CFB teams. Near the end of the race some guy makes a comment that we were a "disfunkshinull famly", folks 30' feet around us in all directions got involved in the discussion and a Bama-AU fite almost broke out. Good thing because as you can imagine, the AU folks were heavily outnumbered at that event.

Errybody got back to watching the race just in time for the ubiquitous mega-wreck in the final laps. Ima one-and-done on the NASCAR thing.

Blogger digger4au said...

The Braves can't score runs so they make up for it by committing errors both ghysical and mental.

9:51 AM  
Blogger chip chip said...

once again, the easiest way to shut up 90% of bammers is one simple question: what year did you graduate?

also acceptable:
i didn't know they had a masters program in hole digging at bammer.

Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

I passed a classic pick-up truck on the way in to work this morning. It said "Hillbilly Girl" in the middle of the back window, had an "88" on the left side of the back window and a Bammer elephant on the right side. It also had a "Litle E" vanity license plate.

So Jevan Snead didn't get drafted. Safe to say he got some bad advice.

11:03 AM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

I opened the windows and went back to bed this morning. Why? Thunder, lightning, and a hard rain make for great sleep and fantastic dreams. I'll make up the work I missed some other time.

11:03 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Maybe Houston Nutt gave Snead the bad advice...on purpose.

11:05 AM  
Blogger michael said...

I don't know, E-Bro. I think Houston Nutt is only vaguely aware of reality, and I don't think he is capable of such complicated string pulling as giving false advice to accomplish other goals.

11:13 AM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

I had Samoas (Girl Scout cookie) ice cream last night. Whoever invented that should get a promotion.

11:17 AM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

People like Snead ask lots of people, but only listen to what they think to be true before asking.

11:19 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Snead thought to himself, "When breaking down my game video, I'm pretty sure NFL scouts will only look at what I did in 2008. Man I smell good today."

11:23 AM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

I smell good today.

On according to Jim, Jim and his wife wrote letters to themselves on their wedding night with 15 year goals. On their 15th anniversary, they opened the letters. Jim's only goal was "do it in every state of the big 10 conference."

I've just changed my 15 year plan....but what if the SEC expands to 16 teams, does my goal expand?

Samsung is number 2 on Fortune's list of World's Most Admired Companies for 2010 under the Electronics category. Take that Sony!

11:39 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Peter...yes. It does. I might even go a step further and say every city instead of just the states.

Granted, it's hard to find the charm in doing said activity in places like Stark-vegas and Fayettenam, but...

A outright proposal is doomed. You gotta just try your best as opportunities present themselves.

I advise all college football players the same way. Stay in school get your diploma. One more year in school will help not hurt you.
Those that don't listen will someday regret it or go back and get it.

Hard to believe Snead didn't get drafted but Crompton did.

1:18 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Not so much based on last year's play. Crompton seemed head and shoulders above. I started to refer to Snead as the new Crompton a few games into last season.

1:25 PM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

I'm not scout. But it seemed to me that Snead has potential if he can get back on the right path after a horrific 2009. but I see nothing in Crompton that would make me think he could be an NFL quarterback.

Either way Snead is an idiot for coming out earlier.

1:33 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I will say, however, that I AM surprised Crompton went period, even though he has a pretty good arm.

Who the #$@% is Jackson Pollock?

Jackson Pollock was an influential American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement.
