Title: Driven to Win
Post by: Cheryl on March 14, 2006, 08:31:55 PM
I recorded the two episodes of this show from the Biography Channel last week and watched them over the weekend.  I was actually surprised that they were decent shows.  Jayski had a very negative review of them last week from some newspaper person who got to preview them.  

There will be two shows on again this Wednesday night (10 eastern); biographies of Carl Edwards and Gregg Biffle.  Well worth watching IMHO.

I watched part of them.  Guess they were okay.  But I am not sure I am a good judge as I am getting burned out on all these Nascar 'side shows'.

Perfect, Vivian..."SIDESHOW".  That's exactly what most of the new stuff is these days!

I agree we are on NASCAR overkill these days, but this show certainly more value than Trackside or some others.  I'd definitely characterize Trackside as a "sideshow" these days...especially all those damn fans acting so stupid just to get on TV.

You know what I'm trying to figure out??? Why so many of the things which bug Cheryl bug me too! :D
 Seriously, those childish fans really distract me and pretty much ruin the show. That seems to be true of so many sporting events. And I'm pretty sure that it's not just an age kind of thing because I'm at least 25 years older than Cheryl. :-D
  Of course, as one of my old time favorite comics used to say, Gee I'm still a kid.... (Jonathan Winters).
