NASCAR is not technical...sorry but that's just the way it is. Is it exciting? Sure, especially the last 20-25 laps some times...

I think literally the only use I've ever had to this forum was talking hockey during the Olympics. One cannot name a better sport than ice-puck-blade-skating. Though, I'm not biased at all, having played goalie with U.S. Junior team aspirations before getting hurt.

Nope, not biased one bit.

I played about 25 years table tennis and stopped with it 3 years ago (want to have more time for my kids at the weekend).

I watch a lot of sports. So mostly i like soccer and boxing. But i also watch winter- and summer sports as well^^

Pit is nowhere near as good as they like to boast, their goaltending is still all over the goddamn place and they're getting shown up by their competitors in their division (The Capitals 3-0, The Islanders 6-3, The Rangers 5-2) and they've dropped a double digit lead they had point standings over everyone but the Islanders. Speaking of, I could see the Islanders playing the ducks in the final. As much as I like the Predators, there's little experience to be had in the offseason there and as fast and fun as they are (Caps made a 3 goal come back baby, though goddamn Niskanen choked it up) I don't think they'll last to the final. But then, Bruce Boudreau and playoffs, HAH.

I'd love to see the Capitals make the finals and they definitely have the talent and drive right now, easily pulled in the best December in the league but I'll never let myself get my hopes up.

Lightning are pretty great in the East.

Because NASCAR is greatest motorsport ever, dare you say F-1


No, rally is. Because:

It is, it just is in a different way than say F1. Eitherway, NASCAR got boring after Dale Earnhardt died, like nearly every other sport, it's only really enjoyable if you go watch it in person now.

It's true, baseball was a lot better before they banned steroids.

I like rallies.

Anything on a track sucks.


Rally fans and cameramen have balls of steel. That guy in the image above a good example.
