A Pox on Digger

Okay, it may just be me, but, wasn’t Digger only mildly kind of funny the first hundred or so times? Now they are selling backgrounds for your phone for only $1.99. $1.99!! Let me tell you how to avoid that charge, pause your DVR on your favorite picture of digger, walk over to the TV set and take a picture with your phone and set it to your background. At Daytona, they actually played a Digger cartoon. I haven’t watched the pre-race since then, if the race starts at 1:00 pm on Fox, I tune in about half an hour later just in time for Gentleman, start your engines!

Fox would have the best coverage of Nascar if it wasn’t for all the extra cutsy crap, like Boogity, boogity, boogity, aw, shut up. I mute it whenever Larry McReynolds starts talking about DW synching up those seatbelts. I mean I love their coverage, Larry and DW’s insight into how the car’s run, and how they’ve run in the past is great, just get rid of Digger and the cutsy crap.

Oh, and as I tweeted earlier, the announcers like to hear themselves talk and act like they know exactly what’s going on, I don’t know how many times they’ve talked about drivers gaining positions when they are actually losing them, and today, Mike Joy answered the Aflac trivia question for us. The question was how many drivers had their first win at Martinsville, I believe, if not it was something similar, and Mike Joy says, “It’s a long list; there are 8 drivers on this list.” Duh huh!
