    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    No. She wanted to but the Coke 600 is one of the Cup races she's committed to this season so that's what she'll be doing.

    Funny, that is what I think about watching baseball on TV. Or Golf. Never could figure out why people watch those, but I like to watch NASCAR. To each their own.

    Re: Danica is still Danica - weekend recap

    I used to be completely disinterested in NASCAR too. Then, reluctantly, I went to a few races (Texas & Talladega) with some buddies who are big NASCAR fans.

    I truly believe there are very few people that wouldn't enjoy watching a race at Talladega. I still don't pay close attention to the races otherwise, but the the two races I've been to at Talladega were awesome! Everyone should give it a try at some point.

    Go figure! Drinking beer with friends is enjoyable! Never would have guessed that.

    Re: Danica is still Danica - weekend recap

    haters will hate.. still doesnt take away the fact that nascar has the most loyal fans compared to any other sports...

    Danica has anger problems and if she is not suspended or at least docked points it will be a shame.


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Danica is still Danica - weekend recap

    I've always wondered why these cars are considered Fords, Chevys, Dodges, Toyotas, whatever. Somebody told me the only actual stock part on a NASCAR vehicle is the rear deck lid. So why do the automakers bother associating themselves with these cars?


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
