ESPN makes big-time NASCAR wait until the end of the Texas vs. Minnesota game, that’s Little League, folks, not the MLB, before starting the Cup qualifying event at Bristol.

I don’t know how those broadcasting contracts work but the twenty-one minute delay was a good move by ESPN and NASCAR.

NASCAR is a family-oriented sport, imagine if they would of preempted those kids game, NASCAR would have been Scrooge and the Grinch all in one.

They certainly don’t need any of that right now, specially when they need more kids to follow the sport.

Agree? Of course you do.

As it turned out, I got to watch a good game and a grand slam homer; good luck to Texas, they look like the class of the field.

And good move, ESPN and NASCAR, you got one right.

Just kidding there, guys; you always get it right.

Or not!

Enough said.
