We're taking our daughter out for a late lunch on Saturday. It's a tradition to go out to a nice restaurant for family birthdays and her birthday was Wednesday. We have to be home in time for the Shootout!

We are planning our entire Saturday around making sure we are home for the shootout. For some reason I have been so busy since November that I haven't been having withdrawals but come Saturday night I will be in full fledged NASCAR addiction mode.

GO MIKEY!! #55

Jan, I live about 70 miles from Daytona Beach and I'm ashamed to say that I have never been to the race track. One of these days I will make it.

Sorry I haven't been online much lately because my new SIL-to-be is in the hospital having his appendix removed and I have been "dog sitting" and their computer has been acting real crazy. Hopefully he will get to come home tomorrow and than I can get to go back home to my own computer.

Will talk to all later. I'm off to bed right now.

NASCAR-how bad have you got it...

The coffee shops in the casinos here have keno games. While refueling (eating) I find myself calling out corresponding driver names to the keno numbers are posted on the keno board.

Jan, I just got my cable hooked up so I will be able to watch the NASCAR races on both ESPN and Fox. I can get the SPEED channel as well. So I will definitely be glad when February gets here.

This weekend I was watching the next generation drivers (14 and up). So I got my NASCAR fix until next month - - maybe I can wait that long. I hope so.

SAPPHYRE, Fox and ESPN will have all the Sprint cup races and I think ESPN also has a contract for all the Nationwide. Speed channel has the truck series and they use to do the qualifying. I'm not sure where they are going to expand their coverage unless they plan on bidding when the contracts come up again.

We use to have someone on the team that worked with Speed that kept us up to date, but she stayed so busy during the season that she stopped posting.

Renee...you don't have SPEED??? Girl, how do you survive during race season? LOL...actually I know a lot of people that don't get it. The first thing I did when I moved back in with Mom was go to the cable company to find out what I had to do to get it. In NC with Time Warner it came with the basic pkg and I was shocked I had to pay extra for it down here...but whatever...I couldn't live with out John Roberts, Kenny Wallace and Jimmy Spencer on race day...along with Larry Mac, and all the others on Trackside. It really is worth every extra penny I pay for it.

I've still got to fill in my calendar. I usually have it filled in my now.

Mema, my guess is that they stayed further back from the road. ;)

Good news -- I finally got the race dates entered in both my calendars (work/personal and big Nascar calendar for my office). That's a lot of races! I wimped out and left the Campers' World races off my Nascar calendar, especially since we don't have Speed anyway.

A week or so ago, I was bored, flipping channels on the tube, and noticed on the guide "NASCAR Racing" was on ESPNCL. So I rushed over there ... I mean ... it's early right?! Realized (the race was like 20 laps in) it was a replay from last year but I thought "Hey, this is cool!" so I watched. OF COURSE it had to be the replay of the Sharpie 500 @ Bristol, where Kasey got wiped out. But it was great to see a race so soon, even if it was a rerun :)

Thanks, Gals!

What I meant was my surgery is going to occur well after the race - probably not until March, which doesn't really work for me since my partner will be out of town for a couple of weeks. So it probably won't be until April. So I won't get to stay home from work with the excuse that I'm recuperating from surgery to watch all the fun on TV the week before Daytona.

Jan, the Sprint Cup schedule is up on the website, if that's what you mean.

Renee, is the 2009 calander out already? I usually put all the races in my appointment calender along with the TV station running the particular race and the scheduled time. It comes in real handy to plan any camping trips...I only camp on weekends I can get the race on regular channels rather than cable channels. Also, I use to let the office know if I can work or not...LOL.

I'll need to look for Days of Thunder. I've now seen the first part of Talladega Nights twice, and both times ended up missing the end of it. It's definitely silly, but some of the beginning (about his becoming a star) gets me laughing out loud.

MeMa, those are great!

Lori, I'm sorry about the timing for your surgery. Any chance the hospital will have the right channels? Or as Jan suggested, can someone tape things for you?

Now to take someone's suggestion and put race dates and times in my calendar....

Ah man...that sucks Lori! Just make sure the hospital gets the channels you need to watch it, or have someone tape it for you and bring you a player up to the hospital where you can watch it. Recovery always goes better when you are distracted by other things. In fact, they could record each days events of speed week and bring them the next day to the hospital for you to watch! How long do they plan to keep you in the hospital after the surgery...have they given you any idea?

Well, the timing didn't work out. I have to wait four weeks after radiation is over before I can do my next surgery so I won't be home for Daytona week. DRATS!

Ok, for those, like me, who are missing NASCAR right now...

I knew I had become a NASCAR Fan when...

...Tailgating became "drafting"
...I started calling slower cars "lap traffic"
...I started lightly tapping the cars bumper in front of me when I wanted to pass
...I started signaling the cars behind me to pass (they probably thought I was "flipping em off")
...I began timing my fuel stops
...I started calling every curvy road in my neighborhood " Glen"
...I found myself pausing after the traffic light turned green to get a better "restart" than the car behind me
...I miss a gear, it reminds me of Pocono
...I began hoping the car in front of me, would "go high" on "clover leaf" exits
and finally, ...I found myself cleaning "marbles" off my tires when I went slow

Ahhh, too funny. I don't know - Talladega Nights still works for me. :) Watched it the othr night, actually. I know it's crazy, but one of my favorite parts is when the big wreck happens at the end and they "cut to commercial". LMBO - I mean, how TRUE is that?!? One of my other fave moments was when they were at the dinner table.... "Cheeeeip - I'm gonna come at you like a spider monkey; I'm all hyped uup on the Dew!" hahaha Okay, I have lots of favorite scenes.... :)

I was just saying to my hubby that its amazing how much no Nascar on Sundays really frees up my schedule! I go to a later Mass on Sunday mornings( more time to heard my boys up and get ready) I get lots more chores done! And now I have a new hobby, Geocaching! But, I'm sure I will get antsy closer to Feb :-)

I have to have more surgery which should fall sometime in February. I'm hoping to time it so I can be home recovering to watch all the NASCAR programming leading up to the first race. LOL! Hey, I need a bright side to look forward to, right?

I was just over at NASCAR.com checking next year's schedule so I can start marking my calendar when racing starts. Daytona 500 on February 15th man it can not get here soon enough. Our local channel has been running Hooter's Series racing (USAR series) and some ASA series races at night, that's kind of satisfied me some, but it ain't NASCAR. C'mon February !!!!!!!!
