YES, TOMORROW IS AMERICA'S SUPER BOWL SUNDAY... BUT PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO SUPPORT DRAG RACING WHEN THE 2018 SEASON STARTS...

Look, I know that tomorrow is "Super Bowl Sunday", and much of America's mainstream population, admittedly including yours truly, will most likely be watching the Philadelphia Eagles taking on the New England Patriots in the inhumane, freezing-cold-climate of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Minneapolis does hold a special place in my heart though, because one of Big Stick's (my music thing's) most memorable concert gigs happened at the late Prince's "First Avenue" nightclub in that eclectic city. So I do understand some of the romance of Minneapolis. Professional Football has had a rough and bumpy season. Politics have somewhat muddied the game. We have a President who trashes the NFL because he naively insists that "the players don't hit as hard as they used to" or so he says, when the actual truth is that pro football remains a very dangerous sport, where serious concussions, brain injuries and life debilitated harm occurs multiple times each and every single game-- it's even harder than it looks on TV. Like I said, it's been a rough season for football. But it's also been a rough period for drag racing too. I'm sure you're probably aware that my local strip, Old Bridge Township Raceway Park, recently announced that they're taking drag racing off their motorsport menu, much due to years of socioeconomic related gremlins haunting and taunting their business operation... Oh well, not sure where I'm going with this, or where this subject is taking my wondering psyche at the moment, so I'll just bite my tongue and wrap this all up by saying, that compared to football, most of mainstream America considers drag racing to be somewhat of an "alternative" or slightly "oddball" form of sport. Professional football and the other "stick n' ball" sports get a heck of a lot more attention and respect than we ever will, but so what, we know that this straightline racing stuff is fun and a cool way to spend our leisure time, so that's good enough for me, I guess-- AND--  when your local drag strip opens for the 2018 season, PLEASE get up off your butt, and out from behind your silly computer device, and go show your support (with your mind and body) for your local drag racing scene... Oh, and just a couple other additional thoughts-- I pick Philly to win by three points, even though I realize that the Patriots' Tom Brady is some sort of superhuman life form who is far more mentally and physically superior than any and all of us mere mortals... Now I'm off to research what kind of unconventional potato chip dip I'm going to whip up for tomorrow's gridiron battle royale...
