"Football" is "Soccer" for lawyers.
That sounds pretty fair. Football fans and sports commentors both seem to love talking numbers. It makes perfect sense why fantasy football is getting more popular every year. It lets those guys put those numbers to use.
As far as racing is concerned, NASCAR is still one of the better ones to watch. F1 and Indy are way sterilized with their rules (which are obviously needed due to the risks of open wheel racing), drag racing and quarter mile circle track racing are only fun in person and in small amounts. It might be boring to watch at times, but at least with NASCAR there's shit happening that leads to position changes. That said, going to a Formula D event has replaced going to a NASCAR event on my list of shit to check out. You ever been to a drift event? That shit's bananas.
