Replay Fools NASCAR Fans

by Jerry Bader

Every year I try to become a legitimate NASCAR fan and vow to start with the Daytona 500. Well, I was going to watch as a friend send me texts to understand the nuances of the race, and it was rained out. So, Fox replayed last year's race. Apparently a lot of viewers missed the crawl that said 2013 and last year's winner, Jimmy Johnson, got a lot of congratulatory calls while sitting out the rain delay.

I wondered to myself if many people would be fooled and then thought, nah. Now you know why they didn't play an old Super Bowl two years ago during the Super Dome blackout. Although, it would have been great to see the Packers beat Pittsburgh again.
