The same reason so many people watch NASCAR. It's not to watch a bunch of loud cars drive in endless loops, it's about waiting for JP Montoya to crash into the jet drier and cause burning fuel to go...

Well played, sir!

On that note, I had a "rail" photo rejected tonight after being stuck in Queue Purgatory for nearly 48 hours. Maybe I should have simply written a caption saying "holy bleep...
