So the news in KC can sometimes lack that certain something..you know..important stuff you want to know about. Not fluff and junk that isn't that interesting to begin with. Now don't get me wrong. I enjoy stories about people helping each other or interesting things people are doing around town but I saw something last night that could have been left off of the 10 o'clock news.
This weekend is the big Nextel NASCAR race in KC Kansas. People come from everywhere to witness this event and lots of them bring their RV's or camp or what-have-you. I guess in the past there have been portable showers available to NASCAR fans to shower the stink off. FEMA has commendered all of them in the wake of Hurrican Katrina and Rita. So you guessed it..no showers for the NASCAR fans for FOUR DAYS!
So what does the news do? They go to the race track and ask people if they mind STINKING for four days! Hello? Is this news? I think not. All of the people they interviewed said "We don't mind stinking for four days..who cares? This is NASCAR..how much more redneck can you get than not showering." All I have to say is EWWWW. That grosses me out. I wouldn't go. I'd be staying at a hotel somewhere so I could shower. Can you imagine the smell that will be wafting from the raceway come Sunday when the series is over?
I'll be sure to tune into the news tonight to see if they have an "update" on this breaking story.
