September is a Sports Spectacular for Savvy Spectators

September is a Sports Spectacular for Savvy Spectators

For those of us blessed to enjoy more than one sport, September is much more than back-to-school sales. In fact, it is a veritable cornucopia of sports. Our televisions, tablets, and mobile devices are continuously swimming in baseballs, footballs, soccer balls, pucks, and races.

So let’s take a look at what makes this such a wonderful sports month.

Kurt Busch’s attempted the NASCAR Indy Double because he’s a Racer

Kurt Busch Doubles Down

Seriously, it is that simple, that is what the man said. When asked why he was compelled to do the Double, Kurt Busch replied, “I’m a racer.” I’m sold, you’re a racer, but the Double is different territory.

While most of America was getting ready for a Sunday barbecue, Kurt Busch was in an Indy Car at the Indianapolis Speedway for 500 miles of racing as a rookie in the Indianapolis 500. That was to be the start of his day.

IndyCar could learn something from NASCAR a.k.a Don’t finish the race under yellow!

2013 Indianapolis 500 ends under Caution

Yesterday, The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, the Indianapolis 500 ended under caution. I repeat, it ended under a yellow flag! Thus race winner Tony Kanaan followed the pace car for the final two laps to take the checkered flag. This is legal as it follows the current IndyCar rules, it’s just not good for the sport. Hello, is any one there? This is racing isn’t it?

Crashes, twisted metal & fire. Not Michael Bay, Daytona

2012 Daytona 500 Crash

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! It’s Daytona. No wait, Monday, Monday, Monday it’s Daytona. After a very long wait the NASCAR season finally got it’s first “Gentleman and Danica, start your engines!” under the lights Monday night at Daytona International Raceway.

It was wrecks, fire and delays. And it wasn’t a Michael Bay remake of Days of Thunder. It was the actual race.
