Musburger To Call NASCAR

Monday, January 22, 2007
















Again with the NASCAR?!?!?! Yeah....sorry about that, but I find their Marketing Machine absolutely amazing (and Kasey Kahne Dreamy...mmmmm). This is probably old news, but I had no idea that Brent Musburger was going to be the lead guy in the booth for ESPN/ABC's coverage.

Seriously....Disney....the guy can't call football and he's been trying for like 60 years. Ah well....it's your ass.....what's left of it.

Quotes from Musburger via KansasCity.com

  • "I’m looking forward to it on a number of levels."
  • "There are a lot of angles that fascinate me. The color, the sound, the fury."
  • "There is nothing like the sound of the start. Forty-three cars screaming around the corner. It’s like the apocalypse is now. You think the world is about to come to an end. There’s nothing like it."
  • "The fan part will be great. This is not an elitist crowd. I’ve had a few beers with that demographic."
Not quoted as saying...."F'ing ESPN...not putting me on basketball. What the hell am I supposed to do with Football over? Oh I get it.....throw got ole' Brent over to the track."

"A few beers with the demographic" is the line there....

"You are looking LIVE at the same four cars turning left for the third straight hour."

wonder how he'll figure out a way to use the word "youngsters" during each race? Will it be something like, "a lot of redneck youngsters out at the track today folks"

Nascar, like all sport, is a soap opera. It's not just the drive fast, turn left story...it's all the side shows too.

PS- It's never too late to join the Nascar nation!

Brent isn't going to be in the booth, he'll just be the pre-race host.
