You scare the heck out of me sometimes.
My list is the same. I loved Oscar, and it was probably the last I followed the NBA.
I followed Nascar 30-40 years ago. I was a big Petty and David Pearson fan.
I remember a story on a situation in a race once between Fireball Roberts and Fred Lorenzo. It was 1965-66. Lorenzo had been "drafting" Roberts and riding his tail all race, and it was peeing him off. There had been bumping and such going on the whole time. As they were coming down the final stretch, and with Lorenzo on his butt, Roberts, still mad as all get out, slammed on his brakes and Lorenzo's car ran into, and up and under FB's car. Both cars obviously crashed and were taken out of the race. It was obviously not a great way to get one's point across when one thinks about it. But it was funny.
