Are You a Baseball Chick?

Over the next few months, Talk-Sports is gonna name the Baseball Chicks of the Web. Fans can submit videos on YouTube showing us that you are a baseball chick. Include the words talksportsnet baseballchick (baseballchick is one word) in the title or description of the video to be eligible for selection (actually... so we can easily find them). 

Here are some ideas for your videos.

We will select 2 to 10 baseball chicks, depending on how many videos we get. Those selected will be official Talk-Sports Baseball Chicks and they will be featured on the Talk-Sports website. The Baseball Chicks will then compete online to become the Ultimate Baseball Chick.

All selected Baseball Chicks will receive free bronze memberships on Talk-Sports. The Ultimate Baseball Chick will receive 2 tickets to a baseball game at their local MLB ballpark. If you would like to co-sponsor this contest by adding to our prize pool, then please contact us at webmaster@talk-sports.net.

Brett Favre Nude Pics?
si_16

Allegations that Brett Favre is creeping on Jenn Sterger. See video. The video is NSFW.

I'd like to add that this isn't the first time Jenn Sterger was mentioned on Talk-Sports or became a hot term on Google. She appears to be looking for the attention.

Canadian Tire Series at Barrie Speedway

Once a year, the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series comes to the Barrie Speedway. My son and I went to the September 11th race this year. It was an awesome show. Four races and lots of extracurricular fun.

156

The racing starts with three track races.

The winner of the Thunder Cars race, Jim Beleskey.

160

That's me at the track. Note I'm standing only 10 feet from the track. Your not allowed against the fence, but you could be 2 feet away from the action.

162

Excellent beer and poutine.

163

There's a racecar tire changing game. Very fun. Not my first time, but I still suck.

JR Fitzpatrick's car. He was in 3 Nationwide races this year and finished in the top 10 twice.

171

Between qualifying and the race, there's an autograph session where you can walk on the track and meet all the drivers.

181

182

Boogidy, boogidy, boogidy, let's go racing boys.

183

Video of the entire field.

Last lap of the race. Don Thomson Jr passes DJ Kennington on turn 2 of the last lap. Kennington passes back coming out of turn 4. What a finish.

Kennington's victory lap.

His fourth win of the year. He finished the year with 5 wins and won the series championship.

189

Some of the cars that were on display. Kerry Micks #02 Dickies Ford Fusion.

168

DJ Kinnington's #17.

The Track Bar

Ever wonder what they mean about loosening or tightening the track bar. I really never understood until I watch this video.

Keselowski Stalls his Burnout

Brad Keselowski stalls twice while attempting a burnout after his Michigan Nationwide win in August. I spliced 4 videos together to make this full compilation. He lost low gear earlier in the race, which explain the stalled burnouts. They race around Michigan in 4th gear. You only need low gear at Michigan when exiting the pits and doing the burnout :)

Practice at Michigan International Speedway

Summer Vacation, Day 27, August 13th 2010.

Good morning NASCAR racers, from the top of my RV overlooking the track. Friday is practice and poll day.

018

Video from practice.

Even from the ground (2nd row), we could see the race.

042

Awesome National Guard tailgating setup at the entrance to turn 1.

049

From the infield, you can take the tunnel to the outside where the fan zone is located.

050

Reverse view of the grandstand.

059

Chad and Jimmie stopped by for a pic. Loser.

082

The infield has several humongo screens so you can enjoy more of the action.

084

Grandstands are pretty full for a poll day.

086

Enjoying a beer.

091

The RV rooftops at night.

100

And what would a NASCAR race be without Heluva Good! dip. The store in the infield is 24 hours and well stocked.

106

Biffle drives by turn 1 in practice.

015

Bill Elliot.

043

David Gilliland.

048

Arriving at Michigan International Speedway

Summer Vacation, Day 26, August 12th 2010.

After a 10 day break from our summer RVing, we jumped into the motorhome and headed to the Michigan International Speedway. We passed thru Saline, MI and did some shopping at the local Walmart. We had a last meal before our 4 day camp inside the racetrack at a Wings Pizza n Things. The restaurant-bar was very cool, beer was cheep, but the service was slow even with more staff on hand than customers.

004

The lineup getting in was crazy, but considering how many RVs there was, it was amazing that we were parked within one hour or lining up.

001

Video of us crossing the racetrack into the infield.

The high banked turns at Michigan. We were camped inside turn 1.

008

Michigan, unlike any other racetrack we've been to, is all about the tailgating camping experience.

Leaving Pocono

Summer Vacation, Day 25, August 2nd 2010.

The morning after the big race. The RV is a mess.

072

Actually, the entire Pocono infield is a mess.

070

In fact, I'm a mess.

069

I can't believe we got a fenceline RV spot two years running. Last year, we stayed in spot 6.

061

Before I started packing up. At this point, there's on a few dozen RVs left in the infield.

059

Leaving via the tunnel in turn 2.

073

Video leaving thru the tunnel. At the very end of the vid, my mirror hits the sidedoor. "Oh Jezz!"

On the way home, we drive right by The Glen, the next race. The two Sprint trucks pulling off followed us from Pocono.

081

And then we went home and the vacation was temporarily over :_(

Singing the National Anthem

A week ago, two of my kids sang the national anthems at the Blue Jays games. It was the 2nd time that they done this. Pic and vids follow.

039

Excuse the shaky video. The camera was on super zoom.

No EASports NASCAR 10

Last month, I found out that EA Sports is not working on a NASCAR 10 and is no longer interested in the NASCAR license. There is  no NASCAR specific game currently in planning. NASCAR will now be part of the Grand Turismo game, but won't have a game on it's own. I think this is a big mistake by NASCAR. Video games are a great way of creating young fans. Without a game, with current cars, drivers, etc., young fans will flock to other sports.
