    Springsteen played to about 10,000 last night Plus NASCAR RACE COVERAGE

    There was a free Springsteen concert Sunday in Dallas to go along with the final 4. They talked all week about how they were only going to allow 40,000 in to the park and about how tight security would be to keep others out. They went as far to outline the streets they would close to keep people from trying to get in.

    Mother nature dumped rain on DFW all day yesterday. The place where Springsteen played was under roof so the show went on but the spectators were out in the rain. To make matters worse, security wouldn't let people in with umbrellas. It looked pitiful on TV and it looked like a lot less than 10,000. More like 5,000.

    In addition, there was supposed to be a big NASCAR race yesterday. It got rained out too.

    DFW just has no luck when it comes to putting on big events. :facepalm: Good think Jerry world has a roof for the NCAA championship game tonight.

    Race just started under green/yellow. The laps count but the pace car is still leading them around but no passing and they are only going about 70

    THe track driers are still out on the track. The cars are going by and the jets on the driers are damaging cars.

    By the way, this race is the "Duck Dynasty 500." All of those hillbillys from the show are here and acting as starters, pace car drivers, etc. One of the moms sang the national anthem. I've never watched the show but it looks like the O Brother where art thou people are running the race.

    It kind of surprises me. It's like they've given up on trying to attract non-rednecks to their races. Larry the cable guy is there too.

    Dale Jr. hit the wall and his car caught on fire. The front and rear were both being consumed as he climbed out. I heard one of his crew on the radio say "I don't know if we are going to be able to fix that or not."

    Did HAL like Bruce or something? I never noticed him talking about him.
