    T-Mobile to NASCAR

    Deutsche Telekom may buy the train wreck that is Spirit Nextel and take over as the primary sponsor for NASCAR. Thus making it the T-Mobile series.

    I can already hear the post-race interview "the T-Mobile Tampex Tampon Chevy was pretty good today, we just didn't have enough for the Massengill Ford"

    Looks like Clearwire are merging with SexTel (Sprint-Nextel).

    Maybe we'll have a Clear Cup?

    As soon as they ditched cycling, they signed to be sponsor of the BMW-Sauber F1 team. I think the secondary sponsor behind Petronas.

    It seems businesses where managed differently back then, they seemed to last longer. These days have turned form ventures business to vulture business. Hopefully Telekom has better management then Sprint.

    They need to get a retired cyclist to drive. Der Jan could be crushing the souls of das gut ol boisen. Now we just need to get VW or MB or Audi to get involved. Toyota needs some competition.

    nascar should be sponsored by either beer or cigarettes. anything else strays from reality of the fans. and becomes homogenized, feel good, political correctness.

    Guns, Ammo, Camo, Beer, Smokes, and Fast Food are all legitimate sponsors.

    One day at lunch, I heard the annoying combination of distorted bass and soup can muffler and looked out the window of Schlotzsky's to see a lowered VW Jetta emblazoned with all kinds of Japanese lettering and stickers. All I could think was that it was some sort of bizarre hip kid homage art work entitled "People whose asses we kicked in World War II.
