Dolores Labs Blog has taken an interesting look at the Sports Illustrated covers for the past 50 some years and found that the covers are trending more towards football player covers and black athletes covers.
Leaving the race on covers issue aside for now, I find it most interesting that basketball overtook football in the spotlight for over a decade and baseball has actually remained pretty constant despite all of its troubles…maybe that makes for good press. The race issue is certainly more of a factor of the rising amounts of black athletes in “major” sports compared to the declining amounts of white athletes in the same sports. The sports covered however is an interesting indication of the increasing and decreasing popularity of the sports as a whole.
In the grand scheme of things, this doesn’t mean all that much, but it is always neat to look at the trends in the coverage of sports from the publishing world.
Whores of the world unite! Finally a hero steps forth to write a playbook for all y’all interested in gittin’ yerself some NASCAR cock. Before it was all touch and go, hit or miss and suck or blow but now it’s smooth fuckin’ and golddiggin’ thanks to Liz Allison. If Ralph Hinckley had an instruction book like this (or any instruction book), he might not have been cancelled after three seasons.
Allison has written a book called The Girl’s Guide to Winning a NASCAR Driver which gives “ladies” tips on how to marry a NASCAR driver. Here are some of her money shot tips:
– No big jewelry and forget high heels at a track.
– Don’t be a pit lizard and go after married drivers.
Let the driver lead with the goodnight kiss (but lead with the handjob).
In addition to these amazing tips, Allison also lets readers in on the driver’s favorite hangouts in Charlotte.
“It’s interesting how these people meet, because racing is a very interesting way of life. … How could you ever meet one of these guys? And does true love really happen at a race track when the cars don’t have back seats? Ok maybe I added that last part but I assume that’s a known known or a known unknown.
Allison was married to the late Davey Allison so she has first-hand knowledge. This is pretty much like getting tips on the pimp game from Bishop … sorry, Archbishop Don Magic Juan.
This is why mom always said “No racing couches down a hill!” when I was a little boy. Be careful watching it…people look like they got hurt REAL bad on this one. Not sure if this is a sport, its just a couch flying downhill real fast…but hey, if cars flying around a circle real fast is a sport, then SO IS THIS! Seriously, people look like they got ruined on this…I am almost sorry I posted it but hey, that is what Random Video of Horrific Violence Thursdays are for. Watch:
