Study purports to equate NASCAR viewing with aggressive driving

[B' Spokes: No doubt one of my pet peeves is people who call cyclists Lance Armstrong wannabees, like Ooo that's a really bad character trait trying to better oneself. But more to the point is being a [NASCAR driver name] wannabee a better thing? The following article hints that no it is not.

We used to define "being into sports" as the physical activity we enjoyed doing but now our culture seems to define "being into sports" as "pass me a beer and the TV remote" as if anything short of pro level is detestable. This is in part why we have an obesity epidemic. We need to flip the current conversations so Lance Armstrong wannabees is a good thing and [NASCAR driver name] wannabees is a bad thing, a very bad thing.]

The research found the number of aggressive-driving accidents declined on race days and hypothesized that might be attributable to race fans staying home to watch on TV. Five days after a NASCAR race, however, the number of aggressive-driving accidents and injuries spiked significantly.

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
