See, here in the South we have 2 religions. Football and NASCAR. You try to do away with either of them and you've got BIG trouble. I live in Stillwater, OK and let me tell you, when the Cowboys are playing football, the town just STOPS. If they're home, we in the stadium. When football's over, then we're watching NASCAR. You should see the traffic jams between TX & OK when NASCAR's running....OMG!
Leave us our NASCAR and Football and you could take it without a shot.
That sounds like us Kiwi's with our Rugby and Speedway
