How's the language at your favourite sporting event. We've been going to the stock car races in Oyster Bed for the past 18 years and have never heard anything like I did on Saturday night. A lady (about 70 years old) was cheering for her grandson - and anyone that happened to pass him was call an F*&%ing so and so!! There were many kids around and I was very upset. What do you think - should I have said something??..or leave it to the parents of the kids that were there??

I can't believe that someone in this day and age would make a statement like you just made "SD".
If you went to an opera and heard someone swear would you condemn everyone who was there.
I guess if you want to keep a closed mind and judge everyone by what you consider to be facts and not a figment of your imagination there is not much anyone can do.
Brings back to mind the old island saying: "BETTER TO KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT AND HAVE EVERYONE THINK YOU A FOOL THAN TO OPEN IT AND REMOVE ALL DOUBT."

Steel Dragon - are you like this all the time - or are you just having a bad day. I don't consider myself a "vulgar person". Obviously you're missing out on the great sport of stock car racing. Maybe you should get out more! (cause it sounds like you've been cooped up a bit toooooo long!!)

I agree LittleE, try hanging around the rinks on PEI during the winter, usually the ones cursing and swearing are the professionals (Dr's, lawyers, accountants, etc...) its unreal. I guess money can't buy happiness.

Never hold your farts in. They travel to your brain and that's where shitty ideas come from.

Well, dang it all to heck.

I must be *really* vulgar since I have been going to the stock car racing track at Oyster Bed Bridge for over 20 years :(

I'll really have to pass the word along to the Director of Information Technology at DVA, who ... *gasp* ... not only attends races at Oyster Bed Bridge but travels south to 5 or 6 NASCAR events each year!!! (and I've seen his boss there on occasion also ... ADM's are sooooo vulgar, eh?)

And I guess I should let the Chief Information Officer of the PEI government know that he is sullying his reputation by not only attending the races at Oyster Bed Bridge, but by also *gasp* driving in the Enduro races!!!

And I guess that I should change my family doctor since he is a regular at the stock car track in Oyster Bed Bridge as a spectator and races his dragster at the drag strip.

And those cabinet ministers who get in the driver's seat for the Camp Gencheff race ... ooooo, I bet their popularity will take a nosedive ... especially those two who are regular spectators through the season.

Yes SD ... there are "vulgar" people at stock car races. They are also at hockey games, baseball games and horse races. There are also a lot of decent people (and their families) who attend.

LittleE ... yes, you should have said something. Both my ex and my soon-to-be-bride never hesitated to have a word with anyone using excessive foul language within earshot of children.

Not to worry LittleE, he hasn't attended any of the M&G's to date (although I am hoping that he will make an exception this Saturday). And besides, he is a pussycat when you get him away from a keyboard :wink:

Kreskin I am not critizing professionals, my point was that it is in all walks of life not just at the drags.

If you want to here curseing and swearing all you have to do is walk down Kent St between Capt Sub and the Gate lots of colorful people conversations and vulgar language.

That was the point that I was making as well, view.

I can't comment about the people who attend the drag races, since I have never attended them. I am purely a stock car race fan. But I suspect that the same thing applies ... a few vulgar people in the crowd of generally decent people.

All right, all right, all right!

You're all correct - I take it back, and I apologize.

Sing 50 choruses of "I SAW THE LIGHT" "SD" while standing on your head with a mouth full of "BUDS" finest and we will consider forgiving you. :wink: :D :lol:

Hey, Champ, I've become a goodwill ambassador for stock car racing - what more could you want.

Howzis for a promotional campaign slogan?

"TAKE YOUR WIFE TO STOCK-CAR RACING - SHE'LL NEVER FORGET IT......but she might eventually forgive you!"

OR

"STOCK-CAR RACING - THE SPORT OF KINGS!"

"WHAT THIS COUNTRY NEEDS IS MORE STOCK-CAR RACING"

"STOCK-CAR RACING - FEEL THE EXCITEMENT!"

Yes? No?
