RANT

I will go ahead and apologize first. Now that's out of the way. I have started seeing alot of post on this great website that pertain to people looking for answers to questions about something they haven't even done yet, whether it be a race, truck pull (tug-o-war) or whatever. It reminds me of the kids in fast & furious talking about nos and how much money they have in their engines.
If you wanna know who will win any sort of competition DO IT and then come here and tell everyone how you made out. Not clog up the website with garbage and speculation.
Maybe i'm just getting older but it seems to me the younger crowd (in general) is afraid to take a chance on even something as simple and fun as some friendly competition and are always looking for a sure thing in fear of embarrassment. If it bothers them to lose so much maybe they shouldn't compete in the first place or better yet let that fear drive them to win.
I grew up racing competetive motocross and whether I won, crashed or just plain lost it was still fun.

"OK OK Ok... who'd win the Indianapolis 500 if the race were between Al Unser Junior and Mike Ditka driving the Bear's team bus?"....

"Is it the 1985 Chicago Bears that is currently on the bus?"....

"Yes it is"...

"Ditka."

I'm with you... People should just go out and "get 'er done"... I really hate the "can I beat a..." or the "do you think I'll win against..." threads. There's really only one way to find out!
