Getting my hair cut the other day, I decided to initiate some conversation with my barber, a guy in his late sixties who started cutting hair after 20 years on the state patrol. How could I go wrong talking tourney:
Me: See any basketball this weekend?
Ray: No, I went to the race at Bristol this Sunday. That track ain't been the same since they resurfaced it.
Me: Um, yeah.
Turns out, before Bristol was resurfaced a couple seasons ago it was a one-groove track that required liberal use of the front bumper. Since the resurface, it has opened up the track for multiple grooves and side-by-side racing. Apparently, it's a big deal.
