Foals in winter coats, white girls of the north

A couple of weeks ago, my Navajo friend emailed me to see what I'd been up to.

I sent a short response, and asked if he was doing anything fun for the weekend. He said he was going to Phoenix.

I asked if it was for work or for play.

He wrote back: "I’m going down for NASCAR. I’m gonna check me out some white women*!!!"

My response**: "You're the brownest redneck I know."








*He and I were close friends in high school, but lost contact for a number of years. A few years ago a friend of ours got married in Salt Lake City, and he and I both flew in for that. He walked up to me, looked around, and the first words out of his mouth were, "Where the white women at?" Keep in mind this is the first time we'd seen each other since high school. It's become a running joke, and now every time he calls it's the first thing he says.

**I should've added that he really doesn't want any part of a woman he'll find at a NASCAR race.

Marketing demographic research shows your predjudice against Nascar babes to be unfounded.

No. He really doesn't. Those women are SCARY!

Not a Nascar fan here but the women that end up in the winners circle hanging all over the jeff Gordons of this world? Thats what I choose to think about when thinking Nascar Women and them some badasses

Wouldn't he technically be the reddest redneck you know?

I am tickled that you two have reconnected. He was always pretty quick.

That's just pretty funny all the way around & there's nothing better than a joke after years of distance. Always.

I'm not sure if I am offended or not. I love NASCAR. I get my love of NASCAR from my British step-father. What is that about? I have never even considered if anyone finds me to be of the red-neck persona. Nah, I'm not a red-neck. Just a classy sports enthusiast.

But I pretty much love all sports though, except Central American Football. Because I value my life. I can do without all of those crazed fans.
