Watching Daytona 500 in Home?

11 replies 191 views Edited Feb 24, 2013

We are curious how many people in Home are racing fans. And are you able to watch it in Home? If you can, are you watching in Home with friends?

 

We are interested in what race fans (and sports fans in general) do in Home. Please tell us your story.

 

Thanks,

Game Mechanics

I don't think watching it in Home is an option with Loot's EOD programming.

As for what I do in Home. I'd say I do everything Smiley Tongue

Not aware of any way of watching it in Home.  Originally the Sportswalk public space we were supposed to watch sports highlights on the TVs, but that seems to have gone away now.

 

The Loot TVs have an MMA channel, that's really the only sports in Home I'm aware of.

 

Presumably the high cost of securing the rights to show the content is the biggest obstacle, since the interest is certainly there in the community.

 

I guarentee I know some people that would be watching it in Home if it were available.

I'm not a big race fan by any means however I will watch races if there's something of interest to me going on.

 

I'm not watching it on HOME but on TV and am getting out of here to watch the race.

 

Go Jeff Gordon but OK to Danica Patrick too.

I'm not much into racing myself, by it's in my family for sure. My grandpa actually owns a couple race cars, but unfortunately not in NASCAR. It's weird to see my lastname on racing shirts (I definitely would not wear it, lol), and for some reason pens too, haha.

 

Racing games are fun, however. Jersquall knows how ..good... I am at driving. And by 'good' I mean horrible, but who has time for specifics.

I love any kind of racing and never miss the Daytona 500. I was in Home earlier for a bit and had the race on another TV nearby. It would be awesome if live sporting events could be broadcast in Home--maybe Game Mechanics can work on making that happen. Smiley Happy

I'm a big racing fan, or I should say used to be...

More an open wheel and "circuit" adept, I used to get up early morning to watch F1 qualification on saturday and races on sundays.

For a long time I tought Nascar was just about turning left... until I followed Jacques Villeneuve in it! WOW Those guys are crazy!!!

Anyways, I dont have much time for it now but if I could watch it with on home my girl who is a HUGE fan you can be sure we would be there. 

I played the Gran Turismo series (3,4,5) and in GT5 you could experience the "Nascar feel" even better feel than the Nascar official game. MAN!!! These car are HEAVY! Racing at those speed, inches aways from another... and that WEIGHT! Nothing to do with lightweigth open wheel...  ZZZOOOOMM!!! ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM!!! Awsome!

The races are a little long thou.  btw, the race is still on right?  Goodbye! Smiley Wink
