Staff Pick: Monster Truck Nationals

This is the type of thing that has commercials with a man yelling at you to come on down and watch the big boys tear stuff up. Then there's the obligatory pan to a hot blonde in the audience.

I'll admit, this is usually not my scene, but something about giant hunks of tire and metal crushing lesser hunks of tire and metal makes me want to hoot and holler, chug a beer and then slap on some overalls and go back to work on my daddy's dairy farm.

It's a nice reminder of my country-girl beginnings, but I suggest this battle of heavy metal for anyone who likes witnessing reckless abandon, automotive excellence and daring demolitions where no one (fingers crossed) gets hurt.
