WNIR SPORTS POLL

THE FRENCH FRYER with Steve French

INDY-MANIA
French Fryer

     Sports fans in America love big events.  That's why, for instance, a soccer exhibition featuring a great Spanish team can draw 100,000 in Ann Arbor, while a friendly USA game in Texas can draw almost no one.  So on a busy Memorial Day weekend, here comes the Indianapolis 500.  The interest in Indy-style open wheel racing in this country is basically gone.  Yet the tickets are for this year's 500 are sold out, and going on the internet for up to $800 (!?).  Why?  Because it's the 100th INDY 500!!!  Now no one may know the racers, or in fact care who wins, but it's a big event that will happen only once.  And that, apparently, is good enough for America's sports fans.
