May 26 2016INDY-MANIA
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.
