Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

One of the things I missed in the last few days due to stupid old work was the fact that all you folks who have grown to love watching race truck driver Tina Gordon shill for Sticks-N-Stuff (ONLY $299?! WOOOO!) will have to readjust your brain--last week it was announced that she has a new sponsor, Vassarette, a maker of ladies unmentionables.

They had a big media deal down in Daytona last week, and she was there in her race jumpsuit (no NASCAR driver can EVER be seen unless shown in a driving suit, you know) with her vee-hickle and a bra in her hands. Flashbulbs and microphones and television cameras and all that. One of our local guys had an interview with her, and she was noting that a lingerie-maker sponsorship like this makes sense from a marketing perspective since "40% of our fans wear panties and bras."

Now, judging by what I hear goes on down in the infield, that 40% figure might be a bit high. 'WOO!', as Tina might say.

This really COULD be interesting if she ever actually won a race--you know how drivers keep changing sponsor hats during the post-race interview? Well, changing underwear would be much more interesting.
