Now that the Olympics are over, it is time to turn my attention to more pressing issues. It is now time to get everyone I know to move to Texas. The first friend I've decided to separate from the herd is Jim. I realized today that the time to make my move was right when I heard this story
on NPR today on my way home.
TOP TRUCKERS COMPETE IN HOUSTON
"Nearly 400 professional truck drivers from all over the country are in Houston. They're competing in the annual Truck Driving Championship."
Jim, Texas is the kind of place where they talk about Truck Driving Championships
on NPR. National Public Motherfucking Radio
has stories about truck driving.
And the event itself is everything you can imagine. There are cheerleaders. For trucking. And den mothers. What do the den mothers do? I have no idea.
But they got some.
Truckers compete in eight - yes, eight
- different classes of trucks. Straight truck, 3-axle, 4-axle, 5-axle, Twins, 5-Axle Sleeper & Auto Transporter, Tank Truck, and Flatbed.
And don't be late, or else you'll miss the Parade of Equipment at 8 am sharp on Saturday!
