Dear GYA, I think it's safe to say that the entire NASCAR community is pissed off at Donovan McNabb for saying I wasn't an athlete. Football players have no idea what it's like to sit for a couple of hours with your hands at 10 and 2 while occasionally applying pressure on the gas pedal. Did I also mention that we don't get to eat any snacks while we drive? No pretzels, no Funyuns, no chipotle ranch Corn Nuts -- nothing! Driving a car/sitting on a professional level is exhausting! Anything happening today after I do some extreme sitting? - Jimmie Johnson
Jimmie, I know what you mean. One summer, my dad drove me and my two sisters from Michigan to Maine. He was a true MVP that season. Here's what's up for today:
Rapper R.A. The Rugged Man will be at The Salt Haus this evening. Potluck and Dine Krew are also on the bill. The show stars at 7. Tickets are $18.
If you're into inspirational Christmas rock, then don't miss The Trans-Siberian Orchestra at Energy Solutions Arena. There are two shows: one at 4, another at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $30.
Post-hardcore band The Polar Bear Club will be onstage at Kilby Court. Citizen and Diamond Youth are also performing. The show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12.
