Oscars, Daytona 500… Did You Watch Either?

Two big TV choices last night for sports and entertainment fans: The Oscars and the Daytona 500. One featuring a unique storyline of love, drama and competition, and the other, the Oscars. But if you weren’t dealing with the cable outage affecting thousands across the region, you could have seen both the race and the awards show.

Danica Patrick was the big topic in the Daytona 500, not as a serious race contender, but rather for her historic pole-setting performance in qualifying to place her on point for the 55th running of NASCAR’s premier race. But it was Jimmie Johnson’s race to win, his second career Daytona 500 victory. Danica finished eighth, but led a few laps — another Daytona first — and performed better than many felt she would.

And then there were the Oscars, dominated by the performance of the host, Seth MacFarlane“Argo” won Best Picture, but director Ben Affleck wasn’t nominated for his directing in that film. There was also an appearance from First Lady Michelle Obama to help Jack Nicholson announce the winner of the Best Picture.

If you are a sports fan and/or a fan of film, yesterday was your day to stay in and watch the race and the show. But with the beautiful weather, did you? Let us know in today’s 710 KEEL Poll Question of the Day.
