Boogity Boogity Boogity Amen

     I was brought up in a Nascar-drenched home. Daytona, Talladega and Charlotte were events to be respected and watched with reverence. We went for many years without missing a stint in the stands or infield for the 500 or Firecracker. Neil Bonnett was Dad's friend, Mom was crazy about Dale, and names like France, Penske and Wheeler were regularly bandied about. I've spent time with Richard Petty, Rusty Wallace and other drivers of note. I still hesitate to call my parents when a race is on TV—to do so risks no small degree of wrath.

    I thought I had seen and heard just about everything one can experience at a gathering of the Nascar Faithful . . . until tonight. Please watch and listen to Pastor Joe Nelms at Nashville Superspeedway. Please. I promise you, you haven't heard this particular invocation before.

     I'm pretty sure I've not heard a reference to anyone's "smokin' hot wife" in a public prayer, though I could be mistaken. Thanks to my sharp-eyed cousin Debi, you can see for yourself what a "smokin' hot wife" looks like:

     I did not realize the Lord cared so much about engines and vehicular technology. I've always thought he was more concerned with Alabama football.

Love from Delta.


  1. Now that was spiritual!

  2. Thanks for the youtube. I was watching. I fell out of my chair; that was truly ROTFLOL. I did look outside for a lightning strike. None came, so it proves that God does have a sense of humor.

  3. love living in the south.. want to see that smokin' hot wife. thanks for the laugh!
    Thank you God for the Delta, Delta, Delta Blog, my cousin's wit and wisdom, and my school laptop to stay in touch, and my smokin hot trophy husband!

  4. Unca Reese, I am glad you enjoyed it. I do not plan on attending church services in Lebanon, Tennessee anytime soon, but I'll bet it's a hoot.
    Debiree, I would like to see his version of a smokin' hot wife, too. Thank you God for a beautiful cousin who reads my stuff. <3

  5. You know when you get a bunch of Baptist NASCAR fans together, you speak from the heart and the tongue will know not what is speaks.
    It also seems the "turn a blind eye" is something this pastor does a lot. "Smokin hot wife" show he failed to use the good eye to look at the wives of the drivers...

    LOL, It was a great time for all fans and will be remembered for a long time.
