Another bad omen?

Maybe it's because all those empty seats at the Brickyard were still on my mind, but I noticed something Sunday afternoon that I might not have noticed otherwise.

Occasionally I will drop in at the local Buffalo Wild Wings to watch sports on TV without a notebook (the sportswriter's version of relaxing), and Sunday I noticed something else NASCAR might have occasion to be nervous about: Of 21 TVs in the bar area, not one was tuned to the Pocono race.

Not. One.

I tried to think if I'd ever seen that before. Came up blank.
