One of the great moments in all of racetrack simulcast history today.

We were bustin' a gut watching Jim and Katie bustin' a gut.

Good looking t-shirt, too!

What happened that was so funny?

May not fit in this post, but I saw Zoe Cadman yesterday as a host on HRTV with Aaron Vecruysse. I was watching the show for a good 20 minutes before I recognized her. She cut her hair really short!

Jim and Katie wore some great t-shirts to open the show.

A great midwestern sport, cornholing.

It's where you throw those beanbags across the lawn to the big board with a hole in it.

Whew,  thanks Terry, I was thinking something worse.

I don't think I'd wear one of those shirts anyway.

I didn't get to follow any tracks/signals again, but I'll explain what I know, and hope it goes along with what others were doing, and/or also laughing about.

The term 'cornhole' has 2 meanings.  A recent meaning is the name of a popular, simple game with the beanbags(cornbags) tossing them at a target and the hole, kind of a replacement for the now outlawed "Lawn Darts.'  I always heard of this type of game just called "bean bag tossing", but the game is now often refere to as "Cornhole"  Now great family fun, it is often played in parks and at tail gate parties.

The other meaning of 'cornhole', likely a much much older term, refers to a person's butthole.  Not sure if that's because in the old days of outhouses they used to use corn cobs before toilet paper was invented, or that some people don't digest their corn fully and sometimes have pieces out it in their stools.  Obviously, to some people, 'corn hole', 'corn holing' and 'getting corn holed' has very different connotations.  There are appearently at least 2 terms commonly used, perhaps in the south and midwest, "Pie Hole" and "Corn Hole", with the "Pie Hole" refering to a person's mouth, and terms like "Shut your pie hole." meaning to tell someone to shut up. 

Anyway, when I first heard of this 'new game' called 'Corn Hole' and people saying they liked to get together and 'corn hole' I laughed my ass off. 

I also got that shocking kind of a laugh when the vehicle once known as a "hum-vee" became called the "Hummer", and people suddenly started talking about how much they liked hummers and how they were looking forward to getting one.  I and others, however, used to associate 'the term hummers' with what Monica gave Pres. Clinton. 

Guess it used to be shocking when people started saying they 'screwed up', but that became part of common language.

Steve, when I heard Terry use that term, I wondered if he knew what that term used to mean.  It would be funny if they had t-shirts referring to the original meaning.  Thanks for the clarification, Steve, I was starting to wonder about Terry more than I usually do.

While the chances I didn't know already the difference were infinitesimally small to begin with, all doubt would have been erased by the explanation given by Jim and Katie.

Oh, that's right, I forgot, you live in a cave without sound and with surcharges.

Interesting slogan: "We Are Cornhole Gear!"

Hmm. What's next?  "We're Here!  We're Gear!  Get Used To It!" Huh

Frankly, I know I would enjoy the game, I used to enjoy Lawn Darts.

Where I came from, this was known as "Jarts". I think we still have the set up at the cabin.

Now, it makes sense.  Way different than what the corn term meant!  Hope Jim and Katie are aware of that.

Trust me, Jim and Katie were quite aware of what they were talking about. It's what made the whole segment so absolutely hilarious.

I hope other people appreciated it as much as I did. It made my day before the day even started. It's part of what makes the friendly, in-town family-owned track so much more fun to visit than the cold, impersonal, corporate stick-up-the-butt track out in the suburbs. Wait ... bad choice of words there, perhaps.
