Category request: Is there a possibility that we can get the Auto Racing category renamed as Motor Sports? Or just make a new category named Motor Sports? Please.

What, you got some mopedcross & off-road segway links you're itchin' to post? Sewing races? Bathtub Speedboats? Synchronized blender? That speed-cupstacking contest has shown up here, and that's all motor skills if ever such a thing existed! Oh, what about the Lemmy Kilminster Invitational? (Dig it! Motorhead! On a golf course! Hole in one, meet Ace Of Spades! Two great tastes that taste great together!) Hmm. Actually, my (endlessly hilarious, I know) snark aside, that doesn't sound like a bad idea.

I think when the auto racing category was added that this point was raised during the discussion or right after the category was added. It casts a wider net and makes a great deal of sense.

...boogity boogity boogity... Remember that awful hair-metal band, Mr. Big? They had that famous bass player as their anchor so they always had bass solos. That was the sound that he made with his bass, "boogity boogity boogity". It makes me laugh at the '80s even harder.

Let us never speak of Mr. Big again. Their one "hit" does not spring to mind, and I know better than to go look it up. I'm sure they have a Wikipedia entry, and that pains me.

I'm the one who wants to be with you Deep inside I hope you feel it too Waited on a line of greens and blues Just to be the next to be with you

I saw them play at Congress Street Station when I was stationed in Savannah, Georgia... Oh shit, did I just say that out loud?

Don't be dissin' Mr. Big. Billy Sheehan is a freaking bass god. Also of note -- "To Be With You" was written for this young lady.

Sorry to interrupt, but could we have a Cricket category as well? The Ashes are coming up and the World Cup is next year (don't worry - fantasy leagues will be organised).
