When I first saw that Monster Jam was coming to Washington, DC, I disregarded it as something for little boys. But isn’t that what I’ve been saying this whole time about stereotyping our little girls? Not to mention when I was a little boy, I always wanted to go to one? So, I got tickets.
There were plenty of cool stunts, massive trucks walking on its back two tires and spinning like a whirling dervish, even a few crashes, the trucks exterior coming undone. It was loud. And they made it as fan-friendly as possible. I don’t follow the sport of Monster Trucks so I couldn’t tell how serious they were about competing but I did read that they can make a decent living off of it.
But I was glad to see a couple of female drivers. In a sport that has to be overdosing on testosterone, it’s good to see that woman can excel in it if they chose so.
