    What defines a soccer mom?

    or a Nascar dad?


    I read about these demographics but I have no clue what would define such a person.

    Are soccer moms stay at home moms?

    Are nascar dads middle class guys who watch football and swill PBR?

    Well Dave, one would think that a soccer mom,
    is a mom that takes the kids to soccer games.
    And a Nascar dad, would be a dad that watches Nascar...
    Is there something I'm missing about the question?

    The terms are just "buzz words" that campaign advisers came up with during the last, and the up-coming Presidential elections. These are the key groups of undecided voters that can make or break an election.

    Buzz is that for 2008 the key demographic group will be the Gay Badminton Uncles :)

    Soccer mom's drive vans while sipping their Starbuck's mocha's and doing their makeup. They have no interest in driving above (or close to) the speed limit. When you get in back of one, all you can do is tailgate and brake while shaking your head and slamming your fist on the steering wheel. We need to get soccer mom's OFF the road to relieve the traffic bottlenecks all around the country!

    HAHA- you guys forgot one thing about the soccer/suv mom- they are the ones that backup and do NOT know the dimensions or what they are driving and tend to sometimes even hit the car behind them...

    I saw one backup over a curb, I wonder if there was a car there!

    stereotypically, they are self absorbed, careless, self important moms who's sole purpose in life is their kids and the world be damned if anything gets in their way such as a person driving the speed limit.

    Brilliant explanation. Add a cellphone and we're done.

    The new backlash is soccer mom pride as seen with the proliferation of these absurd magnets on the tailgate of said minivan, most of which are in the shape of--you guessed it--a soccer ball.

    You forgot to mention the mom talking on the cell phone with the ENTIRE soccer team in the SUV with her, screaming at the top of their lungs and flipping off the driver that is tailgating them!

    Thank you for your responses.

    I was unsure if these were negative or positive "labels" for the given demographic in our society. I have seen the soccer balls on several trucks. Now I know what it symbolizes.

    I have a phobia of soccer moms, though they haven't come up with a name for it yet.

    I would have to say that Plano and Frisco TX are the worst spots. We also have two of the worst intersections in the country. :(

    I've actually seen some hot ones around here (soccer moms, not gay badminton uncles). But I wouldn't touch them with a ten-foot checkbook.

    I saw a movie once where a soccer mom dropped off her kids at the soccer field and went home to meet the pool man before Nascar dad got home.

    Amazingly enough it was a true story; featured last month on Orca.... errrrrr Oprah. Turns out the pool man was an IRL fan and they ended up throwing chairs at each other while the audience chanted, "Orca, Orca, Orca."

    They are going to re-run it in syndication before the Daytona 500 next year. Check it out!

    Practical is not always the right choice. If that were the case, we all would be driving 3 cylinder, 65 HP, automatic, family busses shaped like toasters with lumber on the sides.
