The Coke Zero 400 that was supposed to run this past Saturday night was postponed to Sunday morning due to rain, and the broadcast interrupted a Lord Of The Rings marathon on TNT. Irate LOTR fans took to Twitter to voice their disappointment and hilarity ensued.
No disrespect to Lord Of The Rings fans, however I struggle to sympathize with the plight of people who complain about not being able to watch an edited version of a 10-year old movie, with commercials, but I digress.
Here are some of the best Twitter responses from the LOTR and NASCAR fans:
I wanna watch Lord of the Rings not Nascar

Wow, TNT just pulled a real fast one on me! How you gon put Lord of the Rings info on the NASCAR race? That's one way to get viewers.

Hey @DIRECTV maybe your channel listing for TNT shouldn't say lord of the rings when you have a nascar race on instead.

Why is NASCAR showing when the channel says Lord of the Rings is on?? Unless the Fellowship found a faster way to Mordor, this sucks!

Lord of the rings is supposed to be on tv but instead TNT is showing nascar and that's the most disappointed I've been in awhile
