For 18 months, Charles Zigler watched nothing but NASCAR. Well, let me rephrase that. For 18 months, Charles Zigler didn't watch anything but was put in front of a TV for NASCAR events. Its not that he didn't like to watch the sport, its just that he was dead.
A woman from Michigan, Linda Chase, decided to keep her husband around to watch NASCAR. I mean, he wasn't doing much else for her. Conversations must have been pretty one-sided. But all joking aside, she kept him around because she has had several people in her life die, and was not ready to let go.
It is a really sad story, but one of the strangest I've ever heard.
