Inspired by the Sports Guy, i'm doing a running diary of the Bud Shootout.
3:02 - ok here we go. pretty standard intro. nice little interview with Johnson, i liked Tony giving him a wet willie.
3:06 - there's just something wrong with seeing the drivers with huge coats on. bet they can't wait to get in their cars. oh boy, HEAT!!!
3:10 - i still get chills any time i see a clip from the 2001 Pepsi 400.
3:15 - i still can't believe NBC or Fox hasn't thrown a wad of cash at Jerry Seinfeld to have him do a commercial with Newman. every time i see him on screen i can't help but go, "newman!!"
3:23 - great national anthem. about time they got someone who can sing. and was that Danica Patrick over with Ken Schrader?
3:33 - was it me, or did Kyle sound like he almost had to have someone feed him his line? Jr should have just come on and said, "Jr here..... do i even NEED an introduction??? Damn skippy. Let's rock."
3:40 - green flag
3:47 - this just isn't Kenseth's day is it?
3:51 - you gotta wonder if Waltrip is sandbagging. i mean, he knows all he has to do is stay on the same lap. just hang back, avoid any potential wrecks, he knows a pit stop is coming..... i guess we'll see.
3:56 - looks to me like Vickers got Mayfield loose and started a chain-reaction from there. please please please let there be no significant damage to Jr's car. Looks like Kyle might've helped Vickers into Mayfield.
4:09 - nice to see they got the "instigator cam" going. where they show the driver what happened as quickly as they can so they can piss him off and hopefully get a good soundbite of him saying something about someone else.
4:15 - come on Carl, they got a bleeping device. go nuts. i mean you'd be wrong since you were both clearly over the yellow line AND you advanced your position, but i'm just dying to hear a driver say, "man that was bullshit!!!
4:22 - i will say this for TNT. they know how to do repitition. they know how to keep showing the same damn commercial/promo over and over and over until you just wanna stab your fucking eyes out. i still have yet to see that show Wanted because they showed it SO MUCH that i said "fuck them i don't care how good the show ends up being i'm not going to watch one fucking episode."
4:27 - you can hear the crowd cheer as Gordon pulls into the pits. gotta love it.
4:35 - the NBA is asking a Rap star to do something for the All-Star game? i never would've guessed.
4:43 - i really hope Kyle doesn't win. he's being a little bitch out there.
4:49 - a black flag for Edwards? ok, NOW he needs to go on the air and say "that was a bullshit penalty!!" fuck that little bitch Busch.
4:58 - well if the treatment of Edwards is any indicator, we're in for a LONG season of horseshit penalties and lack of penalties from NASCAR with the usual "we're NASCAR, we don't have to explain ourselves no matter HOW bullshit our calls are" from them afterwards. Good for Carl taking a stand. Fuck you Helton and fuck you France.
5:05 - i was praying for Tony to take out Busch. then jump him and go apeshit on him. IT'S GO TIME!!!!
5:10 - we better get a damn green-white-checker.
5:17 - i can live with that ending. let's hear some interviews.
5:22 - you know who Tony was talking about.
ok, so to wrap things up.
- fuck Kyle Busch. he's on my shit-list this year already.
- Carl Edwards just got some cool points with me. i like it when someone doesn't just bend over and take it.
- this should be a good Daytona 500 race.
