i'm sure the TV will be mentioning this in great detail all day today and tomorrow but i thought i'd at least throw my meager 2 cents in. so 5 years ago today the NASCAR family and the sportsworld lost one of the greatest personalities it will ever know. i'm not really sure what to say. everything to be said has already been said.
- there's an article on foxsports.com talking about how NASCAR has flourished since his death. flourished..... yes. gotten better? no. NASCAR is losing its soul. to say it sold out is too cliche, i'm just going to say that in the quest to get to the top they've shown they don't care who they step on en route and they don't really care to remember who helped them get there. sad really, but not surprising.
- you just know that Jr is going to get 50 million questions about his dad this weekend. it's going to make me sick to my stomach each time, but i guess i've accepted the shitheads in the media continuing to cash in on it.
i sure wish we had him back.
