it’s getting hard to like him

Associated Press writer Jenna Fryer interviewed Juan Pablo Montoya recently, here is an excerpt from the article:

Q: I understand Dustin Long of Landmark Newspapers picked you as the subject for one of his Esquire magazine-type interviews. It doesn’t come out until Martinsville, but give me an idea of how it went?

JPM: “It was pretty cool. The questions were very different from the things you normally get asked, so it was cool.”

Q: Yes, but didn’t he ask you about the last time you cried?

JPM: “Oh yes. I don’t remember the last time I cried. Probably back when (wife) Connie and I were boyfriend and girlfriend, many years ago. But I don’t know. I hate, actually, people who cry.”

Ok. My mother always told me that hate was a very strong word, so I should be careful how and when I used it. I’m guessing JP didn’t have that discussion with his mom.

So he hates people who cry?? I’m guessing that now includes his Busch Series Crew Chief Brad Parrott too right?? I mean that’s like saying you hate people who have emotions or breathe air. That’s everybody Juan Pablo!

    This guy has always irritated me and it’s because he is constantly saying such things. You would think, since he is such a “superstar” that SOMEONE would have told him when and where to keep his mouth shut. Now, this does not mean I like it when a driver whines etc…but everyone with a heart cries at one time or another. It’s called being human.
