I mean, really. So, now that Jimmie Johnson and the No. 48 “Dream Team” went and won two races in a row, catapulting them to the top of the The Chase standings, a lot of people are talking about how freaking boring it is that he could possibly win a 4th Championship in a row.
I am, of course, one of those people that would rather he didn’t win that 4th Championship. I don’t want him to not win it because I don’t like him or because I think it’s bad for the sport, or because I hate someone making history. No, I don’t want him to win it ’cause it’s purely boring!! It’s like watching a football game and watching one team slaughter the other team by going up 40 to zero in the first half. It’s effing boring, people. Nobody wants to watch that.
Watching a team other than your favorite make history isn’t fun. I’m sorry but that’s the truth. Of course I loved it when the 49ers won 2 Super Bowl’s in a row, but when the Patriots did the same thing I couldn’t tell you where I was when it happened. That’s just how it is. Good for them, but I’m not going to be that interested.
I respect the history and the feat, and how much it takes to be the best. Trust me, I get it. It’s a big deal and the 48 has proved they’re insanely good, and if they win this thing then I’ll congratulate them with all of the sincerity in the world.
But what’s wrong with wanting someone else to win it?
And now I’d like to say something that’s been bugging me. It should be duly noted that Jimmie Johnson has a TON of fans. So nobody needs to be running around trying to stick up for him. The man has fans; he has a ton of people out there pulling for him to win this thing, so nobody needs to tell us non-diehard Jimmie Johnson fans that we need to knock it off.
When I go to a race I always see Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson fans. The top-3 driver’s gear I see on people belongs to those guys, hands down.
And frankly, as a Dale Jr. fan I have bigger issues to worry about than whether or not Jimmie wins the Championship this year. Thank you.
