Congratulations to Kevin Harvick and the team of the No. 29 Shell/Pennzoil Chevrolet on winning the night’s race.

While I didn’t like the way the race ended, it doesn’t mean that the whole green/white/checkered idea needs to be revisited. Of course we’d all like the race to end under green but what else can we do? Just because something is lame doesn’t mean you have to change something. Sometimes you just have to live with it. You can’t make people not do something that they don’t know that they’re going to do i.e. cause wrecks.

What else did I learn from watching the Budweiser Shootout? Oh, I dunno that there’s only been one race broadcast and I’m already tired of Digger and his friends.

Earlier in the day was the ARCA race featuring Danica Patrick. I don’t know that there were any other drivers in the race besides her and there in lies the whole reason why I’m irked she’s coming to NASCAR, and it’s not even her fault. I don’t fault her. Let me repeat that so everybody doesn’t get all pissed that I’m hating on Danica. I DON’T FAULT HER. It’s the dissection of her move to NASCAR that is the most ANNOYING THING on the planet.

Oh and one other thing that’s Danica related and not her fault, those damn GoDaddy ads during the Super Bowl. Dude, we know Danica is a girl and that she’s pretty. Could you PLEASE figure out another plot for your ads that consists of something OTHER than chicks ripping their shirts off?? Seriously.

I’m a GoDaddy customer and it irritates me that A.) They think men are that dopey to want to see what happens next when they could just as easily Google “free porn” and B.) They think that women will… I actually don’t know what they thought women would think. Maybe that’s the problem, they didn’t think. I’m all for owning your sexuality and being sexy and all that, but it’s one note, and there’s more to every single woman in the world than just ONE thing.

You can’t really see it from this angle, but that is the coolest Aflac shirt I’ve ever seen. It beats those boring polo shirts sponsors usually make them wear.

I have to admit that when I first saw this image I instantly thought of Teen Wolf, and I say that with all the love in my heart. :)
