there’s something about tony (stewart)

Do I have a crush on Tony Stewart? I think I have a crush on Tony Stewart!

So this kind of goes back a ways, but I started thinking about it after seeing photos of Tony at an appearance he did last night for Xfinity in Jacksonville, Florida.

He was on hand, with Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown, for the grand-opening celebration of the new River City Xfinity® store location.

Official details from the event:

The store showcases the innovation and speed of Xfinity products, and is designed entirely around the needs of customers, offering consumers an opportunity to explore and interact directly with the latest Xfinity products and services. Stewart recently filmed a TV commercial for Comcast highlighting the incredible speed of the Xfinity Wireless Gateway that powers the nation’s fastest Internet and in-home Wi-Fi service. During the event, Stewart signed autographs for 250 NASCAR fans, and Comcast Florida made a $15,000 donation for The Tony Stewart Foundation, which last year marked 10 years as a charitable foundation and has awarded $5.2 million to outstanding organizations serving children, animals and injured motor racing drivers in 41 of 50 states, including Florida.

Ok, so back to the crush. Do you see the photos of him (above) from the event? He looks REALLY GOOD now. Like, breaking his leg was definitely a blessing in disguise ‘cause the guy is looking purdy damn good.

Ever since I met Tony I’ve always thought he was pretty charming and generally likable. And I’m sure the fact that in the few times I’ve interacted with him he’s been nothing but nice to me helps, like, A LOT.

I know, I know. He can be a pill, but I think I kind of like that? I think I really like that he’s a jerk to people sometimes, especially when he gets pissed on the track. I mean, I’d rather date someone who is more assertive than passive. This probably has more to do with the fact that I’ve been on dates with guys that didn’t have ambition or weren’t particularly excited about anything going on in their lives. Guys that lack passion for something, anything, really bug me because I’m passionate about a lot of things. So maybe that’s why Tony appeals to me?? He’s the last person on the planet you could accuse of having a lack of passion or confidence.

What is going on with me?? I don’t know, you guys!!! :)

    This is too funny. I used to think so too, then I was on the receiving end of this wrath. Now he is my 43rd favorite. ;)

    Oh gawd, sounds like you need a session woman! LOL Meh, you can have him! Thought of you today when I heard Ron Malec’s name being thrown around as possible CC for Junior. Now that would be a HOT team!

    Hmmmm….

    Skinny Tony usually means Relationship Tony. :D

    Either he has really taken care of himself post-op or he’s got a new honey. ;)

    He and Kasey are good friends, so it’s hard to hate him. Hey Sumer, tell us the story of how you incurred Tony’s wrath!
