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!

you just can’t win that way

Dear Juan Pablo,

Congratulations on winning your first NASCAR Busch Series race! Today’s race in Mexico meant a lot to you and Latinos everywhere. I know that you were really excited and anxious to get a win under your belt, but did you really need to take out your own teammate, Scott Pruett, to do it? Frankly this type of behavior is inexcusable. You just don’t do that type of thing. You had the better car, we all knew it, why couldn’t you have held off and passed him cleanly in another area of the track?

This taints your win and even though you said you didn’t mean to, this is going to follow you around for a while. Don’t you remember just last year when Brian Vickers made that bonehead move at Talladega that took out his teammate Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr.? Yea, many people weren’t very happy with him after that.

Your own Crew Chief, Brad Parrott, was crying after the race because he felt so bad that you screwed over someone on your team. That alone speaks volumes, as it is something that I have never seen in NASCAR before today. You should feel bad, very, very bad! You made a grown man cry!

Ok, ok, so I’m sure this will all blow over in a couple weeks, but don’t think people are going to forget about this. Make sure the next time you win you don’t step on someone else to get there.

Sincerely,
Valli
