Vrooooooom

Well, Nascar has started with a bang, huh? Jimmie won Daytona, but it's clouded by his crew chief pushing the envelope (read: cheating) and getting suspended, etc. The thing that sucks the most when the teams go too far and get caught doing something that is illegal is that the fans (like me) have to be disappointed. Screw the sponsors and the owners and the rest of them. All of those people make a hell of a lot of money because of us, the fans. So, it sucks when your team lets you down, but what I see is that they all do it. And, of course, a year later you don't hear or remember that at last year's Daytona Robby Gordon, Ricky Rudd, Junior, and a bunch of others all tried to slide unapproved parts through inspection (read about it here).

Last year the big news was Harvick cheating. I admit it, I was on that bandwagon, talking my crap, but what about all the others trying to sneak things through: Vickers, Sadler's Busch car, Schrader, Kasey Kahne, not to mention in one race alone there were problems from Kenny Wallace, Bobby Hamilton Jr, Casey Mears, Kyle Busch, Dale Jarrett, Mike Bliss, Jason Leffler, Carl Edwards, and Jeremy Mayfield!!! In 2004 Biffle & Kahne both got caught with unapproved Spoiler adjustments... um, lets see - that helps with aerodynamics - the same thing that Jimmie's window problem would help with. Why aren't people hating on them for that? And, really, besides car mods, what about on the track? How is Tony flying down the race track to push Kenseth into the grass NOT cheating? Or Junior's solo spinout because he needed a caution!?! If that isn't deliberate cheating by a driver, I don't know what is!

I don't know what my point is. I guess it's that there is soooo much frigging cheating out there in Nascar and I hate it. I hate it more than ever when it happens in my team, but overall, it just sucks for the fans. And unless a Nascar team can honestly say that they have never cheated or even "pushed the envelope" a little too far, then quit hating on Jimmie. You're all a bunch of hypocrites. I think Kyle Petty told it how it is when he said that he's taken an illegal car to the track many times. They all do it, they all know it, so stop acting all outraged that someone got caught just because your jealous that its one hell of a Nascar team who kicks your driver's ass on a weekly basis, because, really... sour grapes whining is almost as sickening as cheating. Almost. Not Quite.

On a lighter note. This is California Speedway weekend. I'll be at the track Thursday night through Sunday. I'll wave to you on tv!

So the tv works. Mr. San Diego gets what he wants again. Lucky him.

I'm at work... need to be working, but had to fix a typo here. heh Something I forgot to mention: Naascar starts this Sunday! Yea! Of course, there go my Sundays, but I enjoy watching it and rooting for Jimmie. Mr. San Diego rooted for Rusty Wallace who retired, so we'll see what happens next. I mean, you have to have a guy to root for or it just isn't that fun! We'll be at the race in Fontana in two weeks, too. I like going to the races, but honestly, I really like being able to see EVERYTHING, not be tortured by the weather and be comfy and able to hit the bathroom whenever I want - this is the bonus of watching at home.

Okay, gotta get to work.

Be Vewwy Vewwy Quiet...

Mr. San Diego is attempting to get his new plasma tv up and running and it's not exactly going as planned. Yup, this means no comments from the peanut gallery (me)! hehe Okay, to be fair, HE is the patient one who doesn't freak out all that easily although I'm sure he's pretty annoyed at the moment...but he hasn't been at it all that long yet. ME, on the other hand, I'd be kicking things and crying and stomping around yelling at him. What can I say? I'm just THAT easy to get along with. Especially, so it seems, when there's a full moon. I've been particularly pleasant the last couple of days... PARTICULARLY!

But, I did finally do some weeding in my flower garden and got around to FINALLY watering, which meant that my flowers all bloomed today! I have a lovely daffodil garden and another group of 'em will be coming up a little later so I'll have daffodils for a while. Very cool!

I did not, however, get my brakes done as planned and me and Sears are in a bit of a scrap at the moment... which started my grumpiness, come to think of it. hm.

Okay... obligatory post complete. Everyone have a HAPPY VD! xo
