Rolling Stones 'Bigger Bang'

Once again, I’ve reached a point where I have nothing to write about. So I’m trying the exercise of simply sitting down and writing because something will eventually come out.

There are a couple of things that I like to write about. A couple of things that need to be purged from my system, but they are of a personal nature and I cannot purge. And those things are making me a little batty.

As Forrest Gump would say, “That’s all I got to stay about that.”

Well, that exercise went nowhere.

I’m kind of excited about the new NASCAR season. The Shoot Out is this Sunday and it’s only 11 days until the Daytona 500.

I’m known for cheering on underdogs and I’ve added one for the 500, James Hylton. Mr. Hylton is 72 years old and he’s trying to make the 500. It will be an uphill battle for him since he’ll have to more than likely race his way into the field. Since my driver of the number 7 Jim Beam Ford Fusion Robby Gordon finished in the top 35 of last year’s point standings, he guaranteed a starting spot. I’ve got nothing to worry about there, baby!

I hope that James Hylton makes it and shows those punks a thing or two. And if he shakes his cane out the window at the youngsters as he passes them, well…. That’s just a bonus.

It should be an interesting season… Toyota joins the list of car manufacturers, an open-wheeler by the name of Juan Montoya joins the ranks, and some big changes have taken place in the points system.

That’s about all I got today and I apologize for the shortness. And only to remind and let the new readers into it… The title of each blog is the musical selection of the day. It’s what I’m listening to all day long.

    I'm listening to the sound of a broken furnace. It's similar to prog rock.

    I claim the broken furnace comment above. Sorry. A cold brain without caffeine is no way to start the day.

    I am hoping that the '07 season proves to be better than the '06 one. Man, that was brutal... as in brutally boring. I think I fell asleep on over half of the races. I don't think that's what they were going for.

    Of course, it did not help matters that my driver seemed to take the year off. Let's hope he can turn it around this season. My basketball team is already letting me down, I can be backing white, black and blue losers in two sports. That's madness!

    Even my backup drivers had lackluster showings, and they both moved to new teams, so I am not sure how that is going to work out either. I just know I can't take another year of Chad n' Jimmie winning all of the time. It will make Ma unbearable.

    For you information sir, the Shootout is Saturday night. I will be watching yet another another sporting event until its entirety, at which time I will make my way to the mighty Teeter. The last event was the mighty Carolina victory over Duke.

    NASCAR in 2007 has got to be better than NASCAR in 2006, with all the new additives. A guy by the name of Jauan Pablo Montoya! Toyota! ESPN! ABC! 2 Extra Chasers! Commercial-free race in July! The bar is being raised really high. Lets hope they show and prove.

    As for the number 7, he realizes where the true racing power lies. And it lies in the Roush-Yates engine department.

  6. Yeah... I slipped on the Shoot Out. I got it confused with qualifying, which I plan on watching too!

    Charles... You KNOW that I've always been a Ford man, so I think it's great that my dude Robby Gordon is driving a Ford now. But as for the Roush-Yates engines... Judging from the last year's performance, it remains to be seen.
