Gods of us all, I joined a social site.

By CharlieSpencer ·
It was an accident, I swear. All I wanted to do was add a comment to a news article on NASCAR.com. I didn't realize the required account was anything more than the minimal username and password we have here. Then I started poking around and found references to 'Buddy Lists', privacy settings, 'Auto Friending', approving content others add to 'my page' (whatever that is); all that nonsense I've so far successfully avoided.

I said something colorful and tried to relax a certain involuntarily clenched muscle. Now I'm desperately looking around the site for a FAQ. I used a variant of my 'Palmetto' alias and the SC flag logo I use here on that site. I don't want to do anything there to damage the already questionable online persona I've established here, even by neglect.

I'm not sure what I've gotten into or if it's worth the effort of policing it just to chip in my two cents occasionally. Sumbich.

Oh, I'm so sorry; thanks for playing NASCAR trivia anyway.

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Nope...

but #8 -WAS- Dale Jr, but not since the '07 season. Next month he starts his third year driving the #88 car. This wasn't just a number change; the #88 is a completely different team and owner from the #8. The #8 team only ran a handful of races last year before being disbanded for lack of sponsorship.

We have some lovely parting gifts for you, a copy of our home game, and the Blu-Ray of "Palmie's Greatest B!tch Slaps".

Would that be Hendricks Motor Sports? Or what? My neighbor's estranged son is their chief tech guy in NC.

No ***** slapping me. I don't watch NASCAR. I just see names scribbled and numbers on bumper stickers and back windows. :^0

Correct

by Ben "Iron" Damper In reply to Well gosh

He drives for Hendrick Motorsports in the 88 car now. He's still a no talent hack whom won't reach even a quarter of the wins nor titles that his Dad has.
Did I mention that I don't like Dale Jr??

I don't dislike him,

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Correct

but he's a mid-pack driver saddled by his lineage with expectations his level of talent will never come close to meeting. Nice guy, but if his last name was Reutimann or Sorenson nobody would give a rip when he finished 19th.

Jr.

by Ben "Iron" Damper In reply to I don't dislike him,

I just think he gets way more credit then he deserves. He comes across to me like he's some type of great driver when he's more of a Reed Sorensen in the talent department.

Are you a racing fan

by CharlieSpencer In reply to After all my Jr. bashing ...

or do you pull for Jeffy?

Haha NO

by Ben "Iron" Damper In reply to Are you a racing fan

Very funny. I was a Sr. fan.
Now and for the last three years or so I pull for a driver that's a mix of Sr. and Tony Stewart. That's right the greatest current driver KYLE BUSCH!
