Billy Bad Butt

13 posts in this topic

Tony cracks me up. I know he can be a bit of a whiner, but I would have to agree with him on this one. There is no reason to race like its the last 30 laps at the start of the race. A driver may want to reconsider his strategy when has to rely on bouncing his car off the wall to stay up front.

A crew member has no place getting involved in conversations that go on between drivers.

Tony was right to get upset about what happened. It diddn't get heated until "Billy Big Butt" got into the mix.

Your right a win is a win, but he also got lucky. Really had nothing to do with his driving. His crew chief took a huge gamble and it paid off. Congrats to him and his team on the win.

The move to stay on the tack right before the rain gave him the win. If they would have started the race again, he would have been in the trunk as he would have needed to pit.

Very lucky guy to get a win like that. Thats was more than likely his only hope and I'm sure thats why they made that huge gamble.

I agree there. It didn't seem the conversation got heated until BBB got involved.

I agree it was a gamble and a lucky win. But I will say the less cars he raced hard would have hurt his chance to be in that postion. That team is doing better this year. I wonder when his boss MW is going to hang it up?

I hope this comes out the way I want it to.

People have been asking for a driver in Nascar to stand up and make the masses awary of his presents. Now we have a drive who I thought all along would be the one after Sr's death to do it.

He has more at stake now being a car owner /driver and has to watch his P&Q's but I think you will continue to see him being "that guy". He seems to have the respect of the other drivers and knows he can win. There are alot of times when he does things that remind me of a little brat and it drives me nuts.

I think smoke is the driver that will be standing up and being the guy more and more people respect and listen to.

He does need to pull his head out and look around ever once in a while and things will be better for him.

I think you may be right Sifty. He's not afraid to speak his mind, which is good and bad at times. However, I do think he is a very respected as a driver and now as an owner. He will say what he thinks needs to be said regarding his car, his team, and NASCAR, which can most likely only help the sport.

Tony was acting like a baby. What is Rueitmann supposed to do? Look in the mirror and say, "Uh oh, there is Tony Stewart! I better be moving out of his way now because he is Tony Stewart." Everyone is out there to race. If you are two laps down holding up the leaders, then I say go ahead and get on someone's case, Tony. When lead lap cars are racing, why should they let anyone go by freely? Especially in a race that could possibly(and eventually did end up) be decided by the weather and every position counts.

    •   Though I sometimes post in the shadow of the valley of Sillytown, I fear no evil.    I did take the Libertarian quiz though at the gun show last weekend; wondering if it would help me communicate in here.  On the chart I landed borderline Liberal/Libertarian/center.   I still don't know what to think of that. 
    • Decided to blow my lineup up at the last minute.   Combs Powroznik Defoe Kennedy Jones Jr.   I am gonna kick myself if the guys I took out do well. I just can't bet against Defoe, the hottest stick going lately.

    • Isn't it all illegal? Our gov used the 4th for toilet paper but I guess had Bush been in charge you might have something to be mad about. Now Obama always gets the free pass because that's your party right? There is no trusting any of these people and worse yet we don't get to the truth until it's far too late, usually decades later. We have two sides spewing half truths full of lies, impossible to figure it all out, worse if you trust one or the other. What I do know is supposedly wikileaks had both DNC and GOP emails, now if you think the right wingers control them whatever but I put more faith in them based on simple history and actions. What actions of the DNC or the GOP or CNN or FOX whatever news source you find worthy do you find credible in this day and age?

       
    • It's a garage listed as a loft build.  2x6 floor beneath the trusses to it will take a good amount of weight and I'm not putting much for weight up there more so just a bunch of bigger boxes spread out.  I will be good as far as weight goes.  Budget would like to be a couple hundred but would go to 5ish if I throw in stairs.  And the fire pole may be the best idea yet! 
    • Before you fill it up, do you know how much additional load the trusses can take and how much weight you plan on adding? Also, what is your budget?

    • So who should I blame then the Independents, Green Party, Libertarians, any other party not worthy of your vote? Oh wait, I should probably blame the Russians or the Alt Right or the Progressive? This is the problem, you still believe in the "system" that has failed us again and again. You can't fix this mess with these parties, or with people who think like them. All you guys do is fight each other over the same ridiculous arguments without end, then the media fans the flames and you double down on your party like they have all the answers. How exactly does a person who doesn't believe in any of it sway the masses who are programed to pick a side for life and stick with it no matter what happens? Sorry but I am no programmed that way and never will be.

      Honestly all we need is some common sense, something 8 out of 10 people will easily agree with when given a choice but we rarely get to choose such things. This stuff isn't rocket science, it is very easy to see the corruption. Go dig back in the Trump thread, I said several times lets get the money out of politics and we fix a lot of a problems all at once. That is something most people with common sense can agree to but you get people defending the status quo. I even got called out several times to put some ideas up, as usual I posted up some ideas that most are scared to put in writing and not one person responded because they are too busy attacking/defending one party or the other. We are a divided country and until we meet in the middle and figure out some very simple problems we will be stuck in this mess. There is no conservative or progressive utopia that will save us, until the right/left extremist settle down and meet in the middle with what I hope is a large but not vocal majority we will go around and around again. It isn't up to the politicians, it is up to us to force the changes we want, they will follow us, trust me they will bow down to us if we just find some middle ground. We already have all the power, we just have to agree to use it in a way that helps everyone, not the guys writing the big checks.
    •   Dry rub is a little too salty for me. I mostly smoke pike, walleye and jumbo perch.
    • Canadian fly in bear hunt?   Catching walleye all day and bear hunting in the evening is pretty spectacular, and it won't hurt the wallet too bad.
    • They had to do this. It was one of those mandates the Evil One.......the former President, insisted on, initiated and produced. Thus, they had no option but to throw it out....the Evil One had done it.
