Shrub article...thoughts???

Recommended Posts

Couldn't agree with it more if I wrote it myself, except for one thing. He's good, but I'm not sure its a foregone conclusion he'll win a Cup championship. There are lots of guys who are good enough to win one (and he's probably in that group), but to say its a sure thing for anyone is nuts. There are just far too many variables over time.

Even though I compared him with Dale Sr. last week. Dale was much more sly with his arrogance. And yes very much more adult.I defended his driving style last week, and I still do!

But can't defend his middle finger and junior high attitude.

Nascar on the other hand must LOVE IT! This has got to be good for ratings.

Too much whining and overexamining comments in NASCAR. The whole sport is overly sensitive to a fault.

Gary Sheffield says way worse things than Busch and people forget about everything the next week.

The Nascar crowd as a whole needs to toughen up a little bit.

Does it really matter what Rowdy says in interviews and to the press??

I think I like Rowdy now.

Harvey, I'll just attribute that comment to the fact that you posted it at 1:30 am, and you were overly tired and not thinking clearly. We know you really didn't mean it. Hehe. gringringrin

If you look at the ratio of baseball players to Cup drivers, there are more fans per driver than baseball player. The stupid comments made by baseball players can also be attributed to whatever substance they claim they are not on.grin

You betcha HOF#13. One cannot pull the wool over your eyes. Catfishing last night and I must have sniffed to much stink bait and lost my head.

I think this was a great article. I don't see anyone throwing punches over what Kyle does. However a time will come when Kyle messes with the wrong driver and he will get punted in to the wall. I think Kyle is a talented driver. It is hard for me to say that for the simple fact is I can't stand the kid. I think his success at a young age has went right to his head. I think his speak before he thinks attitude will get him into enought trouble on the track. I think he is going to get his on the track. Heck maybe Jr paid his driver to wreck him for the Richmond thing. To many people paying to close attention for Jr to do it so why not get him with his nationwide car? Kyle should take his lucky stars that Jr is not like his father. I don't think Dale Sr would have tolerated the Richmond race at all and pay back would come reguardless of the rules and fines. Kyle, enjoy your success as with all streaks they do end. You better hope it is not during the chase! Your day will come!

I highly doubt you will see any so called "payback". Jr knows the difference between intentional and un-intentional, unlike some on this board

You may be right. Jr is such a cleaner racer and also not near the loudmouth that other fool is.

What I see is a very young, extremely talented driver who has yet to learn the word "patience." No doubt this kid can drive the wheels off the car and do it well, but he puts his car/himself in positions that are extremely risky, and in many instances, ends up causing a wreck of some kind.

He definitely does not know while speaking that enough is enough...that is inexperience and immaturity. Not unlike a Kevin Harvick a few years ago, or Kurt Busch for that matter with his friend Jimmy Spencer.

That article, I thought, was about as "spot on" as it could get...

This kid will win a championship someday...he's got more talent on the track than most of the drivers out there right now. He just doesn't have the patience to allow things to come to him, and that is what makes him not championship material yet...

Give him a few years and he'll be on top... Hopefully his mouth will settle down...

Big E and Gordan both slowed down for a while once they had the fear of God put in them. (injured in a bad wreck) His time is coming.

    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
