    1. and I thought it was just me that hates to here Joe Buck anywhere .. thanks Connie. I was sure Dustin J had it.. .then the wheels came off today… bummer… On the good side, got to see ” Little Gator ” (Justin Allgaier kick butt today in Iowa… Started in P-11, went to the front in 5 laps, held the lead rest of the day, including winning Seg 1 & 2….. So at least i got some relief from that….. Still say Little Gator is the best JRM has, but suspect he is trying to get a Cup ride now for the future….

        1. He did ,, yup.. Lost it and Junior offered him a ride at JRM… Justin was in Cup when we use to see all those commercials about “Little Gator”… I like his aggressive style an see a lot of Dale Senior there… If Justin does not go to the front its only cause his ride wont go there an u can look for him to wreck it trying to make it go… To me that’s serious commitment to taking the checker…. Also, Justin is dedicated family man, his wife is not a trophy wife by any stretch, yet they are most always together after each race… In my view, Justine is 10x better than Sadler all day long…. Justin is not afraid to race,, not so with Sadler imo.. If Justin don’t win the xFinity Championship this year Ill be surprised…..

  2. Drag racing legend Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen died yesterday.

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/motor/nhra/2018/06/11/tom-mcewen-mongoose-drag-racing-driver-dies/692592002/

    I had the please to have met and talked with Tom McEwen a couple of times back in my drag racing days back in the 1980’s when he came here to our local drag strip as an exhibition along with his funny car rival Don “The Snake” Prudhomme.

    Tom was really a nice man and so was Don Prudhomme.

    I got to hang around them (mostly Tom) for over an hour and they were not stuck up people at all.

    1. I had the pleasure to meet Tom McEwen, not please! Danged auto correct!
      And he actually remembered me a year later when I saw him race at the US Nationals in Indy and I went to his hauler area.

    1. I’ve always liked Charles Durning.
      I never knew that he was a WW2 vet?
      He said pretty much the same thing as an uncle and a neighbor of mine about what they went through when they landed at Normandy. They wouldn’t get quite as detailed as Durning and they didn’t like being asked to tell the story and they avoided talking about it as much as possible.

  5. What a sad pathetic country that we live in when they cancel the swimsuit competition in the Miss America pageant?

    That is as down right un-American as it gets!

    To hell with the all of PC police and SJW crybabies!

      1. Yeah and it was always called a “beauty contest”? Go figure?

        Because now it hurts the weetle feewings and self esteem of the not so beautiful people and puts a stigma on those who are physically attractive and smart.

        I’ve read also they will now allow all women into the competition regardless of their physical appearance?

        So now as with the other failed PC BS being taught to our kids, “everyone gets a trophy!” now for just showing up. We’ve gotta stop that evil thing called competition! It hurts to lose and it’s so mean to recognize and award achievement of any kind because it’s excluding others who are not as fortunate!

        WHAAAAH! WHAAAAH! WHAAAAH!

          1. Sounds to me like that all of these “competitions” are being advised by the very same idiot PR consultants that King Brian has hired?

              1. This guy is in charge of GM’s development?!
                Maybe this is why Chevy isn’t running so well in NA$CAR this year?
                LOL

  7. Anyone see the Dale and Amy’s Renovation Show tonight… project from the Keys….. Not for nothing, but seems to me Amy is a reflection of Teresa years ago…. Was not surprised to watch Junior’s indulgence and have to think this is a lost financially…. given how much Junior messed
    up driving the Excavator, ripping out the water main. Amy crawls under the house to put jacks underneath while Junior watches and coaches ??? .. Not smart Junior…..just saying, women are like elephants, they never forget…..

    1. Suspect given your experience with reality…. all the gloss over of things not shown would speak to how much was not told. I was surprised at 30 minute show the entire build …. Lots not shown, plus seeing Amy
      go under the house alone on day one to put Jacks under foundation to start the leveling process was a real hoot, Junior outside coaching from the side ……. WIMP… scared of spiders i’m guessing

    1. Yeah, but they won’t take away his win?

      We just knew that the little jackwagon was cheating, even when he goes pissing in the kiddie pool. Real big man? Makes him feel all important?

  9. I just read on Junior’s twitter that John Andretti has cancer and it has returned and spread.

    I am SO DAMNED PISSED OFF of cancer in this world!

    If you all remember, John Andretti used to drive for DEI as well as be an Indycar racer.

    1. Not trying to be the wet blanket here, but I know that river otters are so cute and all on TV, but I have watched them literally destroying dozens of large trophy bass at one of my favorite fishing lakes. They don’t even eat all of the fish they kill. They just take a few bites out of them then go back under the water and kill another, and another, and another, and another…. I wish that they had never released them into the lakes here in my state. They are more like rats and I have to resist the urge to beat them to death with an oar!

        1. Thank you sweetie…

          As i grow older I find it amazing how people who have never met face-2-face can create real friendships……. But have to say and I really do believe this …. We can love someone and yet we don’t like them … That was a hard lesson for me to learn… a country boy that didn’t wear shoes in the summer time accept for Sundays….. Go figure ???

          Speaking of the real friendships I’ve gained here, one has to consider this site is doomed….. It’s not fair that RobBob incur’s the cost of maintaining this site and unfortunately, I’m not in a position to help fray that cost … It will be a sad day for me when these lights go out …

    1. In honor of National Biscuit Day or National Beer Day…… (when ever that is).

      “Sometimes, when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed
      Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I did not drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, it is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true, than be selfish and worry about my liver.”
      ” Babe Ruth ”

      “When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.”
      Paul Horning

      “24 hours in a day and 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not”.
      H. L. Mencken

      “When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep.
      When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
      So, let’s all get drunk and go to heaven”.
      George Bernard Shaw, Irishman

      “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy”.
      Benjamin Franklin

      “Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer.
      Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention,
      but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza”.
      Dave Barry

  10. Homelife
    An attorney arrived home late, after a very tough day trying to get a stay of execution for a client who was due to be hanged for murder at midnight. His last minute plea for clemency to the governor had failed and he was feeling worn out and depressed. As soon as he walked through the door at home, his wife started on him about, β€œWhat time of night to be getting home is this? Where have you been? ‘Dinner is cold and I’m not reheating it.” And on and on and on. Too shattered to play his usual role in this familiar ritual, he went and poured himself a shot of single malt scotch and headed off for a long hot soak in the bathtub, pursued by the predictable sarcastic remarks as he dragged himself up the stairs. While he was in the bath, the phone rang. The wife answered and was told that her husband’s client, James Wright, had been granted a stay of execution after all. Wright would not be hanged tonight. Finally realizing what a terrible day he must have had, she decided to go upstairs and give him the good news. As she opened the bathroom door, she was greeted by the sight of her husband, bent over naked, drying his legs and feet. β€œThey’re not hanging Wright tonight,” she said. To which he whirled around and screamed, β€œFOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WOMAN, DON’T YOU EVER STOP?”
