I’m sure you wonder where “I H8 24” came from. Mit actually gave me this title last year in one of her blogs. Anybody who is a NASCAR fan could probably guess who I hate!!! Jeff Gordon.
When Mr. Fish and I first got interested in the sport several years ago,I’ll admit that I did not like this driver. I’m still not fond of him, but being that I have very close friends that like him, there’s little that I can do about it. I am, however a fan of Mark Martin. Being that he is a fellow Arkansan, my allegiance goes to him.
Now, how do you remain friends with the people who have gone to the track with you, ridden in the same vehicle as you, eaten meals with you and after going home will continue to talk about the race? I hate to be the party pooper and ruin friendships, but allegiance is thicker than friendship!!
This year puts me in a “pickle”, though. Mark will be a teammate of Jeff Gordon.
I cannot keep my mouth shut though and voice my opinion at the drop of a hat, and proclaim it on the back of my vehicle!! That is just my Southern upbringing, I guess. Any true Southerner knows supporting Jeff Gordon is just like making chicken salad with Miracle Whip instead of Hellman’s Real Mayonnaise, there’s just no substitution.
As always, I remain………………….
