Nascar Driver Caught Going 83mph Over Speed Limit
This has been a fascinating week of sports and a co-worker today who I didn't even knew read my blogs asked me how I come up with the ideas. First of all everything I write about is actual news I mean it really happened it's not like I'm writing fiction. That being said, I go to the Aria sportsbook and I watch and observe the various sporting events, the human interaction, the couple celebrating a win, and of course the people betting the mortgages looking like they're on death row after the game...did I mention I don't bet?
Last week I wrote a blog about Charles Oakley's troubles with the Aria Resort and don't think that I haven't been trying to find out more info from the employees who I know, but it's no surprise they're kept in the dark, some of them didn't even know it happened...allegedly. It's easy to talk NBA with the Dallas Mavericks starters Larry Bird and Bill Russell errrrr I mean, Dirk is playing out of his mind isn't he? And when Miami decides to play defense they're unstoppable especially since the return of Udonis Haslem. Looks like a repeat of the 2006 NBA Finals.
Or I could go NHL with a Canadian team actually playing for the Stanley Cup which always turns heads because of the chance to bring the cup back to Canada. I have many Canadian friends because I went to college right at the border, shout out to Niagara University, yeah apparently this is important to them. Vancouver is awaiting the Tampa Bay vs Boston winner, of course I want Tampa to win just for the 3300 mile trips these guys will have to log to play each other, gotta be some kind of distance record.
Then of course there's Nascar drive Kyle Busch going Fast and Furious in a residential area. According to deputies in North Carolina, Busch was clocked going 128 miles per hour in a 45mph zone. "I was test driving a new sports car and I got carried away. I went beyond the speed I should have been going on a public road. I apologize to the public, my fans, sponsors, and race teams for my lack of judgement. I take responsibility for my actions, and I can assure you that something like this will never happen again", Busch said.
Dude was going 128! In a 45mph zone no less, I mean this is incredible. Tyreke Evans thinks he was going too fast. Good thing he didn't go through any school zones, can you imagine? There is a chance he could lose his drivers license. I want to hear his excuse to the judge, that's what I'm waiting for. I can hear the judge's first question...are you insane? One thing about Nascar fans, they will defend their guy, as soon as I post any blog about Nascar on CBSsports.com I start to receive hate mail errrr I mean comments and I say bring it because you can't defend this.
Before I get your "at least he's owning it" comments to that I say no he isn't. He's taking responsibility because he got caught but owning it and being responsible would be to drive like you and I drive everyday, legally. I love when he says I was test driving and I got carried away. What were you test driving at those speeds a Gulfstream private jet? I don't know what's more ridiculous, the fact that a Nascar driver can potentially lose his license or the fact that to drive in Nascar no drivers license is necessary. Oh and I saw Chris Rock, you know how weird that is to see a celebrity just walk by? He looked lost lol I don't see celebrities everyday so when I do see one I'm going to name drop, CR's the best.
