Yeah I guess it would but I still don't like long hair. Semi-long.....not bad, but long is not good to me. To each his own though. LOL I honestly don't think someone like Fabio would be good looking without all his hair though.
Yeah, he has made a lot of money with that lion's mane. I don't usually go for blondes, though. However, I do make exceptions. Like with Matt Kenseth. He is the total opposite of what I am usually attracted to. Michael Waltrip could stop traffic, in my oppinion. He could cause a wreck just walking across the street if those three ladies in the Kasey Kahne Allstate commercials saw him. Matt looks like a college boy. And yet, he is my number 1. You wait, by the end of this year I will probably be telling you I am in love with Reutimann and can't stand Matt!

Hey now, I never picked my driver because of his hair. In fact, when I first started watching NASCAR, Michael annoyed me a bit. Then I saw how he handled the situation when Junior wrecked him at Charlotte back in 2005. Michael had every right to cuss and fuss and yell at Junior, but he didn't. He went on camera and said that Junior was behind him, suddenly he was spinning, and he didn't know why that happened. You could tell by the look on Michael's face that he was LIVID, but he was cool and collected. His wife, Buffy, was standing behind him arms crossed and looking off in the other direction like she was trying to control her anger too. Can't blame them.
That got me paying more attention to Michael but what got me as a fan was on INC like a couple of days later, or a week later, can't remember which. Anyway, Schrader was saying something. He gets this weird look on his face and suddenly goes "What is he DOING?" The camera pans over to Michael and there he is, sitting there with his shoe off, checking it out. He goes "You know, Buffy got me these shoes last week and they are COMFORTABLE". I about died laughing. I know it was stupid, but you had to have seen it. It was hilarious. THAT is what made me become a Mikey fan.

PS- his looks are just a bonus. Sorry, but I like the older men... considering I am not a spring chicken myself. Guys like Junior, Jimmie Johnson, Kurt or Shrub, Jamie McMurray, or any of them "young guns" do NOTHING for me. They are too young.

Oh, Jamie. There is an awful lot going on there. Actually, he has so many faults that they make him more appealing. His nose is too big, his eyes are too small, and here we go again with the hair (sorry, Terry), but that is what my hair looks like when I get up in the morning. He has an overbite that makes him kind of sexy. But, yep, Renee, too young. If I were 21 again, I think I would go for Denny Hamlin. His butt is getting big, though, don't you think? You know who has a big butt? David Stremme, no fooling. Oh, man, sorry people, how did I get on this subject?????

Ok you caught me I am more of a middle aged Fonz, but dont tell my wife like I said I think I have her fooled.But you guy's still no points for the Big Boy thing? Close your eyes and picture it, I got it nailed.OK OK I am out of here.

TOYOTA HAS TAKEN THE BRASS RING. THE TITLE OF NUMBER ONE AUTO MAKER DOESN'T RESIDE IN AMERICA ANY LONGER. LOTS OF FOLKS OUT THERE ARE STILL ARGUING TOYOTA SHOULD NOT BE IN NASCAR, WHEN YOU ARE NO. 1 YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO RACE ANYWHERE YOU WANT. WITH THAT SAID I STILL THINK TOYOTA WENT WITH THE WRONG PEOPLE TO SUCCESSFULLY GET INTO NASCAR ANYTIME SOON. FOR THEIR OPENING SHOWING TO BE THIS POOR, SOMEONE DIDN'T DO THEIR HOMEWORK. WHEN THEY HIT THE TRACK THEY SHOULD HAVE HAD THE HOTTEST MOTOR OUT THERE.
