Nice article, I think he just didn't want to take attention away from Larry Howard. He really was there to honor Mr. Howard. Nice touch.

But very unflattering photo, he looks like he is in his early 50s. Must have gotten sicker through last week.

He is still with me on that bass boat in the middle of the lake. I'll keep him busy, you all hurry out of town. For goodness sakes, please don't pick up Kenny Wallace, he never shuts up.

Well I hope you get your apology.. and thanks for the heads-up on the Ebay stuff..Really not sure why you are pissed but maybe it wasn't as much Tony's fault as it was poor planning or whatever..What do you think that he could do to redeem himself in your eyes besides the apology? Just wondering not trying to start a problem..only looking for a conversation not a fight.

What happened? I'll listen without passing judgement on you. I did go to ebay and yes there is a lot of Stewart merchandise for sale.

Are you guys hoping that this poster will say something bad about Tony? cause I really hope he doesn't...why does it always have to turn like this..huh?

Even if the poster gives his/her view that is only one version of the story...and didn't someone else post about her experience at the reunion and she had a great time and enjoyed meeting Tony.

There's no more Tony Stewart stuff on Ebay than normal - it's a great place to get stuff you can't find just anywhere.

She made a comment about him saying or whispering something about the fans on another thread and I was interested on what he said.

This is like trying to translate the bible. Everyone can put thier own spin. No wrong or right just thier experince or opinion which everyone has a right to have.

Not looking for bad, but I have been wondering why Tony said that he would not talk to reporters at the induction ceremony. So I was wondering which event the poster went to and what was said. I already know that there were some comments made by Tony.
