JJ's too boring to win the championship

Full story: Farmington Daily Times

It's not that I don't want Jimmie Johnson to win the championship. Jimmie and my Sweet Baboo seem to have buried the bullet after JJ took out Elliott Sadler, who would love me if he knew me, in a race a coupla ...

Enogh of the JJ bashing. This is tiring. Too corporate, too cool. Too corporate, not a problem - refined behavior reflects well on the sponsor you represent. Too cool, no its called having an even temper. I'm glad he's not some trash talking brat. Or a temper driven psychopath.

Ward Burton, one of my favorite drivers, epitomized a gentlman of the sport - for having alot in common with JJ. Soft spoken, a family man, an evironmentalist on top of all that.

So you cant have it both ways. Lighten up on JJ because thfuture of the sport is more with him than with Vile Kyle or Tony the Tiger.

tell ya what, i am NO JJ fan by any means, but there was an article on nascar.com that gave me a little more respect for the guy. talking about the meager means he came from and he seems to be very intelligent. He knows how to work the sponsors and get the most marketing he can. but there is still SOMETHING i dont like about him, can't quite put my finger on it yet though.

Take Chad away and it will be like Jeff without Ray and (I hate to say this, it breaks my heart) Tony without Zippy...They are awesome drivers, but they are nothing without an awesome crew chief.

Hate to stir the pot (no attacks please) but what is up with Chad and JJ with the hair? Did they go to the hair club or something?

P.S.- I like them both. If JJ couldn't have made it as a driver he was going to be a fireman. Admirable since my relatives have a combined 85 years as firemen.

Hair club for men.. I was thinking the same thing as I saw Casey Mears walking across the intro's at Texas. Chad definitley did something.

I read somewhere that Chad had 'plug' implants then he combs the back up & over. What's up with Jimmie's eyebrows. I think his wife dyes them for him & he needs to have them trimmed. too nasty looking. his ears are probably full of hairs. YUK

Jimmie does have a set of brow doesn't he. I am sure with all his money that he has whatever professionally done.

It's rather Bert (of the Bert & Ernie duo) at times! Hee-hee, I just thought of Jimmie and Chad in striped sweaters!

It is some kind of pill that regrows hair starts with an L, I can't remember the exact name, but it was mentioned in an article somewhere.

Let's face it. Nascar as a whole is boring. Too many cautions for silly stuff, drive like Miss Daisy most of the race, can't race back to the line, can't say anything bad about Nascar without being fined. Once you make legitimate improvements on your car, Bill France says "that's not fair to everyone else!" No wonder they cheat. He's ruined the sport.

Okay, I'm not going to be able to get that image out of my head for the rest of the day. And now I've got that stupid "Ch-Ch-Chia" jingle from the old commercials stuck in my head too.

It's not just Jimmy, I agree with Vroom.
The sport has gone south - Earnhardt Sr., before he died, even stated "this isn't racing." The point system is overblown, it's not exciting like it should be. The "lucky dog" is a cop out, the guys don't even earn their position by racing. Drivers(in the chase) whine when someone is racing them hard saying "they should back off" because they aren't racing for the championship. Heck, it's called racing. Everybody deserves a chance to win.

Amen to that! Now with the car manufacturer's whining they need bailed out, what will happen to this once called "sport"?

I think racing is primarily about winning. If somebody has a big personality and finish outside the top 10 every time, well, nice to fill out the field with more cars and its entertaining to see an interview but a class clown is still just a class clown.

Johnson is like, head of his class, well spoken, highly respected, and he's setting the standard by which many other drivers will be rated against. He's the teacher's text book which has all the answers and everyone wants their tests and answer sheets to match.

Hell, we know Chad and Jimmie and the whole #48 team is elite. Boring though? His recent comments during interviews have been quite pleasantly humorous. I heard him say in one that he might come out of his shell a bit. There's personality there but it wont show much while he's got his game face on.
