The Uppity Bastard

Smug Life

Ryan Newman is a Liar, or Just Stupid

Ryan Newman allegedly participates in NASCAR, you know that “sport” where really expensive cars drive around in a circle and a hundred thousand rednecks wait for a crash and drink Budweiser. Well I have been told that the Daytona 500 is a big deal for these people and Newman won it this year.


So good for him, his expensive car was faster and avoided big crashes better than every one else’s. Hooray. Well, Newman thinks that race car drivers are athletes and just for the sake of argument I will give him the benefit of the doubt. But he crossed the line implying that poker players are athletes. When asked about that topic Newman said, “Are poker players athletes? Yeah, they are, because its a sport.” He continued and stated that poker takes “athleticism.” I couldn’t agree more, anything you can do while drinking whiskey, smoking cigarettes and high on cocaine must be an athletic achievement. When I think of athleticism I know I think of this guy.


Just one more reason why I hate NASCAR.

  3. I must say, what a fine blog you have here, even tho I do debate the use of the word “Uppity” along with bastard as it really belongs to the opposite sex…one in particular. as it does belong to me in a much more descriptive way.

    Poker showcases some of the finest athletes in the world. I am sure it will be an Olympic event soon.

    I also disagree that watching NASCAR is an excuse to drink Bud and talk funny.

    Correction: It is an excuse for Uppity Fine and Cultured Ladies to write with a funny accent and drink Coors Lite.

  4. This blog is just another illustration of why Liberals are really fascist and racist. They believe in stereotyping everything, like blacks can’t get good jobs without the help of the government, NASCAR is a ” “sport” where really expensive cars drive around in a circle and a hundred thousand rednecks wait for a crash and drink Budweiser,”etc. And hypocritical liars at that, as, if you follow the link and even search “Ryan Newman” on the site, you will not find any such quote.
    How do altruistic, caring, and government loving liberals help the homeless? Look at Denver’s plan for during the Democratic Convention…they give them bus tickets and tell them to go away.
