so where has shepshepard been? making gems like this
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.
