2Fast 2Furious

Tony Stewart, you're my hero! I am the ultimate/all-time favorite/#1 stunner Nascar fan. Our weekends are planned around races. But before I get ahead of myself, let's stop the car and switch into reverse for a minute here, so my passion can be fully understood. It all started 2 1/2 fateful years ago. I was innocently waiting for my beloved to pick me up. I turned on the TV, flipped thru all the infomercials, and settled on a car race. I watched for a good 20 minutes, and decided I really liked the look and feel of the Home Depot car. Always one for a friendly wager, I decided to pick a winner for the race, and of course settled on Tony Stewart and the Home Depot car. My beloved picked me up, and I left not knowing the outcome of my wager with myself. We returned home to find there were 10 laps left in the race (there are up to 500 laps), and Tony was cruising along in first place! Needless to say, he won the race, and it has been true love ever since. I'm hooked/addicted/need my fix of Nascar every Sunday. Tony is far and away my favorite. He never fails to amaze with his skillful/svelte/sweet driving.

It's just that I get such a thrill from the excitement of it all---cars, pits, speed, logos on cars, the cool jumpsuits they get to wear. Oh, the jumpsuits! That is for sure my second favorite part of Nascar. My ideal dream ultimate fantasy job would be a broadcaster...for the Nascar circuit. Not only do those people get to follow Nascar around the country, they also get to wear the cool jumpsuits, headphones, and use the old school orange foam top microphones. Does it get any better than that? I dare say no.

I don't think the jumpsuits come small enough.
