I really do like Jeff Gordon, except this past weekend when he intentionally rammed Matt Kenseth, preventing him from winning the race this past week in Martinsville.
From Espn: Jeff Gordon went into a brief profanity-laced meltdown over his in-car radio as Denny Hamlin took the checkered flag on Monday at Martinsville Speedway.
He was mad that the final caution came when he was about a hundred yards from taking the white flag and winning in regulation. He was mad that Matt Kenseth slammed into the rear of his No. 24 car on the first lap of the green-white-checkered finish to end any chance he had of winning at all.
He was mad that NASCAR even called the final caution that forced overtime...But the four-time champion may have been madder at NASCAR than anything. Since he couldn't slam the governing body into the wall like he slammed Kenseth to make sure he didn't win, he took a pointed shot at officials in his postrace press conference.
"It was pretty obvious to me NASCAR wanted to do a green-white-checkered finish," Gordon said. "There were cars blowing tires, hitting the wall ... they weren't throwing the caution.
"One spinout and they threw the caution in the blink of an eye. I think it was pretty obvious what they wanted."
NASCAR responds: "The caution was displayed because the No. 18 car got into the wall and was coming back down into the racing groove," Tharp wrote in an e-mail Tuesday. "Period."
Obviously, Gordon was pissed when the yellow was thrown, but he intentionally wrecked Keneseth on the final lap because Gordon was pissed because he knew he was about to lose the race, so he wrecked the #17 car. He was so concentrated that he wrecked the 17 car and wasn't paying attention to anything else and ended up losing, coming in 3rd.
So, Mr. Gordon, as much as my son loves you, you really sucked this past weekend.
Sigmund Freud on the meaning of the umbrella.
