Mike Helton impression
In today's "Yeah, sorry about that Jeff" press conference held by Nascar, the logo on the backdrop behind the head honchos read: "Chase for the Sprint Cup 2012". Now, how could such a thing happen? Well, besides complacency and executive incompetence, that is.
--After letting Jeff Gordon into the Chase as the 13th driver on Friday the 13th, they were tired of looking at the number 13 (watch out, Casey Mears).
--The guy next to Mike Helton had just time-travelled from the 1920's. C'mon--give Fatty Arbuckle a break!
--The sport's higher-ups are far too busy pursuing a perjury charge against Michael Waltrip, who blatantly lied on Nascar Race Hub when he said, "I am not a dipsh*t".
--Plenty of people noticed it, but they were worried about what would happen if they made Mike Helton even sadder than he already looked.
