You Need A Binky You Big Baby?
Topics: Kyle Busch
I've let this stew for a couple of days, because really, it's nothing out of the ordinary. As much as I hate the little bastard, no one can take away Kyle Busch's success this season in all three of NASCAR's top divisions. We grit our teeth, invent new four letter words, and have the unyielding desire to throw shit at our televsions everytime he wins...well, at least I do. Why is that? I have some summations that I'm going to share with you, so if you're easily offended, soft-hearted, or just looking for a general reason to bitch about something (like I'm about to do), then you need to go play with your teddy bears, babydolls, or something else of the foo-foo nature.
It wasn't that long ago, when the Angry Keebler Elf's older brother Kurt exhibited the same manneurisms that his younger brother does today. He started off with a slight touch of humility and humbleness early in his career. However, graciousness was soon lost with the development of wealth and arrogance. It was only after a brush with the law, a brief stint on the unemployment line, and some community service, later, that Kurt's attitude did a 180. However, with Kyle, there has been no humble projections or graciousness in his ways, but a sense of instant arrogance and self sense of entitlement. He feels that he is owed all that has come his way when many drivers earn their keep with every race. Kyle's fortunate to have been able to go from one powerhouse team (Hendrick) to another (Gibb). He seems to have lost sight of that. He has quickly forgotten the success he has enjoyed this season to the point where he has not only become the poorest loser, but the poorest winner as well.
Hitting bottom in this race for the chase is completley understandable. What driver wouldn't feel the same way to have come out the first three races and demonstrated performance as he has and not feel angry? However, his rude sarcasm towards reporters, his demeanor as he stands with that shitty smirk during interviews, and his radio traffic between he and his crew are enough to drive any fan away in disbelief, matter HOW many victories he has. Kyle's teams (noticed I pluralized) have worked their asses off to ensure he had the best stuff at all times. EVERY driver stumbles and falls now and then, but to act like a big titty-baby out of milk when you do portrays a terrible example for your fans, your sponsors, and of course, the sport in general. What will instill a sense of humility in this snot-nose punk?
I'm going to go out on a limb here, folks, as much as a surprise as it may seem (insert giggle now), but I'm going to say a good ol' fashion behind the wood shed ass kickin' might be the trick. Not on the track, off of it. Mano-y-mano between he and the next driver he decides to freight train on the asphalt. Nothing would make me happier than to see him get a good beat down by one of the older drivers. Kyle could go away running with is thumb in his mouth kicking and screaming like a toddler throwing a temper tantrum in Wal Mart who didn't get his candy. Our only hope is that he'd hold his breath until he passed out cold. There is a huge difference between confidence and a sense of arrogance and this elf needs to be schooled hard in that category.
