And The Winner Is....

The "Roo" Marcos Ambros maintained his composure and integrity after Robo-Gordon purposely spun him in the final laps of yesterdays French Open in Montreal. Of course Marcos had done the same to Gordon just prior, and a caution was thrown at that point because of chaos behind them... but was it thrown before or after Ambrose nailed Gordon? The topper is Robby is now contending with NASCAR. He was told to drop back behind the #33 car before the Green flag but he refused, then shortly after the re-start he spun Ambrose who had the lead and Robby is now telling NASCAR he won the race!! Of course we know the win went to Happy Harvick. I have a soft spot for Gordon because he tries so hard on a shoestring, and I do think he has a legitimate gripe and he certainly has some brass you know what's!! A battle with NASCAR is silly... right or wrong... they are always right.

Fellow Blogater Vroom reminded me that winter is creeping up on us here in the North. The recent heat that most of the eastern half of the Country has suffered has been bittersweet. The bad part is obvious... the good is the lack of clothing we need to wear and it's a good excuse to go in the water. My Golden Retriever is now 13 weeks and because of the heat wave she has been afforded the opportunity to learn to swim and she has become an expert.

I have been reading about this incident in the Busch Race. I wish I could have been watching in order to see in all unfold.

I too like Gordon.....ROBBY GORDON! I tend to go for some of the "underdogs".

The heat here has been awful. We are actually getting a little rain this morning. Not near enough. All the lawns are yellow instead of green. Crops are really starting to hurt.

Can't believe I am wishing for more rain on a NASCAR Sunday! But I think Pocono is safe this time around.

I missed Robby's implosion too. Must have been a good one. It's a shame that these tantrum's shadow his talent. The rain is coming your way. It's been steady here all morning with no signs of letting up. It did cool it down though.

Robby basically flipped the bird to Nascar and we all know how that will turn out..great talent short on deep thought...the weather finally cooled a bt here the humidity is gone and the breeze is cool but no rain......
