Talking Hey Redskins & NASCAR fans...

this is a copy/paste from a blurb I found on a site...too friggin funny. Go Get em Coach!!

You Never Know When…
...You might be surrounded by Redskins.

It's a famous line from Tom Landry's American Express Card commercial years ago. It's sage advice that two Cowboys — Troy Aikman and Roger Staubach – should have heeded.

The two Dallas legends have founded a NASCAR racing team, Hall of Fame Racing. Both guys struggled in their early days in the NFL. So it's fitting that Hall of Fame Racing was fined and stripped of points for using an illegal carburetor in its initial race at Daytona.

The funny thing is who supplied the illegal part – Joe Gibbs. Was the current Redskins coach, who was driven out of the league, playing a rookie prank on the Cowboys duo? Gibbs sent out a press release claiming it was an accident. But it's not hard to imagine Gibbs having a laugh about this at Redskins Park saying, "Those two dumb sons of *****es. The only thing dumber than a Raider is a Cowboy." And then Dan Snyder lights a $100 bill on fire just to celebrate.


I hated going to weddings. All the grandmas would poke me saying "You're next". They stopped that when I started doing it to them at funerals.

Joe Gibbs supplied the illegal carb? That's interesting!

As for HOF Racing, they got a good driver, but how long will they last? Pulling stunts like that, not long.

Ya wonder if JGR did give the carb as a joke, and somehow NASCAR and/or HOF Racing missed it. You'd think the mechanical crew would know specs for the parts!
