DON’T Squeeze the Charmin!

Perhaps it’s just me... But I smell somme-thun’ STINKY!!! And it’s called the 2009 Indy Car calendar... Which has been be-labored the past few months as the second coming of Open Wheel Racing as they’d be given a “Clean sheet ‘O paper” (and two ply NO less!) towards reshaping the face of Indy Car racing in the great Norte Americano’s.

And last time I checked, the clean sheet of paper moniker refers to starting over from scratch and SIGNIFICANTLY improving whatever less then stellar design you’ve been dealing with in the past... But TE And Company certainly did NOT use their blank slates very well, as we’ve been given almost a carbon copy of the 2008 calendar with the exception of Nashville being replaced by Toronto...

And I’m so PISSED OFF right now ‘bout Portland getting the SHAFT! That I’m NOT sure if I wanna continue following ‘lil Napoleon’s circus... Although I suppose the Princess Danicker vs. Milka-Licious Poodle-fest is worth the price ‘O admission, eh? Anyone seen my Chiwawa lately? Her name’s FLUFFY, she’s black ‘N white and wearin’ a flea collar...
