SPF: Overthinking

Kristine at Random and Odd gave us a Stuff Portrait Friday assignment that is a little ‘out of the box, overthinking, or underthinking, off the hook or in the oven’. Basically it’s going to be hard or easy, it’s up to you, she said.

1. YES!
2. NO!
3. MAYBE.

It feels like EVERY SINGLE day revolves around those three words. Show me what is a yes, no or maybe in your house.

Yes: There were rednecks everywhere at Texas Motor Speedway for the Dickies 500 on Sunday.

Swear to God, those are REALLY HIS teeth. It was no little jokey fake teeth.

NO: As in 'No, he did not just do that.'

The asshole in the red Dale Jr. jersey talked on his cell phone throughout the entire National Anthem. And talked loudly. Then, when Army of Dad told him how disrespectful he was, all the loser could focus on was that AoD was mad that the dipwad was talking on the cell phone. The fact that said douchebag was talking DURING the National Anthem was completely lost on this imbecile.

MAYBE: This guy may or may not be batting for the other team.

He was part of a truly irritating crowd of redneckish/yuppie couples who spent the whole race walking in and out (in front of me, no less) to get another overpriced beer, cold fries or yet more Tony Stewart attire. The pink shorts came back with this douchebag's girl and he promptly put them on his skinny ass. We never figured out why. The couple sitting behind us laughed hysterically when they saw me taking this picture. This jerk and his friends were grating on my last nerve. They had ants in their pants worse than pre-teen girls at a football game. Then, one of his drunk girlfriends fell on me. I wanted to push her down the bleachers.

Anyway, it was a good race. Tony Stewart made me a fan. Poor Kasey was in second place with about five laps to go when his effing car blew up on him. I thought I would explode, too.

One more yes, no and maybe all rolled into one:

Yes, we had a good time.
No, we were not the biggest rednecks at the races.
Maybe, our Army of Dad will take me back in April.

My honey ought to give me bonus points this week. I had a theme this week. Did you play?

    Right before bed, and the tune of "Who wears short shorts!?" is going through my head.

    Don't let Kristine get on you too much about NASCAR - she rides my behind about it too. I always figure, what the heck does she know - she likes the Raiders.

    I LOVE NASCAR and I'm so insanely jealous that you were at the race.

    BTW - Did the rude National Anthem disrespecting moron have a big Katie-Holmes-Type-Herpes-Sore on his mouth or am I seeing things tonight?

    Man..I'm so freaking jealous! I love Nascar and would love to see a race in person. The closest track is nearly 4 hours away. Maybe next year.

    I'm sorry you had idiots distracting you from the race, that had to suck.

    Great themed SPF!!

    I played.

    Wow - you "SO" had a theme, great SPF! My first time, so I didn't know what I was doing, of course, that is most days for me! -LOL
    Anyone that talks on a cell during our National Anthem, is simply an idiot rolled up in a moron! And with that I leave with a song we all know and love..."I'm...too sexy for my shorts..." LOL Now I have that song in my head...

    A redneck yuppie is that 30ish person who has money to spend and obviously has a good job, but is acting like a retard by "getting in the spirit" of the race by purchasing the race gear that she/he would never otherwise buy or wear. They were trying to get into the spirit by getting drunk, wearing Tony Stewart attire and acting like assholes. Thusly, the redneck-yuppie tag. I just made it up. Aren't you impressed? ;)

    Oh yeah, and we live 20 minutes from the race track and have for the past nine years, so I should have been attending races long ago.

    Well it is more like 1-2 hours at least on race days...

    Boy, I had no idea racetracks were such scary places. Great pictures!

    I played!

    Hey AOM! I played! I themed too. I love your hunting jacked. The teeth and shorts were just priceless. Are you talking about Kasey Kahne? He's so pretty. :)

    And I thought the people sitting down from me were bad. That many definitely defines the word redneck.

    That guy had the guts to wear pink shorts at the race? What a moron.

    Luckily the only bad NASCAR fans around me were those retarded Junior fans...enough already with the obscence gestures.

    Sounds like you had a good time!

    AoD was wearing a highly appropriate T-shirt for the venue.

    While you have no shot now of working in marketing for NASCAR, I will say that those are some pretty funny and fairly accurate portrayals of some of those that show up out there.

    As an aside...I might get to start shooting NASCAR next year again...should be fun.

    I played as well this week, though I did not get to shoot anything new...come on by!
