Tony Stewart Fined $25,000 for ‘Bullshit’

I know you watch NASCAR, and I know you love it because you’re a god damn red-blooded American, but for all our Canadian fans, check out Tony Stewart’s post-race interview at Indy on Sunday:


That “expletive” done cost No. 20 a cool $25,000 and 25 points in the Chase (which pretty much means nothing to me). It also cost team owner Joe Gibbs 25 points (which definitely means nothing to me). But was the “bullshit” on purpose?

You can see in the video how Stewart seems to realize what he’s just done on live TV and laughs about it. Two weeks prior, he was pissed off at ESPN — who broadcasted the race at Indy on Sunday — for criticizing him after he said he was going to celebrate a win by drinking an entire case of Schlitz.

“I don’t want anybody from ESPN talking about how irresponsible I am, even though it’s legal to do everything I did. Heaven forbid you actually have fun in life.”

Right on, my man. Granted, ESPN is the moral authority in this country, but I still believe drinking a case down to the cardboard is the best way to celebrate just about anything … win or lose.
