Saw the title and could not figure out why a Johnny Cash thread was in the sports section.
I am 27, and I thought that! Then I thought it might be about the undertaker for some reason
I was going with either that or a Stephen King novel.
Could have been fixed by referring him to The Intimidator.
I was thinking it was about Johnny Cash too :laugh2:
OK I give up title changed.
good move. The Man in Black was used long before the Intimidator ever got his first drivers license
Hard to believe its been 12 years.
I remember seeing Mike Helton make that statement like it was yesterday.
The sport has never been the same. Nobody was able to replace the Intimidator as the face of NASCAR. Nobody else has had "IT" like he had.
The Man in Black was the MAN!
Yeah he was. And if he was still alive I bet Dale Jr. would be a better driver. At least when his father was alive he would push Jr.
I was a big fan of his really loved watching him race. Really miss seeing him on the track. I remember watching the race and saw the accident but thought nothing of it. Race was over and Waltrip won, I was hungry so went out to grab something to eat. When I got home my buddy called me up and said can you believe Dale was killed in the race? I though he was just playing around, he told me you need to turn on the TV. I was stunned. I had seen that same kind of accident a thousand time and the driver would walk away, heck I have seen crashes that looked worse and the driver walked away.
You were the best #3 Dale "The Intimidator" Earnhardt
I think that if he had been told he would go out at the end of a Daytona 500 he would have said
"That is EXACTLY how I want to go out."
Dale Sr. was the man! Still is in my book. I actually cried a little when I learned he died. He was the reason I became a Jr. fan when Jr. began making a name for himself in the Busch Series.
He'd be driving for DEI. That organization went right down the tubes when the boss died.
He's the reason 99% of Jr. fans became Jr. fans.
Not just go out in the final turn of the 500 but knowing his race team was going to finish 1-2.
He didn't even try to win that race.
He was also nicknamed "Darth Vader" (black car, ruthlessness on the track)
Amusing, but definitely not unique.
