Good Bye Jeff, You Will Not Be Missed

As always I am a day late and a dollar short but I guess that is how I am going to live my life.  So a few weeks ago Jeff Gordon made a shocking announcement.  This will be his last full season in NASCAR.  Wow!  I had to pick my jaw up off the floor when I heard that one!  Not that I am a Gordon fan but he is giant in the sport, like him or hate him.  I don’t see him leaving NASCAR though.  I think he will do like Dale Jarrett, Rusty Wallace, and Darrell Waltrip before him and find a spot in the TV booth somewhere.  And I think that would be a good job for him.  He will have the best of both worlds still be in NASCAR but with not as much of the travel so he can spend even more time with his kids.  Now just because this is going to be Gordon’s last year that does not mean I want him to win the Championship this year, that is something for Jimmie Johnson and only Jimmie Johnson to win in my eye.
