I know a lot of you race fans are totally stoked for the Daytona 500 this weekend and disappointed in my lack of coverage about Jeff Gordon being disqualified or that 72-year-old geezer not making the field. It's all such an exciting way to kick off the 13-month-long NASCAR season, I can barely contain my excitement.
But then I saw this tidbit from Ben Maller:
Mattel has unveiled Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon Barbie dolls in conjunction with Sunday's race. The NASCAR dolls have Barbie dressed in Gordon and Earnhardt attire and are available for $34.95. Both dolls are in stores now.
As soon as I saw this I emailed 289 frantically: need Photoshop immediately. I can't say I was overly enamored with his work at first, but then I got thinking: hell, I'll wear work boots and Earnhardt gear if it gets me two chicks that hot. The one on the right even looks like my Miami crush Jenny Woo. Probably feels like her, too.
What, you think they look too plastic? Pfff. Goddam purists. The same people who don't like breast implants are the same ones who are still bitching about the designated hitter. Get over it, people. Adapt with the times as they get sexier, or you'll be stuck cheering for the NL forever.
