Midnight Marbles, where you're all on probation for three races

So ... quiet days in NASCAR these days, huh?

We've had the Edwards/Keselowski Atlanta spin, we've had Dale Earnhardt Jr. failing to live up to his pole position, we've had Jimmie Johnson not winning! And we've had plenty of new visitors to our site this week. If you're one of them, welcome. This is where we hang to talk about anything and everything, NASCAR or not.

Oh, and after reading through the first hundred or so of the thousands of driveby comments, well, I kinda lost it. Not so much "lost it" as decided to offer up a few responses, via Twitter, on the most common quickie comments. Yes, it got fun on Monday night. (Yes, this is a shameless bid to get you to sign up for Twitter and follow me at @jaybusbee. Trust me, if you like The Marbles, the Twitter feed is like the must-see DVD extras.) Anyway, here's what I had to say on Twitter Monday night:

Notes for commenters: 1. Calling it "CRAPCAR" or "NA$CAR" isn't nearly as funny as you think it is. 2. Racing was NOT better in... (cont'd)....the "old days." It wasn't. Deal with it. 3. If you say you're giving up on NASCAR, beat it. Nobody wants to hear your whine. (cont'd) 4.NASCAR IS a sport. And even if it wasn't, who cares? Does any other sport have this many whiners? (Well, Duke hoops, but it's the team.)

I feel so much better now ... though it's looking like I may need to offer up a sequel after Tuesday's NASCAR statement on Edwards. Feel free to leave your own rants in the comments below, and we'll see you back here soon!
