One Oval Jimmie Johnson Can’t Get A Handle On

We lived in the South for over 10 years, and covered NASCAR during that time. We wouldn’t say we love the sport as much as say, the mustard barbecue in South Carolina, but it was fun following it.

The chase for the cup thing now has us too confused to really care much about the *sport* anymore. But the Daytona 500 is right around the corner, so we’ll be spicing in NASCAR items when we can.

The CHARLOTTE OBSERVER today records Jimmie Johnson’s amusing ruminations about his recent visit to the Oval Office: “When you’re in the hallway waiting to go into the Oval Office, the door that leads you in there doesn’t have a handle on the outside.

You can see where there’s a door, and then you’re waiting and waiting and you’re not sure which door is the right door or what’s going on. And then the door flies open and there’s the President. It’s weird.”

So there’s confusion outside the office too?
