Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin Start New NASCAR Team for Darrell Wallace in 2021

Yeah, your Oh So Humble El Senor Sportyblog Scribe Touchdown Tommy knows Y’all are most likely totally engrossed in that Freakin’ Stick ‘N Ball sport Sweeping thou Nation; Hut-Hut, Omaha! OOMPH!

 

As I’m Arse-sumin’ I’m the only one who’s Not Ready, or Cares for some Football, like in that 7,999lb Monstrosity known as the National Football League, ergo NFL. Gory Hell, I Don’t even know how my revered Tennessee titans are doing so far? Hmm, Did they have to Cancel one of Thar Games for some Corona thingy, Eh?

 

I first Heard the News via My NFB Newsline for The Blind telephone service’s The Guardian’s Sports section which I typically begin my mornings with to “S-E-E” what’s happening in thou World of Sports Internationally.

 

As I was very surprised, but Happy to Hear where NASCAR’s only African American Driver Darrell Wallace Jr. would be landing next year after having recently announced his decision to leave the Famed King ‘O RASSCAR’s Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) team at season’s end.

 

Although I thought it would be Awesome if he’d been tabbed as Jimmy Johnson’s successor at Hendrick Motorsports. Not only giving him first Class equipment and the chance to become only the second ever Black Driver to Win a NASCAR race, but making a true statement towards furthering Diversity in NASCAR.

 

Yet obviously I didn’t see this scenario happening. As its Super cool that the transcendent Star Athlete known simply as MJ’, aka Michael Jordan’s forming a partnership with current Roundy-Round Driver Denny Hamlin to start a One-car team for Wallace next year.

And then thoust Seas ‘O Synchronicity Splashed Mwah once again, Speakin’ of Round Ball, aka Basketball, or more importantly I suppose the NBA which is in the midst of deciding it’s Championship Finalists, or at least was when I began Scribblin’ this…

 

Thuh-Duh! Wadda Yuhs know? There was a very poignant article on The Guardian comparing LA Lakers Mega Star King James, nee LeBron to the late, Great Muhammad Ali! And how apparently many White Folks want LeBron to Fail, since how Dare He Oppose some Buffoon; Oh Never Mind! And notice I didn’t even mention the Hippocracy of those Booing at the Kansas City Chiefs NFL Season Opener…

 

Critics want LeBron to Fail just like they did with Ali, Look How that Turned Out

  

As these two topics made me think about the article I’d listened to previously from Car and Driver Magazine this past August about the Rampant Racism NASCAR’s very first ever African American Driver Wendell Scott endured during his tenure in Stock Cars premiere division in his eventual Hall of Fame career.

 

The Fact that not only did NASCAR pull an apparent Slight ‘O Hand Wayback in late 1963 by errantly awarding Buck Baker an erroneous victory, denying Scott his moment of Glory on the top step of the podium.

 

But have also Never Awarded him his Winner’s Trophy, for which I think at the very least, NASCAR should place a replica trophy in Wendell’s Hall of Fame mementos at their museum…
