Race car drivers are every bit the athletes that golfers are. I'm kinda surprised they picked Kurt over Kyle though.

Same thing I was thinking... I am a Kyle fan and have been to a few races... and let me tell you, that guy is ver polarizing with very few liking him... Kurt isn't liked either but people don't really care or say as much about Kurt.

I don't know how Tiger is a top that list.... In all honesty most times tiger is on tv, people are rooting for him... they want tiger to win and get back to his old self... Now people like A-Rod, James, Kyle, Vick and TO people dislike and love to watch them fail... they are the ones really disliked ones by the fans. I will also throw brady up there.

Plaxico is a little surprising to me to because the got shot himself, did the time, and well, no one really cares about him to even dislike him.

Just my opinion.

Here's the Top 10:

  1. Michael Vick
  2. Tiger Woods
  3. Plaxico Burress
  4. Ndamukong Suh
  5. Kris Humphries
  6. LeBron
  7. Kobe
  8. T.O.
  9. A-Rod
  10. Kurt Busch

Burress is way too high. Shouldn't even be on the list. Kurt Busch is a Class A prick who should be higher. The rest of the list looks about right. I'd put Tom Brady in there.

I don't know who Kris Humphries is and really don't care, but I am concerned that there is but one white guy on this list who doesn't run, jump, or throw and is considered an athlete.

From Merriam Webster:

"..a person who is trained in or good at sports, games, or exercises that require physical skill and strength."

So, I guess in that sense I have to consider Kurt Busch an athlete. But I'll never consider NASCAR a "sport."

Obviously you never hit turn 1 at Charlotte Motor Speedway at 165 MPH! Just coming out of the pits and hitting that banking (I can't imagine what Daytona feels like!) Your Jockey's will be so far up your rectum, that you will be spitting cotton! And if it's your first race, it will be the next day before your @$$ hole relaxes and you can actually take a dump!

Then on top of that, try wrestling a ton and a half car for 4 hours at speeds in excess of 165 MPH!

I would say that have to be in pretty good condition for that.

Kyle Busch should replace Plaxico. IMO

Lol at all the rednecks in this thread trying to justify why they watch that garbage by convincing themselves driving in a circle 500 times takes more than concentration and rehydration in the fitness department

I work out multiple times a week and do some minor crossfit training. I'm more of an athlete than Kurt busch.

I went off an aircraft carrier catapult in an F-14. Zero to 145 in about half a second- how's that? Full afterburner barrel rolls into a 2.5G vertical climb and a deliberate apex stall where you black out... pretty cool.

I'd say my 2 hours in the back seat doing that was as exciting as driving a car in a circle.

And I didn't say NASCAR drivers weren't athletes. Matter of fact, I said by definition they were athletes, but that doesn't make NASCAR a sport.

NASCAR isn't a sport, driving isn't an athletic skill. Go dynamite a pond, Jimbo.
