Boris Said on Greg Biffle: 'He Won't Hide from Me Long': After a crash during Monday's Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen, Greg Biffle took a swing at Boris Said while he was still strapped into his car. Said's response: "He is the most unprofessional little scaredy cat I've ever seen in my life. He wouldn't even fight me like a man after. So if someone texts me his address, I'll go see him Wednesday at his house and show him what he really needs. He needs a whooping and I'm going to give it to him." More details.

NASCAR needs more drivers who talk like Said and fewer sponsor-citing soulless corporate automatons.

I've always been impressed in a sort of uncomfortable way with just how disciplined those guys are about mentioning sponsors. It makes me think of one of those bad 80s dystopia movies, like maybe they have some sort of electronic bomb inside them that will explode and kill them if they fail to mention all of their sponsors even while exiting a burning wreck.

Ah, I see NASCAR is starting to get exciting. I might have to start tuning in.

IIRC, I believe there is a program the drivers attend to learn how to get all the sponsers names in when ever they are interviewed, and how to sound natural when they are doing it. I could be wrong. I heard this from someone who had an "in" with NASCAR back in the day
