I’ve been following Carl Edwards’ retirement story since in broke on Tuesday. I knew I wanted to write about it, but as I was thinking, I realized that I had to say something to someone else. So I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to Brian Scott for what I said back in December.
For those who don’t remember, I slammed Brian Scott for walking away from his racing career to focus on “the next phase of his career.” I made my feelings known that I thought it wasn’t a great decision, and that he is making a serious mistake. After what happened with Carl Edwards, I realized how wrong he really was, and I felt bad for saying that. I realized that both Carl and Brian put a lot of thought into these decisions, they took what was the best decision, not just for them but their families. It seemed like a rash decision at the time, but with hindsight , it was the right decision. I wish them both the best.
The next item is the new blog format for The Driver Suit Blog. I thought the old format would work well, but what has been happening is that when I do paint schemes on different days, it changes the fonts. I hated the way it looked, and I tried everything to fix it. Seeing that the best option would be to change the entire layout, I made that decision. There are still some issues, but I’ll work around it.
Also, for the last bit this week, the San Diego Chargers became the LA Chargers. As such, they introduced a logo for the move, which didn’t go over too well. So since everyone else was having fun with their logo, I might as well too. Check it out.
