The lobster Logano won two years ago may be rotting in his closet
The gospel according to "Twitter" has often fascinated me. In addition to the fact that it's a quick and simple way of mass communication, it can also become a major source of entertainment. From "hey, that's funny" to "wow, you should have kept your finger off of the send button," there's seems to be no limits to this popular social network.
That same principle applies to the world of NASCAR racing. Tweets are a great way for a driver to interact with the fans. It's also a buffet filled with one liners that often feeds the needs of the racing media. A case in point involves Kyle Petty and Kenny Wallace. On any given day of the week, their tweets are loaded with humor and sarcasm well worth your reading time.
One of the better tweets that I've seen lately surfaced last Thursday from NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Joey Logano. The message read: "look what I found in my bedroom closet." Underneath the message was a photo of a giant lobster. This was the traditional giant lobster that is presented to winners of NASCAR races at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Wait a minute. Logano received one of those giant lobsters because he won a race at New Hampshire. But that win was back in 2009.
I'm just going to assume that he was playing a very funny, and well staged, "Twitter" prank on us. However, if it turns out it wasn't a prank then it means that Joey Logano has a dead lobster that has been lying in his closet for over two years now.
If that lobster is real then you would have thought he would have noticed that fishy smell. (EEWWW !!!!)
