Motor Sports Karma…Even Bernie Can Twist It

Filed under: The Disciple Blogs — Disciple of INDYCAR @ 6:20 am

Sometimes these blogs write themselves. This one did the moment I saw this picture:

A few weeks ago Bernie Eccelstone was mugged in London and they took some cash and jewelry. That in and of itself is bad (although some might say it could not have happened to a more deserving chap), but what makes this story utterly entertaining, at least for me, is the fact that Bernie turned his own mugging into an opportunity to make a buck. ‘See what people will do for a Hublot.’ Really?

The picture above became part of this ad:

I love this sport but even its biggest players turn out to be some of the most prodigious sleazebags in the entire world.

    funny that bernie the muppet getting rolled is more relevant racing news that anything the irl could regurgitate to the press.

    shouldn’t you be blogging about the new ims kidsclub or something similarly more down your alley??

    Editor’s Note: Why should I do that when it’s so fun to laugh at idiots still throwing one of the most stupid, immature floor fits ever years after their favorite series self immolated itself? Twice.

  3. “I love this sport but even its biggest players turn out to be some of the most prodigious sleazebags in the entire world.”

    …or as Bernie himself put it, he wants to show some courage and show that he will not be beaten down by mindless thugs.
    There are two sides to every coin.

  4. not sure which is more disturbing on this post…the drag queen with too much eye shadow or the obese loser dood with the bell helmet – which looks more like an aluminum can jammed his head while he’s playing race car driver. either way, these two gherkins must be realated with a couple of eschlongated proboscises like those.

    disturbing….both of ’em.

  5. Defender, maybe it’s time to stop publishing the commentary from the retards.

    Editor’s Note…I have considered that from time to time, but it is usually a lot more entertaining to let the retardation of the obsessed followers speak for itself so we can laugh at it.

  6. Dear Defender:

    Like the incredible story surrounding Oswald and his movements following the assassination of JFK (bus ride home, shoot a cop, flee to the nearest movie theater, etc.), I remain dubious that the Evil Troll just happened to visit his executive offices, in an empty business section of London, after 10 PM at night, without security and only accompanied by his young and hot Brasilian girlfriend…and sporting $300K in jewelry. If Bernie thinks that we are dense enough to believe this nonsense, then he really is the master of disinformation, rumor and outright lies designed to improve his failing image. Bernie concocted this cock and bull story to deflect attention away from his detrimental comments regarding the near robbery and potential kidnapping of Jenson Button in Brasil…I just hope that the insurance company that Bernie is probably trying to collect from denies his claim after finding that the Evil Troll staged this whole affair to generate sympathy for himself.
