Apollo Creed: See that look in their eyes, Rock? You gotta get that look back, Rock. Eye of the tiger, man.
Do you follow Brad on Twitter? He spends a lot of time there – doing a lot of talking. Someone needs to tell him, I’m looking at you Apollo Creed, that he doesn’t have the same look in his eyes ever since he won his Championship. And to stop talking. He won one Championship and was all of a sudden on top of the world. Maybe so on top that he forgot to be competitive again and missed out on the Chase this past year. One Championship? And you’re satisfied with that Brad? Last time I checked Jimmie Johnson has 6 Championships. Oh and I wouldn’t be surprised if he his renovating his pool room to make more room for a seventh.
Why Brad Keselowski will win the Chase in 2014:
Brad had a rough 2013. No one wants to follow up a Championship season with a no show when it comes to the playoffs. That’s like when you throw a gutter ball immediately throwing a strike. Not good. Brad gets picked on a lot by a lot of the other drivers. It didn’t seem to bother him, and even shut them up briefly after his Championship run – but now it’s back to square one. They pick on him like you pick on your younger brother. And Brad has got to fed up with this. He’s not going to hold back any punches this year. You can see it in his post race interviews when he all but tastes victory. He’s the kind of guy that will push NASCAR to the edge. You get in his way. He may just just send you right into the wall. This could be one of the most competitive years in Sprint Cup Racing we’ve ever seen, and don’t think Brad isn’t going to go away without a fight.
