There's another Dale Earnhardt retrospective thing about him and his company and 'keeping the legend alive'
He raced cars.
He did it pretty well.
What a fucking legend.
Yes, I know there are people who are fans and who really did pin a lot of admiration and good feelings on him... but does that mean the whole world should mourn?
He died while he was racing. He was a participant in a dangerous sport. It's not as if he was gunned down by a speed addled neo nazi midget or something. It's not as if it was a true and total shocker. It's not as if the thought of someone dying in a nascar race was completely fucking unheard of.
Guess I'm just cynical.
