This Week’s T’d Up: Sam Hornish Sr. – all liquored up on geritol mojitos


Man, oh man. 


Its not too often that you’ll amble by this site and catch IndyCar news, but boy is it a good week for it.  Not the racing of course, because you can see that kind of racing on I-85 in Atlanta most evenings. 

No friends, what I speak of is the post-race incident between Sam Hornish, Jr. and Tony Kanaan.  Now you may remember (all 18 IRL fans) that Mr. Kanaan is not a nube when it comes to post race altercations.  Earlier this year, after being… erm… displeased with having to pit near a woman (gasp!) and the subsequent delay of his exit, he had this to say:

“If I ever pit with her again, I’ll never drive for this team again….EVER!”

There’s also this classic moment with Marco Andretti.


At least Andretti had the common freakin courtesy to bring an umbrella to the fight.

But I’m not here to talk about Kanaan or his temperment today sportsfans racefan (probably has something to do with having to wear a 7-Eleven logo everyday).  I’m here to talk about the lovely lady he is rubberfacing Sam Hornish, Sr. – Father of latest Kanaan-sticuffs participant Sam Hornish, Jr.

More wrinkly aggression after the jump. 

yeahmyfaceisrubberbaby.jpgNoting how happy Kanaan is this week (can you blame him… jeez kid… nice work), in the other lane, Hornish Sr. has some real soul-searching to do.  Not only did he engage a younger, stronger, biggernosed “athlete” in a physical fight, but he stepped into that fight to protect his son. 

Pops… seriously… your kid is 28 years old.  Just because you have on diapers, doesn’t mean he still does.

In the aftermath there has been plenty of commentary and zero apologies… as if you, racefan, had expected one

Kanaan’s side:

“dads should be in the grandstands, not in the pits”

Hornish Sr’s rebuttal:

“Zoot suit. Garble. Pancakes. Latex Spoon. I pooped again.”

Can’t really argue with that kind of logic. 

Hornish Jr. could not be reached for comment.  He’s grounded.

Old Man River, for once again wandering off the farm and onto pit lane, for giving the your-son’s-a-pussy rumor credibility, and for making me envy Tony Kanaan (seriously do you see his ladyfriend?!? Jesus…) you are hereby:

    Haha, I work for Sr. at Hornish Bros. Trucking! He’s not been in a good mood lately! Maybe he shouldn’t throw his weight around where no one observes him as authority. . .

    Thanks for your post. I’d like to say that the price of car insurance varies from one plan to another, due to the fact there are so many different issues which play a role in the overall cost. Such as, the brand name of the motor vehicle will have a huge bearing on the cost. A reliable aged family car or truck will have a more economical premium than a flashy expensive car.
