A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Awwws….(and some words about twitter)

Posted by Amy in General | NASCAR

Instead of the usual Friday TQMS* post that I usually do- I thought I would share this picture that Tony tweeted not long after he joined Twitter because for some reason I find PorkChop to be ridiculously adorable:

“Porkchop and I are wore out after watching the truck race”- Tony Stewart’s 2nd official tweet (Click picture to be taken to the original tweet).

Awwww….I can’t be the only one.  Cute lil piggie. Actually not so little- Porkchop appears to be about the size of my beagle.  Hey Tony how about a play date? (Kidding- although Gracie loves to play with other dogs- I think PorkChop  might scare her and then she would scare him with her crazy shrill baying and he’d likely head for the hills – or wherever lil piggies hide).

So if you haven’t started following Tony Stewart yet- you definitely should- if not just for the occasional PorkChop picture. I have to say that I love twitter- because I feel it gives you a real sense of your favorite drivers on a more personal level. Case in point- I actually enjoy both Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr more since they each started tweeting. I think it gives you more insight into their personalities beyond what you see on TV.  I like that.  I admit that I have some trepidation about Tony Stewart tweeting though- I worry the “haters” will drive him away because unfortunately they are a plenty and that would be a shame.  Then how else would we know he likes his Spaghettios cold ( since that tweet I envision him receiving a massive amounts of cans of Spaghettios as gifts from fans…as well as offers for a good home cooked meals).  I think fans love seeing life through their driver’s eyes. I know I do. If I ever get the opportunity to interview Tony again- I thing I will ask him about this.

On a totally unrelated point- the newest Mobil 1 TOONED starring animated Tony Stewart is out! Be sure to check out Oil: An Odyssey:

You can find these and more over at the Mobil 1 Youtube Channel (and on the Mobil 1 Facebook Page).

And since pictures are the theme of this post- I will give you an early Gratuitous Tony Stewart picture (you’re welcome):
