James "The Spoiled Baby" Stewart Drops Out of 2008 AMA Supercross

Last Saturday, James Stewart announced that he was dropping out of the 2008 AMA Supercross season because he hurt his knee again last December 20.

This is a bunch of baloney. I mean, I believe James when he says he hurt his knee again. But he is dropping out of the season because he is afraid that if he doesn't, he will lose the title straight-up to Chad Reed.

  1. Chad and James were tied for the points lead going into last Saturday's Anaheim II round.
  2. Each had won one race, and in each race they were running very similar lap times.
  3. James won the last race - he WON THE RACE with a "hurt" knee!
James knows there is a very good chance he will lose the title to Chad, hurt knee or not. He also knows that he is stronger outdoors than everyone else. Racing the rest of the supercross season puts his outdoor season in jeopardy, whereas the supercross season is already in jeopardy because Chad is sufficiently competitive. He also knows that by dropping out, everyone will speculate that, had James raced the whole season, he would have beaten Chad, which we all know is not necessarily true (and also just as dumb a thing to say as "If James hadn't crashed he would have won").

One thing we do know - Chad Reed wouldn't have dropped out. He raced an entire second half of a season with a third degree shoulder separation. He would suck it up and race, because he is a tough dude. That is something James is not familiar with.

James Stewart: "I am a spoiled prissy baby mama's boy."
