And Now For Something Totally Different…

Well, I told you I’d be doing something wild and crazy today, but just what I’m sure most of you were unaware. Well, I shall reveal that to you.

Let me just say that yesterday was a total bust. Qualifying got rained out after the first round and a friend I was supposed to meet up with for dinner got sick as a dog so that got thrown out of the water too. Bleh.

At least I got a pic with the legendary Jimmie Johnson’s #48 Chevy Camaro ZL1:


And it cost me nothing. Love this pic – so much it became my new FB profile pic and probably my new Gravatar and “About Me” photo.

Anyway, enough about yesterday – onto today. Today is going to be cold as shit here in No Limits, TX. This Xfinity Series race is going to be one cold motherfucker. Yes, even it gets cold in Texas, but for it to get down to freezing in April? Not so common.

Anyway, ain’t no way I can go bare legged as in the photo aboveย in that cold of a temperature. I have quite a tolerance for cold but not quite that much of one. Alas, I’ve never worn long pants to the races and I have no desire to start now, so what am I to do?

Well, I throw some leggings on under my “Davy” Dukes of course:


Yep, this is my first time trying the whole “shorts-with-leggings” look but I think I’m a fan. I can already tell they’re keeping my legs warmer than long pants actually and although I’m still not sure about the tightness of them on my legs I do love the softness of the fabric.

What I like is that not only do they keep me warm you can still very clearly see the profile of my legs – which I do regard as my best physical feature. I ran my ass off to get legs like this, I’m gonna flaunt the hell out of it. Maybe now I have an option to do so in cold temperatures such as what we are facing in No Limits, TX today (right at freezing this morning, low 40s F/mid-single digits C at green flag and only topping out in the mid-to-upper 40s F/upper single digits C at the end of the day).

I’ve always been one to do things my own way, and maybe this is just a new avenue for me to express my true inner self. I’m gradually coming out of hiding and more into my own than I ever have and I consider this to be a good thing. It continues to improve my overall satisfaction with life so I can’t complain too much huh?

Well, it’s off to the races for me. Catch you all later!

So have you ever worn shorts with leggings? Did you like the look? Do tell me what you thought!

*Note: Leggings are West Loop brand L-XL size – $5.99 from Walgreens. Fit me all but perfectly – for reference, the shorts pictured above are standard men’s size 34.ย

  1. Just think of all the colors and designs and patterns of leggings available. Rock on!๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™Œ
    I’m not really a NASCAR fan but #48 is from the town where I live. I used to go out to watch the local races before they closed the track.


    • Really? You’re in El Cajon? I guess they don’t have a race track there anymore?

      And yeah, I’ve been thinking about where to take this. I kind of like the leggings thing. I doubt I’d ever wear them alone (rather I’d always opt to wear them under shorts) but it’s kind of a nice change of pace.


      • Yep. El Cajon. I used to go out to Cajon Speedway once in a while. They closed in 2005. There is a track up on the Barona Indian Reservation but I haven’t been up there.
        You could do the leggings without the shorts and add a ginormous codpiece like David Bowie in The Labyrinth ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ of course, that might not go over so well in Texas ๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™ˆ


      • Eh, Texas isn’t as backwoods as a lot of outsiders seem to think. A lot of it is, don’t get me wrong, but a lot of the metro areas are much more accepting.


      • I’ve only ever been through the panhandle of Texas…Amarillo. That was many years ago. Shame on me for being a SoCal snob ๐Ÿ˜ž. Besides, two of my favorite people live in Texas. Which means it *must* have some awesomeness by virtue of their residence๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’Œ
