James Stewart Butt Patch Symbolism
Friday, August 17, 2012
James Stewart has a massive fan base.
is supposed to return to motocross racing at the Unadilla National this weekend. After being sidelined through the middle of the season, JS7 will adorn a butt patch on his Answer Racing
motocross gear that shows 1,000,000 with the thumbs-up icon for Facebook “Likes” in honor of his landmark number of FB followers on his Athlete page
. That’s either a lot of likes or a big, symbolic thumb up his ass depending on which side of the Stewart camp you reside.
There’s no doubt that having Stewart on the track aboard his Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 adds flavor to the series, and he’s already proven that he still has the speed to win; it’s staying power and dedication that fans want to see. Obviously he has more people cheering for him than the average guy with 1,007,876 likes at the time of this blog, but he’s also a favorite target for haters - despite the fact that Suzuki has everything to lose until his contract actually starts in 2013. That’s one of the problems with being at the top. I hope he’s truly healthy and can perform at the standards he and the rest of the racing world have come to expect.
