Social Media Moment Of The Year Nominee: Later, McHaters

When you think of Jamie McMurray, you think of a kind, gentle soul. The kind of fellow who signs every autograph, poses for every picture, and is way into bands like Dashboard Confessional.

Time to vacate those thoughts. Jamie is actually capable of taking the verbal propane torch to anyone who dare cross his path. Don’t know this? Kyle Larson knows this. He knows this all too well, and the burns haven’t healed.

Lately, because of an apparent lack of anything better to do, folks on Twitter have been taking Jamie to task because of … his attire and footwear when he appears on NASCAR on FOX. That’s how social media works – Jamie could recite an editorial entitled “Why Kyle Busch is so much better than Richard Petty” and Twitter users will be posting screenshots of his feet with “WHAT ARE THOSE????”

Here’s what they forget – Jamie McMurray is retired now, and therefore has all the time in the world to scour his mentions for static. Not only that … he has time to check out the profiles of those who dare cross him. And the result:

So here we are – you’re sitting there with third-degree burns, while Jamie drops the mic and walks away in the shoes he wants to wear that have proper comfort and arch support. Let it go on record that March Madness games hadn’t even tipped off, and a 5’8” player from Missouri had the first massive dunk.
