We've all watched celebrities on Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel read Mean Tweets. You may have even re-watched the YouTube version and sent a link to all your friends exclaiming "Someone actually sent that on Twitter!"
While reading a Mean Tweet sent to you on camera gives some laughs, Jimmie takes it one step further and responds to the "haters" of the social world. Why let them have all the fun??
Here's a collection of some of Jimmie's finest comebacks and retorts. And please remember Twitter-verse: a mean Tweet is a mean Tweet. A mean Tweet with humor is an open door for banter...
The Jimmie Johnson Foundation announced today that its annual Golf Tournament and Dinner Auction raised more than $650,000. The 2014 edition of the tournament and auction is the eighth year for the event that has raised more than $500,000 each year since its inception in 2007.
“This event keeps getting better and better,” said Johnson. “I’m so thankful to everyone that supports the Foundation. It is because of sponsors like Lowe’s, that we are able to provide support to K-12 public education. Chani (wife) and I look forward to continuing the great work of the Foundation.”
Johnson, NASCAR’s six-time reigning Sprint Cup Series champion, hosted more than 130 golfers at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, California for Wednesday’s golf tournament. The night before the golf tournament, the Johnsons hosted more than 200 guests at a special dinner and auction, with music from the KIPP Adelante Orchestra.
NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion, Jimmie Johnson, will be the first athletes ever to host a Google+ Shoppable Hangout on Thursday, February 20 at 2 p.m. ET before the 56th running of the Daytona 500.
Dale and Jimmie will give fans the opportunity to join them in a Google+ Hangout, answering their questions and discussing the upcoming 2014 season. In addition, the NASCAR stars will showcase select new items from their 2014 merchandise as well as debuting items exclusive to the Google+ Hangout. Utilizing groundbreaking Google technology, the Shoppable Hangout gives viewers the ability to purchase items discussed within the Hangout via clickable links embedded next to the live video chat.
“We are always looking for ways to give our fans new experiences,” said Jimmie, two-time Daytona 500 winner. “Google+ Hangouts have been a great way to interact with fans and now the ‘Shoppable’ feature adds a cool and unique element.”
"Interact with Jimmie Johnson, even in passing, and you'll notice almost immediately that his greatness should not be measured in wins or championships. It should not even be measured in a race car.
The wins and the championships and the race car merely provide the platform to display the impact of his greatness.
The greatness is the man.
Jimmie Johnson is a father and husband first and foremost, a six-time Sprint Cup champion second.
This is an estimate based on experience: I probably know 20 men who will tell you Jimmie Johnson is his best friend. Rare is the man who integrates seamlessly into every crowd. Rarer still is the man who means it.
Johnson makes it look easy. He makes everything look easy. That's his true talent. Because the fact is, nothing he does is easy. Racing is not easy. Winning is damn sure not easy. Parenting and husbanding aren't easy. He's just willing to work harder than you are."
"Going to Phoenix International Raceway always serves as a good reminder that there are more than just a few Jimmie Johnson fans rather than just a slew of haters.
His West Coast roots are obvious at places such as Phoenix, Las Vegas, Sonoma and California. Fans flood the stands in their 48 gear.
They probably will have more gear to buy after this weekend..."
