Even though I have already sent a brief note of congratulations, it still bummed me out today to receive an email announcing the departure of Brent Maurer from the PR department of Rahal Letterman Racing.
As you may recall, Brent was kind enough to grant me a thoughtful interview a while back while he was still conducting his two year tour of Danicamania. And while "My Name Is IRL" has helped put me in contact with lots of really cool people, don't think for a moment it grants me all kinds of access to IndyCar insiders. I'm just a fan like you who happens to yap in a public forum, so it's not like I have the ear of Tony George. (Although my wife helped Tony George's bride buy her wedding dress MANY years ago, but that's a story for another day.)
Anyhow, not only did Brent take time from his exceedingly busy schedule, but since then he's always returned my messages when asking about RLR news - although truthfully the discussion almost always turns to basketball. Go figure.
Now he's off to handle Public Relations for Barbasol. (That's the shaving cream, not the dead horse.) I'm sure Brent knows what he's doing, but for some reason I feel like suggesting he resurrect this little diddy.
I have a sad story to tell you.
It may hurt your feelings a bit.
Last night when I walked into my bathroom,
I stepped in a big pile of ...
Shaving cream, be nice and clean.
Shave everyday and you'll always look keen.
