Busbee: You didn't see <i>me</i> cheering Daytona 500 winner


Jay Busbee reports there was a "mini-controversy" in the Daytona 500 media center after reporters applauded Trevor Bayne's big upset. "What really galled me," he writes, "was the cheering after Bayne finished his press conference. ...[If] I go whooping and cheering, it makes me look like a total amateur and cements the perception of bloggers as the text equivalent of sports talk callers. || Jeff Gluck: No cheering in the press box -- ever. || Dustin Long: Call me Old School, but I don't cheer. || Bryan Davis Keith: I applauded.
