Kimi Raikkonen is just not that kind of Pokémon!

I was going through my profile pictures tonight on Facebook. Contrary to what you would expect, most of them are not, in fact, of me, but rather Kimi Raikkonen, Felipe Massa, the two of them together, or a fabulously sexy red car. Well, really, what did you expect?! Anyways, I stumbled across this in my album, and oh!, nothing takes me back more! I just love it!

Finding this also reminded me that I have not been consistently giving much love to Kimi Raikkonen. Yeah, a lot of this is probably linked to Felipe Massa's polarizing cuteness (and genuine skill behind the wheel!) easily eclipsing the Can't-Be-Bothered Raikkonen of 2008 in my mind. There were more than a few times last season that I would gladly have punched Kimi Raikkonen several times in the gut, had I been within swinging distance. Nonetheless, this revelation has left me much chagrined. At this point in time, I want nothing more than for Kimi to go out in Australia and trounce everyone (except for Felipe Massa, who I love dearly, and Sébastien Bourdais, because he seems a bit vulnerable at present). Essentially, I want him to do well so everyone stops saying he's shit, because frankly he's not. I had this conversation with my roommate the other day in which I voiced these outrages and concerns over Raikkonen's 2009 form. His reply follows.

It's like, 'Oh, Shitty Raikkonen's coming around again! Oh, here he comes. What a Slowbro!'

LOL all you like, but Kimi Raikkonen is just not that kind of Pokémon!

Also, it's smiling a bit too much.
