Settle down hardcharger. You're going to be ok. No one is going to poop on you. I'm not into that scene.
Over-worked melodrama cheapens someone's real accomplishments. Nicky won the motorcycle championship. That's great. Is it the greatest single season championship ever? I don't think so. Was it hard fought? Yes. Were people dying all around Nicky and his life a living hell? No. So don't make it out like it was. I'll borrow one of your Harlequin romance novels if I want to read that kind of cheese schlock.
