Johnson survives tire debacle at Indianapolis

My take on the race or lack there of. No doubt Goodyear dropped the ball. If I had bought a $100 ticket I would be pissed. Remember what F1 did when they had the tire problem a couple years ago at Indy. They gave any returning fan a ticket to the next race and that is exactly what NASCAR should do. Todays race was more of a 8 lap trophy dash than a 400 mile race For a sport that is trying to compete with the stick and ball guys todays exhibition leaves a lot to be desired.

Michelle Wie Disqualified for Scorecard Gaffe

I would like to know what is magic about this arbitrary line that was crossed. If she would have stepped outside the tent to fart would that have been okay??? I guess she would just have to gas the vols or be DQ'd

Barry Bonds offers to play for free.

If my team was 0 and 80 with a slugging % of 0 I still wouldn't consider having B.B. on my team. And anybody that don't believe he took steriods has their head in the sand. All the proof I need is in the photo albums and the stat books. You don't get older and improve. Take my word for it.

Carl Edwards Heavily Penalized For Cheating, But Doesn't Have To Forfeit Vegas Win.

I suppose we all have our preferences. I long for the days of " Run what you brung" Back then the manufactures did most of the cheating. You had to have a minimum number of cars on the dealers floor before he could race a paticular model of car. No problem just fudge the paper work a little and away you go. The extra lap or two of fuel hidden in the 2" diameter fuel transfer line that did any number of loops and bends between the fuel tank and the engine compartment. Everybody knew the tricks and everybody used them. As for the number of drivers who can win. Granted there are more. But now it's the 2 or 3 OWNERS who have a chance to win. Hendrix,Roush,Childress. The rest will notch a win or two during the season but that's about it. Give me the good old days and boys. Tell Winston they are more than welcome to come back.

Giants Win Superbowl!

My play or lack of a play was the dropped interception by Samuel during that last two minutes. He makes the INT and the game is over. The second play was the Manning escape from the three Pats defensive players. If another defender would have come in and laid a hit on him while he was in their grasp he would have gotten an unnecessary roughness penalty. Thats my perspective. All of that didn't happen so congrats to the Giants.

The Meat In An Ineptitude Sandwich

Don't forget the team playing in the bluegrass was recruited by Tubby. Don't knock the present coach until he has a team recruited by him. Something tells me Tubby saw this team coming and knew when to bail out.

Motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel dead at 69

If Evel had a modern motorcycle with the good suspension systems he could have jumped over the moon, or at least gave it a good try. See ya Evel. I'll miss you.

The old left-hander, rounding third and heading for home.

I saw Joe pitch a couple of times at the old Crosley Field in Cincinnati and listened to any number of games on radio when he was partnered with Marty Brenaman. See ya Joe. I'll miss you.
