NASCAR NATION: Martinsville is a Day Late and a Dollar Short for Some - 03/29/10 08:11 PM
Martinsville ended up being a day late and a dollar short for some of NASCAR's Sprint Cup drivers. Since yesterday's race was rained out, the drivers were able to race under cloudy but dry skies today. I had to work but was only able to fend off my curiosity for the first half of the race. I was listening to the live broadcast when the excitement got to be just too much. Off went the computer and on went the TV. I'm glad I decided to watch, too. Jeff Gordon (#24) seemed to be doing well towards the beginning of the (8 comments)

Did They Really Say That? - 03/26/10 10:17 AM
Feeling stupid? You'll feel much more intelligent after reading these quotes from some famous "Einsteins" below: Question: "If you could live forever, would you and why?"Answer: "I would not live forever because we should not live forever because, if we were supposed to live forever, then we would live forever. But, we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever."- Miss Alabama in the 1994 Miss USA contest (this Einstein went on to become Miss America 1995) "Whenever I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can't help but cry.

NASCAR Nation: Battle at Bristol 500 - 03/24/10 09:14 AM
Sorry for the delay in writing this. I have been unapologetically busy as of late (I'm not complaining, believe me!). I always make time to stop down and watch the NASCAR Sprint Cup races. The battle at Bristol 500 was no different. With rain threatening to overtake the track at anytime, the first short track race of the season brought on some great racing. Early on, Kurt Busch's blue deuce had a strong showing, as did Jimmie Johnson's #48 and Greg Biffle's #16. The lead changed hands almost two dozen times throughout the race as well. Luckily, the rain that was (3 comments)

In honor of the day, I wanted to share an Irish Blessing for my friends on St. Patrick's Day.

NASCAR NATION: Hot Tempers at Hot-Lanta - 03/08/10 08:12 AM
Sorry, NASCAR Nation. I've been gone for a couple weeks. Tons of stuff that's been going on in my personal and professional life that has kept me busy and away from social media. But I'm back. I haven't been missing my NASCAR (heaven forbid). However, I have been unable to keep up with my NASCAR blogging. That is being remedied right now! There were some hot tempers at Hot-Lanta this weekend. Between the tire issues that befell many drivers, the huge wreck that happened late in the race, super-duper fast speeds (sometimes in excess of 190mph) and the more bumpin' than (18 comments)
