Tiger Woods Is A God

Monday, June 16th, 2008

End of message.

If you didn’t see the final round of the U.S. Open, you missed one of the most clutch putts in the history of the PGA. Woods, down by one, nailed a 12-foot birdie putt to tie Rocco Mediate and force an 18-hole playoff later today.
The moment of the day? Mediate, after [...]

Scott Dixon Wins The Indianapolis 500

Monday, May 26th, 2008

Congratulations to Scott and his wife Emma. Yummy!

INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—Teammates Tony Kanaan and Marco Andretti tangled on the track, perhaps costing Kanaan a chance to win. Danica Patrick—all 100 pounds of her—went looking for a fight before cooler heads prevailed.
Scott Dixon took the victory, but the walls at Indianapolis Motor Speedway claimed plenty of trophies [...]

Turn Left, Finish Last

Monday, May 12th, 2008

That pretty much sums up my Fantasy NASCAR team’s philosophy this season. While I did swimmingly in last year’s league, this year, I stink on ice. Or is it asphalt?
I haven’t posted the standings in a few weeks, but there have been recent moves on the leader board. Rachel lost her top spot this week [...]

Danica Patrick Wins Her First IndyCar Race

Monday, April 21st, 2008

And, of course, some tools are tinkling in her corn flakes . . .

Danica Patrick’s first IndyCar win in the Japan 300 was more a triumph in public relations than auto racing.
It didn’t happen as the result of a final lap, wheel-to-wheel battle, one that many close observers of the sport feel she will never [...]

Danica Patrick’s Weight Problem

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

Maybe stories like these are why the IRL is losing audiences (and drivers) to NASCAR:

An Indy Racing League rule change has Danica Patrick feeling as if she’ll be penalized for being petite – which the popular driver said wouldn’t happen in other sports.
Starting this season, the minimum weight for IRL cars will include the driver, [...]

A Hairy Situation For Tony Stewart

Monday, March 24th, 2008

I found this little nugget after checking out where my drivers finished this week. That is, before I realized that they were off for Easter. D’oh! Anyway, be forewarned; this story will make you cringe.

Smoke fans — of which I am one — have a bit of a treat coming up later [...]

And Now, NASCAR Shenanigans

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

Maybe the NASCAR rules Nazis are also registered Democrats?

OK, so let’s get this straight: Carl Edwards keeps his victory in Sunday’s UAW-Dodge 400, but when the Chase for the Sprint Cup rolls around he won’t get credit for that win?
This makes no sense.
Is it a win or isn’t it?
On a day that witnessed the resolution [...]

Ryan Newman Wins The Daytona 500

Sunday, February 17th, 2008

Hello, Newman!

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (Ticker) – Ryan Newman nipped Kurt Busch to win Sunday’s 50th running of NASCAR’s Daytona 500. (H/T – Yahoo!)
Although two of my three faves (Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson) did terribly, and my Fantasy Team got its tail kicked, I have to admit this was a pretty exciting race from [...]

Today Is Race Day

Sunday, February 17th, 2008

Leave a message, and I’ll get back to you.
In the Earp household, the Daytona 500 is bigger than the Super Bowl – probably because every driver has a shot, instead of the Super Bowl, where the Eagles rarely do.
So, since I will be distracted until about 7pm, and enjoying Kevin’s first-ever race, I wanted to [...]

Tony Stewart Punches Kurt Busch

Saturday, February 9th, 2008

Tony Stewart’s shenanigans are really getting tired.
As I sit here ready to watch NASCAR’s Budweiser Shootout, it’s warms the heart to know that Tony Stewart is still the biggest asshat in the sport.

Despite the great pains taken by NASCAR officials to keep confidential what happened during Friday night’s closed-door meeting between Tony Stewart and Kurt [...]
