After NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield tested positive on May 9 for a banned substance, there’s been a swirling undercurrent of rumor and whispers, all of which has been significantly spurred along by Mayfield’s repeated insistence that it was due to over-the-counter medication. Hell, he even sued to get back on the track, even while doctors […]

NASCAR Crewman Gives Winnings To Injured Boy

This is a rather unique post: it’s a bit of a tear-jerker, but at the same time, it’s gross. It’s really gross. Like, if you’re about to eat or have eaten recently, just go here for a while. We’ll understand. If you’re ready to press on, then… buckle up.

Speed Read: Braves Get Their Man (& Ditch One)

Credit the Atlanta Braves for knowing how to manage a news cycle. They flipped three prospects to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Nate McLouth to answer the need for outfield help (which they failed to answer correctly the first time by not signing Adam Dunn in the offseason), and called up Tommy Hanson (pitching phenom) and […]

Throughout her career as an Indy car driver Danica Patrick has picked up quite a few endorsements for somebody who has only won one race in a sport that not too many people care about. In fact, I’m guessing she’s better known for her commercials than she is as a driver due to the nature […]

Woe upon anybody who turned on “NFL Live” on ESPN yesterday, as the Worldwide Leader had fantastic news for everybody: Tom Brady’s knee is doing great!

Martini Billboard Proves Too Distracting To Racers

You would think Formula One racers would be used to images of beautiful women. I mean, a bunch of drivers are already dating some very delectable dames, such as Lewis Hamilton & Nicole Scherzinger and Jenson Button & Jessica Michibata.

But I guess it’s one thing to witness such beauty in person, and another thing to […]

Vitor Meira Blowing Up At Indy 500 - Quite Literally

It’s understandable if you spent the Indianapolis 500 cheering for Helio Castroneves or leering at Danica Patrick. The former overcame significant personal obstacles to win the race and the latter ended up with the highest finish ever by a woman (and got frisky with a stripper).
