I used to be a huge NASCAR fan but my interest has waned over the last few years. I never liked the Chase but I have to say this year they got me back.  I do have to say NASCAR should tweak the system as it is not right for a driver to be able to win the championship without winning a race all year.

Every time I hear humming coming from a certain quarterback’s mouth in a Nationwide Insurance commercial I hit the mute button as fast as I can.

Overrated: Cracker Barrel

Underrated: Stevie Ray Vaughn

I’m glad Heyward got traed to St Louis. There were rumors he was coming to Boston and I didn’t want to see that.

Don’t think for one second that much of anything will change if Hilary is elected President. Corporate America will still have it’s stranglehold on our country.

Speaking of that trade I’m shocked the Cards let go of Miller.

How are the Marlins going to pay Stanton $25 mill a year? They draw less than the Rays and have a lousy TV contract.

Derrick Rose is soft.

As far as I’m concerned Horse of the Year is still up for grabs.

As the NHL gets ready to induct 6 new members to their Hall of Fame I’m wondering why Eric Lindross is still on the outside looking in.

As a Red Sox fan I’m happy to hear Boston is backing off trading for Cole Hamels. I want no part of him. Why should Boston give up at least 2 of their best prospects for an over 30 pitcher who has a less than stellar record when he’s faced American League teams?

Pagano got schooled last night. Undrafted, practice squad player Jonas Gray had 100 yards and 2 td’s before Indy knew what hit them.

I think it’s time for the Democrats to elect new leadership. Reid and Pelosi need to step aside and let younger blood lead the party.

I belong to the largest religious group in this country, EX Catholic. But I have to say I love Pope Francis. I know he wants me back.

Ryan Newman is a class act.

As far as I’m concerned Bill Cosby’s reaction to recent questions over rape accusations sends out a lot of bad vibes.

Mike Evans is the real deal. Finally the Bucs have an offensive player to build around.

The Republicans aren’t even in total control of Congress yet and all I’m hearing from them is appealing the ACA which will take healthcare away from close to 10 million people, impeaching Obama, shutting down the government and running a pipeline full of black slop through the heartland of our country.

With almost a quarter of the NHL season done it doesn’t look good for the Bruins. They are getting their butt kicked by the best teams and struggling to win against the bad ones. It also appears this bunch of Canadiens have the Bruins and Rasks number.

With almost a quarter of the NHL season done it appears the Lightning are for real. Bishop is playing just as well as he did last year, Stamkos is still Stamkos but the real difference has been the third and fourth lines that are filled with youngsters from Syracuse’s AHL championship team. They are a threat to score every shift. The addition of defenseman Anton Stralman, +13, has shored up what has been the teams weakest area. Cup contenders.
