Tim Russert: 1950-2008

RIP to a TV news icon.

I was watching the US Open on NBC and was stunned as I watched Tom Brokaw announce it on air.

Stunned and saddened.

Teh Awesome- Racing Edition

Kubica Freaking Mania! As a descendent of Polish immigrants on my mother's side of the family, I am needless to say a big Kubica fan. This has been coming for awhile, but to see it happen was still great. He's got a ton of talent, and while he won't be WDC this year, his time is coming.

12-year-old Emma from Oklahoma created a stir on WindTunnel. While I don't hate NASCAR, I still smiled reading about it. Fact is, many NASCAR races are too damn long (seriously, the world won't miss 100 miles at Pocono. Make 'em 400 milers).

Whom To Blame?

From last night:

I think both are to blame, to varying degrees. While I don't BELIEVE RHR had to go to the apron, Marco deserves most of the blame for coming down as hard as he did on the backstretch.

SPEED's race rap. Tough, but not unexpected, night for the CC guys.
