    About damn time.

    And now the whining from stick-and-ballers begins ...

    Hopefully, Skeet Reese or Kevin VanDam might be in the running for next year.

    They are out in force on my web-site.

    I love the argument, "I drive a car, how is that a sport?"

    Yeah, well, I run, but Usain Bolt is safe.

    Anyone driving near me can consider it a contact sport...does that count?

    Yeah, great argument

    Do you play rec-league softball? Yes? Oh, I guess that isn't a sport.
    Do you shoot hoops at the playground? Yes? Oh, that isn't a sport.
    Do you ride a bike? Yes? Oh, I guess Lance Armstrong isn't a real athlete then.

    It's an outrage. Where is Tiger Woods?

    Tiger didn't deserve it this year. No majors.

    An outrage is National Speed Sport News naming Kyle Busch its "Economaki Champion of Champions" (its driver of the year award) essentially on the strength of his Nationwide title. Nice of them to list Johnson as "also considered."
