Kurt Busch’s attempted the NASCAR Indy Double because he’s a Racer

Kurt Busch Doubles Down

Seriously, it is that simple, that is what the man said. When asked why he was compelled to do the Double, Kurt Busch replied, “I’m a racer.” I’m sold, you’re a racer, but the Double is different territory.

While most of America was getting ready for a Sunday barbecue, Kurt Busch was in an Indy Car at the Indianapolis Speedway for 500 miles of racing as a rookie in the Indianapolis 500. That was to be the start of his day.

1995 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Cover with Daniela Pestova

For some reason, February has been widely considered a wasteland in the American sports landscape. This is because most American sports fans look at February as a pause between the National Football League’s Super Bowl and Major League Baseball with a stopover in College Basketball for March Madness. But that is not the case, far from it. There is plenty of sport to go around in February for the American sports fan, even more for the worldly sports fan.

Below are 10 reasons February isn’t the sports wasteland that most seem to think it is. Because there are plenty of things for sports fans to get excited about.

IndyCar could learn something from NASCAR a.k.a Don’t finish the race under yellow!

2013 Indianapolis 500 ends under Caution

Yesterday, The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, the Indianapolis 500 ended under caution. I repeat, it ended under a yellow flag! Thus race winner Tony Kanaan followed the pace car for the final two laps to take the checkered flag. This is legal as it follows the current IndyCar rules, it’s just not good for the sport. Hello, is any one there? This is racing isn’t it?

Crashes, twisted metal & fire. Not Michael Bay, Daytona

2012 Daytona 500 Crash

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! It’s Daytona. No wait, Monday, Monday, Monday it’s Daytona. After a very long wait the NASCAR season finally got it’s first “Gentleman and Danica, start your engines!” under the lights Monday night at Daytona International Raceway.

It was wrecks, fire and delays. And it wasn’t a Michael Bay remake of Days of Thunder. It was the actual race.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted ~ Very Playable but…

Need for Speed Most Wanted Gamecube

I love my Gamecube. I simply believe that even though it’s heyday is long one, it was a great system. I still replay games on it because one of the reasons I loved it was I believe it had a great controller.

Recently, I just beat Need for Speed: Most Wanted on my Gamecube and it was fun. I’ll probably beat it again at some point, but in the mean time here is my review of the game.
