Blaney avoids last-lap wreck to win regular season finale at Daytona.

I don’t normally follow NASCAR but Ryan Blaney is a local boy who has done good and the family listened to President Trump and didn’t sell their house.

Blaney avoids last-lap wreck to win regular season finale at Daytona.

Blaney, the winner in Michigan last week, heads into next week’s playoff opener at Darlington Raceway with three victories this season in his Team Penske Ford.

“Yeah, we’ve got good momentum,” Blaney said. “We’d like to make it three in a row, we’ll see.”

On Saturday night, the rising NASCAR star avoided two late multi-car wrecks during the Coke Zero Sugar 400 to capture the final race of the regular season — and the 27-year-old’s second consecutive Cup Series victory.

I’m sorry but they will always be the Cleveland Indians

I’m sorry but they will always be the Cleveland Indians. First let me say that even though the city of Cleveland is 65 miles from my home, I’ve always been a NY Yankees fan. But today I shed a tear for dear old Chief Wahoo.

The Cleveland Indians officially announced their new name on Friday.

The decision to change the name came last year amid racial tension in the U.S. as professional sports teams came under fire for having Native American monikers.

The choice of Guardians will undoubtedly be criticized by many of the club’s die-hard fans.

The organization spent most of the past year whittling down a list of potential names that was at nearly 1,200 just over a month ago. But the process quickly accelerated.

The baseball team will be known as the Guardians.

To Progressives they all look alike. Just ask Pelosi. All Willies look alike to her.

To Progressives they all look alike. Just ask Pelosi. All Willies look alike to her. Progressives are famous for two sayings. Some of my best friends are_____________________________ fill in the space. And all those folks look alike. So that’s why Nancy got Willie Mays and Willie McCovey mixed up. I’m sure this was a mistake.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tried to honor baseball legend Willie Mays for his 90th birthday Thursday but fouled out when the 81-year-old pol instead tweeted out a smiling photo of herself — with Willie McCovey.

A minority gets screwed over again. TJ Watt passed over because of black privilege?

A minority gets screwed over again. TJ Watt passed over as Defensive Player of the Year. Because of black privilege? Aaron Donald is a awesome player and odds are he’ll end up in the Hall of Fame. But TJ Watt had a hall of fame year and plain and simple fact is that he got screwed. Not a good time to be white.

Both players were deserving of the award. An All-Pro for a sixth straight year in 2020, Donald tallied 13.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, and 14 tackles for loss. Watt led the NFL with 15 sacks in 2020. He also led the NFL with 23 tackles for loss. One of the most versatile outside linebackers in football, Watt also recorded an interception while breaking up seven passes.

Whites and Latinos are minorities in the NFL. But they get no special privilege.
