red sox world champions

the red sox are world champions with a 4-3 win and a four game sweep. a very good and well pitched game by both starters. jon lester got the win and jonathan papelbon gets the save. mike lowell won the mvp award and got a chevy malibu as a result. so another season done, and next game is spring 2008.

jimmie johnson wins his second straight race in a green-white checker finish that ended after jamie mcmurray and dale earnhard jr got together and crashed. jeff gordon finished 7th, and his lead on johnson is now 14 pts. with 3 races left its beginning to look like a two driver finish. but things can happen in the three races.

jimmie johnson won this one. sadly the tape wouldnt go so i couldnt watch it (i think the tape is dead). from what i read it was a rough race. jeff gordon finished 3rd and still leads the points by 53. 4 races left and i think it will come to the last race.

what a finish! after restarting with five to go afrer a red flag, ryan newman takes the lead from jeff gordon and as hes pulling away, he crashes, setting up a green white checkered finish. jeff gordon and kyle busch think theyre out of gas. jemmie johnson in the meantine comes in to get gas. then the race gets restarted and jeff gordon hangs on (i have no idea how) and wins in charlotte. he leads jimmie johnson by 73 points. if the remainder of the season is like tonight, this will be a helluva finish to the season.
