food city 500 and a little green

on sunday jeff burton blew past denny hamlin and won the food city 500. hamlin got passed like he was standing still - well figuratively. this after kevin harvick and tony stewart bumped into each other causing stewart to spin out. i think harvick kinda slid into him.

yesterday was st. patricks day. the one day of the year where people can drink green beer and wear green. there was celtic music played on bourbon street at the mall to celebrate the day. a good day to be irish, even if youre not.

a chilly beginning to march

it sure is on the chilly side today. snow was forecast within the next couple of days. got some hockey on at the moment, montreal and n ew jersey tied at 1 after two periods. thinking about the month ahead, theres the ncaa basketball tournament, more baseball - boston and oakland start their season in japan on the 25th, more car races and the playoff drive in hockey and the nba. hopefully these events warm up march. some big puddles already and more to pop up.
