budweiser shootout

kevin harvick won after a crazy end to a great race. this one went into overdrive and out of nowhere harvick moves to second, passes jamie mcmurray to take the lead and afterward a mass wreck ensued behind them. tony stewart avoided it to finish third. daytona 500 a week from tomorrow. great way to start wpeedweeks in daytona.

cracker cats news

its official. the oilers bought the team from dan orlich. dont know the cost. i think now there is some optimism for the team now. orlich was not a goood owner. he never had the teams interest in mind, and it seemed no one wanted to work for him. hopefully now there will be some baseball minded people in the front office and out promoting the team. and hopefully more people at the ball park.
