Kurt Busch Wins The Budweiser Shootout

The first event of the 2011 NASCAR season saw a driver actually disqualified for making an illegal pass and another driver was credited with the win. Denny Hamlin crossed the finish line first but since he passed Kurt Busch below the yellow line he was black flagged and Busch was named the winner as Hamlin finished in 12th.
It was the first event at Daytona International Speedway following the repaving of the surface and the cars on the track were moving at incredibly fast speeds, some even hit 206 mph. Cars were spread out around the track in packs of two, a major difference than the huge packs we've seen at the plate tracks before.
Check out the highlights from the 2011 Bud Shootout.

Blake Griffin Better Get Out Of J.J. Hickson's House

We all know that the Cleveland Cavaliers finally ended their 26 game losing streak to the Los Angeles Clippers last night in overtime. We also know that this blog has been in awe of Blake Griffin this season (just put his name in the search bar to the right). But I hope he knows to never go to J.J. Hickson's house again as Hickson did what so many have been unable to do and stop a Griffin dunk. To the videotape.
