OK, I have to pick Dale Jr. for racing (not even sure if he still does). And thanks HV - Steve Nash (derp). Mike Weir for golf too (was just listening to his latest results and he was -6 or something...not sure what developed after that, but was good to hear that he was finally having a solid round).

You just reminded me of NASCAR lol. Dale Jr. is still racing I believe. Don't watch it much but I do like Carl Edwards aka the guy who does a backflip off his car when he wins a race.
