Now it’s time for Carl Edwards to find out why failure is staring him in the windshield.  DUDE HAS A BROKEN FOOTNASCAR injuries are rare. Breaking the foot you use to slam the pedal to the metal is even rarer. Breaking that foot while tossing around a Frisbee is not only rare and awkward, but a deal breaker.

CARL EDWARDS CONFUSES AMERICA’S YOUTH

I thought this was a curious quote from Sports Illustrated's recent Kickin' It With Carl feature. A student from Alabama wrote a letter asking Edwards if he should leave college to pursue his dream of becoming a driver or mechanic. Edwards' answer started thoughtful and then veered completely sideways. Edwards' response:"That letter could have come from me in 1998 or 1999. I know exactly how you feel. The reality is, though, unless you have a contract in front of you where somebody says ...

And the more subtle -- though Cena denies steroid use, he did gain fame and fortune in a drug-addled culture, a potential black eye from which NASCAR has aggressively distanced itself. And while I understand that Disney and ESPN are brilliant marketers and that having Cena a ...
