Where Will Dale Earnhardt Jr Fans Go Now?

Whether it's Rocky Balboa rising from the canvas to deliver the knockout blow, Curt Schilling delivering strikeout pitches while his foot oozes blood or Willis Reed hobbling onto the court to play in the NBA finals, fans love the tough guy. In literary conflict, it's akin to  "man versus himself." Now, not only is the competitor battling an opponent, he or she is waging battle with an impaired body. An injured warrior's triumph is the stuff of legend. With that said, let's gain a little p ...
