This Week in Sports

Things I liked:

Things I didn't like:
Things that surprised me:
  • Kyle Busch was unable to race this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway for wrecking Rob Hornaday in the World Truck Series on Friday. He was also fined and put on probation for the rest of the year. Ron Hornaday said if Kyle Busch was not parked for the rest of the season, he (Ron) would buy a Cup car and take care of it himself. Kyle Busch has been parked for truck racing, but not Nascar. Ron Hornaday has bought a Cup car and entered it into this coming Sunday's race. This is not over. Hopefully no one gets killed.

(This is the same kind of crash that killed Dale Earnhardt.)

Things that disgusted and infuriated me:
  • There is a really disgusting Penn State scandal that has surfaced that indirectly involves the football team. Jerry Sandusky, a retired assistant coach at Penn State, allegedly molested 8 children from a program he started for troubled kids. Joe Paterno, the athletic director, and other high ups at the university found out about this when one of the graduate assistants working with the football team witnessed Sandusky having sex with a 10-year-old boy in the football facility showers. This was child number two, was never reported to the proper authorities and happened with at least six more children. I really hope all of those bastards go to prison.

I'm wondering if the NHL is going to be smart enough to take advantage of the NBA lock out and up their viewership/fan base this season. We'll see what happens.
