  1. This is a good thing for the sport. We have someone in Pitbull; widely known and can help extend NASCAR's reach into new, and unfamiliar markets. Plus, their charter wasn't theirs to own. They were leasing it from Spire; who promptly sold it and the one they held onto to Kaulig. I believe that he'll keep Chastain and now Suarez's 2022 plans were a bit murky because they would have to get their hands on another charter; but now his is crystal clear.
  2. I think Brad previously discussed about being an owner in the Cup series, and this is honestly the best opportunity he could ask for. Roush is a ghost of it's former glory, but still is a good, solid organization; and has decades of foundation built to stand on. Jack still has deep pockets and basically, probably, wrote Brad a blank check to be apart of his team.
  3. Brad Keselowski to accept the role of Owner/Driver with Roush in 2022. This probably means Cindric goes directly to the 2, and hopefully Matt DiBenedetto gets to stay with the Wood Brothers and the 21.
  4. Ottawa apologizes. But, to get back on track; my Cup prediction is Montreal and Tampa Bay.
  5. It's almost as if Edmonton has McDavid and Draisaitl and nothing else.
  6. Ask, and you shall receive. And to think, I was expecting this series to go the distance...what a naive fool I was. I stand by the fact that I think Washington is the ultimate "regular season" team. They'll win almost all the games that don't "matter", but lose all the games that do.
  7. The more I think about it, the more I'm thinking that the Capitals winning the Stanley Cup in 2018 was the worst thing that could've possibly happened to this team. Their hunger is gone, the competitive fire has long since burnt itself out. They've gotten fat and complacent. Maybe it was for the best they let Trotz go as this once mighty ship sunk into the Potomac. They can't take away the ring, the excitement the fan base had over that magical summer. Ovechkin's legacy was sealed as probably the greatest goal scorer of his generation. But when push came to shove; this team decided to roll over and die. Getting tactically spanked by the Islanders in Toronto last year. This charade with Boston, and letting their emotions get the best of them. Getting humiliated by the Hurricanes and their old friend, Game 7 trying to defend the Cup. Now, I'd still rather have Laviolette over the bumbling Todd Reirden any day of the week, but Washington needs a man behind the bench who can somehow find a way to stoke the flames and get the competitive fire burning back inside each and every player. The window is pretty much shut on this team, but it's foolish to say it's completely shut because momentum can change on a dime, this team could suddenly pull another deep playoff run out of their rear end, but with how the team is playing... This window is going to slam shut. And it's going to end not with a bang, but a whimper.
  8. Bo Bichette joined Joe DiMaggio with 14 multi extra base hits in his first 87 games. He's going to continue to be a special player. There's so much talent for the Jays; the sky's the limit. (But, I think this year will involve more growing pains as they continue to grow as a team. I think their window starts to open next year in 2022.)
  9. The Jets change quarterbacks like I change pants. This team will forever be the butt of the joke. Unlike their fellow brothers in misery in Cleveland, who has a bright future; the Jets have no future. I know Darnold isn't the best, but they threw him to the wolves. He had no offensive line, no one could catch a cold on that team, his confidence got shot to pieces and they're surprised he was regressing? Gee, I wonder why. You never gave him the chance.
  10. Martinsville and dirt would not mix. The track's just too flat. At least with Bristol you have their steep banking. And, I don't know if this was discussed but apparently giving the All-Star race to Texas is/was a peace offering to Gossage for losing a date and having to share space with CotA.
  11. Techinically, he was sponsored by HendrickCars . com, but yeah. He might as well have run this race with an unsponsored race car. I guess companies still want to wait and see with Kyle to see he truly turned over a new leaf. These things happen to armost everyone. But it's how you rehabilitate your image that really matters. Are you really sorry that it happened? Or, just really sorry you got caught? I hope for his sake; it's the former.
  12. AJ wins at Las Vegas and punches his ticket into the Xfinity playoffs. After having all 3 start in the Top 10, all 3 Kaulig cars came home with Top 10s. Sure, Gibbs and Penske are giants of the circuit; but this Jason has potentially 3 rocks in his slingshot. He's got one ready to wind up and fire. Just needs two more.
  13. While Arizona isn't ready to win right now; they're still a team with potential. They're not as strong as Green Bay, or Buffalo, or had a brotherly influence like Pittsburgh, but they were no slouch.
  14. I still agree with your sentiment that the Jets can become the king if they draft and develop smart. Because it seems right now like the Giants are like a car on the side of the road with a flat tire, or multiple flats. It's not within reach right now, but can easily be within a few years.
  15. *coughNew Jerseycough* But, if you can rebuild the Jets (remember, there's nowhere to go but up), and with how pedestrian the Giants are; the crown is ripe for the picking.
  16. Well, AJ certainly had an eventful weekend. Cindric and he got way too aggressive just for stage points and it completely derailed his chances. Then in the Cup race, he has a pit road problem and swamped him back in the pack. But, unlike the Xfinity race, he salvaged a Top 10.
  17. I didn't really pay much attention to the race after the wreck and the start of the rain delay that I actually realized that they went back to racing. Considering the checkered flag fell a little past midnight on the East Coast, that makes sense. The Top 3 winless droughts to start a career have all been snapped at the Daytona 500 (Michael Waltrip, Michael McDowell and Sterling Marlin). Next week, ROVAL; Daytona Style.
  18. The Knights set looks real nice and clean. Very heavy Detroit Tigers looking, but that's a minor nitpick. Also, got a little bit of Auburn University in there. Like you put the Detroit Tigers and Auburn in a blender. Echoing the sentiment; great to see this series back.
  19. Toronto is going to be stacked in the lineup this year. Vlad Jr., Bichette, Biggio, Teoscar, and adding Springer and Siemien. They also added to the bullpen with Kirby Yates. I feel like it's going to take a year for the team to gel together, but adding to shore up the back end of the rotation, and making sure they don't grind Ryu into dust; 2022 is shaping up to be a year that may have Toronto kicking down the door in the AL. Their starting lineup is strong enough to keep them in a lot of games this year. It's just can the pitchers pick up the slack if the lineup has an off day; and vice versa.
  20. That's the closest we've ever gotten to a home team/home stadium Super Bowl.
  21. It took 55 years, but a team is going to be playing, in essence, a defacto home game for the Lombardi Trophy. And of course, Tom Brady has to be in, yet another Super Bowl. Joins Craig Morton as the only QBs to play in the Super Bowl for both the NFC and the AFC. Patrick and Josh, you're our last hope!
  22. Tom Brady has to be part cockroach. Dude just cannot die.
  23. Stafford was given basically no chance to succeed in Detroit. He had Megatron. His next best option? Brandon Pettigrew. After that? A regular Rogue's Gallery. A porous defense, shoddy offensive line, and subpar receivers outside of two players? You're basically doomed if you're a QB in that situation.
  24. Patricia was doomed to fail. He was sent to Detroit; aka NFL Siberia (sorry Cleveland, Detroit has been miserable far longer). Not to mention, the whole "Belichick disciples are notoriously awful head coaches" shtick, and you have a recipe for failure. He tried to copy the formula for success that New England had, completely forgetting that it was in large part because of a generational QB and head coach combination, the likes of the which the league had seen maybe once, or twice before. When you try to copy something, you often get watered down imitations. See Houston (under O'Brien), Detroit (under Patricia), Denver (under McDaniels), Kansas City and Cleveland (under Crennel).
  25. Craig Morton was the first. Dallas (to get to Super Bowl V), and Denver (to get to Super Bowl XII).
