Anytime one team goes out and dominates the Sprint Cup series circuit there start to be a lot of rumblings about how exactly that team has found some kind of edge outside of the rule book. Right now the rumblings are that Kevin Harvick's no. 4 team have found a way to manipulate the tires so they retain grip as the tire performance wears off during the race. That may be true, it may not be but that is what the NASCAR Sprint Cup series garage is talking about.
NASCAR is doing its job by seizing tires after the races each week. They did seize tires of the no. 4 team (after the last two races) to have inspected by an neutral third party. NASCAR fans are use to these kinds of goings on, back in 1998 when Jeff Gordon was winning a modern day record 13 races and driving away with the points title there was much the same talk and NASCAR stepped in and had his tires inspected. Nothing ever came of that.
"I don't think everybody realizes that they've taken our tires 17 times in the last 18 months. Every time we finish first or second, our car goes back to the R&D Center with the tires we won the race on. NASCAR's doing their jobs, and everybody else is making a big deal about it, right?" Harvick's crew chief Rodney Childers told NBC's NASCAR Talk. more >>

Outspoken Christian National Football League player Benjamin Watson recently posted photos of his infant son on Facebook and remarked about how every time he thinks of his son, he's reminded of how deserving God is to receive the utmost highest praise from believers.
Watson, who is an 11-season NFL veteran and a tight end for the New Orleans Saints, commemorated his son, Judah's, second birthday by posting a collage of Judah's baby pictures on Facebook to share with his fans.
"Baby picture alert!!" Watson wrote. "It's always fun and nostalgic to look back at baby pictures on our kids' birthdays. On March 19, 2013, we were blessed with our second baby boy. We named him Judah, which means 'God be Praised.'" more >>
A 58-year-old homeless veteran traveling through Washington state with his dog called "Legacy" has reportedly alleged that a well-known Christian player from the NFL's Seattle Seahawks "belittled" him for being homeless in front of four other players and then tried to offer him $20, which he rejected.
"He (homeless veteran) told me while in Bellevue, WA, 5 well known Seattle Seahawks players walked past him. One of the Seahawks made a rude comment about him being homeless and tried to offer him a $20 bill.The money was declined and that player who claimed to be a Christian was offended. The homeless man told the wealthy Seahawks player that he would not accept money from someone who would belittle him in front of others claiming to be a Christian. Needless to say that player was embarrassed because his friends had witnessed his rude prideful behavior," explained Christian minister Eric Jason Pena in Facebook post last Sunday, which has now gone viral with more than 100,000 shares.
Pena explained in the post that the homeless veteran, who did not reveal his name, made the revelation after complaining to him in a local Starbucks about the way some Christians live. more >>
