Bristol (And Yet Another Anniversary)

It's my Blogiversary! A year ago today, I started this blog with a letter. It was "written" by Lexie the Husky to a dead raccoon. Complete with pictures. Sorry, raccoon lovers. What a way to introduce myself to the internet, huh?

No to Nascar? Yes to jewelry? Angie's talking about rings over at her pretty purse today. Check it out!

The good thing about the race at Bristol Saturday night was that 168,000 fans set a new record for doing the wave. the bad thing about Bristol was Elliott Sadler's performance. He had a few things go wrong during the race. He had a bad pit stop due to the positioning of his pit stall, then he had to pit because of a loose seatbelt, and then he exited pit road too fast and had to do a pass through penalty. He started 10th, finished 32nd, and remains unchanged in points at 20th.

I know a lot of people think that bump and run racing is just good hard racing but when you're going for the win, it's not right. Boo Carl Edwards. He's doing a good job of making a lot of enemies these days.

Carl Edwards gets the win, Sterling Marlin gets the red lantern, and we're in California next Sunday.
