Twins or Tigers?

Less than a half hour from the one game playoff between the Twins and Tigers and it should be a great match up.

The Twins send Scott Baker to the mound.  Baker is a 15 game winner this season.  The Tigers counter with Rick Porcello a rookie 14 game winner. 

The difference?  Twins are at home, and they are good in the Dome in the post season.  Take the Twins.  Score 5-3.

Wilkerson Crash Demonstrates Safety of Funny Cars

Daniel Wilkerson's horrific crash on Monday at The NHRA Mid South Nationals in Memphis shows how far we have come in making NHRA Top Fuel Dragsters and Funny Cars as safe as they can be.

Wilkerson hit the wall head on after crossing into opponent Ron Capps' lane destroying his car, but getting out of the car once it stopped and barely having a scratch or bruise.  The fact is these cars are about as safe as they can be for a car traveling over 300mph in the span of about 4 seconds.  The car took the brunt of the crash leaving the driver protected and unharmed.

Improvements made since the crash of Eric Medlen are working, and data from this crash I'm sure will be studied and analyzed so any possible changes can be made and shared with the other racers and teams.

Kindle Free Pick of the Week: The Templar Legacy

 

 

Get it while it's free.  This is my first weekly installment on what you can get that is free from your Amazon Kindle.  This was Steve Berry's  third novel when it was released in 2006.

Trying to capialize of the popularity of books like The Da Vinci Code, this thriller takes place throughout Europe and involves the religious order The Knights of Templar, which an ex-U.S. Dept. of Justice official named Cotton Malone is introduced to.  Malone is on a quest to find the archives of Templar and all hell breaks loose on his journey. 

The thriller has lots of twists and turns, food for thought and religious conspiracies.  What more could you ask for in a free kindle selection.

The Templar Legacy is currently #2 in the Kindle Store, mainly because it's free.  Get it!

School Officials want Bowden out After 2009

Off to their worst start since Coach Bobby Bowden's first year in 1976, Florida State appears ready to move on without Bowden after 2009.

The Seminoles are 2-3 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.  In the conference they are 0-2 with a game against ranked Georgia Tech this coming weekend.  Jimbo Fisher, the offensive coordinator and coach in waiting might or might not take over.

Bowden has three fewer wins than Joe Paterno on the all time wins list.  He commented Saturday that he has no plans to retire.  Among the higher ups frustrated with Bowden and Fisher are the Board of Trustees.

The Trustees themselves cannot hire or fire coaches, but they have significant influence over the school president.
