Do You Want to Sponser a Race Car?

20 Jul

For $20?

Really! Kenny Wallace drives the #28  U.S. Border Patrol Chevrolet in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. Unfortunately for Kenny, his sponsor won’t sponsor him at a foreign race! On August 30th, 2009 the Nationwide Series will be making their annual visit to the Circuit Gilles Villenuve in Montreal.

So Kenny needs a sponsor! He has decided to sell his sponsorship to the fans! For $20 you get your name on the hood of the car IN THE RACE! You will also receive an AUTOGRAPHED photo of the car from Kenny after the race! It is an amazing opportunity!!!

Check out KennyWallace.com or click HERE to go straight to the donation page!

I put my name on the car already and I think you should too! The last Facebook update said they were 90% of the way there! Wouldn’t it be awesome to say you sponsored a winning NASCAR race car??

Congratulations Orlando Magic!!!

31 May

Your 2009 Eastern Conference Champions!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would like to apologize to the fans in Cleveland for having some of the worst sports teams ever. However, they at least don’t have to drive hours to see NFL games like we do in Orlando.

GO MAGIC!!

18 May

I would like to take this oppurtunity to congratulate the Orlando Magic on their big game 7 win last night! They knocked off the defending NBA champions!

Next up is Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. I’m sure the NBA would LOVE to see Lebron vs Kobe in the finals (since that is what they already have built their ad campaign around) but hopefully the Magic can upset the apple cart a little!!!

GO MAGIC!!!

For those of you not obsessed with football and the Miami Dolphins, you may have missed that last week Stephen Ross (new owner of the Miami Dolphins and Dolphin Stadium) announced a stadium naming deal. Dolphin Stadium is now Land Shark Stadium.

Horrible News

17 Apr

After yesterday’s post of exuberance and joy, today brings us back to Earth and her cold realities. I didn’t think it could happen, but I guess he just couldn’t live without Brett Favre.

Yes, John Madden has announced his retirement.

But all kidding aside, John Madden is a legend and will be missed. And to Deana, tomorrow will be a cooking blog and it was yummy…

The party is over! Check out another new one past the break:

Formula 1 2009!

21 Feb

I am a pretty big sports fan. My favorite sport is football, GO DOLPHINS! But I also enjoy racing a lot. My dad’s watching of NASCAR got me hooked and we have gone to multiple races in Daytona and one in Atlanta.

As you know NASCAR races are normally on ovals and go around in circles. While I don’t find this boring, I know many people do. I enjoy road courses even more, but NASCAR’s Sprint Cup only visits two road courses a year.

Formula 1 is ALL road courses! This makes up for the fact that 99% of the races are shown in the US between 3 and 5 in the morning (thank God for DVR’s). This past off-season has seen some of the largest rule changes in the history of F1. More changes are coming for 2010 due to the economy’s impact on racing. F1 is expensive and requires huge budget sponsors in order for a team to compete.

Explaining these changes to even a seasoned fan is difficult, not to mention explaining it to people who don’t watch any racing, like many of my readers. However, I found this awesome video from Red Bull Racing not to be confused with their sister team Scuderia Toro Rosso (Team Red Bull in Italian). This video shows off their new car and uses some great animation to show the changes from last year to this year. Check it out!

Super Bowl Sunday!!!

1 Feb

It is one of my favorite days of the year!! Super Bowl Sunday!!!!!! I hope everyone enjoys the game and commercials!!

I work today until 6pm and then will be rushing off to a friend’s house for some Super Bowl watching! This year’s commercials intrigue me since we will have a 1 second commercial and a 90+ second 3D commercial. Speaking of, do you have your 3D glasses? I hope you do, cause otherwise you will go blind. Or not.
