Little 'E' saga..

Here is a question for the LOHD readers, which team will Dale Jr. end up racing for next season now that at the end of 07 his run with DEI is over?

-Joe Gibbs Racing
-Richard Childress Racing, where the elder Earnhardt won six of his seven championships and drive the 3 car
-Hendrick Motorsports
-Ginn Racing
-Or expand the team he owns, JRM Racing

And this will be the downfall of Teresa Earnhardt. Would not give the heir to the company a 51 percent stake....

Barbecue or Barbeque

Leftoverhotdog loyalists:

As some of you know, I travel around the state a lot with my job. Each time my trip coincides with lunch I try to eat barbecue wherever I am. I need some new places to eat. I don't want to know "the Piggly Wiggly in Newberry has barbeque next to the butter." What I want to know is, what are your top 5 favorite barbeque places in South Carolina and why. Shealy's, Sweatman's, Maurice's ...

Good God, the capital of Alabama

All because Nick Saten is now the big man on campus. Just think about when they play UT and LSU this year. Could get pretty ugly if Alabama falls short of there high expectations.

Back it up...

College basketball players might want to start practicing longer shots.

The men's basketball rules committee approved a measure last week that would move the 3-point line back one foot in 2008 -- from 19 feet, 9 inches to 20 feet, 9 inches. If approved by the playing rules oversight committee on May 25, it would mark the first major alteration to the 3-point shot since its adoption in 1986-87. The move comes after more than a decade of debate about whether to extend the line.

NCAA feels it's necessary to help create more space between perimeter and post players, and it could help the rules committee eliminate some of the more physical play -- something it has tried to reduce over the past several years.

Thoughts? Me - I think it is needed and should help the game out. Always a fan of spreading the court to allow for more slashing to the basket or back door cuts but also like a long range bomb. Plus it will help the players when they leave early to go to the NBA.
