And Another Thing


The Daytona Blob

Just a heads-up to the Blobophiles that I'll be periodically weighing in on Daytona 500 as it goes off this afternoon.

A few early takes:

* The Big One is coming. Actually, I foresee several Big Ones today.

* I picked Kevin Harvick in the dinosaur editions this morning, mainly because I had to pick someone and Harvick always seems to be around at the end in these things. He's starting 13th, which might as well be the front row in a plate race.

* Speaking of the Big One(s), I'd bet everything I own on a a green-white-checker finish today. Probably three of them. Also, probably, it will take 30 minutes to run the last 10 last laps because there'll be at least two mini-Big Ones in that span. At least.

All for now.
