After 21 years in the major leagues Randy Johnson earned his 300th win, beating the pathetic Nationals 5-1. Johnson celebrated by hugging his son, his teammates and his manager, knifing a drifter (would it shock you if this was true?

You, our faithful readers, have been clamoring for more, or rather any NASCAR coverage and the Career Sgt is here to give it to you. For those of you not in the “know”, NASCAR is America’s #1 spectator sport. It provides a wholesome brand of family entertainment, that is particularly popular in the South. Admittedly, calling it a Sport is questionable. All you have to do is look at some of the drivers and it begins to look closer to bowling than a real sport.
