FOX easily won the ratings battle with a rain-delayed, fire-delayed Daytona 500. There's a lesson here, and I'm pretty sure it's "don't underestimate the drawing power of things blowing up."
Miraculously, there were no injuries after a bizarre incident on the 160th lap of the much-delayed Daytona 500 in which Colombian driver Juan Pablo Montoya's car fell apart at just the wrong moment: as he approached a track-drying truck, complete with jet fuel-powered turbine in the back.
ESPN/ABC announcer Bob Griese has been suspended from working this week's college football games, after saying on air that Juan Pablo Montoya was missing from NASCAR's leaderboard because he was "out having a taco". Whoo-hoo! Ten-day weekend! [SI/AP]
