Congratulations to Martin Truex Jr. for breaking the Hendrick curse. Sad news, former NASCAR chairman Bill France Jr. died Monday at home in Daytona Beach, Fla. He was 74. Late breaking hockey news, I am sad to report that my team did not win the Stanley Cup. The Anaheim Ducks won their first Stanley Cup defeating the Ottawa Senators by 6 to 2.
