Hurrah for the Upstarts!

My man, Bad Brad Keselowski, outwitted Kyle Busch to take the flag at Talladega! Yes! As Kyle Petty said, Brad outdrove and outsmarted the competition. Brad's talking like a pro on camera, and it's fun to watch him make his name. Bet Hendrick wishes he could have kept him in the stable back when Brad was running for Junior Motorsports in the Nationwide series.

Talking about upstarts, Young Adult books are definitely taking over from adult fiction as my fav reads. I'm starting BOY 21 by Matthew Quick, written in an athentic, low key style that sneaks in stellar writing like "The liquor on his breath was dank and smelled sharp as a razor." Ostensibly, it's a basketball story, but of course, it's much more. Good book.
