Graduate of N.C. State University with an English degree. Lifelong fan of the Wolfpack and the ACC as a whole (even football). My favorite sports are baseball and football, but I have an appreciation for all sports and a thorough understanding of most.

I worked for the News & Observer in Raleigh, NC for two years and often covered ACC football, basketball and baseball along with the Hurricanes, Railhawks and minor league baseball.

    You're welcome, Cory! And sorry for the late response, by the way.

    I don't know where the conflict with the stats is either, but releases a "stats advance" prior to each race, which is what I've been double-checking your numbers against. It's interesting that the numbers/ratings would match but that the order of drivers sometimes does not.

    Last friday, my friend Steve Brown was diagnosed with Leukemia and just started his treatment this week. Steve is a senior at James Caldwell High School and was set to play football for Lehigh University in the fall. Today, cancer survivor and Giants Linebacker, Mark Herzlich called Steve, to give him some words to help him get through this tough time. Being a cancer survivor himself, Herzlich's words impacted Steve in a tremendous way.

    Steve, who has been a longtime Giants fan tweeted this today after his call from Herzlich

    RT @steve_brown31: Sucha sick surprise to get a call from Mark Herzlich on my cell.. Someone who continues to thrive after beating cancer #cancerissoft

    Herzlich's and Steve's story deserves to be shared and it would also benefit my friend, Steve, if people heard about his story. I can be reached at my email if you have any questions regarding this story.

    Good thing you wont be picking any of Bostons players for them in the upcoming NBA draft your projections were laughable at best . Just incase you forgot the Celtics allready have there point guard of the future , his name is Rajon Rondo and Danny Ainge has no intentions of trading him now or anytime soon. My advise to you is to stick to things you know about because its painfully obvious you know next to nothing about who the Celtics have and what they need moving forward.

    I'm glad you felt that way. It's always a risk as an editor when you try and guess whether or not a stylistic edit will match an author's voice, so I appreciate the vote of confidence. Keep up the solid work, bro!
