The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, better known by its acronym (NASCAR), is the preeminent governing body of stock-car racing in the United States. The cars are "stock cars," meaning they have the same body frame and style, and can only be modified according to strict standards. NASCAR hosts thousands of racing events across North America, and even hosts events overseas, such as in Japan and Australia. Racers in NASCAR compete in a series of races to gain points based on how they place. The most important series for a racer are the Sprint Cup (formerly the Winston Cup), the Nationwide Series, and/or the Camping World Truck Series for racing trucks. On a smaller level, NASCAR supervises NASCAR Local Racing, as well as the Whelen Modified and All-American Tours.
NASCAR emphasizes its traditions, and is proud to be a family-owned business. The current CEO, Brian France, is the grandson of NASCAR's founder, Bill France, Sr. Since NASCAR got its start with moonshiners evading revenue police in the mountains of North Carolina, NASCAR racing teams are still based there, primarily around Charlotte, the biggest city in NC and not far from the mountains. NASCAR itself is headquartered in Daytona Beach, Florida, but it maintains four offices around the Charlotte area, along with international offices in Toronto and Mexico City.
The NASCAR Nationwide Series was formerly known as the Busch Grand National Series. The series began in 1982, being sponsored by Anheuser-Busch. Nationwide Insurance replaced Busch as the sponsor of the race in 2007, and is NASCAR's official insurance provider.
The Nationwide Series is second to the Sprint Cup Series in terms of importance, but receives distinction by holding international races. However the series has fewer races than the Sprint Cup, and offers racers less prize money. The 2008 Nationwide Series champion was Clint Bower.
Recently drivers who race in the Sprint Cup have been also racing in the Nationwide Series. This poses a problem because a driver can race on a track in the Nationwide Series on Saturday, and turn around and race on the same track Sunday for the Sprint Cup. Some believe that this practice gives an unfair advantage to those Sprint Cup racers, who have earned the pejorative term of "bushwhackers," a backhanded nod to the Nationwide Series' beginnings. This has become such a problem the NASCAR officials are contemplating punishing those Sprint Cup drivers who also race in the Nationwide Series.

NFL Tickets – A Look at the Contenders in the NFC
Picking a Super Bowl contender is a tough task. It seems every NFL season brings a surprise in one way or another. You can bank on an overachiever going much further than anyone thought and you can bank on a powerhouse falling by the wayside. But just for kicks, let’s look at which NFL tickets seem likely to take you all the way to Super Bowl XLV in Dallas.
In the NFC you have like the chances of the New Orleans Saints in a repeat appearance. With Drew Brees running the highest scoring offense in the NFL, and a Lombardi Trophy on their shelf, the Saints seem to be just hitting their stride. But within the NFC South the Atlanta Falcons are drawing some looks. Matt Ryan and Michael Turner provide the points while a young and talented Falcons defense is anxious to prove themselves. Of course the NFC East will make some waves. The Dallas Cowboys are clear favorites, but with their history of playoff woes, you can’t count out the rest of the division. The Eagles are revamping under Kevin Kolb, and Eli Manning needs only a little luck to put the New York Giants on top. Out West the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals will battle for a division title. Keep your eyes locked on the NFC North where the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings may put on the best show of all. Brett Favre took the Vikings to an NFC Championship Game last season, but it’s very likely Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will erase the Favre mystique once and for all.
Our NFC Pick – New Orleans Saints vs. Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship
NFL Tickets – A Look at the Contenders in the AFC
In the AFC the New York Jets have become the favorite pick of the year as Mark Sanchez and Rex Ryan lead the charge. Outspoken, gutsy, and in your face, the Jets loaded up with more offensive weapons to go with their NFL best defense. But of course Tom Brady and the Patriots are still there, still brilliant, and still get the nod from some corners. In the AFC North the Baltimore Ravens seem to be surging, leaning more heavily on Joe Flaco and the offense, while still dealing out hits with the defense. With both the Steelers and Bengals in the division, Baltimore has their work cut out for them.
The AFC South has seen the Indianapolis Colts delivering double digit winning seasons for a decade now. While Peyton Manning makes them clear favorites, there have been some indications that either the Tennessee Titans or Houston Texans could be that overachiever we were discussing earlier. And in the AFC West the San Diego Chargers have said enough is enough. There have been too many season ending disappointments of late. Norv Turner and Philip Rivers are up against the wall. It’s time to deliver.
Our AFC Pick – Baltimore Ravens and San Diego Chargers in the AFC Championship

The Memorial is over, so the golf pros are long gone. Right?
There's two other times to see the pros tee it up in Columbus, and for my money, they're not to be missed. Sure, The Memorial is the big tournament, the sexy one, one of the
top-tier PGA Tour events. But the US Open Sectional Qualifier is a last chance to get into a major; you'll see big names.
The Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational is still the new kid on the block, and it's on the junior tour, but that's one of the things that makes it some great golf to watch.
If you've ever been to The Memorial--I go for the practice rounds, you won't catch me there during the tournament itself--you know what it's like to be jogging along with a thousand other people desperate to catch the faintest glimpse of Tiger, eternally hopeful to be one of the lucky
two dozen or so who might get an autograph that day. It's a terrific show, but even during the practice rounds, it's hard to make your way around and take in the golf, especially if you're determined to see the big names. And being The Memorial, you're virtually guaranteed to be
somewhere out along the 5th or 13th holes when the lightning warning sounds some time that week.
The day after The Memorial, though, the USGA hosts a qualifier for the US Open. This year it was 36 holes in the rain at Brookside, off SR161, and at The Lakes up by Polaris. I opted for Brookside, and wasn't disappointed.
This wasn't a bunch of amateurs and has-beens hoping for one last shot. This was, thanks to The Memorial the day before, a fairly star-studded
This was watching Tom Lehman and Davis Love III and Jose-Maria Olazabal and Chris DiMarco up close and personal. Galleries measured in the dozens at the most. There were no ropes.
Let me repeat that. There were no ropes. We straggled along behind Love, trying to will each putt into the hole. We slogged through the rain with Olazabal, whose mood and game were, sadly, as gloomy as the weather.
Oh, and the winner and one of the joint runners-up at the US Open this year, Lucas Glover and David Duval? Both came out of the Columbus qualifier. A show like that, and it's free. It's definitely worth taking that Monday off.
The show just coming up (July 27-August 2) is the new kid on the Nationwide Tour block, the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational. It hit the ground running in 2007; their first winner was the first amateur to win on the Nationwide Tour.
And the venue is not to be missed. OSU Scarlet was designed by Alister MacKenzie at about the same time he was putting together a little track in Georgia called Augusta National. It shows, especially around the greens, that he had Georgia on his mind even in central Ohio. The par-3
eighth hole, for example, is sort of an average of the twelfth and sixteenth at Augusta, although not so severely sloped. On Sunday, you better believe they stick the pin out on the bunker-fronted, card-table sized tongue of green that sticks out into the pond. Ouch.
Add in renovation by Jack Nicklaus in 2006, and you have a course that's going to force the players to show what they've really got. Like the Open qualifier, the galleries are small, but it's an actual Tour event so there are ropes. They don't get in the way. There's plenty of room to pick your spot and watch, or follow along with the player of your choice.
Unusually for a Nationwide event, the Children's Hospital Invitational invites the top collegiate players. These are the guys who will make a splash within the next few years, so it's a great opportunity to see the future before it happens.
Most important to remember is that these are the hungry players. Thes are the new blood who want their promotion to the PGA, or the guys who got a taste of the big tour and want to go back. When I went in 2007, scattered among the newcomers were former PGA Tour players like Esteban Toledo and Omar Uresti; among the who's-thats were Ricky Barnes and Chez
If you're a player like me, with a handicap measured in scientific notation, what you're going to learn by watching them is not shot-making, but decision-making. Scarlet looks fairly forgiving off the tee--looks are deceiving--but the greens are protected like Fort Knox. Watch to see
how the pros approach, especially from up close. Not many of us can bang it three hundred yards off the tee, but a sixty-yard wedge shot is within
pretty much everyone's reach.
The mundane details are straightforward. Parking is free, at the OSU lot off Ackerman and 315, and shuttle buses run from an hour before play to an hour after. If you're going for one day, it's ten bucks. A bargain, indered, for a golf fan like me.
The ATP Tennis is home to some of the most exciting sports from around the world. From the Outback of Australia to the hard courts of New York City there is always a chance to get the tennis tickets you want and be there for the live action. Great athletes and champions like Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Venus Williams and, her younger sister Serena Williams will be competing all year in an attempt to win one of the prestigious four grand slam tournaments: The Australian Open, The French Open, The Championships at Wimbledon, and the US Open. Reserve your tennis tickets today to be sure you don’t miss out on any of the action.
The first grand slam tournament of the year is the Australian Open. The Australian Open is competed at Melbourne Park during January. The traditional starting kickoff of the tennis season, the Australian Open tournament offers some of the toughest competition of the tennis season, and often times the toughest competition is the hard court surface and the intense summer heat of Australia. It’s a grueling spectacle of endurance and fierce battles on the court, making Australian Open tickets a major prize on the tennis circuit.
Next it’s off to Paris and the Stade Roland Garros, home of the French Open. The French Open, or Roland Garros to the local Parisians, is played every year during the last week of May and into early June. The surfaces of the Stade Roland Garros are clay. The clay surface is a little slower creating a disadvantage for big servers. The French Open baffled the great American player Pete Sampras, and the ATP tour’s biggest server, Andy Roddick, has never won the French Open. In recent years the exciting Spaniard Rafael Nadal has dominated the French Open.
The third grand slam tournament of the year is The Championships at Wimbledon. Wimbledon is often considered the most prestigious of all the grand slam tournaments. Wimbledon is played at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. During Wimbledon the competitors are required to wear white clothes as they compete on the grass courts making for fast and furious scoring. Another sub plot of Wimbledon is the question of the who will be the next British champion? Decades of have gone by since Fred Perry won Wimbledon in 1936, and the current hope is top five player Andy Murray.
Finally there’s the US Open, which is held in Queens, New York City during the week before and after Labor Day. The US Open is held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center and is played on a hard court surface. The surfaces of the US Open, as well as those of the US Open Series, are blue which provide a better view of the ball. The US Open series takes place the six weeks prior to the US Open and allows players to accumulate points, which can enhance the prize money they earn at the US Open. The US Open Series is played throughout the USA and in Canada. As a result, no matter where you live in the USA you will be able to catch some of the action as the competitors make their way to the US Open.
Broadway's Unexpected Hit: "Legally Blonde: The Musical"
Who'd have ever thought that a Reese Witherspoon movie comedy would be the stuff of Broadway's next big hit. And yet here it is--what TIME Magazine called "an Elle of a show."
We're talking, of course, about "Legally Blonde: the Musical," which is now accepting ticket orders for its performances that begin in February. Similar to the movie, the stage version of "Legally Blonde" follows sorority student Elle Woods who, because of her good looks, is routinely underestimated in the brains department. Her boyfriend dumps Elle for someone he thinks is more serious, which causes Elle to hit the books and try something unthinkable: going to Harvard Law School. Yet during her journey, Elle demonstrates that being true to herself was always in vogue.
Although Elle is at college to try to prove something to her ex-boyfriend, she discovers instead that she has quite a sharp legal mind. And in humorous ways, she bewilders those around her, who expect her to be anything but smart.
"Legally Blonde," according to the critics who have seen it in advance, is a fun-filled musical that is sure to be a run-away hit.
The musical has outstanding choreography and dancing. In fact, it's done by Jerry Mitchell, who was nominated for a Tony Award in 2004 for choreography in "Never Gonna Dance." His next major project, on the heels of "Legally Blonde," will be the musical version of another movie: "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Other past work for Mitchell has included "Hairspray," "Gypsy," "The Full Monty," "Gypsy," "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," and "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." In films, he also did work on "In and Out," "Camp," "Drop Dead Gorgeous," and "Hedwig and the Augry Inch."
Handling the writing chores for "Legally Blonde" are Larry O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin. They've worked together before; one of the most notable instances was "Sarah, Plain and Tall," which started off as a project for children's theater. Once they were done with it, it evolved into a much-admired off-Broadway musical.
The duo also wrote "Mice," which is the primary musical in "Three." "Mice" played in Los Angeles at the Ahmanson Theater O'Keefe also wrote the lyrics for "Bat Boy: The Musical," an unexpected off-Broadway hit. He also write songs for "The Daily Show" and "The at in the Hat." O'Keefe has won the ASCAP Richard Rodgers New Horizon Award in 2001 plus the Jonathan Larson Foundation Award in 2001.
As for Mr. Benjamin, the writer has produced scripts for "Unhappily Ever After," a WB Television show. He also won the 2003 Kleban Foundation Award for America's most promising lyricist, in addition to the Jonathan Larson Performing Arts Foundation Grant in 2003.
With talent in the cast, a great script and memorable songs, it's small wonder "Legally Blonde: the Musical" is receiving so much buzz. It promises to do as much for Broadway as the cinema version did for movie theaters. Buy your tickets early. FrontRow.com sells tickets to most major Broadway performances, and will be happy to assist you.

Britney Spears Archive
An Old-Timer's Guide
So you've been roped in by your kids or grand-kids to go with them to a Britney Spears concert. Quite naturally, you know nothing about her music and not much more about her. Not to worry: We're here to give even the novie the knowledge they need to enjoy the concert.
Britney Spears has gone from a small-town girl to an international superstar in just a short time. She was born on December 2, 1981 in Kentwood, LA, USA. Born on 2 December 1981 in the small town of Kentwood, Louisiana, She grew up idolizing all the female pop stars of the 1980’such as Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, and especially Madonna.
Britney’s first real shot at stardom came at the age of 8 when she auditioned for Disney’s "The All New Mickey Mouse Club;" but she was a that time too young to star in the show. But she didn’t let that stop her; soon after Britney and her family moved north to New York for more opportunities. When in the Big Apple oung to get the part. Instead, Britney, her mother and baby sister moved to New York where she starred in several TV adverts and an off broad-way play "Ruthless", where she was an understudy with Natalie Portman. Her love of music and dance took over and 2 years later she auditioned for a part in Mickey Mouse again and this time won the part.
Despite her early setbacks, she was still destined for superstardom. As a child she as always found singing some hit song, and since then she never stopped. At the age of 17, she finally had hit songs of her own to sing. Her debut album, “…Baby One More Time,” was released in early 1999 and the debut single (also titled “…Baby One More Time”) took to the top of the album charts. The album stayed at number one on the pop charts for six weeks, and eventually went fourteen-times platinum, selling millions of copies. Britney stirred up some controversy by posing semi-nude for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, but that only served to increase her popularity across the US and the world.
Britney went on to release four more studio albums. Her second album, “Did It Again,” released in mid-2000, also ended up a chart-topper. It quickly became to that date the fastest-selling album by a female artist, reaching #1 on the charts by selling 1.3 million copies in the first week of release.
Her eponymous album, “Britney,” came out in late 2001, and again debuted at #1 on both the US and Canadian charts, selling over 740,000 units its first week in the US. This made her the only female artist in SoundScan history to have her first three albums debut at #1. The top 30 hit single from that album was titled “I’m A Slave 4 U,” which also sparked some controversy.
Her 2003 album was titled “In the Zone.” This album is notable for taking a different tone in production, including the hot new producer RedZone, along with industry giants like the electronic artist Moby and the R&B singer R. But Britney didn’t let the producers have all the fun; she co-wrote more than half of the songs on the album. “In The Zone,” like its predecessors, debuted at the top of the charts, giving Britney Spears the distinction of being the first woman in music history to debut at the top of the chart with her first four albums..
Her 2004 tour, named The Onyx Hotel Tour, was one of the highest grossing tours of that year, and probably would have been the top selling tour of 2004 if it had not been cancelled. The tour made $34 million and an estimated 600,000 fans across the United States, Canada, and tour dates in Europe.
U2 - Cutting Edge Band Uses Cutting Edge Architecture
Normally when we think of any famous rock band, we think of their music. That includes the voices, the musical instruments, and maybe even the costumes and special-effects machines. The one thing we normally don't even consider is architecture.
That is, until recently. More and more, bands are thinking about how they look on stage, and how the architecture of the stage adds to that effect. Take, for instance, the classic, yet always cutting-edge, band U2.
After more than 30 years as one of rock music’s most celebrated pioneers, the Irish band famously known as U2 is once again breaking new ground in the touring circuit with an innovative stage design for the group’s 360° Tour.
The progressive architecture design revolves around a circular shaped stage placed in the center of the venue’s field, with no designated front or back, to ensure audiences a 360° view of the band. The four-legged structure, nicknamed “the claw” by band members, also offers a circular silk screen hanging all the way around the stage to increase the view for audience members sitting further back.
Not only does this design allow audiences an unobstructed view, but with each leg of the structure set up with its own sound system for better audio, and the increased seating generated with the circular stage, this tour cleverly increases U2’s proximity with their fans and establishes an intimate atmosphere oftentimes found in smaller venues. The show is also expected to set records for attendance at each venue based on this set up.
Architect Mark Fisher worked with U2’s show director Willie Williams to foster the concept inspired by the Theme Building at the Los Angeles International Airport. At 164 feet tall, and requiring 120 trucks to transport, production for the 360° tour is expected to be higher than any previous U2 tour. However, the band is doing its part to stay green despite the potentially significant environmental impact this tour could have by purchasing carbon offsets.
A 3-D composition of the stage is available through the band’s official Web site, U2.com.
Despite the fact Fisher said he’s been toying with the idea of a similarly designed stage set up since the band’s 2006 Vertigo tour, the 360° Tour will mark the first time U2 has hit the road with the one-of-a-kind construction. And the stage design isn’t the only new addition to the U2 empire; additionally, this tour kicks off a new contract between the band and Blackberry, signaling the end of a previous contract U2 held with Apple, Inc.
