FanHouse: Wed. AM 'Rubbin' Is Racin'' Edition

Yesterday we unveiled Rubbin' is Racin', our regular Tuesday feature about feuds between guys who drive cars. No fisticuffs this week, just terse statements between NASCAR teammates. (I think our NASCAR and college basketball pages are the only ones that don't require regular blotter coverage.)

On a more high-minded level: Michael David Smith wrote a great post about the anonymous ESPN commenter "SeattleStatman" whose tiny internet note got a Boston Globe sportswriter suspended for plagiarism.

And this is my favorite headlines since this. It just never gets old for me.
