Waging Battle

Jeff Burton's car may be in for that change sooner than later as AT&T filed a motion in an Atlanta U.S. District Court. No court date has been scheduled yet but AT&T is not being patient and I can't say as I blame them. I see both sides of the coin, yet Nextel will not lose a thing over this change especially with their own change on the horizon to "Sprint". AT&T, I feel, will be a good friend to NASCAR over the long run. They have the ability and resources to be very generous and with the amount of money needed for this sport, that we all love so much, Nextel should welcome them with open arms.

Mark Martin... I have nothing but respect for him. I'm happy to hear he had an awesome relaxing weekend. His protege Regan Smith could use some mentoring and guidance. His rookie luck is not doing so hot!!

Back at the cottage...We purchased a Minature Pinscher a week ago, a dog breed that Pattyjo has always wanted. At 11 weeks old, I am very impressed with this little guy. He's no fool!! Sadly he has a serious problem with his right shoulder. After we got him home we noticed him favoring his right leg. Our Vet took x-rays and the poor little guy had a fracture from several weeks ago or longer in the humerus that is now untreatable. It will effect him for the rest of his dog days and will most likely end with an amputation. New York state has a puppy lemon law and we paid well over a $1,000.00 for him. We could return him, but we have decided to keep him. The sellers have agreed to refund the money or we can take another pup, either way we are keeping the little guy. The decision of "money back" or "another pup" is still up for discussion.

There is a difference between sponsoring a car/team and sponsoring a racing series. Usually this argument has been resolved in favor of the team. Remember the Pepsi/Coke sponsership fiasco? AT&T, as a team sponsor is not in conflict with the series sponsor. This is the way I think the courts wil see it.

I tried to comment earlier and couldn't. Let's see if it works now.
I got my Digital Imaging at Amazon.com for only $20 brand new. It runs around $50 in the stores and elsewhere. Thought you'd like to know since it's on your wish list.

P.S. Please don't return that puppy. He might be put down if you do. Take the money and keep him. Please.
