The NTT IndyCar Series raced last weekend without Jimmie Johnson for the first time in 2021, but the seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion still was racing – and with family. Lydia Johnson, 8, climbed aboard a Supercross-style dirt bike and hit a local track for the first time with her dad. “She’s talked about it for a while,” Johnson told NBC Sports, adding Lydia “has a little desire to race and will ride anything until it’s out of gas” and also has a go-kart along with her sister, Genevieve (who is more into horses). “So this is the first time we really kind of took a step in that direction. “We’ve been slow-playing it just wondering if it’s something she’s really interested in. Her and her sister both ride horses quite a bit right now and have other activities that they’re caught up in, but she’s pressed long enough and worked hard to earn her dirt bike.” JIMMIE’S INDYCAR SEASON : How the No. 48 did at Barber l And at St. Pete Was Dad excited?

Kyrie Irving decided speaking to the media was less painful than giving up $25,000 , and on Monday the Brooklyn point guard took part in a wide-ranging Zoom interview with the press. One where he had to walk back — or “clarify” if you want to sound like a politician — some of his recent comments. All quotes in this story are via Ian Begley at SNY.TV. Irving admitted he was wrong in his earlier comments about Steve Nash as coach. On Kevin Durant ‘s podcast, Irving had talked about how the Nets didn’t have a “head coach” in the traditional sense and that everyone (himself and Durant included) would pitch in. “You know, I think I’ve got to take back my comments in terms of the head coach back a few months ago,” Irving said. “Steve’s been amazing. And it really is a reflection of the type of person he is, and the IQ he has for the game. He commands the respect and it’s not through just coming in and being the kind of typical rah-rah coach being on us. It’s just giving us a … [Read more...] about Kyrie Irving speaks to media about ‘pawns,’ Steve Nash, Harden rumors

Getty Images By all appearances, the Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers have set up shop on the other side of a thick line in the sand, and no one is budging. Unless the two sides reach a compromise (if there was a compromise to be had, it arguably would have already happened), someone will have to blink. Will it be Rodgers? Based on the world-class grudges he has held in the past, that’s highly unlikely. Will it be the Packers? There has been no indication that they’ll give in, which obviously could be aimed at maximizing whatever someone else offers for him. There’s another angle worth considering, and it traces to the fact that the Packers don’t have a traditional owner. If the team had an owner who couldn’t be fired, the owner could/would survive making a mistake in the handling of Rodgers. CEO Mark Murphy is the closest thing the team has to an owner, and he risks eventual accountability based on the manner in which the Rodgers saga unfolds. The options for the … [Read more...] about Do Packers prefer an Aaron Rodgers retirement to a trade?
