SPORTS WPS

With the arrival of NFL playoff season I anticipate some fun football WPs; I've already seen mention of them in other posts, can't wait!

GO EAGLES!

That said, I'd like to request that the opening of MY favorite sports season be likewise honored with a WP or two next month in celebration of the Daytona 500.

I already know this won't meet with universal approval but fair is fair, I soldiered my clueless way through FIFA puzzles, so may I please have a racing puzzle for Daytona? Pleeease?

Thanks,
Donna

That was Bobby Hamilton who died yesterday from cancer. He was a great guy, always with a smile and a word for the fans, just like Richard. Far as I know, King Richard is still with us.

I did also hear that Benny Parsons is in the hospital.

They were showing Richard Petty's car this morning on the local news and saying that a racing legend had passed away...sorry about the mix up..from what they showed and said I assumed it was Richard Petty...I heard about Bobby Hamilton too..Benny Parsons also has cancer...haven't heard any updates on him...

Bobby drove the #43 for Richard for a while. That car is so well known it's a natural mistake to make. Last I heard at the end of the season, Benny was doing well; dunno why he's back in the hospital, the story I saw just said he was admitted.

From what I heard at noon he's in intensive care....Darrell Waltrip was asking for prayers on his website for both families...

The story in our AZ paper said Benny was admitted over 2 weeks ago due to
complications from lung cancer. If you remember he was diagnosed in July and
in October said he had beaten it. I hope he's got some more fight left in him.

I did wonder why Benny wasn't at the awards banquet when he was due to receive a lifetime achievement award. He looked wizened and exhausted when he appeared on a late-season race broadcast, but I'd hoped it was just an effect of weight loss. Bobby Hamilton was a great driver with an impressive career and far too young at 49, but Benny truly is one of the legends of the sport, on the track and in the booth. I wish him recovery, comfort, and peace.

This is slipping down the page and February's coming like a freight train!

Hello editors!

May the many NASCAR fans on this site please be blessed with a racing puzzle for Speedweeks?

And thanks for the Lee Petty puzzle in the 50s trivia WP!

Vroom!
Donna
