Michael Schumacher made it official today; the winningest driver in Formula 1 history is retiring at the end of the season. what's more he still has a chance to go out on top: he won the Italian Grand Prix today and is now only two points behind Fernando Alonso.
I think it's better to go out on top of your game than to leave with your skills in rapid decline. And of course this is auto racing. If you stay too long, heck you could get killed. So better to quit while you're ahead. Anyway, I think it's great that Formula 1 is in store for a very dramatic, big finish to the season. It's shaping up to be one of the better finishes to the season in years.
Who knows, maybe this isn't the end of Schumi's racing career. He's only 38, you know. Maybe Schumacher will decide to join NASCAR too, and beat up regularly on Juan Pablo Montoya and Jacques Villeneuve.
Speaking of NASCAR news, Tony Stewart will not defend the NEXTEL Cup. He was booted out of the CHASE last night in Richmond. So NASCAR heads to the homestretch, the final ten dramatic races for the Cup. But who cares about auto racing anymore, right? The NFL is back!
