Disturbing Video: Tony Stewart Runs Over Driver and Kills Him

kevin ward killed

NASCAR driver Tony Stewart ran over a competitor, 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr., during a confrontation at a sprint car race on Saturday night at Canandaigua Motorsports Park in New York. Ward was killed.

The incident is being investigated and new details are still coming to light. I don’t want to believe that a driver would intentionally swerve to hit another driver, but this video shows pretty damning evidence that will make people think Tony Stewart purposely drove into Kevin Ward. Let’s hope it was just an accident.

Warning: Video shows violent content and death. 

America’s 10 Most Miserable Sports Cities

How does a team make their fans feel miserable? Losing a lot is one way. But so is the tease, building up their hopes before letting them down. Teams from these 10 cities have toyed with their fans the most over the years. Misery points are awarded for postseason records – the later you lose the more points you get – supplemented by other factors like fewest championships per season and the length of a city’s current championship drought. Candidates are limited to those cities with at least 75 cumulative MLB, NFL, NBA, and NHL seasons.

No. 9: Minneapolis
Teams: Vikings, Twins, Timberwolves, Lakers, Wild, North Stars

Championship Round Record: 7-8
Semifinal Round Record: 12-18
Seasons/championships: 184/7
Last title: 1991
The Vikings were 0-4 in Super Bowls long before the Bills were.

I needed therapy after the 2009 Vikings season.

These are four of the most delicious-looking concessions available at the 2014 MLB All-Star Game at Target Field:

1. The Hangover Burger: The hangover burger uses a mix of ground beef and ground bacon for two quarter-pound patties. They’re topped with american cheese, lettuce, onions, a fried egg, and a sauce made from sriracha, ketchup, mayo and cornichons.

2. The Brat Dog: A footlong hot dog wrapped in bratwurst, then wrapped in bacon, served on a pretzel roll. There are peppers, too, so you get your veggies. It’s healthy, right?

3. The Double Play: A polish sausage and a bratwurst stuffed onto the same bun, side by side.

4. Lobster Corn Dog: Fried lobster on a stick. Let’s do this.
