The pain was evident in Jeff Gordon‘s body language Monday afternoon outside the care center at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International where he was given the once-over after being involved in a frightening late race accident.
The resulting 37th place finish tied his worst showing of the season and was only his second finish outside the top-20 since April — a dismal conclusion to an un-Gordon-like road course outing.
My friend Shango always has good sports opinions.
Country music duo Brooks & Dunn, whose honky-tonk bravado catapulted them to the top of the charts for almost two decades, said on Monday they would break up after a farewell tour next year.
Singer/guitarists Kix Brooks, 54, and Ronnie Dunn, 56, said in a statement that “it’s just time” for the split, which surprised music industry observers.
“After 20 years of making music and riding this trail together, we have agreed as a duo that it’s time call it a day,” they said
“This ride has been everything and more than we could ever have dreamed…. We owe it all to you, the fans. If you hear rumors, don’t believe them, it’s just time.”
Dates have yet to be announced for next year’s concert outing, dubbed The Last Rodeo Tour. It will be preceded next month by a hits record, “#1 … and then some.”
