10 Things Less Shocking Than Racism in NASCAR

Have you heard about Mauricia Grant? She is the former technical inspector who is suing NASCAR for $225 million. Grant alleges she subjected to racial and sexual discrimination, sexual harassment and wrongful termination.

Grant's lawsuit stems from harassment in the racing garages. Grant says co-workers called her "Nappy Headed Mo" and "Queen Sheba", told her that she worked on "colored people time", and intimidated her by referencing the Ku Klux Klan.

Oh, did I tell you that Grant is black?

Considering the history of NASCAR, it's no surprise that racism is prevalent in the sport. Honestly, it's probably expected. Given that fact, I ask: what would be less shocking than hearing that NASCAR is being sued for racism? Let's make a list!

10. After finding his personal happiness, Floyd Mayweather decides to come out of retirement to box another payday.

9. Hours before a key playoff game, Tracy McGrady sneezes, triggering a back injury. He misses the game and the second round. Again.

8. Kelvin Sampson, now an assistant for the Bucks, is fined by the NBA for tampering with opposing players.

7. The revelation by Pete Rose that Pete Rose did, in fact, bet on baseball. A few of us had figured that was the case beforehand.

6. Bill Belichick hired an assistant to videotape the "games" he "plays" with his girlfriend.

5. Clay Bennett moves the Sonics to Oklahoma City despite a national outcry.

4. Jonathan Papelbon and his bullpen-mates signed a baseball in exchange for a naked picture of some random fan's ex-wife. Wait, I wasn't surprised by this.

3. While attending USC, O.J. Mayo was funneled thousands of dollars from a prospective agent.

2. A group of Dallas Cowboys, led by Pacman Jones, have created White House 2.0. This time, it's located inside the locker room.

1. Roger Clemens had relations with a goat while playing for the Yankees. Seriously, at this point, I will believe anything about this man.

Why is he wearing a Yankees hat if he did it while pitching for the Blue Jays?

How am I supposed to believe he ended his relationship with Mindy McCready a long time ago if he can't even break it off with a goat?!

Damn, I guess my source just gave me a photoshopped picture. I should have caught that. Where did my journalistic standards go?

About the Undrafted Free Agent

Ron Crimson was the only player on the high school roster to not get in a game. He couldn't argue with the decision, because he sucked. Needless to say, yet stated anyway, when he entered the NBA draft following his sophomore season in college, he went undrafted. Now, Ron Crimson is the Undrafted Free Agent.

Look at This!

There's nothing here; I just needed to fill some space. Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! I also needed to balance it out a bit.
