Where are they now?

The spotlight cast by the sports media is said to provide longevity to certain individuals who have excelled in their respective sports. Unfortunately (for these sports “heros”), the reality is that the media spotlight is fleeting.

I would like to begin a series of articles dedicated to briefly regaining that spotlight.

Dale Earnhardt (not junior)

Known for his success in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series, Earnhardt won seventy-six individual races and seven championships during his career. A few of the many accolaids Dale earnhardted :

-1979 Rookie of the Year

-Four-time IROC Champion

-Motorsports Hall of Fame Inductee (2002)

-International Motorsports Hall of Fame Inductee (2006)

Without a doubt Dale Earnhardt was a great race car driver during his career, but the point of this article is to find out what he’s up to now.

Where is Dale Earnhardt now? He’s Dead.

RIP big E.

Barbaro (the horse)

He captured our imagination and our hearts. Then our hearts and imagination broke when his leg did. That was one sad day. And it only got sadder since they had to euthanize him. I think they should outlaw rodeos and horse racing. If you don’t agree, then you’ll have to live with a lot of blood on your hands and hearts.
