LOUDON, N.H. -- NASCAR drivers mostly come from outside the Carolinas and they dont have Carolina or Charlotte across their uniforms, but they have a connection to the unrest in Charlotte.When protests in the city turned violent Wednesday night -- the day after a police officer fatally shot Keith Lamont Scott -- windows were smashed in the lobby to the building that houses NASCARs downtown offices. A window to the city-owned NASCAR Hall of Fame also was broken.While the Hall of Fame has remained open Thursday (with the National Guard protecting the facility), NASCAR closed its offices to normal business. Protests on Thursday night were more peaceful.Theres an emotional reaction, Connecticut native Joey Logano?said prior to practice Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. A lot of times when you see things like this happen, its in a different city and you dont recognize where its at. But when you see the NASCAR building getting vandalized and you see areas of the city that you know very well with just crazy things happening, it makes you sick to your gut.You dont know what to do and you kind of feel helpless.Matt Kenseth was at the NASCAR offices Wednesday, several hours before the lobby windows were broken.You just hope it stops, Kenseth said. I dont know enough about what actually happened to start it all. Obviously, I think we are very, very, very fortunate to live in a free country, and peaceful protests and demonstrations are OK.The violence and the vandalism and theft and stuff isnt really a way to prove a point or try to make things better.Last week,?Brad Keselowski wrote a blog post about NFL quarterback?Colin Kaepernicks national anthem protest over social injustice. In the blog, titled Truth and Grace, Keselowski wrote, My issue with Colins protest was not in the truth of his position. Theres no part of me trying to deny that. But Keselowski was in favor of a more graceful way to protest (specifically without offending members of the military or their families).[The blog] certainly applies to the situation in Charlotte, Keselowski said Thursday morning, after the Wednesday violence left one protester dead and another civilian in jail as a suspect in that shooting death.I think whether theres truth or not, that could be a long argument. I think there is some truth [giving credence to the protest], Keselowski said. But I think there is no argument about grace.Most of the drivers live at least a 20-minute drive away from where the protests occurred, either north or south of the center of downtown Charlotte.All we can do really is just say some prayers and hope that eventually everything calms down and everyone is able to come to some kind of peace at the end of this thing, and we can move on and move forward and make our world better, Logano said. Right now, its a scary situation.Austin Dillon is one of the few North Carolina natives competing at the Sprint Cup level.Its sad [where] the country is at this point in time, Dillon said. I hope that everybody that can look at everything and gather their thoughts and figure out the right way to fix the problems we have. Hopefully ... the right people will come together and fix these problems that are going on. Oren Burks Super Bowl Jersey . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse. Darnell Savage Jr. Super Bowl Jersey . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead. Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. http://www.packersonlineteamstore.com/m ... ersey.html .ca. Hey Kerry, big fan of yours, just finished reading your book. I think that we all saw the Canucks/Flames line brawl just after puck drop. It was obvious that something was about to happen, even to the referees because the fourth lines were on to start. Marquez Valdes-Scantling Super Bowl Jersey . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. Jimmy Graham Super Bowl Jersey . Radwanska, making her debut in the Seoul tournament, hit eight aces in a match that lasted 1 hour, 4 minutes at Olympic Park tennis stadium. "It was definitely a very good match -- I was playing really good tennis," Radwanska said. England ended their decade-long wait for victory over South Africa with a resounding 37-21 victory at Twickenham that extends their triumphant run to 11 Tests.After 11 defeats and a draw in their previous 12 meetings dating back to 2006, Eddie Jones men put the Springboks to the sword through tries from Jonny May, Courtney Lawes, George Ford and Owen Farrell.May marked the conclusion of his injury-enforced spell in the international wilderness by finishing a slick score originating from a line-out, while Lawes celebrated his 50th cap by using his athleticism to complete an opportunistic counter-attack.Elliot Dalys full debut at outside centre mixed good with bad after the Wasps man initiated the move that led to Lawes crossing and landing a long-range penalty, but he was also thrown around on occasion.Head coach Eddie Jones branded South Africa bullies in the build up to this Old Mutual Wealth Series opener and described their rugby philosophy as chess with steroids, but these Springboks are a poor team who finished the match a disorganised mess.The rope-a-dope tactics Jones had said would be required to absorb the pressure from the tourists big ball carriers were only necessary for half an hour, by which point England were in full control. It was an ugly spectacle at times but the Grand Slam champions, who have amassed nine wins under Jones, were able to bring Twickenham to its feet with flashes of brilliance, among them two dummies from scrum-half Ben Youngs.Indiscipline resulted in England making a poor start as they conceded three penalties inside the opening five minutes alone, enabling South Africa to take a 6-0 lead through Pat Lambies boot.An attacking line-out provided them with the platform to hit back, however, with Marland Yarde roaming infield to create an overlap before combining with Mike Brown to send May racing over in the left corner. It was a slick response from England given tthe damp conditions, but for the second time in the opening quarter they allowed South Africa to surge through the middle of the ruck with Vincent Koch rampaging in the footsteps of Tendai Mtawarira before him.ddddddddddddCombined with a scrum that came apart at the seams, the Grand Slam champions were coming under sustained pressure and Lambie was able to land another three points.A bulldozing run from Billy Vunipola generated momentum and with South Africa producing two poor kicks, England were able to spend a significant spell in the opposition 22 until Ford sent a drop-goal wide.Now there was conviction about their play as Ben Youngs made a forceful break that established field position under the posts and in the process a head on head collision between Billy Vunipola and Eben Etzebeth ended the giant Springbok locks afternoon.A collapsed scrum allowed Farrell to land a penalty and the lead was extended to 17-9 following a sharp counter-attack that started on the 22 with Daly kicking into space and May and Brown hacking on before Lawes arrived to touch down.Daly landed a monster penalty from close to the halfway line to create more daylight between the rivals and with half an hour remaining the outcome was beyond doubt.Youngs was almost at a stroll as he exploited a gap at the breakdown, easily duping flanker Pieter-Steph du Toit with a dummy before supplying Ford with the scoring pass for their third try.After a period of meandering, England were stung by seeing Johan Goosen link with Willem Alberts for the Springboks first try and touched down for a fourth time with Youngs selling another dummy with Farrell on hand to finish on this occasion.South Africa had the final say when Willie le Roux dotted down in the corner, but the contest had long since been decided.
