Thursdays are marathon days for this rock jock. I'm in before 6 a.m. to talk with the good folks at Eyewitness News. Most weeks it's all fun and games. This week was different. On my way in that morning, I battled a semi seemingly driven by the ghost of Dale Sr. The Intimidator indeed. Did I mention that it was raining buckets as this was going on? Waves of rainwater cascaded over the hood of my vehicle. It was biblical.
