You know all that garbage about drivers not being athletes? Well, at least one of them, Carl Edwards, has apparently decided to start demonstrating that he can do anything that "real" athletes can do, starting at the bottom and working up. First off: kicking a field goal: Yep, if your team gets down to the 10 yard line and can't punch it in, Edwards is your man! (What, no backflip?) The event, obviously, was designed to promote the season-ending race at Homestead, at which Edwards surely hopes he'll be able to manage more than three points. You're next, designated hitters.
