NASCAR WAGs: Jordan Fish Is A Former Bobcats Dancer & Dating Denny Hamlin

I don’t follow NASCAR much, but I do know that Denny Hamlin is a bit of a young gun on the left-turn-making-circuit. Of course we always assumed NASCAR drivers pulled decent trim, but Denny Hamlin hit it out of the park. It’s one thing to find a sexy Southern belle down in North Carolina. It’s a whole different game when you score a former NBA dancer! I’ve always argued that...

The New Orleans Hornets won the NBA Draft Lottery and will soon have a new cornerstone to their franchise. For a franchise that's been in flux for the last three years or so, it was a great night.
