SDSU beats Cal in Sacramento – San Diego Union-Tribune
If you looked at the final statistics but not the final score, you wouldn’t expect it resulted in a 12-point Aztecs win. They shot 36.9 percent, were outrebounded 50-37, made fewer free throws (22 to 26) and had their bigs in foul trouble most of the night.

But Cal shot 32.1 percent – the fourth straight time they haven’t topped 40 percent against SDSU – and made only 17 baskets. And the Aztecs had just five turnovers to the 16 for the Bears.

Seven titles might not be enough for Johnson – San Diego Union-Tribune
If there was a Mount Rushmore of stock car racing, Petty, Earnhardt and Johnson would be the first three faces carved in stone. The fourth could be Jeff Gordon, or David Pearson, or Cale Yarborough.

The point is that El Cajon native Jimmie Johnson — whose roots are in dirt bikes and off-road racing — is now inarguably one of the three greatest competitors in the history of his sport.
