It's only cheating if you get caught ...
Baseball has as many tricks as there are in sports when it comes to cheating from stealing signs, to scuffed balls to the aforementioned corked bats. Caddies on both the PGA and LPGA Tour give each other so many hand signals during a round of golf you'd think you were watching a third base coach calling for a squeeze play.
I don't get people's beef with NASCAR on Jimmie Johnson. His crew chief was not only tossed from the race, he was given a ticket out of town for the entire week. Johnson not only had to deal with a second team crew chief, he also had to start from the rear of the field.
Who better than The King to sum it up ... “I’d say everyone is trying to push the edge of what is legal," Richard Petty said during Speedweek. "If it is going on ... I’d tell my guys don’t get caught.”
No crew chief, lousy starting position, no help from his teammates and Johnson still wins the Daytona 500! Haters or not, you've got to give the 48 a high-five on that performance.
