Dale Earnhardt died 10 years ago today.
I was at the Daytona 500 a few years prior, when Dale won
his only Daytona 500, producing covereage for Sportscenter.
Jeff Gordon, the reigning 500 champ, had been our co-host
all week long with Kenny Mayne. After Dale won, he came to
our studio a few hours (and some champagne) later to tape
segments with us. He walked into our studio, looked right at
Kenny, and said "Are you still dating that Gordon fella?"
I'm not a big NASCAR guy but you had to love #3.
