Edwards finally wins

On Sunday, Carl Edwards finally broke his 52 race drought, by winning Nascar's Nextel Cup race at Michigan International Raceway. This also ends a long ordeal for Edwards's childhood friend Tom Giacchi. Giaccih made a bet with Edwards in November 2005 that he wouldn't shave until Edwards won again. As Carl was coming off consecutive victories at Atlanta and Texas, it didn't seem like much of a bet. "At home a couple of times, I'd be in a Dairy Queen and Amish people would come in and they had huge beards also. I was like, 'Yeah, my brothers! I can work with them all day," joked Giacchi.

Let's just hope for Edwards' sake that his girlfriend didn't make the same bet 2 years ago, or he'd need a jungle machete to get laid.
