We've never seen a regatta so INTENSE!
A crazy incident happened in Riverhead, New York, this past weekend during their Snowflake Regatta — and it was NOT smooth sailing for these boat race speedsters!

A LOT of accidents happened that resulted in tons of people being thrown overboard, a lot of curses being thrown around by the participants' parents, a lot of boats getting stuck in the water and/or running into each other, and at least one child getting hit in the head by an oar!

To the wonderful mastermind who invented the speedo, we have one thing to say to you:
Ryan Lochte showed off his chiseled bod in an itty bitty swim suit as he emerged from a pool after warming up for the Mel Zajac Jr. International Canada Cup in Vancouver!
The Olympic gold-medalist not only looked great, but he had a pretty good day in the pool as well as he won four out of his six races, including the 100 meter freestyle!!
We're sure the tiny speedo he wore helped him out in his victories, so we think he should DEFINITELY wear them more often! Like all the time. Pretty please? LOLz!

We know Sarah Jessica Parker is into fashion, but we didn't think that meant fashionably late!
The Sex And The City star was spotted taking her twin daughters to school in NYC on Thursday.
She must have been running late, because pretty soon she was running late!

NASCAR has been using the same point system since 1975, but officials are considering scrapping it for a simpler system that awards points depending on each racer’s finishing position.
First place would get 43 points, and each place after would get one point less (i.e. 2nd place gets 42 points and 43rd gets 1 point).
NASCAR is trying to make the sport more competitive and create a “game 7” atmosphere that other sports have.
"Right now every sports league, or almost every one, is looking at what they need to do to change their formats a little or a lot, depending on who they are, to make sure their playoffs or their championship runs are what they want them to be," NASCAR Chairman Brian France said two days before the November season finale.
Competition is healthy for any sport — this all sounds good to us!
