Jeff Gordon has plenty of motivation for the upcoming NASCAR season. It's the soundtrack rich with voices of children laughing, crying and calling out for daddy dearest. Gordon and his wife Ingrid Vandebosch are parents to two children: Ella Sofia is 31/2. Leo Benjamin was born on Aug. 9. So much for Gordon's plans to retire at 40. "It's making me drive longer, I can tell you that," Gordon, 39, said jokingly during preseason testing at Daytona International Speedway.

Saturday's 31-20 victory over visiting North Carolina Central lifted Towson to a 2-2 record, marking their first time at .500 since the beginning of the season. The win also injected some much-needed confidence into the team, coach Rob Ambrose said Monday during his weekly conference call arranged by the Colonial Athletic Association. “These are college students with college-student problems and injuries,” he said. “Everybody's got problems. So it's about managing them as best we can and moving forward.

Tom Petty has been making albums with the Heartbreakers since 1976, but "Mojo" is the first studio release in which the band sounds like it's on equal footing with the songs. Tom Petty has been making albums with the Heartbreakers since 1976, but "Mojo" is the first studio release in which the band sounds like it's on equal footing with the songs. That's both a plus and minus. Petty's best songs have a certain economy best served by terse arrangements and the self-effacing interplay of his bandmates.

Now they are being counterprogrammed against each other. Monday night, Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco , did an impressive turn on Letterman , who came calling for more with the Harbaugh booking.

HERNDON, Va. -- "Well, first we'll introduce ourselves to each other," Wayne Sevier said.The Washington Redskins' special teams coach had been asked how he will array his troops to meet the New Orleans invasion after counting the casualties of Philadelphia.Sevier was exaggerating, outrageously and facetiously, when he was interrupted by a phone call.Actually, Sevier told the caller, he was pretty happy with the personnel he had. Anyway, he'd be interested only in somebody who had punted in the NFL. Call back after the season, OK?

Want to get lucky? Feel free to experiment with the rabbit's feet, holy medals, Mercury dimes, mojo bags, sachet powders, bath crystals, floor wash, candles, roots, oils and incense for sale at an online outfit like the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. Or take a lesson from Richard Wiseman, a psychologist at the University of Hertfordshire in England. He thinks he's got an answer worth all the four-leaf clovers you could possibly pluck. But the key to good luck, alas, won't fit in your pocket or work at the casino.

Labor Day has come and gone, and I'm on the road again, lecturing. And listening. The following seem worthy of sharing:* Two CEOs. A captain of industry (mid-Atlantic states) pulls me aside after a talk and lectures me on business strategy. He talks in metaphorical terms, then sings the praises of pursuing vulnerable opponents in forgotten markets. Fine. Except that in a 15-minute monologue he never once shows the slightest interest in his products or people. He's animated, to be sure, but in a way that reminded me of nothing so much as Dr. Strangelove.

Got a secret? Please don't tell anybody associated with NASCAR. Your secret will go viral shortly after it leaves your lips. Consider two significant changes on the horizon that haven't been announced "officially" but have been all over Twitter and the rest of cyberspace for the last few weeks as NASCAR prepares to kick off its 2011 season: •Expect a change in the points system to determine the Sprint Cup champion. •And all those "bushwackers" who love to double-dip on Saturdays and Sundays now must decide whether they want to compete for a Nationwide title or a Sprint Cup title because they can't do both.

Oh, did the Ravens need this one. For their playoff chances. For their self-esteem. To get the media off their backs. To get their nervous fans back onto the bandwagon. Here's all you need to know about Sunday's 30-7 knockout of the previously undefeated Denver Broncos at M&T Bank Stadium: The Ravens finally played like the Ravens again. They played with a swagger that was missing in their previous three games, three losses by a combined 11 points that left this team questioning itself, no matter what certain players tell you. And they played with a chip on their shoulder the size of a giant redwood, which has always been the Ravens' way. You want to talk about attitude?

Daniel Barrett, the curly haired singer and guitarist from Austin band porterdavis, finishes a set and sidles up to the long wooden bar at Mojo Side Stage in Canton. The 29-year-old hipster is tall and friendly and wears the perfect pair of funky yellow plastic glasses. "We like playing at places like this because we can talk to people," says Barrett. He becomes fast friends with members of the kickball team who wandered into the bar after losing their game. The evening has a feel of serendipitous fun. And as the night goes on, the bar fills up. Mojo Side Stage opened a little over a month ago in the space that used to be Cardwell's Tavern.
