CHARLOTTE, N.C. - If Greg Biffle could go back to Sunday, when he grabbed Jimmie Johnson by the collar and spun him around to confront him, he'd probably reach for the five-time champion's arm.

I have waited an entire year for this! Julie and I came early to meet friends, Hal and Cyborg Fiscal, whose names have been changed to protect the innocent, and the parking lot is filled to capacity.

If his bed is hard to make, he hides the sheet in the closet and throws the blanket over the bed. Concerning his schoolwork, he doesn't bother studying for tests - he figures he'll gets A's, anyway. We're now seeing this in his soccer practices, where he literally has started cutting corners. How can we ...
