Hamilton Makes NASCAR History as First Black Race Director

Jusan Hamilton grew up working on cars in his grandfather's garage, and he has been in love with motorsports ever since.

Is Bill Murray a Good Luck Charm? Xavier Fans Hope So

Is Bill Murray a Good Luck Charm? Xavier Fans Hope So

Bill Murray is having quite the year. It's always a good time to be the iconic 66-year-old 'Ghostbusters' actor, but it turns out that this is a pretty good time to be a fan of his favorite sports teams, too. The Chicago-area native was front and center for his beloved Cubs’ first World Series victory in 108 years – singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game;" appearing on 'Saturday Night Live' with team members; calling for Mayor Emanuel to cancel school; and even making one fan’s dream come true. He crashed postgame interviews, victory celebrations and even a White House press briefing, all for the love of his Cubbies. Now Murray has his sights set on March Madness, and his support of bracket-busting Xavier University has led some to speculate that perhaps there’s a little something more to his diehard fandom.
