Robbie Earl, NASCAR Legend?

carDo you know Robbie Earl? What if I told you he was a NASCAR driver, would you doubt it? To my ears, the name Robbie Earl says NASCAR, but he's actually a Toronto Maple Leafs prospect making his NHL debut tonight against the Sens.

From Wikipedia: "Robert Wayne Earl (born June 2, 1985, in Chicago, Illinois) is an African American hockey player currently with the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League." It's time to update that synopsis as he's been recalled by the Leafs.

In 44 games this season for the Marlies, he has 33 points with 11 goals and 22 assists. Gentlemen, start your engines.

There is NO gas in the engines & hasn't been for 40 years.
