MLB trade deadline digest:
No sport offers up a more bewildering array of souvenir
crap memorabilia than NASCAR, and They Make It digs deep into the corners of the Internet to bring all that strangeness to light. Today: weaponry!
The item: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Trapper Commemorative Knife, $75 from RacingWin.com.
The deal: It's a Dale Earnhardt Jr. blade! Come on, how cool is that? You can brandish this the next time you're going all Sons of Anarchy on someone, and they'll ... well, they might not be all that worried, but hey, you never know. And any time you can combine NASCAR and cutlery, you know you're doing something right. (Tony Stewart's blade would be a fork. Ha, ha, ha.)
The hat tip: Marbles regular Carol Fitzgerald found this one for us. Got some bizarre NASCARiana for us to check out? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the details. Get to it!
