Delilah DiCrescenzo, the inspiration for the Plain White T's Grammy-nominated song "Hey There Delilah," won the USATF National Club Cross Country Championships on Saturday in West Chester, Ohio. DiCrescenzo, an Olympic hopeful in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, ran the 6-kilometer (3.7-mile) course in 20 minutes, 30.7 seconds. "I'm good friends with the guys from Plain White T's," she said after the race. "They called me a few days ago to let me know they've been nominated for two Grammys, so I'm really excited for them. It's a very unique opportunity, and a funny set of circumstances, but I'm glad to be associated with the song".

Self-congratulation at ESPN is nothing new, but it's actually warranted Tuesday when the network celebrates its popular " This Is SportsCenter" commercials. In addition to highlights from the 12-year-old campaign, The Best of This Is SportsCenter (Dec. 11, 8 pm/ET) will debut three new spots.

Also Tuesday, NASCAR driver Carl Edwards takes the spotlight at the Busch Series Awards (Dec. 11, 7 pm/ET, ESPN2). Edwards won the 2007 Busch Series title (NASCAR's second-highest circuit) and finished ninth in the top-tier Nextel Cup standings.
