No, let's go for a half-dozen.

I heard Marco say that when he pitted for rain tires he didn't put double pucks on and consequently he couldn't be as aggressive as Chris so he slowed down. That's an interesting oversight. I wonder how many guys routinely double puck when the pit for rain tires?

I heard Nicky say that his crew accidently triple pucked his right knee and he ended up in the gravel trap when it caught on a discarded tearoff. At least I think that is what he said......he still had his helmet on at the time. If they were giving style points for dramatic getoffs, Nicky would have finished on top although there was a lot of competition today. Both Frenchies were running up front until their pit boards reminded them that they were French and it was their sacred duty to surrender so they did.

Only one left not in captivity.

WHY or WHY? Why do they show 15 minutes of the riders on the grid, then cut out 6 laps of action at the end of the race??? Freakin idiots!

10 laps to go, cut to commercial, 4 laps to go. I don't get it. Why do I pay for this crap?

The race was slower because of the rain. Speed allocates one hour to show the race - so they cut out some laps so it would fit in the 60 minute slot. What a shame they didn't cut out 50 of the commercials.

Speed just replays whatever MotoGP gives them. Stupid. No one at Speed cares about motorcycle racing.

Gotta love the new into...
