Ok, so I already know the results so this is going to be an odd blog… but nevertheless.. here we go…
Edit: ok… so the broadcast starts with the cars coming down the front stretch under the double yellow… brief explanation of why, of tires, of the former Champ Car teams hoping for rain, and… cut abruptly to commercial.
hey TSN!! You suck! You always did. You always will!
No opening credits, no “hey you’re joining us for the 2nd round of the 2008 IndyCar Series!”, no production value whatsoever…
Edit: the cars, while still hideous, don’t look as bad in street/road course trim.
of course you can hardly see them presently because of the rain… *snicker*
Edit: wow.. that’s a lot of water on track.
Wow… these cars sound like shit.
wow… these commentators are still as horrible as last week…
Edit: zzzzzzzzz… This is the time for all those filler fluff pieces kids… :bangsheadondesk:
on the bright side however, there does appear to be a pretty decent crowd, despite the rain.
Edit: well look at that! a filler fluff piece! There ya go! hehehe
Edit: hey Kev! (geesh… he looks like he’s aged 10yrs…) Oh, and all those that complained about Michelle Biesner… look at the alternative… :bangsheadondesk:
Edit: and Danican’t run’s out of talent again…
Edit: well, that 360 cam is nausea inducing…
Edit: hmmm… the CC drivers are passing and racing, the IC drivers are stalling and spazzy… LOL! nice… Here I was thinking “man, they really are talking about the transitioning drivers a lot” then I realized they make up 4 of the top 5… schooled I tell ya… schooled!
Edit: nice fucking Nascar yeller there… geezus. The princess can’t get lapped apparently. *cough* bullshit *cough*
Edit: when did Will turn into PT??
Edit: wow, they are taking some strange lines down the front straight
Edit: geezus… who the fuck is calling the camera changes??
oops… J-Wil got squirrelly… Vitor got him.
Edit: and Marco runs out of talent in the pits…
Edit: HOLY CRAP! Viso and Bernoldi are racy little fuckers!! Nice split of Foyt!! bwahahaha! That was fucking awesome!
Edit: wow… Ryan can’t buy a break.
Edit: geesh… the track dries and everyone forgets how to drive!
Justin… Justin… Justin…*shakes head*
um… not a good place to park there Ed…
wow… wonder who Bobby is cheering for?
Edit: Apparently TSN doesn’t see the value in “side-by-side” during commericals… fuckwits…
Edit: Graham is pulling away nicely!
It sure is nice to see all of those cars rounding the corner and coming down the front straight.
Long Beach is going to look like a fucking ghost town now… *sigh*
Edit: oops… that was messy.
Holy SHIT! Nice to see that Townsend hasn’t changed over the years.. LOL!! (and I was one of the folks in his corner during his rookie year with us) Good thing Vitor wasn’t in the process of getting out of his car at that point.
LOL at Vitor screaming at Franck and Franck just drinking his water like “whatever dude.. chill”
Damn… those are some dark skies…
Edit: wooohoooo!!! Go Graham!
aaawww… Booby is all teary eyed.
Dayum… he’s a rather abundant man. (remind me to stand next to him in the media centre when I’m having a bad body image day)(which is everyday, but I digress…)
Edit: Helio, cool cat, classy interview and kudos to the kid.
Kanaan, whiner 🙄 (when did that happen?? He used to be really fun when he drove for our side)
Viso, soooooo laid back. future star. :thumbsup:
Edit: Hey, I just realized we didn’t see the whole Bruno situation. It was funny as hell on the radio this afternoon. I couldn’t wait to see it actually unfold on the screen. Actually, they kinda glossed over the fact that he was even in the race or that he was out suddenly. *shrug*
Okey dokey. That was much better! Still a shitty production, but the race was definitely 100% more entertaining. Ok… gotta go write race reports…
