Post MotoGP

I used to hate this guy because he makes life so rough on the 'old guys' in the sport, but the more 'real him' that I see, the reactions to his own defeats/failures, being a good winner, his overall attitude, and interviews like this.... the more I like him. I don't WANT to like him, but I guess I do.

Re: MotoGP

The mere mention of Mat Mladin's name makes me angry.

I'm going to go punch a kitten now.

Re: MotoGP

Yeah, Mladin was a dick, but ya gotta admit that he and Spies brought us some of the absolute best head-to-head racing in US Superbike in the last 15-20 years. Watching them bang on each other lap after lap at Mid-O was wonderful drama. Nobody/nothing has taken their place since they left….

Re: MotoGP

He strikes me as an amazingly mature and well-grounded 21-year-old.
Not at all like I was at his age back among the dinosaurs.

The Doctor is still my man, but I've come to greatly appreciate Marquez for more than his incredible alien-like talent.

Re: MotoGP

Looks like MotoGP is now on FoxSports2 (WTF?) which will be showing the race tomorrow (Sunday) at 2pm. FS1 will be showing the races on Wednesday (WTF?). Obviously no way in hell I'm gonna be able to make it to Wednesday without seeing any spoilers. That sucks.

Have already seen a spoiler, but yes... I've definitely gotta see it.

Actually, I just checked again.... FS1 has MotoGP listed for Monday at 9pm. Not sure why my DVR isn't automatically recording it. Perhaps the title is slightly different. Not sure. I've manually told it to record that listing.

MotoGP/Moto2/Moto3 all showing Wednesday, starting at 3am.
