How STUPID can SPEED be???

So, the introduction piece to the Daytona Superbike race includes a nice bit about FBF, Matt and Luca, and MV's legendary return to the AMA...

Then, during the grid position introductions, they throw this up...



Is it me, or DOES ANYBODY ELSE NOTICE SOMETHING, TWO THINGS, VERY WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE??? WTF??? WHERE THE F IS THE RESPECT???

F SPEED!!!

BTW, nice job by the boys...Should be a great season!

That is me, but the bong must belong to the Hyena...I don't smoke.

Larry - yeah, I caught that too. Pretty stupid.

They fixed it later. The final results showed an MV logo next to both our guys' names.

Also, in the begining they spelled MV Augusta, but changed to the correct spelling later.

Personality is what you show of yourself daily.

Character is what comes out under adversity. (Think about that)

Ya, I'm just rippin' on em'. At least they gave us some air time, showed the boys, and even offered up some nice during-the-race shots...

Hmmm...Maybe MV Agusta has never been a sponsor for Speed Channel (or Fox Network) while Yamaha and Kawasaki spend big bucks. That was my cynical view when I saw it onscreen. They also did it earlier during qualifying.

Those idiots also had Akira Yanagawa's face pic next to Eric Bostrom's name!

We're in for another long and stoopid commentating at the USGP.

I'm sorry, Freddie Spencer's pretty worthless too. I'm prolly still a little bothered by a disappointing Daytona. It's seem to suck more everyear. Was hoping for rejuvenation with MV's but it didn't work out. But I think the bike and the team are gonna be strong by the mid-way point! Go Matt and Luca!!

Daytona's kinda a stoopid track for motorcycle racing anyway.
