Default Mladin Monotony

Excellent point, it is like if Kobe Bryant played in the CBA, and refused to go to the NBA.

Default Re: *Spoiler* Daytona Superbike Results.

Mladin won?? Boy, that WAS sure a spoiler for me! Whoda thunk it? I wouldn't have guessed that in a million friggin years. I mean, it was such a shocker I nearly passed out! It makes me want to watch the rest of the years' racing just to see who might win THOSE races. Looks like Superbike is going to be just as exciting as the last 6 years, eh?

Default Angry bird?

I'm curious as to why towards the end of the race, there was a fellow double fisting the bird to the world before he got into the ambulance? Did anyone catch a reason for that? I unfortunately couldn't pay enough attention to see what had happened. Funny though the Speed commentators obviously didn't have anything to say about it cause it went silent for about 5 seconds

He had just survived a crash. My son tells me that the gesture is used sometimes by Generation Xers as in "World, you haven't gotten me. F*** you!" He thought it was appropriate in the circumstances.

Default Peter Principle

If he moves to World Superbike, the competition will be stiffer, and he ain't gettin' any younger. As it stands, anyone who *might* be able to beat him with another season or two of experience is hustled out of the class, either up to World or laterally, to something like British Superbike.



Besides, American Superbike is the pinnacle of U.S. road racing (for better or worse), whereas World is increasingly seen by many as the refugee/semi-retirement area of failed MotoGP hopefuls.



Remember the Peter Principle, which states that people will naturally rise to fill the position that corresponds with their highest point of incompetency? Mladin has sucessfully avoided that fate. Racing (and its sponsors) is terribly fickle.



I think Mat Mladin is surely not be envious of Nicky Hayden's current postion. Who's name is mentioned more, these days? Who wins more races? Who probably makes more money, especially from endorsements? No, Mladin needs to stay right where he is, and retire with about 10 or 12 consecutive AMA Superbike titles, make his name in the history books.

Last I checked the "Generation X" time span consisted of 1964-1976/77.



Yeah, those wacky 30 to 40 year old kids.
