Right, I should have noted EST.



The only reason I saw it is that I had to be home at that time anyway. I would have recorded it, though, because I was interested in how ABC was going to handle it.



The race commentary was, uh, not very engaging. I like Schawntz, but he's not much of a broadcaster. The other guy they had tried, but it was obvious that he wasn't really familiar with the sport.



I'd give ABC a B- overall for the first time out.



Steelers players/lousy riders, aside, I'm looking forward to the NFL season very much (as every year), too.

I still have hope for KP.



Then again, I'm delusional.



KP, go out and buy the damn thing already!



(P.S. Chrome rims on your bike are totally cheesey.)

I wonder how many people in the good ole USA are subscribers to MotoGP? I find cable TV overpriced and poorly packaged for my interests, therefore I don't have it. Anybody remember this"... yup, you'll be able to watch what you want to watch and without commercials...". Sorry, gotta go and buy a lottery ticket to pay for education in this state...Sorry couldn't help myself.

Does anybody out there know if taping (recording) the races counts for the ratings?

I don't sit in front of the tube all day waiting for the races to be aired, but I do record and watch all of them. I hope it counts.

Unless you have a Nielson box attached to your set or an Arbitron diary none of what you do counts. If you are a Nielson home, recording programs would count.



Ratings are at best an educated guess based on the viewing habits of monitored homes.

I saw a picture of a Triumph Speed4 with apehangers. Don't limit the possibilities.
