I normally watch it on speed when it comes on. THis time I put it on the DVR. So pisses! They did the usual life stories for 10 minutes before the race started and then ran late so the DVR cut off 3 laps before the end.

Let me clarify:



I enjoyed the race plenty. But if you're going to convey the excitement of it to the uninitiated and try to generate stronger ratings for subsequent races, you need a little enthusiasm. Sell it. It wouldn't have taken much



And I don't like Cameron's scary Joker smile. Send me Liz Hurley.

It was nice to watch the race in high definition but the main announcer was a little clueless. I watched it later on the computer via my MotoGP subscription and the announcers there were going appropriately nuts with the high level of racing going on. So it was great that CBS covered it but as usual they tend to blow it. And the "Nascar of racing" comment was the most stupid comment I have ever hear about motorcycle road racing.

It can be pretty much summed up when Rossi was passing Stoner on the inside and the cameras had and amazing overhead shot and the announcers were talking about the Americans in 10th and 13th place or that Rossi does not like to fly. Not about the pass. Schwantz and his co-host were having a conversation about the race and about racing, the normal Dorna guys give a play by play of the race.

I think they're fairly effective. I can see how they might be annoying. I've seen the companion print ads; they're pretty good, considering.

Everybody knows that Supercross is the NASCAR of motorcycling.
