HA maybe so sandman. I do remember getting a bit tired of "let battle commence! " as well. I too enjoy M3 more these days. Marky Mark is like the Yankees back in the 60's...just too darn good. Sucked watching Dovi crash.

I've thought for a few years that M3 has been the best watching. Skill, talent, balls, sneakiness... and a big grid!

Nice to see Cal take silver yesterday though... he's been on his arse way too many times again this season.

I could really feel Lorenzo's absence from this race. It would have added another dimension and maybe we could have gone to Philip Island with no champion. Oh well, on any given Sunday, you just never know...

"Bologna Bullets"
"Marvelous Marc"
"Majestic Martin"
"Classy Crutchlow"
"Sizzling Suzuki"
"Fantastic Fabio"
blah, blah, yadah, yadah

I feel it's reaching a point where Carmelo Ezpeleta is gonna tell 'em to STFU!!!!
Nascar doesn't do this anymore, because sometimes they included sponsors in their nick names.

Very boring, only driver name and race number allowed.

Perhaps a middle ground is the way to go, but I do miss it when the commentators for NASCAR had less do's and don'ts in their scripting.

OMG, Zarco looked like he could have taken flight. I couldn't believe how far and how fast he skidded in his leathers.
