A sad indictment on our times my friend.

Kenny was well liked over here - he rightful usurped the young pretender Barry and became king because he was better. However, Sheene's charisma allowed him to become the first and only household name in the UK which propelled the sport from the minority to the mainstream....for a while.

I LIKE VALENTINO ROSSI. For the last two decades, he has either been the champion or the runner up on most years. He sure is overly aggressive at times. He sure doesn't give an eff about anything or anyone. He is an Italian, and as I'm a Pastafarian I shall feel a hatred against him for that, but I somehow do not (seriously guys, Italy is cool even tho I haven't been there for ages).

Valentino Rossi is a rascal. But I have been watching this sport for my entire life (I'm 327 y/o) and I have never seen a rawest talent, nor a more spectacular rider to watch on the track (sorry Casey). He is the present and future of the sport and sure as heck he'll win more than 10 titles. He set the bar at a level that no one may be able to reach, ever.

As we are just about to witness his annual crazy Texas ride, I thought I'd share my thoughts about him.

My point is: if you hate this champion, you are not a real fan of this sport.

To anyone that'd like to roast me: keep in mind that I REALLY hope Zarco gets the title this year. And maybe next year too.
Hahaha this was a solid post.

May be a bit of a myth but apparently before he became a household name Carl Fogarty was pulled over and asked if he thought he was Barry Sheene.

I guess it was a standard line back then to all the young kids screaming around on smoky 2 strokes with micron pipes all playing gp racer and trying to get their knee down on every roundabout like me..

And the boppers are just going to get angrier each passing years as their hopes of the promised 10th fade and fade and fade. If they were smart, they'd jump ship to the Justin Bieber camp while he still has some good years ahead.

Oh, the ironing....

Doesn’t it hurt a tiny bit inside that no one will know or care for weeks if you choke on some chicken tandoori and die a lonely death, Rajesh?

Proving my point. Make a light jibe and Fanatic Maggie zings back with threats of violence or wishing death on those not of the faith.

Maggie you were born in the wrong country. You would have flourished in the Taliban. Instead you're just another angry white boy on the internet making impotent threats. Maybe lay off the steroids?
