I am always bummed when Nicky crashes out or runs wide or gets pushed off the track somewhere. I know he isn't going to win or even podium, but I am always hoping to see a decent result.
Cal crashing out meant one less podium contender and that is always a let down, especially so early in the race.
Seeing Colin Edwards circulating in the top ten was pretty good though, even if it was a sign of the attrition in the race.
Being silly now: if I were Honda, I would be sending special parts Bautista's way with instructions to ride as close to Rossi as possible at all times.
