Surely, if there's no TV coverage, then there can be no AMA spoilers, right? Nothing to spoil...

We're covering trees falling in deserted forests, too.

Earlier today reigning MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo, who also missed the German round through injury, confirmed that he will return this weekend.

These guys are made of different stuff than mere mortals.

Because who wouldn't want to race the corkscrew with a broken collarbone?

Actually, turn 3 collects more bodies than the corkscrew.

The idea of DP and JLo riding this weekend makes me nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. I'm more concerned that they don't reinjure themselves. It's all Marquez's fault.

!%$#!!#@&!!

CRAP!

But there is some terrific alternative SpeedTV programming on Sunday pm.

4:00 to 4:30 Dumbest Stuff on Wheels (a MUST see for the braindead)

9:00 to 11:00 Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant (remember this in the SPEED channel.)


So you see they just HAD to scrap any silly AMA motorcycle racing to broadcast those very important events . WTF!!

Well, that's not much different from ESPN highlighting poker as a fantastic spectator sport. Our idea of sports in this country is pretty fucked up sometimes!

edit: Rossi will win this weekend.
