Sounds like a perfect set up for Bridgestone to show up with exactly the wrong tires. If that happens it will only make it more interesting.

ooops - just realized that's 30C not 30F. Nevermind and carry on gents.

I'm going to say, Race direction gives MM a stern talking too. Slaps the Honda design team with bagel penalty where they are required to provide sliced bagels with fixings to all meetings for a week.
And none of those stolen harder than a Bridgstone hotel breakfast buffet nasty bits either.

I predict somebody will hit one of those monster snakes down there. The snake will be penalized and have to start the race from pit lane.

Martha Stewart will announce she is going to run a Ducati customer team, with Benetton sponsorship. Baby blue and tan plaid. Scones and tea.

I'm going to vote fro Rossi to get on the top step, followed by Cal in second. The three Spaniards will have all narrowly avoided drowning in the ensuing flood.
Race direction will call a flag to flag race, and issue waterwings and flippers.
Stoner will buzz pitlane in a bass boat, towing a barefoot skier.

even if DP's small testicles and resolve come into question. Again.
3 Spainards on the podium and an Italian 4th. Unless a Spainard DNF's.

If it rains it there may be additional interloping on the podium....

As usual, Krop comes through with the story- MM vs. DP Aragon incident investigation by race direction.

Minor slap on the wrist. A penalty point? Small enough that it doesn't affect MM if he "behaves" himself until the end of the season but makes a statement.

..and also Honda stripped of 25 manufacturer points from the win, but instead allowed to keep what the next best Honda of Bautista brought home.

Hey, isn't that the same penalty Dani got in 2006 for crashing into HIS teammate at Estoril?

Oh wait, no it isn't . . .

The only reason MM keeps running into riders in front of him, is that they're too damn slow

I just read that and it's hard to believe they are doing that. Appeasing Puig and Pedrosa maybe?

With each pre-event press conference I become more of a JLo fan. That was some funny shit.
