Go!!!!!! then fall down

While you guys are off having babies and making money, I’ll be keeping an eye on the 2006 MotoGP schedule (which you can now find in my coveted links section.)

The first race of the season was last Sunday and only two things really stood out: Rossi fell down in the first five seconds (also fell the day before in qualifying) and Capirossi took his Ducati (see picture) to first. Nicky Haydn is fast climbing the ranks, which is great, but I like listening to the Italian accents over the Southern ones during the post-race interviews. I mean, those interviews are ridiculous, as they are in all sports coverage. They’re unintelligible in any language. “Why do you think you won?” “Because I kept going faster and stayed ahead of everyone else.”
