MAC the Knife

Otay, so I wasn’t going to watch anymore of that “Roundy Round” CRAP… And technically speaking the Mexico City Busch Series race was on a permanent road circuit. Yet I admit it’s pretty funny watching them “Good ‘Ol boys” wrestle 3,400lb behemoths both right and left…

So for a little lunchtime entertainment I surfed around the dial until landing on ESPN2’s race coverage. This should be interesting with only 16 laps to go and a host of Road Course “Ringers” filling in for the associated RASSCAR teams, with such luminaries as Scott Pruett, Boris Said, Adrian Fernandez, Michele Jourdain Jr and Juan Pablo Montoya.

And MAC Montoya was on a mission… Coming from 19th to 4th in just a handful of laps. Then MAC made a brilliant pass on Nextel Cup regular Denny Hamlin before another caution flag flew…

On the restart, MAC snuck past Said for second place with 9 laps to go… And then MAC got GREEDY! MAC decided to PUNT race leader and fellow teammate Pruett out of the way…

Then coming back from commercial break number 459, Dr. Jerry Punch waxed eloquently about how MAC was the second coming of Open Wheel drivers by comparing him to legends including AJ Foyt, Mario Andretti, Al Unser Sr. and “Little Al.” YUCK!!! Vomit…. MAC ain’t NO legend (except in his mind, eh?) At this point I simply could NOT stomach watching the few remaining laps and went for a walk instead…
