Kosuke gets censored


DAMM!

I know its still way too early into the season for this, but until the elder court jester, Mr. Paul Tracy makes his presence felt, Kosuke Matsuura gets my vote of interview of the year…

And although I suppose it had to happen… I can’t recall if Janet Jackson had to pay an undisclosed fine for her wardrobe “malfunction?”

Yet in the theoretical vacuum off squeaky clean “PC Friendly” television on ABC’s “Family” of networks… (Can you say Disney?) They’re most definitely hoping for “Goo-goo” baby talk…

Yet it seems to be a common source of discussion that is the world of corporate media speak vs. neutering driver personalities. As I guess we’re expected to NOT use foul language, cuss or show our emotions

And is it just me, or how FUCKING frustrating is it trying to figure out just exactly which network is hosting either the Champ Car or (GASP!) IRL races…

I mean is it on ABC? NOPE! ESPN? NOPE, ESPN2? Well it was there last week but now it’s on ESPN! NOPE it’s on NBC. I mean as Robin Miller has pointed out, how does either Open Wheel series plan to build any new fan base?

In previous years the media actually published the season previews prior to the first race. And Champ Car was even smart enough to publish the TV schedule for its fans to follow along. Never mind actually televising both days of qualifying…

So needless to say, I’m rooting for “Kazuki” to win the pole at Indy this year, so he get’s another interview. Better yet, wouldn’t it be hilarious to have him WIN the Indy 500…

“Go Kosuke!”
