Supercross: Will Dungey repeat in 2011?

As the Seattle Seahawks couldn’t hold my attention whilst losing on the road (once again) to the Tampa Bay Bucaneers; (Back on Dec 26th...) GEEZ! Uze meenze duh SEA-CHICKENS still had a chance to claim the Division NOBODY wants to win... Even after losing to the Buc’s on the road. Yet, somewhat shockingly - they won the NFC West Division over the St Louis Rams.

And while I’ve been told repeatedly that the Seahawks are the Milka Duno of the National Football League – after becoming the very first ever team in NFL history to win their division, along with making the playoffs with a losing record. (7-9) Nevertheless, Seattle’s in, after garnering NBC a ‘Mega 12.6 rating for the Nail-biter Sunday night primetime finale...

But back to a different week, when the NFL was asking Milka, Err the Seahawks to park-IT! Did I mention that I think Milkalicious is on Special Assignment for this year’s DAKAR? Hya! But I digress – and thus, I was surprised to bounce into a 2011 AMA Supercross preview show being aired upon CBS – WTF?

2011 Supercross Preview Show
Supercross Legends Jeremy McGrath, Ricky Carmichael, Jeff Emig and Jeff Stanton breakdown the most competitive season ever...

So I watched a bit of it, although I was a bit BUMMED by the Quartet’s ‘O Champions seemingly Dissin’ my Homeboy Ryan Villopoto, as NONE of these former two-wheeler’s included Villopoto in their title pick – claiming that Ryan Flyin’ V just doesn’t have the stamina to last a whole season – being prone to crashing...

As Carmichael, Emig & Stanton all picked Ryan Dungey to repeat as Champion in 2011; while McGrath proclaimed boldly how he never followed the pack – thus he was picking rookie Trey B.T. Canard to pick up the scraps when Chad Reed, James “Bubba” Stewart ‘N Ryan Dungey all beat themselves into the ground while fighting for the crown.

And whilst discussing the trio of upcoming “Standout” rookies; Canard, Jake Weimer & a Player to be named later, (Sorry – but I didn’t catch the third Amigos name) it was noted how preposterous it was that reigning two-time Lights East Champion Christophe Pourcel was without a ride! Which kinda made me think of the current plight ‘O Indy Lights... As we’re still waiting for the FIL Boyz (and Girls) to actually have an impact upon the Big Carz, nee IndyCar; since currently reigning Indy Lights Champion J.K. Vernay is still without a drive for 2011, although I’m hoping he’ll wind-up in the second Conquest Racing seat, thanks in part to his potential Championship bonus from Mazda... Kinda like how “Symone PaginNo” (Simon Pagenaud) did with his Atlantics cheque to become Will Power’s teammate in the waning Champ Car dazes...

As the 2011 ICS season looks likely to be a potential Breakout year for the Indy Lights class with J.R. Hildebrand at Panther, Charlie Kimball at Chip Ganassi’s ‘Seester B-Team. While hopefully Vernay, the Mayor ‘O Hingetown (James Hinchcliffe) and ‘Plowie (Martin Plowman) graduate to the Big Leagues this year...

So, wouldn’t it be nice if Versus did a similar Preview show for the upcoming IndyCar season, with say – Oh I don’t’ know; Hmm? ‘Lil Al, “EMMO,” Booby Ray-X and Rick Mears as the Driver Expert’s panel – instead of running another gauntlet ‘O DannaWho? Promo-show’s...

Meanwhile, I’ll stick with ‘mize Homeboy Ryan Flyin’ V (Villopoto) - who was on track to win the title last year before going down hard while chasing Dungey. While you can check out all the action from the Twenty-eleven season opener from Anaheim, CA live on SPEED at 7PM (PACIFIC) January 8th...
