NBCSN ‘Safety-blitzes Dakar TV Show...

Yeah I know, we’re all supposed to just be focusing upon the happiness of sunny skies, rainbows, bunnies & oh so cute puppy dogs... But I’m getting just a ‘Wee bit peeved over A-L-L of this preachin’ to duh choir bull-hockey...

Said it before and will say it again; I certainly hope the Peacock lite’s atrocious handling of broadcasting the Dakar highlighted coverage in the middle of the night; Err morning isn’t any indication of its true feelings towards motorsports - or how it’ll treat Indy Cars in the coming years, as I find it all to be very ESPN Douche-like! I mean its bad enough that the first two airings began at 2:30AM, then shifted to 2AM and I’ve been playing follow the Dakar around the rosy everyday; BUTT!

Last Wednesday evening I ran across two listed Dakar programs, one at 9:30PM and one at 11PM; Pacific-time respectively; Huh? Otay I’ll check out the early show which gee Wally, guess what? Was interrupted by the new NFL salivating $tar Spangled $undays program which ran 10mins LATE and thus the Dakar was magically captured already in progress, giving a 30-second tease before squeezing in the all important commercial break; WTF? As we missed the entire opening Bikes section as I just sat there shaking my head; SHEISA!

I mean if comca$t committed say half-as-much energy as it does to brainwashing us with its never ending self-promotionalization towards promoting the Indy Car Series; HELL! Say may be 1/5th, 1/8th, 10th or even 16thThen “Holy smoke” people might actually tune-in? Or how about at the very least they run at least one motorsports tease for the upcoming F1 & IndyCar seasons during the Dakar coverage which is currently slotted in the same time zones as Jack LaLannne juicers, George Forman grills and Chuck ‘N Christies Totally Fit Jim infomercials are running nonstop...

I mean there’s a pretty strong undercurrent about being all bright ‘N sparkly right now, yet how long did I hear about how miserable the TV ratings were last year and how they need to be fixed, yet it appears NOBODY’s willing to put their money where their mouths are, eh? Oh Never Mind; Ooh! Look at that double rainbow. Uhmmm, sprinkles...
