Ratings? We Got Your Red Hot Rating Here! Read All
Yeah, I know I’m woefully Behind as Always Here
on Ye Isle ‘O Nofendersville Mateys. But Y’all try having to paddle the Canoe
over to the Mainland to get a Newspaper that’s several Days Old! Not to mention
trying to not dump Ye Groceries out on the way back, Hya!
As I know, I really need to just let this go,
But! Since others on Ye Blogosphere are Bangin’ on about the virtues of Peacock
and Kevin Lee, then I feel compelled to offer my Opposing views…
One of the things I Hate most in our
Capitalistic Society is the Corporate doublespeak we’re constantly Bathed in.
Like c’mon Indy Cars Numero Uno Puffed Shirt Mark Miles, who Always Struts
round telling us How Ratings are going thru the Ceiling for IndyCar, Blah Blah
Then don’t Y’all just Love How “They” Bury their
collective Heads in the Sand with Thar Tailfeathers in the Air singing Falalalalalah,
I Cannot Her You when their vaunted
Since now I’ve figured out where Marshall Pruett’s
weekly Podcasts are Hiding and that there’s actually a Play Button that’s
Screen Reader Friendly… I’ve started listening again weekly. And was Amused Hearing
Marshall note during one of His recent The Week In IndyCar episodes How He’d
tried looking several times for Any Numbers upon the Peacock Only Toronto
Think Marshall said He’d checked show biz(dot)com?
But they only post figures for shows that get Over 200,000 viewers, and the
IndyCar Toronto Race Never Showed Up. Peep Peep, Crickets!
Meanwhile, like I’ve said before and will keep
saying. If you’re paying extra Dinero for Streaming, then shouldn’t you be
getting your Money’s Worth? And instead of having the Backup lead Announcer
Kevin The Werewolf! Lee filling in, you should be Hearing Leigh Diffey leading
the Call! As Kevin is Not a Great lead Announcer contrary to those on Ye
Blogosphere! As how can I say this nicely? Uhm, Kevin’s Falsetto is just
Horribly Unbelievable, and He should just stick to being a Pit Reporter instead…
All of which only makes me even more Happy
listening to the IndyCar Radio Network instead! Which if you’re Blind like
Mwah, “Paints” a far superior “Pictuer” than TV does…
Yes, I understand that IndyCar Stupidly agreed
to one race being exclusively on Peacock, But! Seriously Comcast? Three measly
Hours of Law and Order or Chicago PD Re-runs are More profitable than airing a
live IndyCar race? Then Houston, we’ve Definitely Got A Problem! Not to mention
once again Hosing our IndyCar Fans Up North Eh!
How ‘bout that Miles Rowe!
Otay, if I’m gonna Pile on Indy Cars, then I suppose
I also need to acknowledge when the “Powers to Be” do something Right or good!
Which I also learned via Pruett’s aforementioned Podcast.
As Marshall noted that several Fans Up North
Eh! In TO’, aka Toronto along wit Himself Had noticed Force Indy Deckles’ on
Myles Rowe’s #22 Pabst Racing Services racecar.
Noting that El Capitano’, nee RP’, aka Roger
Penske who’d anonymously given Rowe’s Go Fund Me page a $200,000 Donation earlier
this year! With Myles Hoping He’d be able to complete His U.S. F2000 season after
creating the page since He Didn’t have any Funding to pay for His ride.
Pruett casually mentioned how RP” had just told
Rowe to keep doing Good Things “race wise” and it’d work out. As Penske has now
(rightly) apparently picked up the remaining portion of Funding Myles needs to finish
the season. Which is Great since Myles has been battling for the Championship
all season long.
As Rowe has scored three Pole positions and won
five races to date. And not only leading the Points standings much of the season,
is currently the Points leader with just the final three rounds remaining at
Portland over September 2-4.
Rowe has reportedly been having a Battle Royale
with Cape Motorsports Michael D’Orlando, whom roe leads 345-323. While Rowe’s teammate
Jace Denmark is third with 322 points.
Ferrari Melts in French Heat…
started out as a very good race at Le Castellet’s Circuit Paul Ricard, France.
With la Scuderia’s Charles Leclerc on Pole position ahead of Red bull’s Max Verstappen
quickly went “Pear Shaped” for Ferrari!
withstood Verstappen’s challenge when the lights went Green and seemed to be in
control of the race. As the Monegasque driver’s Ferrar’s High Downforce package
seemed to be keeping the Red Bull at bay thru the Twisty’ bits. Yet Leclerc
threw it away during a Millisecond’s lack of concentration, spinning on His own
and totally Blamed Himself for Crashing into the Tyre barrier at Turn 11 on lap
it seemed like the race became another Snoozer, since Sky Sports Talking Headz’
just began prattling on about anybody besides Max Headroom’, nee Maximilian’,
ergo Verstappen who was cruising to another victory, Ho Hum!
Verstappen scored His seventh win of the season and 27th Grands Prix
win Overall. Tying Him with the legendous’ Wee Scot, nee JYS, aka Sir Jackie
Stewart! As Verstappen’s in some pretty rare company now, and He seems like
He’s just getting “Warmed Up!” Could this be the new Schumacher, Yawn!
the end of the race was totally chaotic! And I’m a Wee Bitamyte’ surprised I
cannot find anything on the Intrawoods’ (internet) about the Farcical Ferrari
Pit Strategy employed upon Carlos Sainz, Jr.
Spaniard seemed destined to finish third before Ferrari told Him to Box box
Box! Right in the middle of His fighting Sergio Perez for the final Podium
dropped down to P9 and could only get back to fifth, while Perez and George
Russell tussled Ah-Mighty over the final Podium spot, which I totally believe
that Sainz would have claimed, even with His 5 second penalty for an Unsafe
those who still don’t think Racing Drivers are Athletes, it was amazing Hearing
How Hard both Leclerc and Sainz were Breathing due to the Heat, Excessive
G-Forces and Oh Yeah, driving at some Gory 150-200mph while talking on their In
For which I totally agreed with Sainz who said repeatedly I don’t Understand! When being told to come to Pitlane for a second Pitstop…
