Win it or bin it: Stoner to win 100 pts.
I saw that. Isn't that like ..cheating? The nerve of some people. :D

(That same exact bet got me the round win last week.)

Re: 2011 R12 Indianapolis Race Topic ** Spoilers**

Here is a high-res photo of Stoner that weekend, with a similar “light-shadow” by the down-side puck (and a clear shot of his other puck.) As I see it, the puck is all the way down, and the shine is just in front of the puck – shining across his knee and onto the ground – probably through the tank/d...

Re: MotoGP Testing Limits

Yeah – the “knowledgeable individual” demand had me tentative, as I’m one of the least knowledgeable individuals on this site. (But I can copy-paste with the very best of’em!)

And Albert – I’ll take your best guess over most, any day.

I like the highly variant national anthem renditions, but of course it’s very hit-or-miss.

Perhaps an acquired taste – like Real Ale – or cigars - or extreme metal.

Re: 2011 MotoGP Prediction Contest Round 11 - Indianapolis

I know Stoner has had issues with Indy, and has said flat-out he does not like the track, and has even hinted against trying overly hard there, because it’s ~too dangerous~; but when I saw 24:1 odds for him just now (worst than any of the top 10) – I just had to wreck that. Stoner – 100 for the win....
