Yeah, I had to take my wife to the ER in San Jose due to a kidney stone. Was there two hours, got some pain meds, and was sent on our way. The total bill was $17,000.

C'mon guys, Lenny has had plenty of chances here. Give it a rest. And Grendel is Michael Rigdon.

Yep. Grandfathered in when they changed the rules. Nice guy but I'm not sure why he keeps going to races.

Just trying to save you $120 a month, your Achilles, and back, bro. Good luck with your limp wrists!

Do you understand the purpose of a kipping pull-up? To tell people how many pullups you can do? SLAP tears? I could go one for a while about the idiocy of CF, but that's not what this thread is about. Glad someone included a pic of Jamie Eason, though. ... more »

I would guess that your coach is thinking this will increase your wrist flexibility for racking the bar on cleans, front SQUATs, and C/J.......but that is usually a tricep issue for most people.

You are making assumption they wing. Do you think the only way for a rider to make money is the purse?

Reply to A Chase style shakeup makes sense 5/8/2015 3:02 PM

If you don't want the sport to grow, you don't want the riders to be more successful. I thought that was a pretty simple concept to grasp.

Right, but those are two small changes in 20 years.

"Joe Blow" equals the 10th place guy, 13 races in? Maybe the example you gave, Justin Barcia, does in fact keep it together to just make top 10s, and is racing at the end of the year.

This is sort of off-topic, but yeah, outside of RCH and a handful of others, not many riders/teams think outside the box when it comes to sponsorship.

They won't release real attendance numbers, but I do know there is some brainstorming going on as far as if changes are needed. Sports in general are driven by TV dollars these days, and just the couple of TV ratings that Matthes mentioned Monday aren't ... more »

I hope I never see you post about how the privateers don't make enough money, then. Some of you guys are like fans of indie bands who then become popular, too scared that SX will "sell out". Change the points structure, add interest, improve racing.

Even more rounds in NASCAR. More opportunity for "bad luck" to happen which keeps them out of the Chase.

Reply to A Chase style shakeup makes sense 5/7/2015 9:14 PM

My favorite reply in this thread is the one that tried to say that NASCAR isn't more technologically advanced than SX. Say the points are reset so that the top 10 are one point apart from each other (three point bonus to 1st), top 10 enter the SX Chase ... more »

Works well for NASCAR

Every sport has playoffs. How would that not make the series more exciting?

Mercedes is one of the hottest women on the planet. I don't think she can do what Dianna does.
