Huge ET fan but his answer to the question asking what he did on his weekend off is hilarious. Wonder why the cryptic response to a pretty mundane question. Or he just doesn't give a shit to tell anybody. Anybody else catch that?

I thought it was weird. I know people like that too. They just want to do their thing and stay to themselves about it or get annoyed when people tell other people their business.

He was probably chasing some poon and didn't want to talk about it with the media lol

I think sometimes Eli is spacing out during those things, probably didn't even hear the question right lol

|

I think he missunderstood the question and thought he asked what he is going to do this week or something.

I thought he might have gone hunting. Being that he has sponsors and a fan base he didn't want to talk about it.

Race weekend is racing business, off weekend is my business.

Uh, that mighta been a good first question, not a last question. Inane.

It was strange, but who knows and who cares. What I think is quite stupid is Jamie from moto x pod identifying himself as "darkside" during the press conference. This is a professional sport. Your name isn't darkside, bro.

My thought is he wants his competition to think he's back in Cortez grinding away. Not partaking in a fishing trip on the off weekend.

Years ago, David Bailey was asked,
What do you do in your spare time during the season?
Bailey: Spank my monkey.
What about the off season?
Bailey: Spank my wife, Lisa.

These guys haven't given a shit about pressers for ever, no need to start analyzing them now.

Go for it! Don't let a little thing like fear, or common sense hold you back.

This.

At this point I'm not sure Eli needs to reassure everyone else that he is doing very well and can whoop them all, no matter what he does in his down time.

ask me no questions, ill tell you no lies...

the press dont ask hard questions, the riders rarely say anything out of line..
but lets all give ourselves participation trophies.

dear admin, please spare me your patronizing and oft predictable reply.

Db was joking with jmart. Give the guy a break

7/23/2018 9:24 AM

maybe he matched with a cute chick on Tinder and they went out and she was fat as crap but was really sweet and had a great personality so he took her home and doesn't feel like he needs to explain his actions to anyone.

|

7/23/2018 9:31 AM

Well he couldn't come out and say "I went to the Havasu, did some blow, and had an orgy" this isn't the 90s anymore.

Absolutely. Like the way Emig used to train in secret.

He's got a girlfriend. But I don't blame any rider for keeping them off the radar.

Agree it was awkward. Sounded to me like he might have misunderstood at first. Combine this with someone who isn’t naturallly forthcoming about his personal life to begin with and you get an awkward result. You could tell by his expression after while the other guys were answering that he wished he’d answered it differently.

That said totally agree with the others who commented about the questions being weak. Ask stupid questions and you’re going to get stupid answers.

She's been on camera a few times during SX but she quickly gets out of frame once she realizes.

Oh...that....okay.....

He's most likely thinking "are we here to talk about racing or about my fishing? Cause I'm way better at riding a bike" probably what he wanted to say lol

7/23/2018 12:10 PM

What the hell was his answer?

Yeah. She has been seen on his twitter/instagram at times and on the broadcast in SX. I was starting to wonder if they were still together because I haven't seen her since the last couple rounds of SX, but he would probably prefer it that way.

Can someone post the link to the JMart/Blair presser please?

|

7/23/2018 1:40 PM

Wow those guys look "over it" before the questions even started coming.
