    I don't get ESPN2, America's funniest Videos is pretty good.

    This just wraps up the whole NASCAR attitude for me. My wife and I have bowled in a Sunday night mixed league for 25 years, and it "used to" be that I could watch the race then get to bowling at 6pm. Now with these damned late starts, I can barely see any of the race some weeks. Get to the bowling alley and every TV in the place is tuned to NFL, so not wanting to create a stir, don't ask for a channel change until the end of CBS football. They change to the ABC affiliate and the next thing I know, it is America's Funniest Videos. Nobody knew what had happened to the race!

    I heard there was a lot of carnage at the end, so can some of you viewers out there fill me in on what happened?

    I think next week I will get a sub for bowling.

    It was the typical Jimmie Johnson show one again. AS soon as it was evident that he was going to win I shut it off and went out. No point in watching the same old thing happen. Good for him though 3 in a row. I just don't care to watch it.
    I can't wait for the truck race next week though.

    I was thinking of starting a Good Job ESPN thread, because I think theyre coverage has been excellent. With them showing the final 30-40 minutes of the race commercial free on most weeks is just excellent. But theyll get theyre asses handed to them for this, and deservedly so. That is ridiculous, and I wonder if the execs at ABC wonder why ratings are down.

    I could have swore that the announcers said, if you are on the west coast or the mountain folks, you could stay right there and continue watching the race. Only those of you on the EAST coast would need to move over to ESPN2. That's what I believe I heard them say, but on my TV it started showing the local news. As I fumbled for the remote to change the channel and watch the rest of the race, I realized that in the last few laps, I must of moved to the EAST coast because I found the race on ESPN2!!!!

    NO, they said if you were on the East Coast or Mtn time you woud have to change. I definately hear it that way.

    Whew!!!!.... and here I was worried I had moved to the East coast! Guess I just misunderstood what they said. I just feel bad for the fans that don't have cable and were not able to switch over and watch the rest of the race.
    And not that there is anything wrong with the East coast, I'm originally from there :)
