Pocono Chat in Unreal Time

Took the liberty ofputting this up. I won't have computer access during the race, so I'll have to comment by Blackberry.

Who will win? I believe Smoke, starting that close to the front, will be there at the end.

176 comments:

  1. Hey Gene- great minds...I just posted 2 min after you...LOL

    I'll delete mine.

    Blackberry comments whoa! impressive. You and Beagle are hampered this week.

    ReplyDelete
  2. I am also miffed about the pit thing too, Kristen.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Ok anyone else completely OFFENDED by the fact Phil Parsons is reporting for TNT on PIT ROAD. The dude has cars in this race - well sort of - for at least the first 20 laps anyway. If that is not a conflict in interest I have no idea what is.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hey Tez - I moved the comment here...LOL

    ReplyDelete
  5. I'm doing my anti-rain dance but it looks pretty dark out there.

    ReplyDelete
  6. klvalus, you gotta Miller light going?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Way to early to be drinking Dwindy! Plus I dont drink that swill - only in VL!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Raindrops keep falling on my head...sigh

    ReplyDelete
  9. Rusty works some races with his cars in them. Worse than Phil, to me.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Okay, if they pit until this cloud blows over will they be allowed to top off their tanks or?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Nice rain dance, Dwindy! You were doing the booty dance when you should have been doing the Running Man...LOL

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hell Gene, I'm part Cherokee too!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Gene; Rusty doesn't prowl pitlane asking the CC's why their car ain't working, he's tucked away in the booth, same with Brad Daugherty.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh oh... Klvalus, there's your dude! Ahem, our dude! BTW, how come we're tied for dead last?

    ReplyDelete
  15. EXACTLY Tez - Rusty is in the booth giving his "opinions" not actually out on pit road gathering info from other teams. Its totally different in my mind.

    What if it were Rick Hendrick going up to Addington asking what his fuel mileage is for late in the race?

    You could make argument Parsons cars aren't competitive but I wouldnt want to be telling anything to him if I were the other teams.

    ReplyDelete
  16. They may not be on pit lane, but I have heard them both ask questions to drivers during the races. And Rusty's #1 driver could certainly benefit from ANY info.

    Perhaps Phil will get some tips from the CCs on when to start and when to park? lol

    ReplyDelete
  17. Kurt getting a lot of play on TV these days...

    Dunno, we will have to ask Tez - Helio must have been wrecked out of the IRL race. Who did you have for the second race?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think Brad is a better argument than Rusty - Brad has Marcos but Rusty has no current driver in Cup at least.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm against it because there has to be better pit reporters than Parsons. Wendy V, or anybody from the Truck series... except for Phil and Mikey.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I needed Will Power... Oh well. Concrete Carl held up his end of the bargain though.

    ReplyDelete
  21. You guys quit pickin' on those poor mistreated (and misinformed?) announcers.

    I know, I know, they just don't stack up to DW and Digger, but what are ya gonna do, Gene...

    ReplyDelete
  22. yes, Helio crashed out last night. He and Mario Moraes tangled when Mario's spotter appeared to not tell him quick enough that Helio was looking outside.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Scary fire in the IRL race last night. The rescue crew was pathetic! They usually are the best in the world, but last night they looked like the Keyston Kops!

    Switching back and forth between IRL and NNS last night, and the IRL was waaaayyy more entertaining!

    ReplyDelete
  24. and Power needed a splash and go at the end since he pitted some 10 laps earlier than expected.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Someone give me a short list of the start n' park drivers. I may swap Denny for one of them before the green flag! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  26. OMG - 2+ hours to dry...I am going to take a break! Hope to catch you guys later...

    ReplyDelete
  27. I concur, Gene, the Indycar race was more exciting....looks like the oval package still works since it was like a mini-Daytona with all the drafting and side-by-side racing.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Tez... the first couple of replays, it looked like Moraes' car got airborne. Then the replay from head on, you could see it didn't. Did it seem like he jumped to you at first?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Gene, the IndyCar race was interesting. Your girl finished 2nd...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Haha. Her highest finish ever! Last night was the first time I saw footage of her alleged 'win' in Japan.

    ReplyDelete
  31. good battle for the lead between the jet dryers and they go to break, what's up with THAT?!

    ReplyDelete
  32. A win is a win...

    Have they said anything about what's coming behind this cell? Another storm, or a twister?

    ReplyDelete
  33. not really, Gene....I thought he just moved up a touch and Helio got into the wall before hitting Mario, kinda like the Kyle/Denny deal in the All-Star race only Helio was at his back wheels *shrugs*

    ReplyDelete
  34. Gotta say that Young Gun commercial with Kyle and Ryan with mullets is hilarious!!

    Burton was pretty funny in his interview saying he had Gordon there on the pace laps.

    Ok back to chores...will be around.

    Oh, so Tez did Danica finish 2nd cuz all the best racers crashes yesterday?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Joey looks like he's getting younger. Must be his diet...

    ReplyDelete
  36. SPEED BEAGLE....here's a free site with the race on live.....

    http://www.justin.tv/slapnut_v10

    Plenty of other sports on justin.tv

    ReplyDelete
  37. Kristen; no, actually, Danica had the 2nd best car out there. In the first stint, she had the best car and was chasing the leaders down but Ryan improved his car enough over the race to have the best car from about halfway on.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Gene; you have more channel options on that nascarfanz site than JTV now...NASCAR doesn't like JTV, lol

    ReplyDelete
  39. wow, the track looks dry already...go the wind!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Tez... that's what I thought of also... Kyle and Denny. The guy never touched Helio, and the brake pedal was right there for Helio, and Kyle, to use.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hey Dwindy I had Turkey Burgers yesterday! What are you sayin??

    ReplyDelete
  42. Read between the lines! The only way to eat Turkey (beyond Thanksgiving) is Turkey Tacos! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  43. Gooble gooble...!
    Having chicken legs tonight...oy! what does that say about me!?


    NIIICE line by Bowyer and the bridesmaid!! LOL

    Track drying up nicely...

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'll bet the humidity is really up there now. Here on the gulf coast it must be 90% right now... Wonderful. One of these days I'm movin' to the desert.

    Chat with y'all a little later.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Turkey kabobs, turkey soup, turkey jerkey, roast turkey, turkey sausage, smoked turkey, turkey bacon, turkey sandwich...

    ReplyDelete
  46. LOL - Hey CR...turkey jerky is what I think Dwindy was talking about!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hey everyone! Looks like the race will start w/in the next 15 minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  48. What a sorry group of announcers...

    ReplyDelete
  49. No problem CR! As for the announcers, must be the rain delay!

    ReplyDelete
  50. If NASCAR quits dickering around, we'll have a race!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Here we go again! Patching the track during the race! WTF!

    I suppose it hasn't rained there since the last race? No one noticed that hole weeping until race day?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Can I change to Denny before the green flag?

    ReplyDelete
  53. CR, Tez, and Jon... I've cut way back on MW and hope to give it up cold turkey. I'll try and give all my NASCAR buds all my good weapons and stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Athens has changed her Cup pick to Denny Hamlin. Check the Trifecta.

    ReplyDelete
  55. what the heck is MW?? Why are you all cutting back on Mikey Waltrip? LOL

    Woot cars on the track!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'll switch my pick to Tony Stewart.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Mafia Wars...facebook game, Kristen :P

    ReplyDelete
  58. LOL @ K... Good luck with your rehab Gene!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Haha....Now Kris knows what's up when one of her patients says that he's addicted to MW. Before she may have told him to stop watching Speed TV...LOL

    ReplyDelete
  60. LOL!

    Kahne looking strong early.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Most my clients are W.O.W addicts - lots of Silicon Vally geeks around!

    Kurt sliding back - dang too bad I cant get his radio today for some reason - I am sure it will be entertaining!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Dale Jr. is sliding back as well.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I feel bad now, Han. Take Denny back and I'll keep Tony. It was a knee-jerk decision and I wasn't thinking about your pick.:)

    ReplyDelete
  64. This is one track where you can really see the yaw on these cars, crabbin it down the straightaway!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I think I was too late to switch drivers anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  66. And we have a winner in the Start and Park Sweepstakes: Start and Park Joe Nemechek!!! It's taken him all of 13 laps to park and declare himself done for the day.

    ReplyDelete
  67. OK, I'll bite... what's W.O.W.? World of War?

    As far as MW, I'm in the denial fase. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hey! It's not the end of the race... Competition Caution??? That means there's no GWC at Pocono?

    ReplyDelete
  69. woo Kurt is pissed! I finally got the radio. "pushing its brains out" - problem all weekend.

    we definitely picked the wrong driver Dwindy! LOL thank god I have Hamlin for the fantasy league

    ReplyDelete
  70. World of Warcraft...good guess CR!

    I think we are going to lose Kurts radio due to profanity soon.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Kenseth and Biffle took two tires--it'll be interesting to see if this works.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I LOVE THAT COMMERICAL!

    I got bangs and Newman getting his nails done...too funny.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Yea, that's what I was thinking K. There was a good South Park episode on WOW. Oh, and I meant PHASE! lol

    ReplyDelete
  74. Valve stem cap missing on the RF - pulling Kurt back to the pits. He just went off on a tirade of Fbombs!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Mullet Nation, population, us. LOL Great commercial.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Geat drafting work with Turkey Jerkey on Burton. LOL, Kevin is still one of my favs.

    ReplyDelete
  77. It looks like two tires is NOT the way to go, as Kenseth is going backwards.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I thought Jr Nation WAS Mullet Nation?

    ReplyDelete
  79. I thought NASCAR Nation was?

    I have a reverse mullet...so cant be Jr Nation

    ReplyDelete
  80. Sorry to hear about your laptop, Gene. Was it insured by Lloyd's of London?lol

    ReplyDelete
  81. Harvick seems to be better on the long runs, as are his teammates Burton and Bowyer.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Reverse mullet? I heard people do those to cover forehead tats!

    ReplyDelete
  83. hearing from Kurts radio that tires are an issue - RF showing cords on everyone - saying cuz track is green but could be a problem.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Yea, I got a big red 8 on my forehead Dwindy, didnt ya know?!?! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  85. Just put a ONE in front of the EIGHT and you won't have to cover it up anymore!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Yea not good Jon...he is dangerously close to going on another radio tirade. Should be fun!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Oops you meant Kyle, they are reeling in lapped cars too!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Got the TV feed on the computer. Thanks, Tez for the link.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Kristen, love it when KB goes on a rant!

    ReplyDelete
  90. You can watch it on KBnation.com too SB!
    We will keep you in the loop somehow...

    ReplyDelete
  91. KB's got a mirrorfull of Bowyer! And Bowyer just took the lead!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Kurt is short pitting...along with the 00

    ReplyDelete
  93. K- at least you don't have a big red 666 on your forehead, like Kyle has behind his left ear. (just a rummor I started today) LOL

    ReplyDelete
  94. This comment has been removed by the author.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I recanted, SB. I wasn't thinking. Han has Denny. Sorry about that.

    ReplyDelete
  96. well seems like everyone is pitting so guess not short pit now

    ReplyDelete
  97. LMAO CR! I'll look for it at Sonoma...

    ReplyDelete
  98. Klvalus, I went through the sets to sign up on Kurt's site, got to the radio and I guess he bombed himself off the air!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Radio still working Dwindy - just spotty now since he made all the adjustments and is not in traffic. Keep it on - you'll hear it!

    ReplyDelete
  100. lol- Looks like the young guns wen't to NoCal too!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Yea, how come Gene didnt tell us he was playing cards with Kasey, Denny and Carl??

    ReplyDelete
  102. Kristen, better hope a caution comes out--Kurt's about to go a lap down.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I also see Dwindy logged into KBNation! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  104. Bowyer's about to put Ragan a lap down.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Ragan has had a crap season...maybe Melissa can get him on the right track at Sonoma.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Kristen, maybe she'll do the same to Edwards. And wasn't it a couple of years ago he nearly made the Chase?

    ReplyDelete
  107. Speaking of Melissa, I wonder if she ever downloaded her camera card from Monterey? I bet she got some cool pics.

    ReplyDelete
  108. yes, Ragan was on fire late in 2008, Jon

    ReplyDelete
  109. taking a nap now. all the excitement I can handle.lol

    ReplyDelete
  110. Yeah, this is typical Pocono--a snoozefest.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I noticed the pit stall in front of Harvick's--it was that of a start and park team. It's going to be HUGE late in the race.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Another speeding ticket for JPM...

    ReplyDelete
  113. JPM was busted for speeding on pit road.

    ReplyDelete
  114. jon- I have two words regarding Carl getting back on track

    VOODOO DUCK

    ReplyDelete
  115. Yep, our Trooper Taylor popped him!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Duh, I saw that after I posted my previous comment!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Another Penske pit road mistake...not good day today

    ReplyDelete
  118. Kenseth's about to go a lap down.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Carl has to personally apologize to Katie for trash talking about her Tony before she'll relinquish her voodoo duck.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Well, here's my fantasy picks;

    Denny
    Burton
    Newman
    Hornish

    ReplyDelete
  121. uh, do I have to personally apologize to Katie for trash talking too? =)

    ReplyDelete
  122. I've got Denny, Clint, Joey and Sam

    ReplyDelete
  123. WooHoo Kristen! 2 front runners. You're looking good!

    ReplyDelete
  124. Kristen- no, Tony took care of that himself at the Daytona 500 in 2007. He and Kurt can deny all they want, but there's one picture of Kurt after the hauler meeting where you can see the blend line of the makeup.

    ReplyDelete
  125. there ya go Dwindy! Fbombs have started...

    ReplyDelete
  126. LOL SB - I am sure I told you guys about when I finally got Jr's autograph the 1st time - I came back to #2 hauler shaking and crew asked if Tony had punched me...LMAO!!

    ReplyDelete
  127. I'm listening to Juan...swapping to Kurt, lol

    ReplyDelete
  128. OK friends, I'm recording the rest of the race. I'm going outside, mow the lawn, tend the garden, and just be useful. lol Have a great week, and catch ya later! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  129. That phantom caution for debris strikes again!

    ReplyDelete
  130. have a good afternoon, CR :)

    ReplyDelete
  131. WOOHOO! Harvick in the lead!!!

    ReplyDelete
  132. Jon's YELL just woke me up!LOL

    ReplyDelete
  133. RCR very impressive today...

    ReplyDelete
  134. Why doesn't TNT (and Fox and ESPN/ABC for that matter) do the split screen during commercials like the Indy 500?

    ReplyDelete
  135. jon- as I understand it, Indy Car pays ABC to broadcast the races, so ABC can dictate how the coverage is presented.

    ReplyDelete
  136. I gotta run and do some errands - hope to be back in time for end - if not have great rest of your Sunday everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  137. Tez, it just makes sense to do the split screen.

    SB, since Indy is the biggest event on the Indy Car schedule, that's probably why they go split screen.

    ReplyDelete
  138. someone will top off and gamble....Carl probably.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Smoke and Big Daddy, thank you for listening to me, lol

    ReplyDelete
  140. Tez, you were right--Carl did top off, along with several others towards the back.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Caution for Jamie Mac going into the wall, courtesy of David Ragan.

    ReplyDelete
  142. The ones that topped off took themselves out of the race.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Everyone here will be very happy to know that I'm currently in first place in my Yahoo NASCAR fantasy league.

    And I owe it all to you!

    ReplyDelete
  144. Not much Chris, what's up with you?

    ReplyDelete
  145. maybe not, Jon...everyone in front of them pitted.

    ReplyDelete
  146. This is gonna get mighty interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  147. Tez, I think you're right--they stayed out.

    ReplyDelete
  148. But Hamlin, Busch, and Harvick are stout and I see those three moving to the front quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  149. How did Tony get to 3rd and Denny go to 16th?

    Chris, how many other people are playing?LOL

    ReplyDelete
  150. There was a caution with 41 laps to go and Tony topped off. Then there was another caution immediately after the restart and the guys in front had to pit. Tony stayed out.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Looking to be a good points day for the Beagle.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Jon... quite a few actually. I just go with the hottest driver and voila!

    I have a new caption contest celebrating the kiss that was Dustin Hoffman and Jason Bateman over at the Chump.

    Have at it.

    http://sportschump.net/2010/06/06/caption-contest-celebrates-dustin-hoffman-jason-bateman-and-the-kiss-that-sent-shockwaves-through-the-nba-finals/3857/

    ReplyDelete
  153. How close could that be? Where's Han?lol

    ReplyDelete
  154. Chris, I'll be sure to check it out!

    Off to do my GBU. Later everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  155. How can Kyle say it was uncalled for and then turn around and say they were after the same spot? UHHHH!

    ReplyDelete
  156. Beverly, I think it was entirely of Joey's doing. He tried to cut in front of Kevin and he hadn't cleared him. Kevin would have given him room early in the race and given him the position. But with two laps to go, no way.

    ReplyDelete
  157. What a crash on the backstretch! Kahne nearly went out of the racetrack!

    ReplyDelete
  158. NOW I'm off to do my GBU. Later everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  159. I'll just keep my thoughts to myself!lol

    Have a great week everybody!♥

    ReplyDelete
  160. Kevin not at fault. Held his line with 2 laps to go. AJ, that's another story. Looked like blocking to me.

    ReplyDelete
