For the past 25 years I have advocated featuring our key personalities in the media.
Our best are Stevie, JT, Imprescia, Jeff Harris, Billy Moore, Balough, Dyke, Serrales, Robertson, Sgro and a few others. Rarely do they race against each other, and some are on the beach. How do you emphasize rivalries, personalities and competition, when there is no racing continuity to carry the theme?
Personality development and creating a fan base for our sport's key players is yet another casuality of the bewilderment which emanates from too many classes and organizations.
Obsolete and proud of it
Rivalries are created by a large number of talented people striving to be the best on a level playing field and achieving this by beating the very best....not one or two guys.
Chest thumping is bragging about yourself and trash talking about your competitors every chance you get. This occurs at the bar, in forums like this, and sometimes at race sites. It has hurt the sport immensely and created an image of amateurism and petty finger pointing...and has no place in a true racing environment. To go back to an earlier post, true racing is about keeping your mouth shut and proving your ability on the race course, with humility, respect, and gratitude to your team and the people who work so hard to create a forum for you to race on in the first place.
There may be great rivalries today but they exist in the minds of very few people who actually care....and that is a shame.

And back to this thread.
When T2X became obsolete, that was @ the day Real Offshore Racing ended in USA, IMO.
Thank God There Still Is UIM.
*Those who don´t know what a T2X is doesn´t know more about boatracing than a pig about a satellite.
Rich-keep them stories coming or OSO will become
"just another" site !
Greetings from an Offshore fan 4000 miles East and way more up north than NJ...(like Anchorage, Alaska)
