Cool Live Race Coverage

How was the pay per view race coverage yesterday? Was not sure it would be good enough to pay for but I do miss it.

I got on late but watched the whole thing. IMO it was very good. Mike Y did a GREAT job of narrating the event. He had good info and lots of energy talking. When you say not sure if it was worth paying cracks me up LOL. $7.00 to watch something you like live? Are you kidding me? Could it be better , Yes. If you think $7.00 is to much or going to break the bank then you really are not into it. We are talking about the cost of a burger for watching people risk there lives hanging out there $hit live !!!! Or you could fly down there and get a room and a car and pay $5.00 a beer or soda to watch the same thing. Bottom line is if you REALLY like fast boats than its a deal even if the production isn't Wide World of sports caliber.

I was lucky enough to have gotten a room for the whole event, its been worth it every year so far weather was perfect. I will have to stream the key west races though. what team flipped. I managed to miss it somehow.

90% good signal I thought it was well worth it, Mike did a great job announcing. Great first turn by Jay and Billy.

Well said Randy, I whined at first because I thought it should be free to watch. But times have changed and I understand. Mike is a great addition. While Stan Lane has a commanding voice I think he lacks first hand knowledge. But I give a A for effort. I certainly don't mind paying the price of a fattening Starbucks special coffee to watch boat racing.

Was Stan commenting? When we saw him in MI City he stated he was retiring and Menner, OH was his last race.
