  5. Dovizioso
I know he didn't qualify well but I have a feeling on this one. Hopefully Pedrosa wont get a great start other wise he may check out. But I do not think he can last if he does. I think Casey has the consistency and speed to come from 3rd row and win it!!!

My vision is that Nicky passes Dani late in the race in a last ditch, wobbly, sold out, F*CK YOU Dani you and your manager are such A-holes and this is what the rest of your career's gonna be like---behind me--kind of pass.

And if this comes to fruition I want 25 additional bonus points

Tell me about it, a good source told me that it was going to rain so I figured my pics were going to stick.

Race was pretty boring until Nicky & Dovi were fighting for 3rd in the few laps we got to see it, otherwise, not worth the price of staying up until 2AM in the morning.

What the hell happened to Stoner? I kinda shut the computer off right after Nicky pass the checkered flag.

It's going down the wire I guess. Unlike the real championship which was decided two races ago. Why not have a finale like most regular sports. Give like double points for top three finishers. I'm sure you'd see some bar banging then and people really going for it.
I have to say Nicky was riding hard but Divoso is looking good for next year. I don't know what happened to Stoner but he was just going backwards. Rossi was Rossi once he got past Mighty Mouse yawnn.

Bah, no matter how many points you throw at the pot, I am in 4th place with no chance of getting, well... even to 3rd!


Next year, I'll just give my 20 bucks for the cause but I don't think I'm going to play... as explained before.

Sore looser I know... Bite me!

Man, from the lead to the 3rd in one fell swoop.

Told you I would make my own picks, too bad it cost me. I had a feeling though Stoner was going to step it up. That did happen.

Then was hoping for a late race charge by Lorenzo, no luck.

Then was pulling for Hayden to pass Dovi so I could at least get one position right, again I couldn't catch a break.

Ok, last race coming up! I hope to at least get second place!

You are a good man and true to your word. You could have sandbagged it and took home first place.

Dammit MisterMike, why must you get up from lounge chair at the wrong time and jolt me back from my attempt at a joke?
