Should the Speed Channel change its name to...

...the Wind Tunnel Channel?

All Dave Despain, all the time.



You can just see the thin sheen of perspiration on mcbear's forehead as he thinks about it. We'd never hear from the man again.

Could Teutone step back from the edge?

SPEEDtv.com - The Online Motorsports Authority | WindTunnel | Catch Dave Despain and guests every Sunday at 9pm Eastern! | Wind Tunnel, tunnelheads, bobblehead, fired up, talk, Miller

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

I'll take Despain over all of the incessant NASCAR drivel. It's a strain for those dolts to fill up all of the air time they've been allotted. Idiocy.

Yeah, apparently dick pill companies spend fortunes with them, and their target market is NASCAR d-bags.

That channel is almost unwatchable for my 9 year old, because of the commercials. How fucked up is that...

LOL...not really. He doesn't mind the dick pill and genital herpes ads as much as I do.

Despain and F1 is all I watch on Speed. His knowledge and insightful musings are amazing.

If I had a kid I would make him or her watch horror flicks 24/7 and eat candy eye balls. Honestly if I had a kid I think I could do a really neat science experiment, document it, and make some money out of it. I don't think success should raise its ugly head here.

Ya know, despite my best efforts my dogs are well adjusted.

I feel so much richer, for my ignorance of such things.
