Title: Parnelli Jones was
Post by: Vivian on February 26, 2004, 01:17:06 AM
on Wind Tunnel last night and really surprised me when Dave asked him about best drivers.  He mentioned Brendan Gaughan first and then added Jeff G, Tony and Jason.  No current open wheel drivers were mentioned.
Also, did anyone see the Larry King show Monday night with Jeff G and Jr?
I could not believe it when he actually asked Jr where he was when Dale died?  The man just was too invasive in my opinion in ref to Dale and after 3 years you would think the media would let Jr be his own person but they just keep on and on and on.........

You were expecting intellignet, knowegable questions about racing from Larry King?  He asked if Jr was going to endorse George Bush, for heaven sakes!  At least he wasn't as condescending as most racing illiteratti are. :roll:

Glad someone watched besides me.  And you are right, I should know better but I was too curious not to check it out.  Sometimes I just expect too much from some of these media people.  :lol:

I have to admit, this was the first time I have ever watched Larry King, my only real exposure to him being on SNL and Mad TV skits.  And I have to say that there really isn't much spoof going on there.  This man is an idiot.  In the first 30 seconds, to watch Jr's face go from smiling happy-go-lucky to totally space-cased was painful for me.  What the hell was King thinking?  And then to keep bringing it up?  I was so disgusted...
