It appears that we're not the only ones who find Mikey Motormouth irritating.

Doesn't sound as if the Canadian press is ready to embrace him.

I'm not surprised to hear someone mention Michael badmouthing Allmendinger.  He does it every chance he gets with Todd Bodine in the truck races as well.  It's clear he's never liked Todd ever since he bragged in Victory Lane at MI a few years ago how he tried to wrinkle his fender during a Busch race (and succeeded to get the lead away).  Yet he can't go five minutes without gushing over he and his brother's protege when supposed giving us unbiased commentary during the truck races.  

Whether you are a fan of Todd's or not (as I am), it's just painful to see someone in the booth be so biased towards or against drivers while supposedly covering the race.  I don't think the Watlrip boys even know the meaning of the word unbiased.

Michael Waltrip's provincialism, as shown on Saturday's telecast, is ridiculous!  What happens if Allmendinger joins the truck series on a regular basis next year? :evil:

With any luck, Mikey will be too busy with his 3 Cup teams to continue to disgrace the truck races from the booth.

Would like to send that link to Speed and Michael but don't know how.  Maybe you can, Sally?

Yep, MCW is a big mouth who knows nothing, IMO

Vivian, try cutting and pasting it to your comment at the speedtv feedback site.  I'm sure they would love it.

 Just be careful, Vivian. Last time I tried that it made a mess on the screen of my monitor. :-D

Good one, Dick!   :lol:   Great visual image you invoked there!

Is that kind of like the blonde joke about using white-out on a monitor?
