The little line note at the end of a CRANK IT UP segment yesterday whichsaid something like:
     " Crank it down, they are about to talk"Huh?

I only was able to see about the first 40 or so laps before my old car club meeting, but I did see that little advisory, and it cracked me up. I'm not sure if it was intended to be "tongue in cheek" or just what, but I took it as at least a display of someones sense of humor! Grin

As Cheryl said last year, Fox does this all the time and it is serious about it.  Mike Joy has explained that this is so that viewers can adjust the volume accordingly on their TVs.

Actually Fox just began putting that "warning" up last season.  But I haven't noticed it there in the two Cup races I have seen in their entirety this year.

I guess I just have not been paying attention, BUT I still think it can be interpreted as being pretty funny. Kinda like:  Look out- here they come!! Grin

It was kind of a joke. It came from a rather nasty email they recieved two years ago about a lady in South Carolina who was sick of having her surround sound cranked and suddenly have DW, Larry and Mike start talking.

And I still think it's a cue to hit the tv mute and turn up MRN.
