Oh look, it's tennis.
 
2021-06-13 12:14:56 PM  
They are still doing the pre race ceremonies.  Broadcast apparently will start at the bottom of the hour with the cars starting at about 40 minutes past the hour.
 
2021-06-13 12:25:57 PM  
I missed yesterday's race and now I bummed out because of no recap with no pre-race ceremonies. Stupid Tennis.
 
2021-06-13 12:28:45 PM  
Fired up the nbc app to avoid the channel not showing the start just in case.
 
2021-06-13 12:32:31 PM  
Broadcast is on CNBC.
 
2021-06-13 12:36:24 PM  
Predictions on how long it takes Jimmie Johnson to get lapped?
 
2021-06-13 12:36:25 PM  
Askew with JPM gear. He's now my driver choice.
 
2021-06-13 12:39:41 PM  
Great, tennis is back on.
 
2021-06-13 12:42:54 PM  
Jeez. That's a horrible crash.
 
2021-06-13 12:43:19 PM  
Between that crash and Eriksen's heart attack, yesterday was a traumatic day in sports.
 
2021-06-13 12:48:31 PM  
Hinch, you're in punting position.
 
2021-06-13 12:51:03 PM  

Princip's Sandwich: Jeez. That's a horrible crash.


It sounded like his throttle hung open going into the corner.  Jimmie Johnson also had issues with his throttle, but he had the opposite problem where he couldn't get the car to go, which made him somehow go slower than he has been all season,

How did Dixon not take out half the field
 
2021-06-13 12:52:04 PM  
Amazed that Dixon's car is still in one piece.
 
2021-06-13 12:52:13 PM  
I farking hate NBC. I have 35 minues left of free preview of NBC Sports app. If the stupid tennis doesn't end by then, I can't watch the rest of the race.
 
2021-06-13 12:52:39 PM  
Chilton honors his Marussia roots.
 
2021-06-13 1:04:45 PM  
I guess NBC thought nadal would wipe out someone in three since Dojokovic and Fed were in his half, good thing I have CNBC
 
2021-06-13 1:05:16 PM  
Still not enough to have any sympathy. Nice try, NBC.
 
2021-06-13 1:07:47 PM  
Maybe they'll get all their commercials out of the way on cbc
 
2021-06-13 1:13:08 PM  
Sato has more clownshoe experience than Grosjean, bonks him off.

The hamsters fell asleep.
 
2021-06-13 1:20:35 PM  
Awwwwwww wheel nuts!
 
2021-06-13 1:20:55 PM  
Oh, it's actually another case of "curse you, wheel gun guy!"
 
2021-06-13 1:22:19 PM  
This appears to be farking tennis
 
2021-06-13 1:22:26 PM  
Press F to pay respects to bug.

That camera went splat.

He's forgetting Power's IndyCar Logo outburst.
 
2021-06-13 1:31:43 PM  
Grosjean introduces Harvey to the Experience.
 
2021-06-13 1:32:39 PM  
shiat... I thought the start was 1:30.

/Grrr.
 
2021-06-13 1:35:31 PM  
Bouncing between this and work. Let's not have a repeat of yesterday's adventures with the wall, m'kay ?
 
2021-06-13 1:37:04 PM  
Grosjean gets a trip to the principal's office.

I hereby demand that I be given a fark account: [i.imgflip.com image 577x432]


Uhhhm, most racing series [with noted exceptions] allow suppliers to bring multiple compounds. YOU mean Mandatory compound switching, and I mostly agree.

Well, I could have written that you should be given a tire to run on and run on it, because I'm here to watch racing not some guy staring at a computer deciding tire wear patterns, with the obvious exception of west/semi-wet tires if it rains, since weather forecasting doesn't have the accuracy or resolution to forecast race conditions across the whole track, but then you wouldn't be able to read it.

\ And it wouldn't have been as funny.

VK almost KO.

Veekay doesn't want to finish this race.

Did Marco get booted from Andretti Autosport?
 
2021-06-13 1:58:32 PM  

Princip's Sandwich: Did Marco get booted from Andretti Autosport?


Booted, quit, semantics

You can't fire him if he quits?
 
2021-06-13 2:00:11 PM  
NBC switching channels around willy-nilly makes it really difficult to record the race.

/farkers
 
2021-06-13 2:02:54 PM  
I haven't had more than three minutes to sit and watch the race, but how in the holy hell is Jimmie Johnson still on the lead lap?
 
2021-06-13 2:04:28 PM  
Jimmeh wanted to give Newgarden a caution.

Jimmie Johnson seems to usually stall it when he spins.  Well this bunches the field
 
2021-06-13 2:05:16 PM  
Yumpin Yimmie Yohnson! You are  a yackass!
