you try speaking a different language i bet you sound goofy to. i thought it was a good interview. rossi was asked to describe to the american publice how famous he is over seas. this was for the people who just catch the ama race once in a while and only now names like ben bostrom and mat maladin or miguel duhamel. i thought it was a great interview but still not as funny as nickey hadens dance on the podeum

I read in the local monterey paper this past weekend that he was actually relieved that he could do regular things around town and not get mobbed by people...like he does in italy. I can see that.

For a rider of his stature I think he is as humble as you can possibly get. He has a little bit of what could be called cockiness, but to be a competitor at that level you have to have complete confidence in your abilities. It's a fine line. I'll take rossi over someone like mladin anyday.

Rossi just rules. A completely unknown track to him and still he got close enough to colin in the last lap to make me think he was gonna pass him. HE was way in front of other riders that are laguna seca veterans like troy bayliss.

Stolen from the WERA forum :D

Laguna Conspiracy Theory
The race was fixed. A whole bunch of us struck up this
conversation about a fix even before the race
finished. Here's one possibility...

(Scene: in the Yamaha garage, roughly twenty minutes
before the sighting lap for the MotoGP race. Valentino
motions Colin over to the corner of the garage just
out of everyone's earshot)

VALE: Colin, diss eess a beddy important race for
Amedica, yes?

COLIN: ****in-A, man. I sure hope I can clear off from
Nicky so I can finish second to you, V.

VALE: Dat eess why I call to you to come. I have Beeeg
plan for you. (stretches arms wide) Closer to me.
Nobody to hear, OK?

COLIN: (Leans in) What's up?

VALE: I have beddy beeg points from Marco. Maybe
sixty-one ahead. I wish to go cool and give you de
race if you can catch Nicky. He eess beddy fast. You
catch, you pass, you win, OK?

COLIN: (Shouts) **** Fire! You'd do that for me?
(slaps thigh)

VALE: Hey! Beddy quiet for plan is good, OK?

COLIN: (whispers) Riiiight, sorry.

VALE: You go catch Nicky. Have good time. MotoGP get
big in Amedica from you. You get famous and rich and
buy Texas, Yes?

COLIN: (shouts again) ****in-A! Let's go! (Gives
Valentino a forearm to the shoulder. Valentino trips
over a pile of shop rags and farts as he gets up.
Colin laughs so hard he shoots a booger out his left
nostril.)

VALE: De pasta primavera, eet always make me do dis!

COLIN: (Yells) Hey, everybody! Valentino just **** his
leathers!

During the race, Nicky motors away like he's shot from
a cannon. Valentino rides at seven-tenths, and waits
for habitual bad starter Colin to catch up. Colin
sails past at eleven-tenths as Valentino mulls over
what to have for dinner and which one of his umbrella
girls will get a pearl necklace before bedtime.
Valentino falls 3.5 seconds back as Colin tries to
crawl under the paint in an effort to catch Nicky, who
is doing an admirable job of lighting the afterburners
every time the gap shrinks to under two seconds.

With two laps to go, Valentino gets startled awake by
an air horn as he crests the ridge leading up to the
Corkscrew. As he shakes the cobwebs out and yawns, he
sees Colin ahead, too far from Nicky to make a run of
any significance.

VALE: (Thinking) Colin, Colin, Colin, you are a beeg
Amedican ****-up. Now I have to go and make up for
your, uh, how do you say....uh, imcompetence. Mister
Yamaha ees at de track! How do you let thees happen?

The race results are as posted. Valentino, realizing
an American one-two would be good press fodder, closes
on Colin just enough to let him know who the alpha
rider still is. Colin arrives at the podium so
drenched with sweat he looks pressurized. Valentino,
however, looks like he just got done watching a movie
in his motorhome.

After the hoopla of post-race interviews dies down and
the crowd disperses, the two teammates cross paths as
the MotoGP circus folds up the tents.

COLIN: Hey, man, I want to thank you for that chance.
Man, that little **** Nicky is faster than I thought.
I tried, man. About next year, do you think--

VALE: Don't talk to me.

I liked how he was happy he had a fan club of 7000 people...hahaha. He's not that cocky. I'm sure it's more than that.

I'll take rossi over someone like mladin anyday.
+1 on that shit!

I thought he answered the question truthfully and I'm sure he's absolutely right. I don't think he is too cocky. I love it when he wins and you can tell that he is excited and happy and waving to the crowd etc... When Mladin wins he asks like it's no big deal and that just supposed to win or something. He's a good rider and all (obviously) and does ride the best bike in the world and all but I'm not a big fan of him. I try to root for the Suzuki on the podium but I find myself pulling for anybody to beet him regardless of what they ride.

The interview was quite lame. Stupid questions. It was great to see Rossi being interviewed, but Greg White isn't a very good interviewer or host. I have no idea how he got that TWT gig on Speed.

Yeah I thought it was funny that Rossi thought a 7,000 person fan club was huge. Though it is b***** than my fan club.
