What's really funny is that no NFL team from Houston have even had the opportunity to lose a Super Bowl

I think with as much momentum Marquez had those 2 years, he could have been on a Chinese scooter and still won.

They say that MM is struggling this year because Honda changed the frame design on the bike. I don't see how they could have messed it up that bad when MM was blitzing track times in pre-season testing but is killing himself on track.

This will probably not be his year. He made a dumb mistake by trying to beat Rossi when he knew he couldn't hold the pace. He could have finished 2nd or 3rd but found gravel instead. Then he dumped it again trying to keep up in the last round. Granted, all top level racers want to win but taking some points is better than no points.

I'd have to give that win more to the riders and builders than I would Honda since the engine and some stickers are the only thing Honda and the rest is custom built.


That's like saying Honda swept the podium in every Moto2 race.

So the riders and builders of the Yamahas and Suzukis just naturally suck? Got it

Well, historically, Yamaha has won more sidecar races than Honda. Just not this year.
