WRC: Acropolis

Sebastien Loeb is unstoppable, with his 5th win of the year this guy is going to take over the championship for a long time. Good news for Ford and the Focus, Gardenmeister got second place beating returning WRC driver Carlos Sainz in his final drive. A very good rally this was, great to see the Focus on the podium. And very sad to see my favorite driver El Matador Carlos Sainz retiring.

blackandgold, where's Solberg?

You SOB Yeah he had a tough going after he destroyed the shit out of his wing. For as much as people criticize for how big the wings are, I think Solberg showed just how important that wing is. It was funny seeing him drive around with no trunk. That was a lot of money on damage though. I can attest to those wings costing upwards of $4000 just for the wing. Prodrive sells them to the general public sometimes. Don't worry Solberg is going to come out on top and beat Loeb one of these times. I think Loeb has pretty much captured the championship though. I actually would hope that all the Suby cars would do better this year. They are really stuggling this year. I was very impressed with the Focus though. You know it never seems to matter who the driver is in the Focus they still run very well. I think that shows just how well the Focus is built. Hell the one guy leading the race at the beginning isn't even sponsered by Ford. I actually like that silver on the Rally car. Really sets it off!!

Now what would really help is if Ford would wake up and offer a performance Focus in the states. I know of many Suby guys who would be willing to make the switch if it happens (not holding my breath).

Ahh, the joy of having a DVR. I never miss a single show or race, and because there's always so much playing I never really watch anything but what I really want to. By now I get pissed when I watch live TV and I can't skip through the commercials.

BTW, check with your local cable company. It cost us, gasp, $7.99 to get a DVR and like $5 more a month for the service. I would never ever ever ever go back.
