Todays "Duh..."

I long ago gave up throwing snack food at the TV when racing drivers made apparently bone-headed moves.  It's a lot harder than it looks, as I learned doing high-speed autocross, without anybody to race into a corner, or get out of the way for.

But color commentators still grind my molars.  Today's pearl of wisdom from IndyCar at Detroit:

     "It's raining and, don't forget, folks, this is a street circuit with normal, crowned, public
     roads.  The crown works with you on corner-entry but the car goes loose on exit."

Who doesn't know this?  Come on down to the Dragon's crowns, commentator.  Try it at 9/10's.  Or 8/10's in the rain.
