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.
