I think I'm caught up from the 12 hours worth of coverage this weekend. Not overly exciting races, but its nice to see so much going on at one of our tracks.

Johnny Rea threw out the first pitch at the A's game. I'm sure everyone in the stands were like "who are these guys??"

If anyone missed it, BeIn did a tribute to NH69, showing his first MotoGP victory which happened to be at Laguna Saca in 2005. It was a tad hard to watch.

I was a tad disappointed with the Nicky tribute because on my guide it said remembering Nicky Hayden so I expected some type of tribute to where they talked to American racers plus some input from the wsbk paddock.
That 2005 race is readily available on YouTube and I've already watched it a few times.
It wasn't bad just not what I expected.

I have to agree there. I was expecting interviews and quirky stories from other racers, but to see the race (I have seen it before) on a Laguna Saca race weekend, was kind of cool.

I can't help but think that if he died on the track, the tributes would be bigger and better. Maybe I'm being selfish though.

I would tend to agree with you there.
