Slow News Day; Still No Anna Nicole News

The scene is set for the Frozen Four, the WHL has tonight off, and nothing really exciting happened in the NHL. Well, the Canucks lost to the Avalanche (thanks to a great performance by Burnaby Joe), but Canucks news is played out in this town. When they win, they're awesome. When they lose, blame Naslund. Not to say I'm anti-Naslund blame ... I think he's an overpaid waste of ice-time ... but I love how the media (I'm looking at YOU Neil McRae) is the first to dive off the band-wagon. And people wonder why the Vancouver fans are so fair-weather.

I'm not a big fan of the MotoGP scheduling. They tease me with two races in the beginning of the season, and now I have to wait 4 weeks until the Grand Prix of Turkey. It's hard to keep interested in testing and engineering when the races are so sporadic. That being said, I feel obligated to report on ... post-race testing in Jerez. All teams stayed an extra day in the wonderful Spanish heat to tweak the settings in preparation of Turkey. Quickest times in day 1 testing? Why it was the 2 Kwaks, of course! I wonder how this team would be if they signed a solid, young rider. The engineering ability is there, they just seem to be lacking some key factor.
