Ryan Villopoto sent out a tweet earlier today saying he will be on Sunday’s (11APR2010) Wind Tunnel with Dave Despain for a live interview. I’m a big fan of Despain. Even though Wind Tunnel is 80% NASCAR, Despain does his best to get the moto guys on the show. As Dave said a couple of years ago… “Of course there’s too ?*^!$^% much NASCAR on the network. There’s too $!?*#&% many NASCAR fans. And whose fault is that? It sure as hell isn’t mine.”
Dave Despain is one of my favorite sportscasters. He’s sort of a “professor” of motorsports and covers a little bit of everything — even though everything these days is about 90% NASCAR.
This little video has been around since 2006, but I just found it. It’s hilarious, and was no doubt quite cathartic for Dave. I’m sure his call screeners purposefully select the biggest train wrecks for the show but still, it has to be tough to listen to some of the crap he hears week after week after week.
Even if you’ve seen this before, it’s worth watching again. Don’t we all wish we could do this.
