Watching commentaryless Nascar
sports: for some reasons Foxsports commentator audio feed channel is not balanced with the in car and track audio. You can not hear more than every tenth word as the cars go around. I first throught it was the PVR not getting in the audio properly but the commericals - boring Canadian local ones are crystal clear. So it is either the feed that SportsNet picked up and botched or originating with FoxSports. 41 laps in the bag now and only when they do recorded interviews you can year everything.And even that is muted. Not so hot. I can't imagine having all these Nascar fans calling into FoxSports for 50 laps complaining. If I was watching this live I would have emailed em a few times by now. I don't think I will record off SportsNet next time. I miss the commercials too.
On a positive, while watching the race I am in the initial planning stages of a vacation. Going West. Thinking BC and Alberta in the end of May / beginning of June. The rockies are where it is at for scenery. Driving the TCH from Vancouver to Calgary via places like Banff and Jasper... Could be sweet. And when I mentioned it to Mandy she came through with a crap load of guides and pamphlets and material she collected when she was there in '98. A ton of stuff. And a ton of pics too. In the first five mins of reading I found several things that tweaked my interest. Thanks Mandy. U rock. :)
