I was watching the action from my TV at home, so I didn't have to deal with the lines. Myself and a few people were considering going, then cheaped out- we didn't even consider the line ups.

The biggest thing they need to change is the national anthem. Now, I am not sure if they do this at other raceways, but having the Star Spangled Banner stamped on any event in the 50 states is kind of annoying. I would overestimate that about 10% of the people involved in MotoGP are actually American, so I don't really know who the anthem is for. If that wasn't bad enough, the singer got the lyrics wrong! Good on Nicky Hayden to burst out laughing- that sort of national embarrassment needs a light heart, I'm glad he won the race too.

I think I will try to get out there next year, even if the crowds/traffic/motel rates do suck- just so I could say I saw a round of MotoGP in person.
