Saturday was a Supercross kind of day! Juha Aromaa and Karri Salmela are over here for the Reedy Race of Champions, and we took a day off from RC and headed down to San Diego in the morning for the 2nd round of the AMA Supercross series! For whatever reason the boys had created their “Rap Names”, Juha is now known as “Phatty J”, Karri is “Skinny K”, and I was unanimously voted to be “Dumb J”.
The supercross was awesome. The racing was great this time, unlike Anaheim 1, the 250 main was epic, with Davalos’ late implosion leading to a hectic finish. And team Europe dominated again, that was great to see! Can’t wait for A2 next week.
On the topic of names, I think it’s strange how they often ask you for your name when you order food at a number of American establishments. This time Juha became “John”, Karri became “Kenny”, and as for me, I always say my name is Jesus, just because I want them to call out loud for Jesus. They always pull the “Hesus” card on me, but I’m going to succeed! I feel like we should have gone with our rap names.
We had a pretty funny incident occur after the SX race. As we were walking through the pits, we were debating weather we should swing by the Kawi pits, or head to a bar for a few beers, so I said, in Finnish “You know what, let’s just go to a bar, Tomac has really small tits anyway.” Just as I said that, a Samoan looking guy butts in, IN FINNISH, “Hey, are you from Finland?” Hilarious, after that, every time any of us said something strange, we looked around to check for Finnish speakers.
