    Does anybody know of any free preview weekends coming up?

    Ever since I switched to electronic bills, I really miss those inserts from the paper mailer. :nono2:

    That "goofy" baby channel is great if you have kids.

    I thought NASCAR and the baby channel was synonimous

    I think the baby channel (293) is free until the 28th. We have a two- and three-year-old and there are shows for toddlers. They enjoy it.

    If you sign up for the DTV monthly newsletter that comes in your email they inform you of any free previews for the month.

    ANYTHING has to be better than watching that same, stinking Teletubbies video for the 400th time! I'm definitely going to be checking it out. If I see Po chasing around the Noo-noo one more time....

    And that is different than watching cars make 250 left hand turns how? Identical entertainment if you ask me. Both even use primary colors, emblems and catchy phrases to capture the imagination.

    Well first off, they make 500 left hand turns, so you can see how much more interesting it can be. :rolleyes:

    The HotPass was awesome! The only bad thing about it was the commercials that kept interrupting the driver's talking... Any word if there will be commercials in the future? If it is it should be free!!!

    Both of you are wrong. The race is 500 miles, the track is 2.5 miles around which means they run 200 laps. Since there are 4 corners on the track multiplied by 200, they make 800 left hand turns. This of course does not include the left hand turns into the pits or the garage area if needed, but it is a very close estimate.

    But what about the tri-oval?
    If turn one doesn't have a "straight away" before turn two, can you really call them two turns? Indy has four distinct turns in the track.
    I think both of "us" where joking BTW.

    So, if the entire race is turns to the left, does that mean Neo-Conservatives can't enter?

    I agree... My 1 year old loves the "goofy" baby channel preview and probably just let D* get $10/month more from me... too bad it isn't lumped into the Premier package :/
