If only all the races could be a few blocks from my house…
Everette and the BBC crew done went and outdid theyselves this year. How in the heck does he use 200 more stakes at Sloss than Cooper Green??? I guess I should have walked the whole course and I would know… Everyone loved the course and it goes without saying that the venue is unbelievable…how did he pull off getting in Sloss anyway? I’ve witnessed E’s negotiating skills under fire and they are impressive to say the least.
Grills was smokin’, kids was playin’, chilli was in the pot,the smell of embro in the air, cowbells, vuvaz(whatevers) honkin’, beats bumpin,planes, trains, automobiles, skyscrapers and furnaces in the background, remnants from the haunted house in tact, perfect weather…these are just ramblings of my recollection.
I wish I could get a better picture of the ‘scene’ but alas, some stiff has to be responsible for backup scoring…oh well.
dmac was dmac, hardwick was hardwick,Nat was Nat,Mary Ellen Mattison broke out,Ross was Ross,Lil Will was Lil Will,Big Will was Big Will, that was about what I absorbed, sorry.
