The hotel we are staying at here in Greensboro has turned into a Lowrider car show.
The Cinco de Mayo Lowrider Convention Car Show is today from 10:00-5:00 PM at the Greensboro Coliseum, which is actually only 4-5 miles up the road from our hotel.
The parking lot has essentially turned into a 24-hour tailgate. When we got back to the hotel last night at 11:00 PM, the parking lot was jammed full of people hanging out by their cars.
I never thought that people were so into their lowriders. There are actually lowrider groups that are displaying their flags on the hotel balconys.
Today is the series finale. I believe there is a chance of rain today. The last thing anybody wants is a delay.
Jedidiah Stephen won the friendly pool for the Kentucky Derby yesterday. Although he had a long-shot, Bird That Mine pulled it out for Stephen. Basically, 19 players participated and each had a horse.
The hotel is letting us check out at 1:00 PM today, which is fantastic! Today is a “Show and Go” day. No batting practice or infield/outfield.
Until next time, Go Shorebirds!
