Picture 185,000 people on the streets attending the biggest event in Long Beach. There is a main downtown street which is the only way into the Grand Prix. It’s chaos because it is not private property that can be contained; these are working boulevards with cars and people vying to get where they want to go.
And there they are on the main corner, across from the entrance, right in the middle are the cart witnesses. I would have snapped a pic but as most people understand, this is not the time to stop and block foot traffic. They had weird big grins in their face while holding up the mags as literally thousands of people are rushing by.
We cross the street going towards the entrance gate and there is another set of carts, 20 ft away from the security check. Everybody needs to go through this area and it backs up surrounding the carts. I did not notice them until I’m right up to them. Nothing should surprise me about these folks but I was when coming face to face. Again the weird fakey fake smile.
On the way out after the race they positioned themselves in the middle of the walkway so you had to go around them.
Remember in the old days we used to say if people would see the dubs on their street and say “oh those dubs are back again” it was a witness because they acknowledged our being there. Is this what is going on here? No one will ever stop to talk with them except other dubs. There is no other reason to position themselves in this type of venue. I doubt even dubs that were at the GP would even stop to talk with them, because well, they should be out in FS not at the race!
it is just amazing how they have convinced themselves of their own relevance. Good job WBTS! You got them busy in a nothing work.
