We're two days removed from the inaugural
Is that a fair assessment?
Everyone has been complaining about the gridlocked streets downtown. Traffic is so bad, it screwed up Buck Showalter's morning commute on Thursday (if Buck scowls when he's happy, imagine the face he made when he tried to turn onto Light Street). Environmentalists are concerned about air pollution. Taxpayers wonder if their dollars are being put to good use. The IndyCar drivers themselves worry the downtown track is unsafe.
Am I angry about the race? No.
Am I apathetic about it? You bet.
Watching this virtual video of what it's like to drive in the Baltimore Grand Prix is enough for me. Maybe I'll cue it up a few dozen times Sunday and pretend that I'm actually downtown at the race. That's enough of a Baltimore Grand Prix experience for me.
