Preakness Infield: The Blood Photos
So I was discussing with some Preakness Infielders what would make a good photo, something that truly captured the moment. Then this chap walked by. Unsteadily, I should add. Everyone was taking his photo, although his head kept bobbing back and forth, which made things more difficult. I thought about asking him to stop and pose, but, you know.
The Infield fights were definitely on a weird loop; one guy would emerge from the scrum, show his friends exactly the punch kick and knee moves he had used on others inside the scrum, and then go back in. Usually just a little pushing and spittle-filled screams were required to set off another scrum. A Post colleague saw one young woman get blasted in the face by a young gent. All in all, the Infield strikes me as a strange place to take a baby, although I did, in fact, see one woman carrying a baby down some muddy path.
You do wonder why we've seen all these careful essays predicting the downfall of the American empire, though. More photos after the jump, including one with lots of blood that squeamish readers should probably avoid.
