Last Saturday, 10th of March, was the Annual Softball Classic event with the Miami V-Dubs crowd. They call it the "single-most anticipated, ridiculous and looked-forward-to sporting event of the year". So I decided to drive down to Miami in my bug with my beautiful and supporting girlfriend Maryluz, whom I hope doesn't get tired of going to so many VW events :P.
We were not able to stay until the end but did have a great time saying hello to everyone and watching the guys (and girls) hitting, or at least trying to hit the ball. What was hilarious was seeing some of them wearing ladies lingerie, not sure exactly why, but I get the feeling it was some kind of rookie initiation thing... I hope they don't make me do that to join the club!
Since I was not playing, I took on the job of paparazzi and went inside the field to take pics. I apologize for taking more pictures of the cars though! I did take a nice video of them choosing the players for each team. The teams were El Cloro vs. Las Escobas. Why?? That was thanks to the Samba guy who was the inspiration for the team names after the Samba decided to clean out the club's forum for things like pornography, profanity, and Spanglish talking, nothing out of the ordinary... I should've saved those pics of naked chicks on their VWs before they deleted them!
We also enjoyed looking at all the awesome VWs they had brought in. I finally got to see Richie's bug, which I had heard of a lot in the forum. What a good deal you got for that bug bro... I also saw Conrad Jr.'s first bug, which just happens to be a flat black '68 bug. Congrats bro! It does need a lot of work, but then again which bug doesn't??? The ones that impressed me the most were the pearl white ragtop with the wide rims (don't know whose it is), and the Mexican ragtop. It was my first time seeing one of those newer old style bugs, I thought it was awesome. The roof opening was huge!! The rest of the cars were also very cool.
Here are the pics and the video I took.
