Re(1): My visit to OLE

The saddest part of this story is the fact that everyone involved with OLE has given up on the sport. They used to charge admission to get in to the racebook. Now it is free everyday. They close early when they are empty. I was there today as well and the racebook had more than a few people. I would say there was maybe 150 people in there. I would guesstimate 60 were watching Jai alai. The only reason I wager there is because of the fact that I can control my betting. They are cutting cost on the food and drink by offering the cheapest junk food you can find. I remember when you could go in there and get hand battered fish and chicken,, fresh salads etc.. No more! just frozen food selections now. IMHO a creative marketing staff could bring the sport back by broadcasting the games in HD. Marketing to Orlando's growing Hispanic community. Partnering with Full Sail University like the WWE has. They already have the best announcer in the biz in Tony Woods. You still hear his voice when you call OLE. The Orlando tourism market is still hot.... Very sad!
