Re(6): September jai-alai handles

Reading these stories makes me glad I discovered Jai Alai after the strike was long over.. Looking at the strike and the results of the strike and the story itself from a 50,000 foot view it becomes Obvious that Jai Alai as a gambling business was infiltrated by the worst kind. Yes they paid some Talented people before the strike.. Gave it proper marketing for the day,, Love Seeing those old Jai Alai Documentaries from the 70's when they even briefly focused on the Basque culture. The players and supporters went after fans because going after management would end your life. It was a grand experiment gone completely awry.. So regulations keep the game going several more years while the talent actually got better and no one was watching because the Fronton Owners wanted to get rid of it. There has never been broadcast level video recording and broadcasting games in North America with the exception of Fronton Mexico. The Magic City Court unfortunately lacks the wow factor of a full Jai Alai court. Calder was a better effort court wise but still lacking the wow factor of a six story fronton.. As Nascar fans like crashes, Jai Ali fans love the danger of a pelota as fast and hard a pool cue ball and that just doesn't happen at Magic City. The Culture of Jai Alai is Diverse and Global and if it didn't mean anything we wouldn't be here chatting about it. No one has ever thought to serve street tacos at a game.. It's all been done wrong. We can take our giant chalk board eraser out and wipe the past away..
