Thursday is a big day for Baltimore’s famous blue crabs…the annual Preakness Crab Derby is at noon today. Find out where and what happens…
Lexington Market in “crab chaos”, as local celebs race their crabs for charity money. I won one year and placed third another year. So I know a little bit about this “derby”. They equip you with a stick and a ping pong ball dangling from the end of the stick. You get a spray water bottle and a blue crab. The first crab over the finish line wins. There is a trick: I picked a feisty crab out of Faidely’s Crab barrel. Then, dangle the ball for a few minutes before start time, to get him interested. Spray the water on him from time to time to keep him hydrated. It worked for me! http://www.lexingtonmarket.com/index1.html Below, vintage video from 2009 of Greg and Me, see who placed in the race!
