The Amazing Race 16 Sightings/Info: Tweets Go here please!
« on: November 28, 2009, 11:25:35 AM »
Hi everyone. Lurker here :)

I was on twitter and saw these tweets come in within minutes of each other:

"Looking outside my window at the hotel and I think I just saw "the amazing race" team just run across the entrance to the freeway. Random."

"The amazing race is at our hotel? So are the USC football, USC basketball, and UCLA mens waterpolo teams. This place is rockin."

I think the games have begun :)

I don't know if I'd call it a definite yet. Usually the biggest hits are when they show up at the air port, so wait and see imo.

hmmm... quick check of the USC sports web page says USC vs. UCLA football today, UCLA water polo team is in a tournament in LA, but basketball team played locally yesterday and will again tomorrow....   I guess a local team really stays in a hotel before the game?   :duno:

The latest tweet that I posted regarding TAR was from a Premiere Radio Syndication Producer that was there as they started the race.

I only know that it started in LA.

I'm confused, HOW do we know LA again please? ???  

If we are sure about LA.... :wohoo:
But even an LA person is more likely to be in a hotel somewhere else, right?? I need that "somwhere else" to help out here...

All three of the people that tweeted about it are either from LA or in LA. This guy is from Boston but vacationing in LA and he tweeted that he saw them in his hotel room:

Why are they running around a hotel and freeway?? ??? Advertising their presence?? ??? This wouldn't be the start line, would it??

have to say that this is NOT normal race start behavior...

If anyone sees any info about  what they are actually seeing, what makes them think TAR, please share...

I am  concerned given our history here that we could be seeing our first "decoy start" :lol3:

Taking the decoys to the extreme, how about a "Decoy race" - 11 teams of 2 are paid to embark on a race around the world, while the real race happens a few blocks away.

Hold on a sec... Midday Saturday???

Don't races usually start either early morning on weekends, or midday during the week, to reduce the amount of potential sightings?
