They contest the javelin outside the stadium here, on a field just below the South Street Bridge. Dig how all of the officials wear red hats, white button-downs, striped ties and yellow khakis. When it's colder out, they even sport blue blazers. Like olden times -- classy and important-looking. And way cool.
The walk back from the javelin pit takes you right along the Schuylkill Expressway and provides a gorgeous view of the Center City skyline. A better photographer might have snapped this without the backs of those signposts being in the way. But I'm not a better photographer.
Just outside the stadium, it's a carnival of people and humming activity. All day long.
More to come...
