A Rays fan was at Tropicana Field during yesterday’s off-day and noticed this car in the parking lot (thanks Sookie)…
Turns out this Chevrolet HHR belongs to Jason Rawley of Fireblade Comics and a member of “The Real Tampa Bay Ghostbusters.” You can see a gallery and more on how Rawley created the ECTO-1X at THIS LINK.
But what we are more interested in is “why?” Why was the ECTO-1X at The Trop? Were The Real Tampa Bay Ghostbusters on duty? We put a word out to the group, but have yet to hear back. So we are left to speculate.
With the playoffs set to start in mere weeks, we can only imagine that this has something to do with Joe Maddon and his recent comments disparaging The Trop. Maddon insists the two have since made up. But knowing JoeMa, the kind words may have just been a diversion to conceal his plan to rid The Trop of ghastly ghouls.
Or maybe the guy was just there to pick up some tickets.
