We sponsored a crab in the family category and named him Crab Ochocinco. While waiting for the races to start, we had a nice dinner at Berret's Taphouse Grill. Charlotte gobbled down her rice cereal, Trenton had chicken tenders, I had a salad with grilled scallops and shrimp, and Jarrod had the crab trio - crab cakes, crab salad, and soft shell crab. I guess these were the orphan crabs that didn't get sponsored for the race!
The races started, and although he got off to a slow start, Ochocinco came in second in his division. They also had a contest for cutest crab and the best name. Emeril Clawgasse beat us out for Best Name. Crabby won the Cutest Crab. Even though we didn't win, this sure was a fun event!

Our division - Crab Ochocinco is in lane eight. He was a slow starter!
Isn't he a cute little fella?
This is a video of the championship heat in the individual division. The crab that won was 81 and Glad to be Here - the crab of a lady celebrating her 81st birthday.
