    Oooh, I'll take that bet: Bolt against the field in every race! It COULD happen, but the betting odds are not supporting it.

    If one more person says that Bolt JOGGED such-and-such race, I'm going postal. RELAXED running is the FASTEST. >:-(

    No, but the statistical correlation is 100%. I've been there once in the last 5 years, and that's what I got. Atlanta IS bookcases!
    I'm just being silly, sorry, carry-on.

    That's my story too. I can have very plebian standards for shelling out my $$$, but some weekends I can't bear to see anything. I saw Focus this weekend and it was 'all right', but nothing to write...

    Now he's out to 25.58 (~84'!!), so I watched the video and was very gratified to see how UNbulky he looks. Doesn't that bode well for the HT?

    Why wait? I already do.
    It was so pretentious, self-absorbed, artificial and POORLY acted (even the scenes NOT in the play, were play-acted).

    False reasoning. The current WR-holder's physique is irrelevant to what is BEST. If AE were 6'5 and retained the same strength-to-weight ratio, which obviously many NFL/NBA types do, he'd be scoring...

    That statement is 100% true. But it does not make him invincible THIS year, and there certainly was not anything in this performance to warrant any 'guarantees'. That said, my money is still on him...
