    I said “could” not “would.” I do not know what Nike’s corporate retirement policy is but large publicly-traded corporations tend to be less flexible. And Masback may not need financially to continue...

    Masback has been with Nike since he stepped down from being CEO of USATF in 2008. I guess they gave him international positions to avoid conflicts with his former job. But since he should be 64 years...

    The sport desperately needs more good stadium announcers. I used to do it at the college level and did a National Junior Olympic Meet one year.

    Now you have my curiosity - on what thread did I previously use it? The only thing I can guess would be a reference to when my wife (before we were married) went on African Safari.
