    Talk about a tough crowd. If they don't show up enough on the circuit, we complain that they're ducking and leading T&F to ruin. If they do show up, they're over-racing.

    The irony here is that this is the same height he cleared 10 out of 11 tries in 30 minutes in practice one day. He obviously did not go to his 'safety pole' on the last try.

    Sad, but true. I myself grovelled to get into Duke and had to settle for S.

    Oh, wait, that can't be true. I'd never even heard of Duke, and no one from my school even wanted to go there!!!!!

    It's not that they don't like Djo - he's a great guy. It's that Federer is the epitome of the dashing Euro gentleman (from Switzerland!) and he's been in the game so long. People want to see his...

    No other USA runner does that much (except Rodgers, but he's only going 100m). It's much easier for high hurdlers and field eventers.

    I'll watch either one when they come on TV, but the men's play is inferior (relatively, of course) to the women's. I'm sure it's the caliber of opponents, but the men always look disorganized and...

    If that were true, she'd have broken Joyner's record. You can't discount JJK's speed 'versatility'. Hurdling and LJ are more than just speed.

    So why is Gatlin not entered?
    Or Gillespie (1 or 2) or Norman (200) or P Francis (400) or Jager (3St) or Harrison in HJ or LJ?

    If they miss the 'final' deadline, is that it? (I would hope not).

    It's either he or Bo Jackson, who did it all (state champion decathlete!) and was bigger, stronger, and (arguably) faster (Deion was 'quicker'). Injured at 29 or he'd be even more transcendent.
