The has-been who saw fear in the eyes of El G after taking a humiliating and well deserved ass kicking from him.

I can't bring myself to say the name He Who Scared El G, much like my distaste for She Who Saved Herself For Zurich.

I think that Gabe was probably just off his lithium that day. It was pretty weird, even by his standards.

Personally, I think that Gabe and Suzy were good for the sport, although they sometimes said some pretty cringe-inducing things in post-race interviews. Both of them could have been bigger sports figures, but Gabe was Gabe, and Suzy was possibly denied superstar status within the U.S. by the evil RJ.

Aj Acosta is WAY too cocky...he's a Senior in high school, 18 (maybe) years old...and has not accomplished anything post-HS. granted he has not had the chance yet, but I do not feel he will either. This was not a very deep field at footlockers. He will probably get hurt and blame the rest of his sorry collegiate career on his ONE naggin injury. Let's just say this...He's not Withrow, Ritz, Torres, etc. HE"S NOTHING!!!!!

Don't know him personally, but the cockiest thing I've seen at a race was Chris Thompson pulling tongues at the camera all the way down the home straight whilst winning the AAA 5k in 2004 in the world class time of 13.40 something. Maybe he's not cocky though, maybe he's just a dick.

That brings up the question...is it alright to be as cocky as you want if you can win the races and post the times to back it up?

Back in the day it had to be Dennis Mitchell.

Carl Lewis was also cocky as hell but less vocal about it.

Dennis was more in your face.


For distance runners:

Marty Liquori had a cocky edge to him;

Shorter did as well although somewhat more quiet;

Pre definately did, often vocal;

How about my favorite, Nourredine Morceli:
"When I step to the line, my mind is filled with questions ... Who will be second? Who will be third?"

I love that guy, my second favorite runner (after John Walker).

As for US distance runners, how about Teddy M?
