|yeah it is absolutely killing me to watch the finishing sprint of the pushrim race instead of a pack of 20 people jogging through Framingham
Imagine if other sports were run like running (or some might say as poorly as running).
In no other sport, do organizers kill the drama. The men's and women's race are going to finish within 10 minutes of each other. Imagine if instead of staggering NFL games by 3 hours, they had them finish within 10 minutes of each other.
Imagine if in the NBA finals, they had a split screen and during much of it you had the pleasure of watching the paralympics version of the sport.
I'm sure there are some great wheelchair bball guys. why doesn't David Stern get smart and show them?
I really think Boston should be all women one year, London all men. Imagine that - we could just watch one race unfold instead of having the drama killed by distracted attention and poor tv drama.
