|Subject: ||RE: Men's Marathon Trials to Be Held on Sunday on Traditional NYC Course|
Do you really believe that an Olympic Trials race held in NYC will not receive greater attention from the national media--for example, the NY Times, which is now essentially a national newspaper--than if the race were held in Akron?

And I guarantee that having the Trials in NY at the time of the regular marathon will garner vastly more coverage and thereby, one hopes, greater appreciation, more fans, etc., than if the race was to be held in, say, Akron.
Prediction: The networks will give the same coverage they usually do. 10 minutes on the elite race of NY, added OT coverage totalling another 10 minutes and the majority of the condensed coverage will be amount to a NY tourism promo and clips of costume wearing jackasses in the open race.
If you think interest is going to rise nationally because it's being held in NY, you need to go soak your head.
