RE: Hall, Meb and Abdi to run 2013 Boston Marathon
Yup. I was responding to the person who said they wanted to see the best "OF" the world, not the best "IN" the world. Since they didn't want to just see the best of the US and wanted to see what the whole world had to offer. For this you watch the Olympics. Good effort though buddy.

...to the other response about East Africans. There are numerous posts debating whether or not people feel that these guys are "American" enough. It's been beat to death and I'm not going to debate this here. Try to pay attention to the thread. Here we are discussing the inclusion of US citizens "Meb, Ryan and Abdi" versus East Africa citizens such as Mutai.
