Subject: RE: NYC marathon on TV?
Once upon a time they covered it live, but the ratings apparently just aren't there. Go figure: NASCAR gets ratings (watching crashes, near crashes and fights & feuds between drivers and crews) and people watch machines going 'round in a circle for hours, but marathons/road races do not.
So, perhaps we need to have the runner rumble on 4th? Maybe a fist fight between Meb and Tergat? Perhaps one of the leaders spins out on the Queensboro Bridge and falls over the side?
A more interesting note is that track and field telecasts have in recent years outdrawn tennis on tv, but guess which sport gets more tv exposure - yep, unless it is the Olympics, tennis will get coverage before athletes running on the track in world leading times.
