Subject: RE: Famed Millrose Games May Leaven Garden
yeah ive been to millrose twice. The first time we had a freshmen at UNC who I had coached in HS running at the big college meet at the armory the same weekend so what the heck go to millrose as well. The college meet was by far more interesting/exciting (unfortuneately from the pro fans perspective). Then this year we had a girl run in the HS mile so again obv go up and watch. Outside of the HS stuff the pro stuff is bland- although this year was better i thought then 5 years ago or whenever we went last time. Still basically the shotput at the beginning and the mile at the end are the two big attractions- everything else is just meh. Im as big a track person as anyone I know but you sort of feel like youre forcing yourself to be excited about the races just because its Millrose and youre supposed to be rather than because theyre exciting.
People say Mary W should be head of USATF anyway. I think putting them in charge would be a good thing. Were always yakking about what changes need to be made in track to make it more fan friendly at least give those guys a shot. If they make it anything like NY Marathon that would be a very good thing.
One other thing about the fan interest id rather have 7000 people trying to get into a 4000 seat arena then having people run in front of a 1/2 empty arena. I went to the reebok meet in Boston when Haile ran the 3k and there were prob only 3000? people there the place was stuffed with just awesome amount of energy,noise and cheering. Its better for there to actually be demand for tickets then maybe at some point it can move back.
