Subject: RE: Famed Millrose Games May Leaven Garden
I suspect that the yea's and nay's fall along the lines of those who buy tickets to meets and those who read about meets.
If you are more used to reading results the times become more important than place.
Ticket buyers judge the meet by the experience they had at the event and how hardfought each medal was.
Regular meet attenders dislike moving to 168th Street, the longer ago their first Millrose was the stronger the dislike
-- -If you bought a Millrose ticket in the last few years you never saw the type Millrose Games that us older Back In The Day Millrose fans did (my first 6 or so were in The 50th Street MSG).
The old board track- a sound you will always remember-the 440y-600ys run pace seemed to set a deep harmonic undertone to the hoofbeat sound of pounding feet. For the 1000y the boards changed tone and tempo as various runners make their break on a sprint to the finish you could hear the race as well as see it.
Truth be told--- this once most vocal fan of Millrose-- stopped going two years ago when timing how long it took them to put the track together and wondering if the clerk who worked the 4x800 would miscount for the third year in a row started taking up more of my interest than who was running.
The new trend to hip-hop trashcan metal music with a shrill announcer yelling incomprehensible garble over it during the meet set me yearning for a little song from Carl...at that moment I realized how far behind me the tipping point was-- the last few years I'd been going purely out of a sense of duty.
Duty done dues paid I've seen my last Millrose
