He's Got Our Vote
“But on a basic level, [Meb] Keflezighi couldn’t possibly win this Boston Marathon, because he was too old (a month shy of his 39th birthday), too often injured and, frankly, too slow even on his best day.”
“… Then something remarkable happened, something that defies explanation to this day and softens the anger of the most cynical among us. An American won the race. An American with a bib on which he had written in tiny letters the names of the three killed in the 2013 bombing and the MIT police officer killed later. An American who had for many years not long ago, suffered the indignity of criticism that he wasn’t American enough to represent the U.S.A. on the international athletic stage. For this victory, the period — nay, the exclamation mark — at the end of Boston’s yearlong expression of recovery and resolves, Meb Keflezighi should be Sports Illustrated’s 2014 Sportsman of the Year.”
