obliviously this is hypothetical, like wishing for Muhammad Ali vs Rocky Marciano fight, it just isn't going to happen. But is it just me or does Ryan Hall remind you of a young Bill Rodgers, in looks, running ability, demeanor and his aw-shucks attitude?
While on this how many besides me wish the Ryan would have run his debut marathon at Boston instead of London? I think he would have won even in those stormy conditions and in the process become a household name. Instead he and his agent opted for a fast time in London which was all but invisible to the average American. One of the most often questions asked when someone hears that you are a marathoner is have you run Boston? Not sure if Ryan will run a spring marathon with the Olympics coming up but I hope he runs and wins the Boston Marathon in April and becomes a household name just like Bill Rodgers did when he first won in 1975.
