I'm a very bad troll apparently.
You are a troll!
I noticed that the topic creator conveniently avoided replying to this post. Definitely a troll.
Funny, I seem to recall an NCAA Cross country Championship he won.
YOU should break an American record and then you can speak of "WE."
Why don't we start by getting mad when we lose races to them and use that as motivation to beat them instead of prouncing around celebrating second place.
I know! Did you see how "excited" Flanagan was when she got only the bronze medal? It's as if she won something when she didn't win the race at all! Same thing for Willis -- he got his ass handed to him by Ramzi, and yet he's going on and on about what an honour it is, blah blah blah, and he didn't even win the race! Why did he even bother showing up, right?
My thread was deleted the other day which read "Should American records count if you lose the race". I guess the moderators where offended.
Let's run posters complain all day that the African's are beating us down and how can we be better than them and such. Why don't we start by getting mad when we lose races to them and use that as motivation to beat them instead of prouncing around celebrating second place.
Did you see the Arizona Cardinal's dancing after the Steelers beat them? Exactly, the cardinal's let the loss sting so that they can come back stronger next time. They didn't lose to the steeler's and say we broke a record for best Cardinal's team. American distance running needs to wake up. Flanagan and Rupp should have been pissed losing to the African's not celebrating there records. There is plenty of time to celebrate when there careers are over.
