Indoor track is dead in this country, were I in Boston today I probably wouldn't have gone unless tickets were $10 or under.
sweet lou forgot to mention that with the times that the people run at Boston these days, if they were out on the course training today it was an all day affair.
i'm not sure if what was on tv was from last night or today. if it was from today...one thing to consider is A. the weather B. its the first sunday of march in boston that means 7 weeks till patriots day...most runners were out on the course training...
Not sure it's even USATF's fault. The athletes have to care first.

Something has to be done. We can't accept the current state of things. It's embarrassing. Either eliminate the meet altogether or improve the meet so that more people would actually care to come and watch.
Not seeing any connection. Nobody cares outside of relatively few hardcore fans. Where's the carry-over from those performances??
On a weekend with performances like those by Fernandez and Barringer, it's silly to declare indoor track "over." USATF just couldn't get people, athletes or spectators, to a meet in Boston, plan and simple.
except it snows in most of the northern US during the college bowl season....so there goes that plan...
