This to me is clearly a dig at Rupp. My question is where do you think it comes from?
Bob Kennedy says:
Will you watch the Trials?
BK: I will definitely pay attention to it. I am a big fan of Meb [Keflezighi], even though he has already qualified in the marathon, and hopefully he can win another medal. I really admire [Matt] Tegenkamp and [Chris] Solinksky. I know Chris is hurt, but I admire their passion and fearless approach to the sport.
1. He doesn't relate to rupp as well because he's more of a 10k/marathon guy whereas teg/solinksy are more like Kennedy was.
2. Kennedy hates Al sal for some reason/possibly thinks they are dirty.
3. Kennedy views himself as a blue-collar runner and rupp as yuppie.
