No I wasn't. You said that. I was just saying I didn't get it. There may be a perfectly reasonable reason why he couldn't keep up with them, even if they sped up for a minute and then slowed back down to the run pace. It's just the facts aren't enough for me to know what actually happened and why he couldn't make contact with them. The same applies for Rob's run. It is the lack of detail and explanation that is the problem. Hopefully more will come out soon

You and coachKev remind me of myself 20-so years ago. A buddy of OJ Simpson lived in my building and would frequently talk to OJ. He was one of the nicest, most personable people I had ever met. He remembered my name and always asked me about what I was up to. If they went out to eat he would bring me back dessert. OJ was one of the coolest guys I had ever met. And I thought he was the greatest.

So when the trial happened, I was in total disbelief and argued strongly with friends that there was no way he could do that. I even lost friends over arguments - I felt that strong of my observations of him.

As time went by he got even nicer and more thoughtful. Right after the trial he moved to Miami but whenever he came back in town he would stop by and say hello. Still, always smiling and being genuine.

But as time went on I realized that I had been so taken away by his charm that I never really looked at the facts surrounding the case. And 20 years later I feel awful for my defense of the guy.

I am in no way comparing OJ to this bloke,l. I'm comparing your thought pattern to mine 20 years ago.
