Boston marathon broadcast: shovel, shovel, shovel

Did anyone watch this? They couldn't cover the whole race. No talk about the top 10. An American won the men's (Africans paid off?) so they couldn't mention anything else. Big celebration of last year ...

Actually, Meb Keflezighi was born in Africa

Born in Eritrea, the horn of Africa, but came to the US when he was 12 years old. He is a legitimate world class marathon racer and took Silver at the 2012 Olympics in London. That being said, he was fading in the race and was lucky to win giving up almost 90 seconds in the last few miles. American now I suppose, but from Africa originally. Now his Sketcher shoe endorsement will go way up. It's commercial time for America.

The run was slow

For a perfect day to race ... Yes I know I'm cynical about the result. Why would the others let him go half way in at that pace?
