    its not normal for the mayor to back down. i think he should be examined; he may be ill.

    It was doomed the moment footage of the generators in Central Park hit the public

    ...i have a friend in staten island, hes been bitching about the taxes to me for a decade. and the bridge toll to go to his own god damn home. ny state is one of the highest tax rates around but metro ny you just gotta learn how to walk with your hands grasped firmly around your ankles when it comes to taxes.

    The notion that he wanted to keep it going was disgusting and a really inappropriate choice. Anyone who disagrees is probably a runner, and like Lance Armstrong, just a selfish asshole. Use those resources and help the people that are out of power, food, and shelter.

    Mike was ranting against the marathon today from the word go. He kept repeating the same thing over and over and was his usual belligerent self against any caller who disagreed with him. Francesa would not succeed in any other city. He basically lets the caller speak for a few seconds and then hangs up on them. There is no dialogue, it is a Mike Francesa monologue. You can get away with that when your board is loaded with blinking lights of callers waiting to get in. The "Fan" never has an open board. Chris Russo often has no callers waiting to speak with him so when he takes a call he has to milk it.

    As a runner, i feel i can say this... marathon runners are psychos.

    The original runner (Pheidippides) died after completing it. Its bad for your body.

    I try to run 10-15mi per week. The longest ive ran is a little over 10.5mi on one run.

    if you need to puke or shit yourself, your doing something wrong (any activity, running included).

    Just because you can do something doesnt mean you should. Oh and if its taking you 6+ hours youre not a runner, youre a very slow jogger.

    It's a shame they canceled it. Beth was SO planning to stand on her balcony and yell: "You're ALL winners!" to all the runners down below.

    Exactly. They do that shit over here every year too and it's annoying as fuck. The entire city is in chaos. If there was something cool to see I could tolerate it, but it's just a bunch of assholes running around.


    FUCK EM.

    The cancelled Marathon didn't go entirely to waste. They rounded up all the Ethiopians, cooked them and served them to hungry New Yorkers in lower Manhattan.
