    This does sound like a "hollywood story"; he robbed "Track Town Pizza" of all places!

    I apologize for bringing this back to the top, but I'm reading my SI that just came in the mail, and there on page 20 is Mr. Gill. I guess bogus publicity is better than none.

    Re: Real life Jericho Mile

    allow me to repeat what i said on the other thread on this insipid topic:

    <<in a word--ôk, a sentence-anybody want to buy a bridge?

    i am told this silliness went around the lesser boards a couple of months back... i had hoped this one was above dallying in such silliness>>

    i repeat: join the real world people. that, or start a thread about the validity of crop circles, if you know what I mean, and I think you do. There is no friggin' easter bunny.

    You won't be seeing this guy at any trials(unless there is a jury involved). The guy has'nt run any races in 10+ years, spends too much time building strength, and weighs 170 pounds. His first invitation to a big race will be his last.

    Now there's an idea for a prime time special a match race "con vs. nut".

    That's might finally get the American people to watch track!

    Are you listening Craig?

    I figure he has about as much a chance as weirdo Gabe Jennings, well, maybe not even that much. I think I would cheer louder for the ex-con than the biking goofball, but that is just me.

    I guess in prison you have to run fast especially if King Homo is chasing you.

    Going off to a prison isn't too different than being relatively isolated from distractions in an East African village...
    Lots of good things can happen when allowed that level of focus, even if forced.

    Tom- i just hope that he doesn't warrant an invite to pre until he runs 3:40/3:58 or bettter, even if it does make for good tv. better to have an extra highschooler, even if it keeps guys like me out, rather than a slow con. sorry for the negativity but....

    Hey, US mile running is in such desperate shape why not recruit runners from the pen.
    I see a new event emerging - "The death row mile".

    For every 34-year old American who THINKS he can run 3:35, there's a 18-year old Kenyan who CAN run 3:29. Daydreams are nice, they're just not real.
