    "12:23 p.m.: Ramaala and Tergat ran stride for stride up Park Drive to the finish. Tergat briefly fell behind Ramaala, but then drew even again. Coming up to the line, both men lunged, but it was Tergat who broke the tape as Ramaala tumbled to the pavement. Both were given the same time, 2:09:31 unofficially, but Paul Tergat is the ING New York City Marathon 2005 champion."

      Something Ramaala is going to have to add to his workouts.

              Watched both races on Eurosport. Ramaala leaned at the "tape" and took a nasty spill when crossing the finish line... one Tergat-to-the-finish battle reminiscent of Tergat-Geb on the track.

                Just so you know, we hate you Europeans and your 'I watched T&F on TV' stuff!! :evil: :x :evil:

                I just checked the old TiVo schedule - we get a 1-hour highlights package on NBC starting in about 30 minutes. Sounds like this race has some real highlights. :lol:

                    He had enough presence of mind to stop his watch while he was on the ground!

                      Doesn't everyone? Running joke with the guys I run with is the fact that I have taken several nasty spills on ice, a couple of which had me airborne, and I will always stop my watch before I hit the ground.

                        Great races both sides and the ladies chair was wheel to wheel for a long while.
                        I hope that the Marine Cpl. who sang the Anthem shoots better than she sings.
                        All my ribbing aside I'm glad to hear Larry Rawson is doing well enough to help call the race.

                            I actually enjoy the variable weather conditions up here. Makes it more interesting. Anywhere from a 30 below windchill to a 110 degree heat index. I actually think I prefer the cold to the heat. You can dress for the cold. You can't undress for the heat.

                              Just watched the tape. It was painful to hear about and even more painful to watch. And that wasn't a lean. That was a collapse.
