    You can add '76 Olympic PVer, Terry Porter, to the team. He spent 8 years in prison for rape.

    I remember my dad telling me that Eddie Anderson, who played the role of "Rochester" on the Jack Benny Show had a son that was a champion high hurdler in high schook in California, but that he got into trouble with drugs and went to jail. He may even have ended his own life as I recall.

    If you were to incarcerate every singer who ever mangled the national anthem, you'd need a prison the size of Montana.

    I don't know if it is still there, but the site also had a short film clip sample of his "acting ability".

    There isn't a single woman on the team. Think we'll have to bend the rules and use the Kenya Prisons Team featured on iaaf.org today.

    My story is nearly word-for-word from Tom Derderian's history of the Boston Marathon. I merely assumed that he did his homework on that one, since the rest of the book was meticulously researched. As for Holm, you've got to remember the attitudes towards women and men in athletic competition in the 30's; one was seen as a nusaince while the other was of prime importance.
