1) You can watch the livestream here. Which is awesome all on its own. But I’m pretty sure Al Trautwig (aka the J. K. Simmons of sports) is doing the call.
2) This piece on the 1982 marathon is amazing. One of my favorite pieces of sports writing ever.
Update: In case you missed it, highlights included:
* Americans simultaneously leading the men’s and women’s races, deep into the course.
* An unheralded American man (Dathan Ritzenhein) running the race of his life.
* The winning move coming from a counter-move around the 24-mile mark.
Unrelated, but sports related: TT is going to be an asset for the Eagles. Kelly’s offense is essentially Urban Meyer’s Florida offense brought to the NFL.
