Track & Field News Annual Issue

It just came in the mail today. This is one of the few issues that I spend a lot of time looking through. It's mostly stats and rankings, and so leaves little to write about.

One item did catch my attention, simply because of the awkward and misleading way it was written. Referring to the #1 and #3 world-ranked pole vaulters:
Top-rated Australian vaulters Steve Hooker and Paul Burgess say they will swear off love until 2008.
You have to read a bit further before you realize they're talking about women, and not each other.

Did you compile a ranking for the 2006 American marathoners?

The last two were awesome!
