Tracksters on TV

The new season of Survivor will have an Eastern Michigan University runner (1:52 PR) as one of the "castaways". But for how long?

The DIY Network has been running a small home improvement "short story" during commercial breaks that features the family of 1992 Olympic decathlete Aric Long. His kids are (predictably) involved in innumerable sports and their equipment overwhelmed the family's garage. Note that Long trumpeted his wife's 17 swimming All-American awards but barely mentioned his own accomplishments.
