You just wait until you hear my trackside interviews (not live though) with the athletes. - Poor tone - Gravely, monotone voice - Mispronounce names - Slurring (wont be beering until after!) - Mediocre questions at best. I should never be handed a microphone and have even less business being in front of a camera (which I wont at Vic anyway). But alas! I do it because ESPN isn't buying in just yet, still a growing sport.

@Wetcoast I always enjoy Flotrack over NBC or CBC. The one problem, though, is they are not as aware as they are of US runners. How about some Canadians - Butler, Kendall or Bomba doing some announcing in Canada. These guys know a lot of the Canadian and US runners
