He is off hiding from reality of the real world and stiff competition. Money isn't the only thing he's been robbed of -- how about backbone and the courage to face top level competition, get beat, work harder, and come back for more.....
I usually like your posts, Steve, but you're way off on Gabe.
Track needs more Gabes . . . crazy thinkers who appeal to a wider audience.
What Gabe is doing is unconventional, to be sure, but it is exactly what a brilliant nut like Percy Cerutty might have recommended. Cerutty was always trying to get Herb Elliott to attempt a 100-mile run.
Think of Mormon runners, who take a couple years off at Gabe's age to do a mission. You might think this would hurt the runners, except, amazingly, these runners always seem to come back stronger! Grant Robison is just the latest case.
Marion Jones is entitled to a year off. So is Gabe. Actually Marion would look funny running about now. A dude I know said he is shocked she could become pregnant because of past "abuses" on her body. So I said "what do you Mean?" He goes, "she was married to CJ Hunter, 'nuff said". What the hell does that mean? Guilty by association I guess. Hope everything is okay with her and her child. out.
agreed. I use to think jennings was a freak when I was running against him. but now I see him as a pretty ballsy dude. he did something a little out of the ordinary and if it works him he'll be a stud.
I could think of worse things.
at least he didn't drop out of college and go back to training with his lame-ass high school coach.
Rich, take a close look at that post before your last one... it says 197hgsteve whereas I am 197hjsteve. Someone is playing childish games out there. I did not send that post.
If people cannot be 1) honest, 2) adults, then this whole Message Board is going to deteriorate..look at all the idiocy of the sprintman thing. If this keeps up , either people using phony names/multiple names, plus making anti social and/or immature comments, I for one will stop participating.

Means he was on top once and she has a crushed pelvis.
This thread has certainly skewed way off-topic! Nonetheless, the last exchange requires comment. I don't believe Marion, despite her affiliation with the tarnished CJ, is/was a user (obviously that's where the innuendo is going, understandably). She can be the WFW without.
But, HYPOTHETICALLY, if she had been "abusing" there's no reason to think that would render her incapable of having children. One need look no farther than the conniving dope fiends of the DDR, where in addition to a stiff regimen of all kinds of anabolics, they discovered they could make their women even better by running them through childbirth cycle, changing the hormones. That combo worked just fine.
Of course later on they discovered that the childbirth part of it wasn't necessary, so they simply had the athletes get pregnant, then they'd have them aborted when they got past the important part in the cycle.
Nah, there's no need for the IAAF to come up with new World Records; we're all still playing under the same rules, right?
el supremo, I'll never leave. But it sure ticked me off when someone left a message, signing it with a letter different than mine. Suppose some idiot left some ridiculous message and signed it Ej Supremo ?
