The marathon, which was 40 years ago yesterday, was fun to watch again. I thought the telecast was kind of quaint. Chris Schenkel, who knew zero about marathons, calmly describing the race as it goes through a park. Jim McKay was enthusiastic and then the over caffeinated Erich Segal is humorous.
The part where Shorter and Segal are on a jog discussing Shorter's life was interesting. Especially when his father comes up in the conversation and weird, in light of what we now know what their relation was really like.
