Reebok Grand Prix Start Lists....NOW UP!!

After waiting and waiting and waiting, Reebok has finally answered the numerous hand written notes that I have mailed in the past week (I should try this email thing jeremy tells me about). They posted the start lists today for the Reebok Grand Prix, which begins in THREE DAYS! Why would anyone care who is racing anyway? Races and athletes of interest after the jump, if you're into that kind of thing.


MEN'S 100 METERS
The Premier event in New York City this weekend, unless you like to watch four self-involved, middle-aged cliches tote overpriced bags through the meatpacking district. I know I do! Oh that Miranda is so independent and saucy.

Would it kill Jeremy Wariner to show up? I think he's just afraid to hit the rock.
