Re: NYC marathon canceled
Are we missing the obvious here?
I think this marathon was cancelled internally BEFORE the storm actually hit.
NY's beloved mayor (yeah right) calculated that NY state would make more $$$'s by having people fly in from all over the world on the pretense there would be a marathon.
Then, when the majority of folks have flown in...Pow, how like me now, he cancels the marathon.
"When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade" they figure, so... they will eat/drink/party and see NY while they are here until it is time for them to return home.
Brings in the revenue without all the expenses ASSociated with running (pun intended) a marathon.
An S.B. move if ever there was one but a crafty move from a business standpoint.
