    Re: Meb Keflezighi... Never been so ****** an Ken Miller!

    Apparently Miller isn't alone. Found this Darren Rovell article from back in 2009.

    Really?

    So this dude has been here since age 12 and a citizen since 1998 and he's not a legit American?

    Anyone who makes that sort of comment is an ***hole. Dude looks and sounds like he loves his counrty to me . Miller was out of line.

    Re: Meb Keflezighi... Never been so ****** an Ken Miller!

    I listened to Ken's little rant yesterday on the subject, and I think he kinda had a point. But a poorly made one. I got to thinking about these Olympians who jump countries because it would seem they couldn't make he team in their own. There is a bit of nationality obscurity in international sports nowadays. But this isn't one of those cases.

    I can't think of a good example internationally - so I'll play the state game. My wife was born in Miami, but moved back to Iowa before she was 1, and lived here her entire life since. Now by Miller's logic - she's Floridian, not Iowan. My brother was born and lived in Iowa til he was in his early 20's, Illinois til his early 30's, and the past 5 or so in California? Iowan?

    It's a fuzzy line. But this guy's been here the majority of his life and would appear to be proud to be an American. Good for him.

    I'm actually a big Ken Miller fan, but he might have wanted to have chosen his words more carefully there.

    The line's not fuzzy in his case at all;

    He became a US citizen his senior year at UCLA after residing in the US since he was a boy. He's American as baseball and apple pie.

    He sure as hell belongs here more than Ken Miller.

    The gall of some people, coming to America through proper channels, learning our language and culture and becoming productive members of society...

    We all know that if his name was Bob Harrington there would be no discussion.

    BTW, Meb has won the Bix 7 in Davenport twice.

    I wish this surprised me, but Ken's been extra old man grumpy lately.

    Doesn't sound like you have a lot of company in the Ken Miller Fan Club....

    Nope, not at all. I have adopted nephews from Russia and they are American to me too, I am just saying that we are eager to claim "winners" as Americans but if you saw Meb on the street you would be like, yep he is African.

    Ken is probably just upset that he failed the test.
