This is great stuff. Happy for you white lightning. You seem like a genuine nice guy. You've been a consistent poster for a long time and you really love track especially the sprints. You've kept the faith, even after so many white sprinters would show promise then not progress and fade away.
Time will tell how this Boling kid turns out, but sometimes life is just about moments, and he's given us some good ones already.
Thanks to "The Hock". Very nice of you to say that and your a great guy too. I appreciate that some posters appreciate my hard work in the track section. Yes it is one of my very favorite
sports. It is the purest of sports going back to the ancient days. Ever since I read the book "Taboo" by the idiot author, John Entine, I have been hell bent on disproving the lies and stereotypes
that whites face in the most popular sports. One thing great about track is that the clock doesn't lie. Don't get me wrong though. Track coaches from kids to adults always try to slot whites into
different events outside of the sprints or triple jump/long jump. It is because of the stereotypes. Boling is incredible but there are other Bolings out there who never get the chance to compete. This needs
to change just like in football & basketball. Those of us here at this message board will never give up fighting for equality for our guys and girls.
Back to Matthew Boling. He will have a chance to become a national sprint champion in a few weeks. I really hope he does it. My only fear is that he competes in too many different events and the chance
of injury or fatigue is greater. Hope they only have him run the 100 and 200 meters at the national high school championships. This kid is so fun to watch! Cannot say it enough! Good luck to Matthew the rest of the season!
