LeBron has decided to move on.
Well, not “decided,” exactly, since the decision was made by his handlers, who’ve worked a deal that will find LeBron next doing his thing in Melbourne, Florida.
Fans in Akron and nearby Cleveland are predictably disheartened, since they had enjoyed visiting the big cat at the zoo. This is not a knock on Quicken Loans Arena, where the Cavaliers play, because the LeBron to which I’m referring is a jaguar, who has been shipped to the Brevard Zoo in the hopes that he’ll father little cats.
Whether LeBron James will follow his namesake out of Ohio remains unclear.
Anthony Gaskill has says he didn’t mean to mislead anybody at the London Marathon.
“I simply walked through a short cut to the end of the course where my belongings were waiting for me,” he said.
Mr. Gaskill’s belongings were unavailable for comment, but the 69 year old runner’s appearance at the finish line of the marathon certainly confused the timers, who were initially prepared to celebrate him as the fastest retired competitor. Then, based on observations made throughout the race, they figured Mr. Gaskill would have to have run the last 13 miles in under an hour. This would have made him the fastest marathoner of all time, regardless of age.
They would have told him to pick up his belongings and go home, but of course he’d already done that.
