Bill Rodgers (1947~)

[Track&Field/Athletics; Olympics>Athlete]
Not signed
In Person
Yesterday and Friday evening were busy days in Springfield. In addition to trying to find out if the George Clooney and Matt Damon rumors were true (they were not!), I spent some time with four-time Boston and four-time NYC marathon champion Bill Rodgers at the Springfield Road Runners Club annual "Monster Mash." "Boston Billy" likes . . . uh, "loves" to talk about his running experiences. As he signed a 1979 Boston Marathon poster, he carefully detailed each person shown on the poster, as well as why he took his cap off the last several hundred yards of the race (he thought he'd be faster). He also signed a Sports Illustrated and talked extensively about the 1978 race depicted on the cover.
