Our topics:
1. An enjoyable broadcast of World Cross Country!
2. I Did notice a small fan base at the event.
3. I Also noticed a dearth of European teams at the World Cross.

4. Courses must be in cold weather, with snow, mud, and hellacious 12k courses. That is part of the tradition. In the last two years, cross country was in very hot and humid conditions (Bathhurst, Australia did a fine job), and the almost manicured courses made that way for TV have not been drawing either participants or fans.

5. The Pasteurization of cross country has made it a track race on grass. That is not good for global support of the sport.
6. And you have a CHOICE on going over hay bales? Come on!
7. Kudos to the US, UK, and Australia, bringing teams, some from afar.
