Lance Armstrong will run the Boston Marathon, Boston pops a boner

I'm not sure if it's possible for me to be more sick of the Boston's arrogance, it's inferiority complex towards New York and it's superiority complex towards the rest of mankind.  

Lance Armstrong qualified and signed up for the Boston Marathon.  He's run the New York Marathon twice. No big deal.  Unless you count the fact that Boston thinks they are a big deal.

"For him to qualify in New York and then to take that time and apply it to Boston says a lot about what Boston means to the sport of marathoning," said Jack Fleming, a spokesman for the Boston Athletic Association. "It's tough to call your marathon career complete without running Boston."

All he's doing is running your Marathon. He's not giving you a hand job.  Seriously, stop annoying us Boston.
