ELITETRACK Best of 2008


2009 is almost upon us. 2008 was good. The emergence of Usain Bolt, Beijing Olympics, no major drug busts, and WRs in quite a handful events helped to overcome the black eye that Marion and Trevor continue to be. As we prepare to ring in the New Year, I thought it would be interesting to look at the top forum and blog postings of the last year.
