BBC: Spare seats in the house

When Maurice Greene ran one the greatest 100m in history, there was plenty of warm applause but no standing ovation.

"For the people sitting in the stands here, I equate it to people in the USA who had never been exposed to ice hockey before they got an NHL franchise," said Kilburn.

I'd equate it to Canadians not liking Maurice Greene, or most of the arrogant showboating PED-popping USA track athletes.
