Athing Mu & Donavan Brazier 600m Greatness, Drew Hunter from Slow Heat, Nike NOP Lovefest, TV Blunders, Kejelcha Mile Preview

We take a look back at a great USA indoors where Athing Mu and Donavan Brazier excelled, the NOP delivered, and Shelby Houlihan was stopped. Audio of 2 big blunders from the TV broadcast, a look ahead at Yomif Kejelcha's WR attempt in the mile in Boston, and we wonder why no one wants to actually go to track meets.
