Did you see the accordion player?

The NYC Marathon can be looked at as the world's largest carnival. There are going to be 2 million spectators cheering us on, 100 bands playing for us (including the Bishop Loughlin High School band playing, as it has since 1979, "Gonna Fly Now" the theme from the movie "Rocky") and 26.2 miles of road, including bridges, through New York City's 5 boroughs.
There are certain people who are out every year watching the race and inspiring the runners, such as Stanley Rygor, in Long Island City, Queens, who plays the accordion. I don't want to miss anything in this race - even the accordion player!
