Boston Marathon Runners Soaked & Trash Baggin' In Crazy Rain Storm

4/16/2018 8:43 AM PDT

Running the Boston Marathon is already hard as hell  ... and that's without being caught in a TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR like the runners in Beantown are Monday!

The field of about 30,000 competitors are gonna have to be Boston Strong to make it through today's race -- attempting to run 26-plus miles through a damn flood and winds approaching 40 MPH. 

Race officials also say it's the coldest marathon in 30 years ... with a starting temp of 38 degrees.

It was a pretty crazy scene at the starting line -- athletes fitted in bandanas, ponchos and trash bags -- and it's only expected to get wetter with the rain picking up in the afternoon. 

Watch your steps, people. 

Ex-Boston College RB: X-Rated Recruiting Parties Ain't New ... I've Got Video Proof

EXCLUSIVE

A former Boston College football player says strippers and underage boozing is nothing new when it comes to recruiting players ... and claims he's got the video to prove it. 

We spoke with ex-BC running back Jamall Anderson -- who says he committed credit card fraud to fund illegal recruiting parties to entice top players to join the BC family. 

Which brings us to the video ... which Anderson claims was shot on campus in 1995 and shows various football players grinding with strippers, taking shots and one guy even passes out in a bathroom.

"What you see on the video is just us outta control. We just did it all," Anderson says. 

We reached out to Boston College and a rep told us, "This 22 year old video, which is alleged to have taken place at Boston College, depicts unauthorized and unacceptable behavior that does not reflect the culture of BC or the standards to which our student-athletes are held."

Anderson says he goes into greater detail about the debauchery on campus in his book, "The Best Bet" -- and says he's coming forward about everything so future athletes can learn from his mistakes. 

Ex-Boston Guitarist Sued More Than A Feeling ... You're Ripping Me Off!

Breaking News

The founder of the '70s band Boston has more than a feeling that his ex-guitarist is ripping him off ... and that's why he's suing the guy.

Boston founder Tom Scholz says former axe-man Barry Goudreau -- a member from 1976-1979 -- is committing musical blasphemy by using the band's name to promote his solo career.

Let's go way back in time ... when Tom gave Barry a severance package to leave the band  ... including 20% of the royalties for the band's first two albums.  According to the lawsuit,  Barry agreed to leave the Boston name alone for good.

Now Tom says Barry has been trading on the name ... even performing their songs at his shows.

But really, all Tom wants is to have his peace of mind. And lots of money.
