This is the place where you can talk about the pics, the sport, the weather, and the lack of pictures of deck changes on this site.

Swimming This Weekend

There are a couple of excellent meets this weekend and I have been sitting here (cyberly) with Sarah (ICO), Terrie (RBO) and Aims, watching Omega Timing for the results of the US Open at Auburn University. And Hy-Tek for the Texas Invitational at University Of Texas - Austin.
It is too crazy because there are really fast swimmers at both meets and I have to know how it is going! It is nice to see the return of Pieter Van den Hoogenband to competition. He's competing at the US Open. He took the top qualifying time in the 200m Free this morning. I wish I were there to see Klete Keller try to catch him. The rest of the Wolverine guys are at Texas where Arizona is doing well. The Texas meet has people swimming all kinds of strange events with Ian Crocker doing 100m back and Aaron Peirsol on the 500 free and 200 fly (wtf?). If you like consistancy there are Kellers and Peirsols kicking butt at both meets. Hayley Peirsol and Klete Keller at Auburn and Aaron Peirsol and Kalyn Keller at Texas. I wish I could go but I am off to San Francisco this weekend. Those of you who live nearby should go to one of these meets. And take pictures. If you have a photobucket you could share with the rest of us! I'd love to see Hoogie after a year off for surgery and marriage.
I know there are pics from Texas Invitational up at Brendan Hansen Online, Texas-Trio, and SwimStars. Go check 'em out!
And go see swimming!
