      olaf usually swims at the u of m this weekend but thanks to the grand prix meet minnesota did not host their invite this year.

      I checked out the meet (with Mac and Mini-Chub)… only hung around from about the 200 Back to the 100 Free.

      Few observations…

      Diving was earlier in the day, so it didn’t interrupt the meet… which was nice.

      St. Thomas has a pretty big team.

      Jake Burgess taking down Hardy in the 100 was the best race I saw.

      They sold cammo swimsuits at the meet.

      Matthew Moore taking down Tapia was a good race too.

      Nick Frost was leading after the 50 in the 100 Breast, but really died (30-38). Then he won the 200 (his first 100 was close to his 100 open time). If he can figure out how to back half his 100 in the open, he could push Stark for the relay spots and maybe be top 8 at conference.

      Mac (the school) is getting closer and closer to putting together a solid relay. Jeff Yamashita went a 52.03 100 Free.

      Mac (the school) had a lot of fans. Even had shirts that said something to the affect of bleeding orange and blue.

      Some chick swam with like a broken foot (did a push-start and one legged turns) and still swam pretty well (broke a minute I think in the 100 Free… which is good for a girl, right?).

      Guy from SMU with the super-sweet tat swam. Mini-Chub and I debated whether his arm was covered in flowers or fake bullet holes. Make up your own mind at conference.

      St. Kates should post the mens records at the pool.

      What is the male counterpart to St. Kate’s swimming? I know St. Ben’s has St. John’s, what’s the analog here? I don’t know that they have to post the men’s records either. I don’t recall seeing the Blazer records at St. John’s last time I was there.

      Don’t know why an 8 and a ) makes an emoticon. It was a 30-38. I will never use an emoticon again.

      As for St. Kates. They used to be tied to St. Thomas up until the 70s I think when St. Thomas started letting in women. Then the ties loosened. Although you can still take a lot of classes at either UST or St. Kates if you are enrolled in one of the schools.

      I’m pretty sure St. Ben’s records are on the wall at SJU (since that is their home pool, right?). Wonderboy or Mini-Chub I’m sure can confirm.

      I’ll have to defer to mini-chub on this. I only remember seeing the mens records on the wall at SJU but back when I swam, both CSB and SJU practiced separately. I’m pretty sure CSB still has their own pool. Incidentally, there are a list of “unofficial” records kept on the back of the record board at SJU. Pat Haws used to compile practice records, such as the 1650 yard kick w/fins. He was a hell of a motivator.

      No women’s records at SJU pool.

      Good points Chapel.

      Nick Frost is really tall, and could end up being fast.

      Nate Young is really tall, and is really fast.

      The dude had “flower” tats and bad turns.

      Girl with the broken foot should have just sat it out. Though it was the most interesting thing that happened at the meet.

      What sort of bad decisions in my life have led me to being legitimatly excited about some guy named Jeff Yamashita almost breaking 52 in the 100 free?

      I am also disappointed St. Cates does not post men’s records. But only because I check every time to see if I still have one, but never bring it up because I know you would, legitimatly, call me a huge loser for checking.

      We’ve got to come up with better ways to spend Saturday afternoons. I suggest getting wasted. Though your brother, Speedo-Mini-Chub, did combine both. Ever since that Olaf kid tried to tell on me for bringing my flask to their “dry” pool, I’ve been gun shy.
