And of course right now we have the Swimming trials going on. And OMG how awesome and awful was the men's 50m free last night?! I'm pretty sure Eamon Sullivan did the same undergrad at the same place as me which is my only claim to his fame. But still! OMG to qualify for the team is awesome. To cheer for him as he was so close to chasing down the red line was fun. To see his face as he hit the wall, turned to check the clock and discovered he had missed the world record time by 0.02 seconds was heartbreaking. He looked like he had lost and maybe he would have preferred that he did. 0.02 of a second between elation and defeat. That's swimming for you.
AND I LOVE IT.
