I know it’s very, very unlikely (and that’s an understatement), but I’m pulling for Dwyer to bust out a top 2 upset in the 200. After the 400, he should be top 6, but I’d like him to knock one of the powerhouses out.

You know what’s sweet? Watching a Swimming World trials update video that’s preceded by a Swim Outlet commercial featuring the mellifluous voice of Mel Stewart! That must drive them crazy.

You guys look like you’re having way more fun.

Mel Stewart’s face and demeanor remind me of Will Arnett, that guy from the TV comedy series Arrested Development

Gotta get some sulfur hexafluoride before one of these and it’ll be that much more apt a comparison.

Braden Keith is so good in giving objective analyses and prediction.

I think these three guys should be the commentators for the olympics.
Garrett has enough enthusiasm and energy, but not overly done like that Rowdy Gaines

Atleast one of them should replace Andrea Kramer for post race interviews!

Garrett and Mel are seasoned pros.

Mel, you’re lookin’ pretty fit these days, no?

Braden,
really? You don’t think that it will take sub59 to win tonight?

I’ve rewatched the semis from last night, Bootsma was actually creating less turbulence in the water around her than Franklin, which I found extremely interesting. Franklin definitely had the more imperfect race, she was really short on her strokes going into the wall. I feel that these simple corrections could already put her in the 58.8 territory. I’m expecting a show tonight

Also, it looked like Soni has somewhat changed her stroke? Not sure if anyone else is seeing this, it seems like it has more pop. However, she looked like she went all out tonight, not sure how much faster she can get.

Whoa whoa whoa, “CanuckSwimmer” won yesterday? WE LET A CANADIAN BEAT US?!?!?!

This is ever so depressing.

puuleese NBC hire Garret for the after swim questioning! This is ridiculous with Andrea Kramer. Liven this thing up with a dynamic personality.
