This is going to be a fun one, but, a request for Mr. Biondi – let’s make this thing really interesting and have you leverage your Berkeley connections to get Nathan, Anthony and Natalie down to swim the meet. Better yet, you can’t let those Texas guys have all the glory with their Fastest Man in Texas event. There’s no Grand Prix or other ‘big event’ in March for the post-grad sprinter set – use your star power to get them to Simi Valley this weekend.

If I were rich I would seriously consider flying in just to support this. Geez anything to get out of the frozen Northeast and to sunny California.

Always good to remember the history of the sport.
