Nighttime Snack: Day 2 From Palo Alto

Picture this packed to absolute capacity with people.
Another day in paradise, another nighttime musing from Nationals in Palo Alto. Here are some quick hit thoughts from the meet:

-If you've been on the Matt Grevers bandwagon, you may pick up a few extra members tonight. Grevers looked smooth and in control going 53.96 this morning.

-The most impressive 200 fly I saw this morning was University of South Carolina's Michael Flach, bouncing back from a disappointing 400 yesterday to make a surprise appearance in the "A" final. He came into the meet seeded with a 2:02 and went 1:59

-I hope we see more out of the women's 100 backstroke tonight- the field certainly has enough star power even with some of the swimmers tired from Shanghai

-Overall results are really fast or really slow depending on how you look at it. Slow from the perspective that the top times are nothing to shout about, fast if you look at the overall depth of the meet. If you're following from my original preview blog, we haven't seen any significant breakout swim yet.
