I would actually say that Neutral Milk Hotel is my Neutral Milk Hotel. I first heard ITAOTS as a freshman in college, and it just struck me. Since then, I've lsitened to it hundreds of times, and have actually met multiple friends by bonding over it.
I saw them live a year ago, and it was an awesome experience, but a bit different than I expected. Definitely a fun time, but they play upbeat mostly which changes the feeling of the songs.

Points are awarded based on place.
For a relay, 1st gets 40, 2nd 34, 3rd 32 and so on for the top 8 spots. The 9th team gets 18.
For an individual event, points are given based on the order you finish your heat in. This makes the prelims important, because if you do not place in the top 8 in prelims, the best you can finish is 9th regardless of your time. For the A heat, the points are 20, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11 and for the B heat they are 9, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
After the prelims, it'll be pretty easy to see if anyone has a chance to catch Michigan just based on how many A finalists we have. The one issue Michigan always has is that we have no divers that place, so we often lose ground in the diving events.
Personally, unless we get DQ'ed in a relay I don't think we can lose, but you never know.

22oz Ruination and playing NCAA Football 13 after a long day of work. I wish they still made NCAA Basketball games so I could play in preparation for tomorrow.

The prelims start at 11, and take 2-3 hours usually. The finals are at 7, and will probably also take 2-3 hours. The longest race (1650 free) is on Saturday, so that might make a little longer, but I imagine it'll be done by 9:30. The tickets for the sessions are separate, so you could come to just the prelims or finals.

If there is anyone in the Indianapolis area that wants to check out the final day (and hopefully a Michigan championship), I have an extra ticket to both sessions. I'll gladly give them away for free. If anyone is interested, email me at calvin233 at gmail.

It has been taking up a lot of battery for me lately. I have a Galaxy S3 Verizon, and I've taken to killing the app after using it. I don't know what has changed though, since it never used to do it.

Growing up in the 90's, I never thought I'd see the Tigers be in the playoffs, much less in the World Series. Here's hoping we can come through this time
