    Indianapolis' bid might be the most interesting:
    Better than the NHL New Years game!

    Greensboro, with a Myrtha pool in the Coliseum, and the GAC next door for warmup. Saves $$$$$ as you only have to install one pool. Plus we know how to party in NC!

    I'm hoping for St. Louis (good excuse to go back to my old stomping grounds) or Omaha (where I could catch a few games of the College World Series too). I figure I just need to drop 45 seconds or so off my 100 back to qualify for the meet.

    Or, watch the trials and hang around for Nationals, after it's over.
    I'm guessing it will be hosted at the same pool, like this past year, in Omaha.

    That's what I'm hoping. ... and why I'd love it if they host it in either St. Louis or Omaha.
