The Mountain West Conference Swimming and Diving Championships begin this Wednesday at 6:00 in Oklahoma City. After a long season I am ready to rock n' roll, and get revenge on some teams (and people). I am looking forward to some fast swims from everyone, but I think this will be a great meet for our freshmen to really step up and prove themselves. Everyone is pumped up and ready to go. We leave tomorrow morning and will be returning to Provo Sunday night. I will keep updates on how everyone swims throughout the week on my twitter account: johnck22. Wish us luck as we go into the final meet of the season!!! GO COUGS!!!!

I am super excited about the mavs new acquisitions! I figured they would lose to the hot OK Thunder, but now I am worried about their next game against the Suns. Hopefully the home crowd will help out, but it might be some time before the team regains momentum and is adjusted to the new guys. Now I really want T-Mac to go to NYC before thursday, which would allow for two big-shot free agents to go to the Knicks (like Lebron and David Lee or Dwayne Wade, or even better, Lebron and Chris Bosh).

I had another, more fun, encounter with the BYU Campus Police last night. A few of us (the others will remain unnamed) went out and about on Valentine's Eve water ballooning. We were looking especially for couples and had some great luck. Our first trip out was good, but we really struggled with our aiming. We reloaded and went out again for another go-round. As we took our second trip to the dorms we saw a group of guys playing basketball. I backed my truck into the parking lot to make for a quick escape, and we unloaded a few balloons at the guys. We then flew out of the dorms parking lot and were being followed by a Dodge Caravan. I sped away, cut through a Chevron parking lot and then made a quick right trying to lose the van. Then I saw the lights, yep the van was actually an unmarked BYU Campus Police car. I pulled over and then two more campus police squad cars came for backup. Once we all realized that it was only campus police, and not the ever so hard provo police, we all felt at ease. I now have a date with the Provo City Justice Court for March 29th. The officers were actually pretty cool and I'm hoping to make it into the "Police Beat" of the Daily Universe. All and all another action packed evening on the streets of Provo~~

On Friday night the girls team had a "Celeb Party" and so the Men's Team had a HALO Party. We had three tv's (kinda hard to see in the photo, but there are three!) and a bunch of fun. Unfortunately for the girls some jerks decided to throw water balloons at them. What a shame!

Well on Thursday night we swam the U of U. I probably shouldn't say anything else, but that I totally agree with what Max Hall said, and the U proved it on Thursday. I got 5 stitches in my right hand because I took my frustration out on a soap dispenser in the showers. If you're dying for deets (Zach), give me a call or message me and I'll fill you in.

Tonight was an eventful night in wonderful Utah. Luckily I had an excuse to get out of Provo and go to the big city, SLC! To celebrate Michelle's birthday, we all went to the Jazz-Nuggets game. Now, don't get me wrong, I hate the nuggets, but I also despise the Jazz. It was a tough call as to who I was going to root for. However, in the end I decided to go in favor of the birthday girl's team, and cheer for the nuggets (however I still wore my Mavericks shirt to the game!). Jazz fans are about as classless as UofU fans. We sat behind a family of two parents, 3 young children and an infant. As we all took our seats the mom turned to us and yelled "Denver Sucks". Then throughout the entire game she proceeded to yell, accompanied by her eldest son of probably 10 years. They seriously reminded me of an exorcism movie, completely possessed and yelling bloody murder. She was actually more entertaining than the game, as denver was about 10 points behind the entire game. Still tons of fun. Tomorrow, while wearing my Cowboys shirt, I'll be cheering for the Colts because Austin Collie is my homeboy.

Today I had a run-in with the BYU Campus Police. It was a most enjoyable experience as always. My offense: crossing the street when the cross walk flashed the stop hand signal. I know, its an absolutely heinous crime and I should have been punished severely. Luckily I was with a dumb ass friend who tried to run and then completely mocked the officer to his face. The officer let me go so he could deal with my friend. Just a side note, my friend got away with a written warning. That's right, he actually got a written warning for crossing the street. And university police wonder why nobody respects them. It was such a fun experience that I am going to try and find another opportunity to provide something for university police to do. Maybe next time I'll ride my bike on the sidewalk or do something even crazier, like throw a snowball at someone. I should be locked up for just thinking about it!
