This photo is so compelling that I had to post this article about the St. Saviour at St. Francis College Swim Meet as an excuse.

Perhaps I should be talking about Ryan Lochte, Matt Grevers or Mary DeScenza but there is something so "carpe diem" about the photo above that I just had to post it and talk about it.

Here you have these young, beautiful, women wearing traditional swimsuits strolling along the edge of a very "retro" indoor pool with absolutely no worries or concerns about deadlines, mortgage payments, or that "depression thingy" on CNBC.

"... Seize the day and place no trust in tomorrow. ..." That's the attitude I see in the photo above and I think it would make a great Norman Rockwell painting.

Note how the yardage markers along the side of the pool are painstakingly illustrated with 2-inch, square, black tiles. They don't make pools like this anymore; not even in Beijing!

Oh, From the New York Daily News: "...

When the Molloy Stanners girls swim team entered the St. Francis College Aquatic Center on Sunday, they did so as one of the top teams in the CHSAA Brooklyn/Queens 'A' division.

But the Stanners still used their final regular-season dual meet against St. Saviour as an opportunity to make a statement to the rest of the CHSAA, rolling to a 91-71 victory in Brooklyn. ..."
