I went for a quick swim on Thursday and ended up getting to the pool when the Plano West high school swim team was doing their last workout before their afternoon meet.  Despite having 6+ people per lane, they were nice enough to leave two public swim lanes open.  My lane only had one other swimmer and so we split the lane in half, but I felt like the gym was full of cheering fans as the team cheered each other on at the end of the swim.  Before today I always thought of swimming as a quiet sport, what with the whole head underwater thing, but who knew?
