    Can't wait to see the new stadium. It will be a wonderful upgrade and will solidify Eugene's status as TrackTown USA.

    This will be the first year since 2011 I won't be attending a meet at Hayward, and it's a bummer. But thinking about Hayward and the new thing that is to be built....one of the really fun things about Hayward that I'm not sure has been discussed here is how easy it is for the fans to interact with the athletes, mostly on their victory laps. It was pretty cool for my kids get autographs and/or photos taken with Eaton, Gatlin, Bromell, Farah, and others. I wonder if the same sort of setup will be present, along the back straight and home straight? It's so inherent in T&F there that I have to think it's been talked about behind those closed doors.

    Conor, I'll save you the effort on this one: "No, they will probably put a moat with alligators and piranhas between the stands and the track."

    :-)

    You read my mind....too bad you won't be there....kuha and I will drink a pint in your honor.

    Meanwhile someone I know sent this...

    however, I recently learned that a good friend (Todd Van Horne) was one of the principle designers ...Not sure of his role in it (he's who designed all the interior of the Marcus Mariotta Building and the base that holds the Heisman. He also did a lot of the interior design work for Matt Arena, and used to be the chief designer for all of the football uniforms. He's Phil's other 'go-to' design guy after Tinker....and perhaps, the nicest guy in the world. Brilliant. and humble (and a fabulous father and husband....)

    My son's HS graduation is Friday evening. Even he asked, a while back, "Can we just skip graduation and go to Pre??"

    Say hi to kuha. I've taken in the Friday session with him a couple of times.

    I figured out why Conor is so bent out of shape over this. He's a closet White Sox fan!

    Reflecting on my first visit to Hayward (worth the trip!), and the slightly obtrusive, but charming, green pillars reminded me a bit of Old Comiskey. Of course, that's now a parking lot...
