Stroke, stroke

Ha, made you look - dirty minds!

MAAC championships yesterday. Spawn rowed in a pair, a four and an eight - that's three races, each one is 2,000 meters. That's a lot of rowing. He was one tired young man at the end of the day. As were the other guys in the four who also rowed in three races.

The weather held out and many parents came to cheer on the team. Go Stags!





PS: His best finish of the day was third in the four. His foot lock broke in the pair - the same thing happened to his partner three weeks ago - piece of crap boat! Not a good finish on that one or the eight. He and his rowing partner have finally been given a newer boat to use - politics in rowing too! Overall, the men's team finished fourth.

It was at Mercer Lake near Trenton. It's a man made lake that was created when they needed dirt to build I295. The county created a beautiful park around the lake which is where the US Olympic rowing team trains.

That is so cool. I watch some crew teams on the Elizabeth River almost every day. It is such a beautiful sport to watch really...all the syncronicity. I am really impressed.
