Crew. Rowing. Erging. Split. Rating. Slide. Riggers. Coxswain. Way 'nuff
Recognize these terms? If you do, you are probally a rower, like me. While its not totally unheard of, crew usually takes some explaining to people that it isn't just chillin' in a boat with some oars, that it is a disicplined sport combining teamwork and strenth.
I've tried to find something that invovles crew on Nerdfighteria and I couldn't, so I thought I'd start something. It's a great, if slightly uncommon, sport!
So, if you do row, please leave a comment about stories or your team or just saying you do it.
If you don't row, you might want to visit
just to see what crew looks like it. wikipedia it to find more if you are really interested or just leave a comment.
Fight world suck. Increase awesome. Be a Nerdfighter
My school has a varsity team and is part of a league. They're not just a club. Some of the rowers are even on year-round teams and are always training on ergs and stuff. It's really freakin competitive. But they've gone to nationals and come in at top spots in the past few years, so it seems to be worth it for them.
It's the only time I've ever heard of a team practicing before school lol.
