Sport in which 1-8 people row a racing shell down a river 1500-2000 meters. Usually takes around 6 minutes to finish. Practice is run by a coach and his ever faithful coxwain. There are 2 types of shells, scullers, in which every rower has 2 oars, and standard, when each rower has 1 oar, port or starbord. During the offseason rowers practice on ergs. Rowers are also known to train as hard as some of the most physical sports there are. A common misconseption is that rowers arms are really strong, little do the public know, that rowers use mainly there legs.
Shit man crew is the greatest sport ever. Damn this sport gave me a sexy body.

the official sport of rejects. "crew teams" are generally made up of kids who have failed at all or most other sports. even track.
COOL KID: hey did you make the football, lacrosse, basketball, or hockey team?

CREWER: no i'm doing crew. it's way harder and more difficult than any of those so thats why i'm doing it.

COOL KID: no you just couldn't make any of those teams

CREWER: i weigh 100 pounds and am in terrific shape.

Crew is the sport of rowing a boat as fast as you can to a finishing point before another team reaches there. In the city of Malden in Massachusetts, this sport is also known as Fat Emo Kids in a Boat.
Person 1: Have you heard about the Crew team's loss yesterday?
Person 2: You mean the Fat Emo Kids in a Boat?
Person 1: Yeah.
Person 2: Yeah, I watched them lose. They didn't have enough energy to row down the river to the finish line.

This is a sport that requires substantial physical condition. Many who participate in it think that that have accomplished some godly task. Some feel as if the sport is far superior to any other sport such as football. This results in an undeserved sense of accomplishment and superiority to so called "regular sport athletes". In reality a crew team is made up mostly of athletes who have failed in all other sports or been rejected due to lack of skill. This may contribute to the attitude that rowers have towards other sport athletes.
crew captain: If you were to put eight football players in a boat and have them row against our crew team, they would not stand a chance at winning.

football captain: If you were to put 11 of your crew members on a football field against us they would most likely be severely injured and possibly killed.

The ancient sport of walking backwards as a group. Performed by up to eight people who lack the mental capacity to try and walk forwards for a change.
How can those crew people see where they're going?

1. Group of friends, Gang, posse, team, set.
2. A shitty American sport only participated in by pretensious wankers.
These people's body and sleep patterns are not so fucked up from drugs that they can wake and train at 5am. Fuck man! that's before I go to sleep!
1. "Yo yo yo, who wants it? I'll take you and your muh-fuckin crew."
2. "Sorry, I can't get fucked up, I have to get up for crew."

A sport for fags. A sport in which the players cannot play any other sport that reqiures talent
"Hey Ian do you want to go play football?"
"No, I suck at ever sport, besides rowing and I'm on a Crew team."
"Dude, that's not a sport."
"Oh, yeah you are right. I guess I'm just not talented at anything."
"Yes, you are correct."
