A sport that causes friends, who do not row, of the athletes who participate in crew to want to slap the rower's face for complaining about how hard crew is than when they suggest they quit, just stare blankly back as if they are thinking, but thats not even a possibility.
This sport sucks, but will get you a great body, some great friends, into a good college, but otherwise it ruins your life.
Sport that elicits excessive muffin, bagel, and pasta consumption.
Rowers are hungry ALL THE TIME!!!
Rowers know --to erg= to kill yourself repeatedly
Non-rowing friend of rower: If you hate it s much, why don't you quit?
Rower: **Blank stare**
"muffin muffin muffin"
I just erged a 2K and i PR'd but it feels like my throat is bleeding
Kali: Going to texas with Crew. . .growl.
Contrary to popular belief, Rowing is not just for the preppy kids. The majority, sadly enough, of crews is made up of preppy kids because of the immense costs of boats and equipment. a single oar costs approximately $250 USD. Boats range in price from $2,500USD. to $250,000+USD.
In the winter and off season, rowers use an erg (see mideval torture machine)for training. A college rower is known to exert his- or herself so far as to vomit while still erging, or even find him-/herself unable to stand.
Ironically, Crew is the only sport derived from a form of capital punishment. (see vikings)
Rower :Hard. but I'll ignore that comment if you spell Football.
Football player: P-i-g-s-k-i-n
Rower: good boy. *is carried off by a group of ladies.
Student: You're the guy who yells stroke, right?
Cox'n : I yell -At- stroke -seat-.. but no. "stroke" is not a normal call
(Slogan of a local crew team that can only safely hold practices in the morning)
We do more before dawn than you do all day.
