"I can't, I have crew"
"A rower does more before dawn then most do all day"
"Rowing only looks easy"
"No one knows what pain is, unless they have sprinted that last 500 meters"
"Fuck, we have 2k's today"
"Real athletes row. Others just play games."
"Haha, you play soccer and baseball? Pussy, I do Crew"
For Crew, I had to run 500 miles, now I must row 500 more.
IF CREW WAS EASY IT'D BE CALLED FOOTBALL.
Crew is like crack. It interferes with your sleep. It destroys your body. It introduces you to totally weird people. It's expensive. It takes you away from the real world and into a fantasy land. You start doing it way too much, as you build up a tolerance. You can't stop. You love it, but you know that you shouldn't. You stick with it, because you have this bizzare idea that life would just not be the same without it.
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
When Sally rows she gets the worst blisters, skin is literally ripped from her hands leaving painful, bleeding open wounds.
Kim rowed 25,000 meters yesterday on an erg. Today she can not walk because her legs, back, and arms are so sore.
Phil lost his voice when his cox box broke and he had to scream calls for the teams entire 3 hour on-the-water practice.
Kevin rowed so hard was over exerted and threw up at the end of the race.
That crew team is more like a family, i wish our soccer team cared about each other and loved their sport as much as those good looking crew kids do. I also wish i had sexy muscular legs and crazy good endurance like them.
