Rowing

Postby Adam Preston » Sun Jul 24, 2011 5:37 pm UTC

I have heard that rowing is the most exhilarating sport,I personally would love to join a team but there seems to be none at all in my county. What do you guys think on the sport of rowing?

THE MOST EXHILARATING SPORT
... with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandalled feet.

getting hit in the face hurts so rowing might be a better idea ;)

Have you ever seen the hands of people who row competitively? I'm pretty sure rowing hurts too. ;)

There's always the possibility of being hit in the face with your oar, too...

Still having painfull hands is better then having a headache after a bad defence during training right?
