Crew

SO happy were Columbia’s eight,
As near the goal they drew,
Each struggling hero all elate,
The cock-swain almost crew.
Edward Augustus Blount, Jr., "A Crew Poem"

A beautiful display of young British manhood in full flower!

Reassuring, actually.

Good to know they're not all long-haired latte leftists sitting on the ground in a haze of pot smoke making limp-wristed accusatory gestures as Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher burning in effigy.

Row, row, row your boat
Swiftly down the stream.
Manfully, manfully, manfully, manfully
To fulfill your dream.
