What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
I guess you could call rowing a sport, but let’s be honest…it isn’t much of one. Not to mention, we pretty much know rowers are douchebags. So, when a bunch of rowers from Washington University in St. Louis got attacked by a school of Asian Carp, there was really no way we weren’t going to mention that.
What seemed to be a typical practice on Missouri’s Creve Coeur Lake suddenly became something out of a Benny Hill skit. Once the team’s boat got near the dock, it was bombarded by hundreds of the flying fish.
Too bad they don’t have flying sharks in Missouri.
… or Harvard.
Although I’m not too sure what kind of mutated carp would be hopping out of the Charles River. Love that dirty water.
I say we take this incident as a way to improve the sport. Give each rower a firearm and assign them points for how many flying fish they blast out of the sky.
Gotta think outside the box sometimes, Dub.
Another possible combination of Olympic events. Archery and rowing. Or skeet shooting…take your pick.
