I love it! I was on the rowing team in college. It is one of the great sports there is, and magnificent to observe.

J. Phil: living in New England affords so many great opportunites that we in Oklahoma are just now enjoying. Rowing in college must've been a great sport to be involved in!

Frances: We have revitalized our river area and are now enjoying the fruits of our tax dollars! Thanks for commenting. :D
