Brothers Extra Strong

The plane was two hours late, but my men from University of Toronto waited patiently to have a drink with me at the Madison Pub in downtown Toronto. As scantily clothed college girls roamed around on a warm Canadian night, our lovely conversations just flowed with my former UofT varsity rowing champions. I have had the pleasure of racing in eight oar shells at the Canadian and American championships with these fine lads. Looks like we are getting an alumni eight together for the Head of the Trent regatta, and the Head of the Charles in Boston. Good times ahead.

On Sacred Ground

Another successful CSSRA Championships for Ridley rowers. Nine boats raced in finals, Tiger oarsmen and oarswomen hauled in six medals–two gold, three silver, and one bronze. My former lightweight men's eight captured silver, with two crewmates getting a full rowing scholarship to attend Yale in the upcoming year. Congratulations to all Ridley rowers. Program has deep roots and shall continue to mint rowing champions in the years ahead.

Old Ridlieans On Campus

Some would say we should be gated for looking so good. We are feeling good as well. Completely restoring to be back at my old school with my dearest friend Doug Martin, also an old Princetonian. Like many–old boys–I can't wait to send my new boy here.
