Finally, some recognition.

This is a public service announcement.




According to NPR, Marist College crew members were out practicing on the Hudson River this week when they were surprised by a gigantic head floating toward them.
Made out of styrofoam and fiberglass, the Poughkeepsie Journal says it's about seven feet tall, is missing its nose and has the appearance of Greek or Roman architecture. Marist College spokesman Greg Cannon told the paper the huge item was lifted out of the water on Monday, directly across from the school. It remains unclaimed.


This has caused quite a stir at US rowing, where administrators were quietly optimistic.  "It isn't every day a crew event can be considered exciting and newsworthy.  Most times when you tell people that you compete in "Crew" they ask if that is like being on "A Family Feud."  Now we have NPR talking about us, it will only be a matter of time before we are on "All Things Considered" which so far has given the sport of Crew any consideration at all, 
I can't wait. 
If you would like to claim the "big, giant head" please bring your ID, proof of ownership and several reporters and hours of undivided media attention to the next Marist College Crew event.
