Time-lapsed Blogography Day: Twenty Years Ago

Twenty years ago today, on March 30, 1996, I woke up at 5 AM and drove down to the TC Williams boathouse in Alexandria for a "friendly, not friendly" race against Robinson HS. The lightweight boys boat raced first as I coxed them through heavy fog to row 1500m in 5:00.5, with the Robinson lightweight boys straggling in 19.26 seconds later. Even though only two schools were involved, Robinson didn't win a single race that day, and probably went home to sell their rowing gear on that new Internet site, eBAY.

After briefly celebrating the shut-out, we went back out on the water for another unnecessary hour of practice, because that's how overzealous TC was about Crew back then. I finally got home around lunchtime and spent the afternoon writing up study guides for my prospective marching band drum majors to learn from.

In the evening, I went with Jack, Dutton, and Mike Schoen to the Kurt Russell movie, Executive Decision, which I reviewed succinctly with one sentence: "It was pretty suspenseful."
