Government employees’ crew team

It was Head of the Charles this weekend in Boston. Here was a conversation on the Weeks Footbridge:

  • “Did you hear that one of the teams in the Eights is all government workers?”
  • “No. How are they doing?”
  • “Much better this year. They kept coming in last in previous races, so they sent someone to spy on the Harvard and Yale teams to try to find out the secret of their high performance.”
  • “What did the spy tell them?”
  • “At Harvard and Yale they have only one person yelling ‘The rest of you should row’.”
