As some of you may know, one of the biggest crew regattas in the world, the Head of the Charles, is going to be taking place this weekend in Boston– on, you guessed it, the Charles River. High school students, college athletes, and beyond travel from around the world to come and row. Holy Cross will be racing there– so if you live around Boston, go cheer for ‘Sader Nation.
I’ll be there in the afternoon on Saturday cheering for the HC team and for MIT, because I’m going to watch my boyfriend row and then stay the weekend in Boston, then head back to school on Sunday on the commuter rail. I’ve got to say, the train is so easy, and the old Boston trains remind me of the vintage Metro North trains that used to take me into NYC before they got switched out.
So, dear readers, the real dilemma here lies in how much purple I can wear and get away with as I stand with the MIT parents. Do you think they’ll throw me into the river if I cheer too loudly? It’d be so cold. Brrrrrr.
Here’s hoping that HC Rowing will blow everyone out of the water, and I don’t turn into a human popsicle.
