To start, I'd like to vocalize my thanks to my fellow 'Pounders, especially Cassino, for shouldering the load around here while I and a few of my cohorts have been kept from dedicating as much time to blog business as we'd like.

Thanks to everyone for bearing with us. To the Dots!

- I'm beginning to think that the men's crew team is incapable of losing. Seriously, this level of success is borderline unprecedented. The gravy train has to end at some point, doesn't it?
