    Well, unfortunately, yeah :rolleyes: They have a good rep for Medicine, but the college itself isn't so well liked. Their men were Head of the River today; but almost no-one cheered as they went past, and we did for everyone else (except John's, of course )

    I cheered a bit for 1st & 3rd because my friend's brother was in it. Not quite as much as we did for Clare though

    Not as a college. And not in rowing especially apparently. I have some nice friends there though.

    Joey - that's probably exactly why people don't like them. That and they're closing Gardies. Btw - Clare women bumped LMBC

    That means nothing to me. I dont even know what bumped means. I presume its about rowing, so I wouldnt be bothered either way, people can have their crap minor sport

    The fact that it is a minor sport makes it crap in my eyes. Its only good when there is major stakes on the line like the Olympics, then its interesting. Although no doubt the BBC would miss up the opportunity to show their 'world cup' because it will be so cheap to buy the rights for, and fit in with the BBC's other **** scheduling.

    Take a guess at what "bumped" means. Basically we beat them.

    And rowing here is neither crap nor minor. I'm not a boatie, but even I'll say that - I had a really good time today.

    In Cambridge perhaps, but its too simple a sport for me.

    Whatever LMBC mens mean I have no Idea. Similary I would love for them to come up to Lancashire and get laughed at

    Hmm, Brain Potter tells the truth though

    Rowing is for boaties.
    Rugby is for rugger buggers.
    I'm a boatie.
    You're a rugger bugger.
    Let's just put our differences aside and get on with life.

    However, I'm going to watch the women's rugby varsity match next week. A total of SEVEN Hilda's girls are on the blues' squad!!! Pretty impressive...

    Stonyhurst have a rowing team. ALthough they did, no one wanted to do it, there is a boat some where though. I'd probably make a very good rower but i'll just leave it at that.

    Why bumped for getting beat? Its not like there is any contact between boats, it confuses me.

    Lol, bumps racing is quite confusing I guess. Sometimes there is contact between the boats, and coxes and bows sometimes get taken out in the lower divisions here lol!!!! Can get quite violent. Torpids is starting this week, so I'm sure there will be plenty of hospital trips. Basically in bumps races all the crews are in divisions and line up along the river. The aim is to move up to the head of the river by 'bumping' the crew in front of you. In some races (eg. Summmer Eights) if you get bumped, you're out, in others not. If you do particularly well you move up a division. Sometimes the criteria for being 'bumped' changes, but it's usually when another crew makes contact with either the boat, blades, or a crew member (!!!!), rows clean past you, or the cox of the boat about to be bumped raises their arm to indicate that a bump is about to happen in order to save his/her skin.
