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. If you get bumped, you're out. If you do particularly well you move up a division. Sometimes the criteria for being 'bumped' changes, but it's usually when another crew pulls up half a length alongside you.
The logic to that is beyond me. I'll stick to breaking peoples collar bones man to man

Why bumped for getting beat? Its not like there is any contact between boats, it confuses me.
Because there is contact between them - a bump is when your boat/blade/bowman touches the boat/blade/cox in front. Someone got a blade in the head today - not nice, though I didn't see it.

Whatever LMBC mens mean I have no Idea.
It's the John's boat club. Stands for Lady Margaret Boat Club.

Who the hell is Brian Potter?

And you wouldn't make a very good rower if you spent the whole time, as you do here, mouthing off about how lame it is.

Nope, never seen it. I don't have a TV here. Is it something I really should be watching?
