Halloween Costumes and Rowing: Mike Gennaro Showing Us How it's Done

While we're anticipating another good weekend of racing, with data from the Head Of The Charles, the Head of the Schuylkill, and the Princeton Chase already available for rowing hot stove discussions, it's nearly time to get serious again. But before we do that, we'd be remiss if we didn't celebrate some of the best rowing Halloween costumes of the 2013 season. And, never short on banter, Mike Gennaro and his fellow teammates on the U.S. squad brought their A-game to Lake Carnegie this morning.

While Gennaro may be the first-ever hot dog to do pieces in a pair, Grant James was keeping things in order in the bow, though the rowing was a bit, robotic (sorry).

Not to be outdone, Grant's brother Ross was busy holding it down as Clint Eastwood, with a cigar clenched between his teeth throughout the training session. (Apparently, it originally included a hat, vest, and poncho, but then that's the trouble with outdoor sports.)

Suffice it to say, things got a bit interesting out there.

All credit to row2k's Eric Dresser for a great set of photos—certainly made our day!

What they said.
