Lets start with a quick book review. I read The Boys in the Boat earlier this summer and thought it was one of the best books I’ve ever read. I’m sure I particularly enjoyed it because I rowed crew, but my dad, who did not row, recommended it to me and it was on the best sellers list. I definitely can see how anyone could appreciate the story of some average Americans coming together to achieve something spectacular. Its a great book for anyone to read at anytime, but with the Olympics in Rio on the horizon, what better time than now? PBS is doing a special on the story of the Olympic crew from 1936, which aires Tuesday August 2nd at 9pm. If you’ve never followed US rowing, the book and PBS special might just peak your interest. I watched some of the Royal Henley this year, and the use of drones to film rowing has really changed the game for spectators. Now is a great time to read the book, watch the PBS special, and enjoy US Olympic rowing.
