    If you happen to be in Boston this weekend and you like rowing, check out the regatta. My daughter will be competing for Georgia State. If you're like me and not in Boston... well, they will have a live webcast!!

    But I think that's Arthur Fedler's head,
    not Charles River's.

    Chuck's may not not have been memorialized.

    BUT there is a river named after ... uh... him.

    Right. "Head of the Charles River" 

    nevermind.

    The announcer has a very British accent... at least it sounds British to me... so proper!!
