Truck Sprint-Push


Rowing Remembrances from NavyLights Yore
(♫ in the key of crazy eights ♫)

Remember the truck sprint-push…?
…Remember the haze gray shell carrier truck?
  [Does anyone remember the make, model, and year of that modified stake bed truck?] Anyway, remember when we’d divide into port and starboard and one side would all get onto the bed of the truck with Coach at the wheel while the other side pushed the truck at as best a sprint possible starting at Hubbard and "sprinting" up to Gate 8, making a hard left on to Wainwright Road, continuing past Halligan Hall and around the baseball field, and then returning to Hubbard? After that lap the sides would switch and we’d “do ‘er agin!” – switching from starboard to port and back till Coach got tired, o’ course.

Aye! We was hard, we was, in them days…!
