"It's all about swinging together guys, pass that rhythm back," says Olympic rower Sam Stitt into his megaphone as he puts Georgetown's varsity lightweight crew through a late fall workout. "Real clean here, let's make this work."
About 10 years ago, two pancake breakfasts at Metro 29 Diner — a teal, glass and aluminum comfort-food haven in Arlington — would have set you back about $15. Double that if you're feeding a couple of towering 200-pounders who have just spent the morning rowing from the Key Bridge to Mount Vernon on the Potomac.
The Georgetown lightweight teams have had three coaches in the past year, and Stitt said he hopes to bring some stability, even though he's still learning how to mix his personality — what Anderson called "a goofy guy with a pretty big spirit for adventure" — with that of a coach.
"That kind of highlights the difference between us," he said from Seattle.
