Rowing Pairs Disappoint

Olympic rowing duo Zac Purchase and Mark Hunter of Great Britain won gold in the men's lightweight double scull today.

That's all well and good, but couldn't they have worked harder to come up with a more memorable name pairing -- like the U.S. rowing team of [Calvin] Coffey and [Michael] Staines, who took the silver in the 1976 Olympics in Montreal?

If only Purchase could have ditched Hunter for a guy named "Sayle."

I suppose Purchase could have stepped aside in favor of a rower named "Bargain." Or even "Gatherer," if he'd have been willing to sit in the back of the boat.

Comments:
I have no witty riposte to your amusing post, yet I want to let you know that I read it and enjoyed it and I encourage you to post more often, if at all possible.

I *do*, however, have a good verifictionary entry with this comment:

qfltbhsh (kyu-flat-bush) - The line of tourists to Manhattan waiting for something that natives would disdain.
