Is that an oar in your pocket or are you just happy to medal?8/7/2012
Look at the U.S. men's rowing team, standing at attention on that platform as they receive their bronze medals in the Men's Four. Our men hadn't medaled in this event in 20 years, so you can't blame them for being a little stiff, especially 24-year-old Henrik Rummel (third from right) who is practically bursting with patriotism. The physical exertion of rowing all-out for just over six minutes can be hard on an athlete, but Rummel's swelling pride is visible.
"I swear it's not erect," Rummel posted on Reddit. "I don't know why it ended up in that position." Wait...you thought we were talking about THAT?! Oh, Henrik, you've made us blush.
Do you think Rummel would prefer looser trunks?
