With Spiritual Overtones

B. G Kelley is a writer in the Philadelphia area. His father rowed on the Schuylkill River in the 1930s and 1940s with that other Kelly – Jack Kelly, the three-time Olympic gold medallist. B. G. Kelley had an essay published the other day in the National Catholic Reporter,  “Rowing is a network of spiritual kinship”. Kelley takes a different look at rowing, or as he writes, ‘I’m searching beyond the physical dimensions of the sport, to understand more about its spiritual components, because, in my way of thinking, rowing is imbued with definite spiritual overtones.’
