I just noticed that the 1-man/woman rowing competitions in the 2008 Beijing Olympics is called 'The skulls"......

The skulls

A major Hollywood feature a while back about Skulls & Bones secret society at Yale, where coincidently rowing was frequently featured, a sport for the upper class if you will.


edit for spelling!

Strikes me that you're really digging for a tie-in.

It's Scull - defined as a one, two or four person lightweight oar driven boat.
Oars called sculls in this case....

Actually, the bit I find interesting is that the scull has its origin in China. I always think of sculling as an Ivy-league sport, but the rotating oar method apparently dates back to the Han Dynasty.
