Mike Teti looked like a farmer surveying his crop as he slowly steered the launch up and down Princeton's Lake Carnegie. The U.S. Olympic men's rowing team had been announced about three weeks earlier (July 7), and this workout was a light one. Teti, the coach, chatted with visitors more than he cheered or chastised his rowers. But the Upper Darby native and 1974 Monsignor Bonner graduate was aware of every oar pull, every shake of the shell. Now 47 and the veteran of four Olympics - three as a rower - Teti has been highly successful as a coach.

They're called "Grandpa" and "Baby. " Not clever nicknames, but appropriate. It so happens that the oldest rower on the United States men's Olympic crew team and the youngest are both in the same boat, the eight, and they're both from the same place, the Philadelphia area. "Grandpa" is Mike Teti, 35, from Upper Darby, on his third Olympic team and eight years older than anyone else in his boat. "Baby" is Mike Moore, 21, the coxswain of the eight and a dean's-list student at Temple, who has postponed his senior year so he could move to Princeton and train year-round under U.S. sweep coach Kris Korzeniowski.

It was the longest five minutes of Mike Teti's life. He watched, and waited, as the United States tried to win the most coveted prize of all, the men's eight at the 51-nation FISA World Rowing Championships. The team that Teti, a Monsignor Bonner graduate, had coached was dead even with the pack before using the power Teti knew would be invaluable to pull away at the end and win the gold medal in the 2,000-meter race in Aiguebelette, France, on Sept. 7. The victory in 5 minutes, 27.20 seconds, a scant 0.56 ahead of the Romanian team, was one of two won by a Teti-coached American boat.

LONDON - After a year of rowing uphill, it was no surprise Mike Teti's crew of eight found itself in last place among six boats in the Olympic gold-medal race. They had been playing catch-up all along - failing to qualify for the Games until the last possible race, assembling a brand-new boat from a cattle call of athletes - so this was a familiar feeling. "Not a great start," said Teti, the rowing legend from Upper Darby, Monsignor Bonner High, and Temple University. "They were out of the race, and then they got back in it. " His handpicked rowers handled it the way they handle everything - by rowing harder.

ETON, England - Zach Vlahos screamed his bloomin' lungs off. That's the coxswain's job. And the louder he screamed, the faster the U.S. men's eight-oared crew sped down the stretch of its Olympic final Wednesday at the 2,000-meter Eton-Dorney Olympic rowing venue, a magnificent facility created alongside the Thames. "We're moving, we're moving," he barked. "We're gaining, we're gaining. " In front of more than 30,000 witnesses, they moved impressively. They gained incredibly.

ETON, England - U.S. Olympic rowing coach Mike Teti terms his men's eight-oar team "seven engineers and Giuseppe. " It's a very good call - all but No. 5 oar Giuseppe Lanzone have studied engineering at one time or another. So, when something needs fixing - as it often does in this sport - Teti knows that "these guys can figure it out. " They've figured out a lot of things in the last three months - rallying from the brink of elimination from the Games in May all the way to a place in the Olympic final, a crack at the medals, and a date with destiny on Wednesday.

Dozens of people turned out for an opening-ceremony viewing party Friday evening at the 401 Diner, a gathering place for elite rowers and the community that supports them. At another viewing party, this one in East Mount Airy, more than 150 people gathered at Lovett Park to watch the opening ceremonies on a 12-feet-wide inflatable screen.

Rowing lifers call it "breaking the oar," as in pulling so hard that you're trying to snap the oar in two. That's what Mike Teti was doing that day long ago, in the 7-seat for Monsignor Bonner High. It didn't matter to him that Bonner's 5-seat had gotten his own oar stuck in the water and had just completely ejected himself from the boat, stopping the shell. As the 5-seat floated by on the Schuylkill, Teti wasn't thinking rescue, just win, yelling for the stroke to increase the stroke rate, with 900 meters left and Father Judge pulling ahead.

Stan Bergman sat inside Lloyd Hall on Boathouse Row and was flush with embarrassment as one speaker after another, including rowing coaches of national renown such as Mike Teti and Ted Nash, paid him tribute at his retirement ceremony late last month. Finally, it came Bergman's time to speak. Typical of someone who abhorred attention during his accomplished 22-year career as Penn's heavyweight rowing coach, the 65-year-old native of Ventnor, N.J., figured it was getting late and everyone was probably tired of hearing about him. "So I made it short and sweet," Bergman said.

Once the rowing grind for her senior season started, Princeton's Devan Darby would reinforce the task at hand by looking at a note on her wall the moment she awakened. It read: "NCAA Champions. " Nowhere on the note did Darby write that she would ultimately end up part of a Princeton crew that would be considered among the best eights in women's collegiate history. "We thought of just about every scenario for this race, and this was a good one," Darby, a cocaptain rowing in the fifth seat, said after Princeton's top-ranked eight completed a perfect season by blowing away the field yesterday at the NCAA women's rowing championships on Mercer Lake.
