THE GAME HAD TRAGEDY
On Friday, my good friend lost his father. From all of us here in The Cheap Seats,we send our condolences to you and your whole entire family. Irving will be waiting for him to show him the ropes and give him advice on which barber chair not to sit in. Maybe they can have a conversation on whether the Dodgers were better off in Brooklyn or in Los Angeles.
Yesterday, at The Game, tragedy struck in the parking lot. Before the Yale-Harvard, a U-Haul truck carrying kegs of beer swerved out of control in the grassy parking lot outside of the Yale Bowl. The U-Haul struck three people. One of these victims was fatally injured. Our condolences go out to the family and friends of this person.
Inside the Yale Bowl, Harvard dominated Yale 45-7. Harvard has wrapped up the 2011 Ivy League Conference Title. Harvard put on an offensive clinic including a fake field goal, that could only be used for The Game.
This is a classic rivalry. The Game is always scheduled for the final game of the season and it is the most important game for these two teams. Winning of The Game is more important than their overall record.
In other Ivy League action, the Columbia Lions finally won a game. Hopefully this made their band happy.
And tonight the BC Lions take on the Edmonton Eskimos for a berth in the 2011 Grey Cup.
