Countdown to Football Frustration

Next Frustrating Hoops Victory

Next Lacrosse Annihilation

FootBlogPoll: Week Thirteen

This weekend I went to the Harvard-Yale football fiasco at the Yale Bowl.

Or at least that's what I'm told.

If you've never been to a Harvard-Yale game, it is essentially the world's privileged and elite rewriting the rules of acceptable social behavior. It's an eclectic mix of binge drinking, stumbling from dizzying heights, binge drinking, bands in crappy blazers, and binge drinking.

Basically, the perfect setting for hilarity to ensue.

If you're interested in reading some accounts of The Game (and all the bullshit that preceeded its playing this year), Google News may be for you.

As it turns out, Yale ended up grabbing defeat from the jaws of victory this year by allowing the Crimson to crawl back from the brink of annihilation to win 30-24 in three overtimes. This victory marked Harvard's fifth consecutive victory over Yale in The Game. I, of course, managed to watch none of this comeback as I confidently left the 'Bowl in the third quarter assured of a Yale victory considering they were up 21-3.

Instead of watching the Elis pile it on, I thought it'd be more fun to watch Syracuse get its ass beat by Notre Dame.

So, for the record, that's:
Stupid Decision by Glaude: 2
Not Being a Retard: 0

[Notes About This Week's Ballot]
1. How high can you really put a three loss Georgia Tech team?
2. How far to drop a schizophrenic Miami squad?
3. I feel good about moving Fresno State up after the Playstation game they had with Southern California this weekend.
