Harvard Beats Yale 29-29, a.k.a. "Women were much more amenable to the direct approach"

A few points on NCAA football, prompted by the shoddily edited but nonetheless compelling documentary on The Game, 1968, C.E.:

1. Let us hope that the tarnished art of sportscasting eventually recovers from the age of John Madden

2. Yaleishness: e'er resistant to evolution

3. "I love throwing things.  I love the aesthetics of throwing something and watching it fly."

4. RichRod and les Wolvs of 2009 may have to pull a comparable miracle to endear them to their notoriously skeptical fans.  Until then, Michigandism remains the faith of the blindly pious and the quietly masochistic.
