Around the Ivies
Harvard cheerleaders, I wrote you a song:
You better work out,
Let’s pretend that last Saturday afternoon at around 3:30 pm, I was hanging out with That’s So Raven, who told me that one of the following two situations was going to occur.
A) Drew Faust announces she is resigning her presidency, and after leaving their respective spouses, she and Larry Summers elope in Swaziland, where they plan to spend the rest of their lives living among native tribes. The happy couple are taking their wedding vows when all of a sudden the Winkelvoss twins appear and declare that Summers had stolen what was originally their idea to elope in Swaziland with Faust.
We have hit the midway point of the 2012 Ivy football season, so let’s break down each team’s first five games by comparing them to other classic “middles.”
Harvard (5-0, 2-0 Ivy) is the “The Godfather: Part II.” Still debatable whether the middle edition of the trilogy is as good as the previous version, but it’s an all-time great nonetheless.
Oh God, it’s happening again.
If you’re reading this, you know what occurred last weekend. For the third time in two years, Harvard suffered a gut-wrenching one-point loss to an Ivy rival that put its ability to return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1946 in jeopardy.
There are just two weeks left in the Ivy basketball season.
Harvard can clinch at least a share of the Ancient Eight title by sweeping the Killer P’s this weekend at Lavietes Pavilion, where it hasn’t lost in 27 consecutive games—the second-longest current streak in the country.
