Celebrity Predictions

By Maureen B. Shannon, Crimson Staff Writer

President Lawrence H. Summers

“Rick Levin spoke so graciously at my inauguration that I wouldn’t dream of predicting the obvious—except to say that New Haven is my hometown, and I intend to be fiercely disloyal to the home team.”

Professor Robert Coles, Graduate School of Education and Medical School

General Education 105: Literature of Social Reflection

“Harvard will win by two touchdowns, because they are better, naturally.”

Professor Harvey Mansfield, William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Government

Government 1060: The History of Ancient and Medieval Political Philosophy

“Harvard 14, Yale 13. The Game will be decided by a disputed catch in the endzone...Yale will feel what it’s like to lose a squeaker.”

Senator Edward M. Kennedy ‘54-’56, D-MA

“Harvard will win bigtime! An undefeated season at stake and I’m sure they’ll put if off. I wish I could play.”

Gerard P. Hammond ‘02, First Class Marshal

“Harvard 35, Yale 7. The Crimson are going to flush the Bulldogs down the Yale Bowl.”

Blake J. Boulerice ‘03, “Who Wants to Be A Millionaire?” contestant

“Harvard 50,000, Yale zilch: Is that possible? Heck, I don’t know football—I had five ‘phone-a-friends’ so I wouldn’t have to answer any questions like this...”

C. Matthew MacInnis ‘02, President of The Harvard Crimson

“The Crimson will, in all likelihood, trounce the Yalies by a score of 23 to 2, a prediction made largely from the gut. As do most Crimson fans, I view the Yalies with a bilious eye, and although they’re just down the street from our own campus, are miles short of The Crimson in quality and ability. Although The Game is played over and over again, this time The Crimson will come out on top.”
