Although the screaming crowd, weeping Yalies, and mountains of booze might make you think otherwise, The Game wasn't the only thing that happened this weekend. Harvard teams came away with victories on other fronts as well.
The squash teams also performed well, crushing Boston College in dual 9-0 wins.
The men's ice hockey team pulled off a surprising win against Cornell in their first road game, 4-1. Too bad the next day they lost to Colgate, 1-0. At least it wasn't Yale...
Saturday: Aside from the all-important Game this Saturday, men's heavyweight crew also displayed some Harvard dominance. Harvard won both the freshman eight and varsity four races at the Foot of the Charles.
Sunday: Finally, despite losing two tough games to Bucknell and Brown in this year's Eastern Championships, men's water polo defeated MIT for a seventh-place finish. Though the Beavers tried, their dam couldn't hold back the Crimson tide.
Harvard students seem to only think about one game a year, and these teams could use some well-earned affection. So, good job! Now we can go back to not caring at all.
