Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I've been going to the Harvard-Yale football games since 2008, and I usually go when they have the game at Harvard. I live only two miles away from the school's Allston campus, so, it's natural that I show my neighborhood pride and cheer for Harvard during the game.

I just looked at the schedule for this year's game. It's scheduled for November 17th, 2012, 12:00PM at Harvard Stadium. Can't wait for the free alcohol offered before the game. I have my Harvard shirt ready for that day.

Anyone ever attend a Harvard-Yale football game? I rarely ever attend other athletic events, but I guess my proximity to Harvard Stadium and the relative cheapness of the tickets (only $36 a piece) make it an event worth attending. Plus, I love college football, and I find the games at Boston College a bit tame (they don't even let you invade the field after the game and have stricter policies on alcohol).

I don't go to school at Harvard, but a part of me wishes I did. Unfortunately I was rejected when I applied.

    Harvard-yale football game was the basis of a great Gilmore girls episode.

    Is this a stealth Gilmore Girls thread? I'd like that

    I plan to apply to HBS in a few years. Maybe they want me, even if the College didn't...

    It can get pretty epic at times. I remember during the 2010 game how I jumped nearly 20 feet into field after the game. Landed flat on my back on the grass. It hurt so bad... Plus, I was mildly inebriated at the time.

    They don't. But up here in Boston, it's as good as college football gets. Games at Boston College aren't as exciting.

    It isn't really about the game - it's about the social experience.

    CAUGHT YOU

    A Cylon would say they're listening to Hendrix and his version of All Along the Watchtower

    So that nobody would be suspicious and find out that they're actually listening to Bob Dylan's version

    I really wanted to go to Harvard when I was little and my mom was a single teenage mother and we had to work really hard to save up and I studied ever so hard so that maybe I would get a scholarship and we eventually decided that I would have a better chance of getting into the ivy leagues if I went to a really expensive private school and to do that we had to reconnect with my mother's rich and overbearing parents in hopes that they would help fund my education.

    I ended up going to Yale instead of Harvard.

    what one?
    what?
    what field?
    it doesn't make any difference what field, it's completely hypothetical
    but, how come i'd be there?
    maybe you're fed up. maybe you want to be with a bunch of friends. who knows? you look down and see a tight end, Leon. he's crawling toward you
    tight end? what's that?
    you know what a lineman is?
    of course!
    same thing
    i've never seen a lineman ... but i understand what you mean
    you reach down and you flip the tight end over on its back, Leon
    do you make up these questions, Mr. Holden? or do they write 'em down for you?
    the tight end lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. not without your help. but you're not helping.
    what do you mean, i'm not helping?
    i mean: you're not helping! why is that, Leon? they're just questions, Leon. in answer to your query, they're written down for me. it's a test, designed to provoke an emotional response... shall we continue?

    Still a pretty solid choice, though. I knew a girl from my high school who went to Yale. She likes it.

    I don't know, it's the last episode! they left so many questions unanswered

    did you know liza weil was almost cast as rory but ultimately lost out to alexis bledel, and the character of paris geller was created as a consolation for a short period that eventually got extended to last the entire show?
