It's been an eventful week for the Big Green. More swine flu, of course, but also some pretty intriguing sideshows- Keggy fighting the Sun God on the Green yesterday courtesy of the Jack-o-Lantern, for one- the most dumbfoundingly amazing of which being we won a football game.
Seriously- I'm not kidding. The Dartmouth football team took on Cornell on Saturday and, in a suspenseful double overtime game, beat them by three, 20-17. Back when I saw the Homecoming game against Columbia, I realized that we weren't actually the worst team in the Ivy League. Now I'm starting to think that we're actually good- or at least not last.
And the '13s are representing. Greg Patton not only scored a touchdown but also broke the rushing record. Woo-hoo! And Garrett Waggoner and Garrett Wymore, both '13s, were two of the top three tacklers for the Dartmouth defense.
Long story short, even counting in the swine, it's been a decent weekend. And in case you're wondering who won the Keggy-Johnathan duel, well, it was S&S's timely interference that saved the day. Kenny Baclawski seemed for a few moments to have bitten the dust courtesy of Johnathan's lightsaber, but it turned out he was just joking around. Fancy that.
Perhaps the Sun God and Keggy should jump on a fan bus for Providence for the next football game. They can distract the Brownies while the 'shmen score some more for the Big Green. The footballers don't actually need the help, it seems, but it would be amusing to see the confused looks on the non-Dartmouth faces... Go Big Green!
