I Was A Quizbowl Champion

College quizbowl is a game you don’t know, played by people you don’t know, who know lots of things you don’t know (sorry). I’m not talking about the high school game; if you’re like most people, you know the social implications that the words “high school quizbowl” supposedly carry.

Whiny Harvard Student Gets Skewered In Devastating Email

In the old days, disputes between Harvard students were settled one of three ways: pistols at dawn, a scullerman's joust, or trial by mayonnaise.

Jeremy Lin Also Dominates Intramural Flag Football Games

There's just no stopping this Lin fellow. Here he is taking over what appears to be the 2009 Harvard intramural flag football championship between Winthrop House and Leverett House (respect). A two-way threat, Lin can be seen flying all over the field. Just chuck the ball in his direction and let him go up and get… »2/09/12 11:25am2/09/12 11:25am

Raise Your Teacups And Your Pinkies: Harvard Basketball Has Entered The AP Top 25

Here's the AP: "Harvard is in The Associated Press' Top 25 for the first time. ... Harvard is the first Ivy League school to be ranked since Princeton cracked the top 10 late in the 1997-98 season."
