Harvard's Basketball Team Works Better Than Harvard

Sometimes Harvard Yard literally smells like bullshit. The grass takes a regular beating from the weather and the footsteps of mathematicians eager to find the shortest path to class. So, a few times a year, to spruce it up for the brochures and the visiting parents, the grounds crew gives it a fat coating of organic… » 3/22/13 3:21pm 3/22/13 3:21pm

The 13 Most Annoying Men Of March Madness

We've done enough loving on March Madness this week. March Madness is a wonderful time of the year, but it is also to be hated on: The fluffy mascots dancing around like they own the place, the pepped-out pep squads cheering like they actually believe in something, the crabby coaches, the clueless announcers, and the… » 3/21/13 11:20am 3/21/13 11:20am

The Harvard Baseball Lip-Synch Video That's Sweeping The Nation

Suffice it to say, I had no clue who Carly Rae Jepsen was when this video started circulating a couple of days ago. Evidently, the song is called "Call Me Maybe," which I also had to look up because I hadn't ever heard it before. Our old pal Emma Carmichael called it "the new perfect pop song" back in March. And… » 5/09/12 5:00pm 5/09/12 5:00pm

Internet, Prepare Your Wanking Motions: Harvard Prigs Talk About Team's…

So I went to Harvard. It was a daily challenge not to slug many of my classmates in the face. There are plenty of good people at Harvard. There are also a great many egotistical children convinced that their prattling is the stuff of genius. Too many politicians in training wheels. Too many cowards who wind up in… » 3/08/12 12:40pm 3/08/12 12:40pm

Available only at their Harvard Square location, Ben & Jerry's is selling a limited edition "Taste The Linsanity" flavor, which includes delicious little crumbles of fortune cookie.

Jeremy Lin Dominates Other NBA Players In Planking

The NY Post ran a cropped version of the above photo in a story this morning about how Jeremy Lin, who's been sleeping on his brother's couch on the Lower East Side, is now searching for a home of his own, as it seems Lin will be sticking around New York a little longer.

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 11:25am 2/09/12 11:25am

Raise Your Teacups And Your Pinkies: Harvard Basketball Has Entered The…

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."

A Day At Harvard-Yale And Its Tragic Tailgate

NEW HAVEN, Conn.—I could tell you about dropping by the Yale crew alumni tailgate on Saturday, and taking a shot of Jim Beam with a slice of prosciutto, but that's not the reason the Game's 2011 tailgate will forever be the Tailgate. We'll now call it the Tailgate because three women there got run over by a U-Haul,… » 11/21/11 4:40pm 11/21/11 4:40pm
