Beautiful Night… Beautiful Day
I took my daughter Jordan to the Jets-Bengals exhibition game last night. It rained a lot, but my seats are under cover and as you can see, we both had a great time!
(sorry guys, but I didn’t get any of the cheerleaders’ phone numbers)
It sure felt good to get back to watching football at long last.
Meanwhile, the weather is just gorgeous today as the Lions actually hit the field for the first time for practice in training camp.
A Couple of Losses
Two names I noticed were missing on our roster today were junior LB Dan Kerrigan and sophomore DL Brad Losee.
Otherwise, the names and weights for each of the players remained the same, so stay tuned for those changes.
Yale has lost a couple of offensive linemen who quit the team. One of them was expected to vie for a starting spot.
Practice for the Elis officially started Friday.

#26: Defense Starts Strong
Columbia came into the week 8 game at Harvard Stadium a heavy underdog to the Crimson.
And things started off on the wrong foot when Harvard RB Treavor Scales returned the opening kickoff 35 yards to midfield.
But the Lions defense was more than ready, forcing a surprising three-and-out.
Josh Martin made the key play in the series, tackling eventual Bushnell Cup winner Gino Gordon after just a three yard gain.
That first possession set the tone for what would be a very strong performance by the Columbia defense all day.
