My Wife (Long suffering spouse of Columbia Fan)
Son (went to first game at age 16 months)

Why not have a star PEA/CU RB join? And a Swamscott boy, yes? Wife is from Lynn.

Hell, invite the band too!

Jake, will the Ivy League office's new football radio show give me the details about the league's plan to send the Ivy champ to the playoffs?
No? How about an 11th game? No? Then I guess I won't be listening because I've heard all the usual stuff many times over. The only thing different would be a league mandate to Bollinger to forget trying to dictate the content of the news media, and instead deliver
a football title for the Lions.
