Three crucial components:
3. The actual game—we have to at least stay through the third quarter because otherwise it would be a total embarrassment.
Do you want to be on TV? Does the mere thought of being within 100 feet of Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit make your mouth water? (Do you even know who Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit are?) Go to the booth. ESPN will be filming in the Dillon Quad on Friday and Saturday morning. The Dill Quad! Bring your poster board with a message for the nation (Hunger awareness? Disease prevention? Harvard Sucks?) or for your parents watching at home (I love you? Be proud of me? Harvard Sucks?). Or bring a cutout of Peter Salovey’s face and represent Mother Yale for the eyes of the nation to see.
Thanks to Snapchat’s new Our Campus Story feature, I have been able to view with envy the sheer mayhem that takes place on Big 10, Big 12, and SEC campuses (Go Dawgs!) whenever there is a big game. Now, we get a chance to show the Snapchat world what happens when Yalies invade Cambridge for the Game. We know that our tailgate is going to be better, our student section louder, and we still don’t have school on Monday. Save space in your data plan, and get your front-facing camera ready.
3. The Actual Game
Go to the game before kickoff and stay until it ends. I’m looking at you, you.
