The Right Note (Or A Sour One Depending On Your Perspective)

Courtesy of the Dartmouth football office, here's the scene from Leverone Field House after the game as the Big Green players let loose:

Dartmouth-UNH highlights from Saturday night can be seen HERE.

(Funny how I could watch the annoying commercial on Safari but not the actual highlights until switching browsers. Yeah, I know that's about updating Silverlight or one of those things on my machine, but those sneaky Internet geniuses are pretty good about making sure the commercials can be seen before you find out you can't see the rest ;-)

The game, by the way, is supposed to be rebroadcast tonight at midnight on one of the Fox Sports stations, although I couldn't find it on my "guide."
SeacoastOnline, the web presence of the Portsmouth (NH) Herald, has a story out of Dartmouth's 22-21 win over New Hampshire under the headline: UNH football: Rivalry ends on sour note.  Find the story HERE.

Amazing Ending To BGA's 'Guess the Attendance' Contest As Well...
The official attendance at (Saturday) night's barnburner was 8,296. The average guesstimate submitted was 8,891. The amazing part was that, unlike the UNH game that ended in dramatic fashion in the game's waning moments, the BGA contest was over nearly before it started, with the winning entry being submitted first, despite heavy voter turnout. Congratulations to Paul Ettari '72 on his winning submission. A $100 gift certificate to the Canoe Club is on its way to Paul! Stay tuned to BGA for the next contest to be announced.
