On Harvard Eve

The last time Dartmouth defeated Harvard on the football field it was Andrew Hall making "The Catch" on a 38-yard completion from Charlie Rittgers. John Sterling, Mr. "Yankees win, thuuuuuuh Yankees win," made the call on the YES Network as Dartmouth handed the Crimson its first loss, 30-16.

Check out BGA Premium for a look back at the remarkable play (and the strange play that preceded it) with former Dartmouth quarterback Charlie Rittgers '06, today an Ohio lawyer.

Heading out to get the newspaper this morning the sun was splashing one of the nearby ridges and I scurried back in to get my camera. Foliage has been a little below average this fall with a lack of reds. (Click photo to enlarge.)
