All glory to the hypnotoad

Dartmouth @ Penn

I was at last night’s Penn-Dartmouth game for the annual Penn Band Alumni reunion. It had one of the odder box scores you’ll ever see. Pick any column — shots, free throws, rebounds, steals — it’s one lopsided advantage after another. But somehow it all balanced out, and it took a 3 by Zach Rosen with 3.2 seconds left for the Quakers to eke out a 58-55 victory.

After the game saw an even rarer sight, as Quaker fans all pulled out their smart phones to check the score of the Princeton-Harvard game. Penn fans rooting for Princeton? Maybe the Mayans were right about this whole 2012 thing
