Alumni Day, Harvard, 1968
"Stunning the Yale defense with two touchdowns, two two-point conversions, and an onside kick, the Crimson played its way back into the game and into the annals of history. The final score may have been a tie, but the celebratory home crowd rushing the field indicated that it was anything but, leading The Crimson to print its famed headline “Harvard beats Yale 29-29.” (The Harvard Crimson, 11/21/08)
You could do worse with your time than spend 105 minutes of it watching the documentary "Harvard Beats Yale 29-29", as I did last week. There's not a second devoted to The Ivy League Look, but don't let that stop you. And if you suffer from severe politicophobia, don't worry. While both Al Gore (Harvard '69 and roommate of Tommy Lee Jones, who played offensive guard for Harvard) and George Bush (Yale '68, first cousin of the filmmaker and roommate of Yale tackle Ted Livingston) are mentioned, neither appear in the film.
