Seen in an article in today’s Herald about the fact that tail-gaters weren’t allowed to carry in their own liquor for the Harvard-Yale game (although people 21 and over were allowed to buy up to five beers):
“Is this not the lamest tailgate?” Ellie Brophy, a 21-year-old Yale junior, complained to her friend. “You actually have people taking shots in the Port-O-Johns.”
“It’s the most painful experience of my life,” 20-year-old Lindsay Hong replied. “A lot of people are getting drunk beforehand to sustain them. And it’s so crowded.”
“There were a lot of parties last night and this morning,” said Kristen Kim, a 20-year-old Harvard sophomore. “Legal or not, people are going to drink. So all of the rules are kind of unnecessary. It’s just annoying.”
If I were Ellie Brophy’s, Lindsay Hong’s or Kristen Kim’s parents, I’d just be so, so proud right now.
