Yale-Harvard Game #100; spelling "for God, for Country, and for Yale" on the field with script "Elihu Yale"
Howard Stovall: "Was this the year of the Salute to Communism or was that the year prior? Classic show. Hate mail."
Matthew Orel: "I was clarinet section leader... (or did we have two? I just remember doing section-leader type stuff). Also frequent driver for Winter Wonder Band trips. Mark Temares reminds me that my car was dubbed "the deathmobile" after an incident on the bridge over the Connecticut River coming back from Dartmouth..."
"Ah, 1983, the year of the unforgettable road trip to the Oyster Bowl v. William and Mary in Norfolk, VA. Or maybe it was forgettable, since we brought enough alcohol for the trip which we managed to consume before we left New Jersey. Was also the trip where we enshrined Ashtar, the leopard-skin God of Beer and Wine, as the YPMB's patron deity. At least I remember that much. Also notable that year was the Salute to the Classics show at Princeton. The opening segment was about Oedipus and the Sphinx, and I believe that the props crew wrote "Eat Sh!t And Die" in hieroglyphics on butcher paper, which I'm sure must have amused the two Egyptian Studies majors in the stands."
