Suppose it were Friday cix: orange fade to black

  Very reasonably, the Ivy League
  has always reserved the prerog-
  ative to ignore the gridiron in
  the higher calling of cultivat-
  ing an imitation of the languor
  of the Platonic symposium. This
  predilection reaches disturbing
  levels, however, when a loss to
  both Harvard and Yale is capped
  by temporizing at Dartmouth. It
  is one thing to abjure competi-
  tion in the dialogues that mat-
  ter, but entirely another, when
  refusing honourable temptation.
  It can begin to look unamiable.
