Cambridge, MA—The men’s hockey team came away with a 4-3 victory over Harvard Friday night, improving its record to 5-5-4 while picking up three valuable points in ECAC play. Bruno trailed 3-2 in the third period, but two goals in the span of only nineteen seconds proved to be the difference, giving the Bears their second win in three games of the new year (they had previously defeated No. 10 Boston University 6-1 in the Shillelagh Holiday Tournament).

Last night’s episode of 30 Rock (which you can watch for yourself here) featured Queen Latifah as a grandstanding Rhode Island Congresswoman angry about a lack of diversity on NBC. But she didn’t save her insults just for that company. Her character lashed out at many of our favorite people in Rhode Island — including including us!
“Mr. Donaghy, I represent Rhode Island’s 1st Congressional District. It’s a diverse community, from the hardworking moms and dads of Smithfield to the spoiled jags at Brown to the thriving, flourishing Italian criminal community in Providence.”
Spoiled jags, are we? Well! There’s enough diversity at Brown that we’re not all spoiled jags. But the joke’s on her — with midterm elections coming up, we can all “forget” to vote for her. If all this were real, that is.
At least the mafia got called out too.
Brown wasn’t the only Ivy the show’s writers threw under the bus. Frequently recurring joke Harvard took a hit too.
Liz: I don’t know if he’s mentioned this to you a hundred times, but he went to Harvard.
Jack: So we know he’s smart and superb at masturbation.
Harvard, your face is on the phone. Soccer practice is over, and you need to pick it up!
According to the Daily Beast, Harvard is the second most-dangerous school in America, and the most dangerous Ivy. Brown came in at seventeenth, and was the third most-dangerous Ivy (after the University of Pennsylvania.)
We’re a little dubious about the Beast’s rationale for its rankings, but we’re still happy to let our friends in Cambridge take this one.
In light of this weekend’s homecoming Brown vs. Harvard football game–the first night game at Brown’s stadium–our friends at the Post- Magazine have come up with a Top Ten featuring “Things Brown is Better at than Harvard.”
“1. Egyptology. Seriously.
2. There are only two Berks in the world. One on Thayer. One on Harvard Square. Ours is better; stomp up Thay.
3. Pembroke > Radcliffe. Even in the light.
4. Rollin’ green.
6. Being well-adjusted.
7. “There are actually several members of the Brown community who wear capes.” –Rachel Lamb
10. The Babe Ruth vs. The Endless Summers. Come on. Who’d win in a fight?”
Ra Ra Brunonia!
Princeton undergrads work “100-hour weeks” and opt for ” ‘bitchwork,’ ” while “superhero undergraduates” at Harvard create 28-hour days. Evidently, “Harvard kids don’t want to do 5,000 things at 97 percent; they’d rather do 3,000 things at 150 percent.”
For a glimpse of what your life could have been like, check out the start of Princeton’s “three-part series on careers in investment banking and consulting” or this feature on why students in Cambridge are just so busy.
Experts in one article call the nonstop lifestyle “overcompensation.” Others hypothesize that students hope to validate their undergraduate experience.
But perhaps it’s just one big cry for help because they simply aren’t happy.
It came down to the wire, but the Bears’ Friday night football game against Harvard ended in the Crimson’s favor, 24-21.
The Bears led 14-10 at halftime in Cambridge, with two rushes into the endzone by wide receiver Bobby Sewall ’10. Harvard struck back with two touchdowns in the second half to go up 24-14.
Brown answered with another Sewall touchdown in the last minute of the fourth quarter. A recovered onside kick gave Brown a last chance at victory, but the Bears’ comeback effort came up short with an incomplete endzone pass.

Yes, believe it or not, Brown does have varsity sports teams — and a handful of fall teams have been nationally ranked and competitive in recent years. Sports editor Andrew Braca gives a run-down of games to watch this season in Tuesday’s Herald.
The football team is ranked third in the Ivy league for the season, behind Harvard and Penn, after coming off a co-championship season last year. (And they beat co-champs Harvard head-to-head, so the Crimson’s championship rings don’t shine quite so brightly as Bruno’s.) The Bears will be preparing to face off against intrastate rival URI in their homecoming game this season:
Football, Oct. 3:
Homecoming games are often exciting, but last year’s 24-22, rain-soaked triumph over Harvard will be hard to top. This year, the Bears will square off against the University of Rhode Island in the battle for the 94th Governors Cup, seeking to avenge a 37-13 loss to the Rams last year.
Six All-Ivy selections return from last year, but Bruno will be breaking in a new quarterback.
Are the third-ranked Bears underrated or past their prime? We’ll have to wait and find out.
