Yale Wins!

At the ’67 Class Tent before The Game on Saturday, November 23 were, left to right, Jean McMahon, Dave Stevens, Chris Kule, Bob Ramage, Andy Skodol (seated), Rick Luis and Bill Messinger; also attending were Nita Luis, Keating Hagmann, George and Shelly Lazarus, George and Libby Pataki, Dan Smith, Dave and Marianne Richards, and Elliott Detchon. After the thrilling game ended tied at 43 in regulation, our loyal classmates were treated to the thrilling 50-43 double overtime victory, considered by many Yalies as fitting revenge for the infamous 29-29 Tie in 1968, which many of us attended. The Game was interrupted for nearly an hour by a protest that pushed the finish of The Game well past sunset. Our stalwarts hung in there to see the hard-fought victory that earned Yale a share of the Ivy League Championship. Boola!

Celebrating Yale’s historic ‘Double Victory’ (regulation and 2OT) over Harvard on November 23rd at Mory’s were our classmates and friends, left-to-right: Rick Luis, Jean McMahon, Chris Kule, John Edwards, Debbie Edwards, Nita Luis, George Davis ’68, and Bob Allison.
