"On Friday night, Harvard visits the Lynah Faithful."
The Lynah Faithful should not disappoint their fearless leader. They should make sure that the Crimson has a warmer welcome than even they get usually. Oh, yes, the chants of "Harvard Sucks," "grade inflation," and "safety school" will be there. Of course, the fish will be there. But, another opportunity should not be squandered.
Half of the senior members of the Harvard roster already have carved themselves a little piece of history. Their notoriety is of the notorious rather than noteworthy sort. Max Everson, Steve Michalek, and Patrick McNally, all three essential players of this Harvard squad, were disgraced participants in Harvard University's cheating scandal in 2012. Many found their ability to remain with the program under such circumstances unbefitting the academic standards expected of the Ivy League.
We all make mistakes, such is true, but why make waste of such a ripe opportunity? These three special seniors of Harvard deserve a particularly pointed send-off for what likely will be their last game at Lynah Rink. Don't you agree?
We at Where Angels Fear to Tread have fashioned a welcome note of sorts for our rabid red throngs to share with these players and Harvard throughout the game and on the bench. Put it against the glass. Attach it to the back of your papers during line announcements. Just let them know how much we appreciate their tenures and addition of another chapter in the growing volumes of follies with which we harass our most hated foe.

But, in a rivalry this rich, we cannot ignore such a precious gem.
