The Experience: Harvard at Lynah Rink

The basis of this post is 1) that I got a Flipcam for Christmas and 2) while at Lynah Rink, I knew someone who would be sitting in Section O (visiting section, across from the Cornell student section) for the Harvard-Cornell game. So here are a few of the videos from that. Except for the first video, none of this is only for when Harvard comes to town but since the intensity is always up for Harvard-Cornell, seemed like a good time for these videos. Note that they are NSFW.

Harvard is greeted by a wall of fish for the introduction, an attack on New England's maritime roots that was a response to Harvard fans use of chickens to taunt Cornell's Agricultural School. Cornell eventually received a bench minor for items thrown on the ice in the third period, immediately following their third goal. 

During the introductions for the starters, the Cornell fans pretend to be reading the Cornell Daily Sun and scream "BOR-ING" while the other team is being introduced.

At the start of the 3rd period in every game, the Cornell band begin playing Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll Anthem, Part II" and the fans do the choreographed dance to it while telling opposing goaltenders he is a sieve. Here, Ryan Carroll gets that treatment. Carroll led the Crimson to a 4-3 win over Mike Garman and the Big Red.
