Though a baseball column technically makes sense right now, it would have been odd to write one in the middle of division series action. Instead, Hodes and I felt it was best to give an NFL quarterly report. The 2007 season has been characterized by the usual smattering of interesting stories, disappointing teams and breakout performances. Five truths I've gleaned from the action so far are presented below.
With all the hooplah surrounding the MLB playoffs, Schmidley and I felt it appropriate to reveal five NFL truths from the first quarter of the season. Maybe it's just that talking baseball, as a Yankee fan, is too painful for me right now. Either way, this early NFL season has already produced a lot of surprises, both good and bad, some more unexpected than others. And in no apparent order, here are my five truths.
"Our motto all year has been focus on Friday, finish on Saturday," Head Coach Ann Marie Larese said. "Saturday, we didn't play our best, and we're lucky that we can do that and still win."
After a frustrating loss to the University of New Hampshire last week, the Big Green was looking for a win in its Ivy League opener against the Bulldogs. However, robust defensive play and strong goalkeeping kept the game scoreless through the 110th minute.
Let's play a word association game. I'll name a sport, and you shout out the first thing that comes to your mind. Dartmouth cross country -- that's right, Ben True '08!
In a game that the Dartmouth women's soccer team (3-7, 1-1 Ivy) needed to get back into the race for the Ivy League crown, the Big Green got a late winner from Maggie Goldstein '10 in the 86th minute to defeat Yale 1-0. Both teams had their share of chances throughout the game, but it was the Big Green who came through in the clutch and broke Yale's six-game winning streak.
Teevens said that the best way for Dartmouth (1-3, 1-1 Ivy) to stop record-setting Yale (4-0, 2-0 Ivy) running back Mike McLeod was to keep the Bulldog offense on the sidelines for as much of the game as possible. Yet, the Bulldogs kept the ball for 38:46 in a 50-10 victory.

IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH
After about 45 minutes of watching dancers stretch their arms in unforgiving, solid-colored Rauschenberg encasements, their suddenly sleeveless bodysuits seemed scandalously new. This ability to magnify subtle change into shocking event is the magic of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company (MCDC). With astonishing technical control and gorgeous angular grace, the dancers forge drama from the raising of a heel, the opening of a hip, the novel baring of a bicep.
On a humid autumn afternoon, the sun-bathed atrium above the Bentley Theater in the Hopkins Center was home to the kind of vibrancy that made Hop passersby peer in through the large windows and caused students fresh from Courtyard Cafe to work their way into the buzzing crowd.
Notably missing from this collection is the Hanover Inn itself. While I almost included it solely on the quality of the complimentary chocolates, I decided that its adjacency to campus disqualified it. The deciding factor? If you can do the walk of shame from it, it's just a glorified dorm.
"At the end of a Scenic Vermont road lies a cheese lover's paradise," the Boston Globe wrote about Sugarbush Farm in 1975. Looking over the pictures of piles of cheese on Sugarbush Farm's website, Lily Macartney '08 and I, self-proclaimed cheese enthusiasts, were intrigued. So on a pleasant fall afternoon with nothing better to do (except for our ever mounting pile of coursework), we threw our history books to the winds and set off for that scenic road and for the golden, creamy treasure promised at its end.
