Sold out! As of 12:30 p.m. yesterday, all Game tickets in both the undergraduate student and general admission sections have sold out. “They had one ticket left, and there were 10 of us,” Wade Campbell ’11 said of the scene at the Ray Tompkins House yesterday. “I was [upset].” Unticketed Game-goers can still find select tickets on eBay or Craigslist for exorbitant prices — all the more excuse to sneak into the Harvard student section and show them a real tea party.

Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell predicts a Yale win in The Game tomorrow. “I am looking for New Britain native Mike McLeod to have a big game and put an exclamation point on his stellar college career,” Rell told the News. “Yale’s excellent defense will not disappoint, either. My prediction: Yale 17, Harvard 14 in a thriller.”

Yale Police Chief James Perrotti also foresees an Eli triumph. Consistent with federal reporting requirements and in order to increase campus morale, the chief predicts a 14-6 victory over the Cantabs.

Hungry Yalies with short-term memories failed to remember that they signed up for the YHHAP fast and ended up paying for lunch and dinner at various dining halls across campus yesterday. “Some people completely forgot that they had signed up and got pretty angry,” Berkeley College dining services worker Annette Tracy said.

Thousand-dollar Tylenol theft. A thief ran out of Walgreens on York Street yesterday with an estimated $1,000 worth of Tylenol in hand. The Capsule Criminal was chased and subsequently tackled by several Walgreens employees. “It was fairly epic,” an eyewitness reported.

Live from LC, it’s Rachel Dratch! In a Pierson College Master’s Tea on Thursday, the former Saturday Night Live star and Dartmouth alumna visited Yale in a collaboration with the improv comedy group Purple Crayon. Her post-SNL career has been a little slow, and although she tried not to be too much of a Debbie Downer, her advice to students interested in show biz was a bit glum.

Yale-subsidized ASA buses might be sold out, but Amtrak tickets to Massachusetts are still available. The 10:10 a.m. train this morning costs $64, while the 2:04 p.m. departure is $77.

This day in Yale history

1968 An unidentified Yale student took advantage of the sold-out Game and reportedly sold eight tickets in New York for $1,000 total. Not bad, considering the tickets together cost $48. But as it turned out, whoever bought those tickets ended up with a pretty good deal too — the 1968 Game was later dubbed “The Game of All Games.”
