Alum examines WASPs

“WASPs are a special breed of human,” reads the header of Yale alumna Haley Hogan’s ’90 blog, Stuff WASPs Like.

The most recent post on the blog is about tailgates, and Hogan cannot help but bring up Harvard-Yale. WASPs, clad in preppy knit sweaters, go to tailgates not for the sports but for the “desired ambiance of camaraderie and team spirit,” Hogan writes.

Of the game she writes:

Students are known to take the sport of tailgating to such an extreme that they become black-out drunk before the game has even started. But true WASPs know how to hold their liquor.
