Second is the best. Over the weekend, Grantland continued its “Who is the top Second Banana?” series, which will eventually crown history’s greatest sidekick. Yale was profiled (lovingly, by one of our own) as “the 1-A, the second-in-command” to Harvard’s pretentious #1. In the seeded tournament, Yale now faces Guns N’ Roses’ Slash after it proved itself a better second banana than VH1.

“Yale has helped shape me.” So says the Tyler Varga ’15, who showed plenty of love for Yale by telling his own story to Bleacher Report yesterday. Varga’s inner Eli came out in the piece’s intro, where he pointed out that “there aren’t enough hours in the day,” something that athletes and normies alike here can wholeheartedly agree on.

Remember that you are dust. Shifting gears from Mardi Gras yesterday, today is Ash Wednesday. Saint Mary’s on Hillhouse Avenue and Saint Thomas More on Park Street will hold Mass and distribute ashes over the course of the day.

Break out the beads. It doesn’t quite look like the French Quarter up here, what with all the snow on the ground, but today is Mardi Gras. Still, the dining halls don’t seem to have gotten the hint, so head up Whalley Avenue for Popeye’s to get your Cajun culture fix today.
