It’s a misty, ugly, wet day here in Providence as we wait for the start of the football game pitting Yale against host Brown. Brown Stadium sits in a beautiful setting in Providence, but the stadium itself isn’t as easy on the eyes. The entire stadium — press box included — is outdated and in need of some sort of renovating. Maybe it’s me being spoiled by the beauty that is the Yale Bowl. Whatever.

In preparations, Brown seemed more pumped up than Yale. You’d think the Bulldogs would come out with a little more spunk on the first-place team’s home field, especially in a must-win situation, but it was the Bears who came 0ut a little more fired up. We’ll see if that translates to game time.
