Essay: "Dying for Dear Old...." Heywood Broun.

One-minute review: A criticism of the excessive emotion accompanying college football. Concludes with the following sentences: “He was never invited to come to Cambridge to assist in the coaching of any future Harvard eleven. His heresy was profound. He had practically intimated that being defeated was less than tragic.”
