The Stadium Experience:

New Haven, CT - Yale Bulldog country. It was time again for The Game - Harvard versus Yale. This was such an exciting matchup in Cambridge last year. The drive to New Haven isn't very exciting, but after parking directly across from the Yale Bowl things picked up - FAST!Parking was $20, and that puts them on par with most other places that I've been, but proximity and ease of departure DEFINITELY made up for it - 8. I didn't expect much fanfare, because there wasn't much at Harvard last year. I was WAAAAAY off base. Yale knows how to throw a party! There was a DJ, food, and excitement in the university sponsored tailgate area. The team's march to the stadium was filled with sounds from the band booming and shouts of Go Bulldogs from the onlookers. The fanfare grabs an 8. I wonder if the festivities are always like this or just when Harvard comes to town. I might have to find out someday. The Yale Bowl is quaint. It puts you in a place before fancy scoreboards, instant replay, etc. Not much to see from there, but I enjoyed the space - 5. Concessions were decent. There weren't many vendors. I am assuming this was because of pre-game tailgate. You were so full that you didn't want to BUY anymore. ;) That nets an average - 5. The Game, unfortunately, wasn't much of a game this year as Harvard won going away. I recommend the Yale Bowl for a stop. The fan experience is nice. - 6. Yale was impressive and yet disappointing. This visit receives a quiet 32. Thanksgiving and two games at the Pennslvania - West Virginia border - Pitt and WVU.
