First 250 students get free admission to the Cornell game.

But are students so lazy that they need to have an Uber ride back to the dorm or campus hangout?

When you mentioned Uber I thought you were joking, but you weren't. Holy crap.

Q - I’m going to assume this post is just a bit of tenporary insanity. It may have intended to be humorous, but it’s pretty offensive even to me and I’m not all that sensitive.

I was poking Trump in the eye. I apologize.

Of course, if Trump actually had a brain, he'd realize that the vast majority of Americans actually come from rotten places (or at least they were rotten at the time).

And that, of course, is a key factor in America's success.

I will be pleasantly surprised if we get 250 students to the game tonight.

[Sounding like an old geezer]

I have to ask - Uber rides to and from where?

Current students really can't walk from the Quad or High Rise North to the Palestra?

Let's put it this way--they don't.

WTF? They can't walk to the other side of campus? How do they get to science classes?

Ed Rendell is right.

I recall my bewilderment (in the late '80s) at stories of some people taking taxis from the High Rises to DRL. Never actually believed it.

Now I believe it.

Heck, I used to walk from HRN on cold Saturday mornings to 18th and Spruce to teach Hebrew school.

Isn't school out of session? So maybe it makes sense for this game.

I remember walking across Superblock (they don't call it that anymore) at 2 in the morning on weekend nights during the brutal winters of '77 and'78 and it being so cold that all I would do at some point is scream BRRRRRRRRR! at the top of my lungs and hear it echo throughout the canyon.
