Certainly the most memorable (or momentous?) Princeton football game was against Penn my senior year, Nov. 4, 2006, at Princeton Stadium. The match turned out to be a thrilling double-overtime victory made possible by an improvised lateral on a critical fourth and goal. That play ended up on ESPN’s top plays of the weekend; but for me, it is just a personal footnote to the larger event of the day — being introduced to a sophomore I’d later marry.
Editor’s note: John B. Canning ’65 similarly remembers the Yale game in 1962 “not because of any outstanding plays (although Princeton won) but because my blind date for the game was a young lady from Smith College whom I wound up marrying and to whom I’ve now been married for 51 years!”
