Help the Harvard Club of Cincinnati kick off our 150th anniversary on the 50th anniversary of “A Clash Upon A Darkling Plain”, one reviewer's description of Harvard’s ferocious 16-point comeback (start at 2:41) in the waning moments of the game played in Harvard Stadium a half-century ago.
This year holds another historic marker: the 135-year anniversary of The Game will be contested at Fenway Park. This is the first time since 1912 that The Game will be played at a venue other than Harvard Stadium or the Yale Bowl.
Parking is easy…brewery parking lot across the street from the entrance, on the street or around the corner at Findlay Market. If you’d prefer to take the Streetcar, there is a stop right in front of Rhinegeist. We look forward to seeing you!
The Story behind the Wishbone Traveling Trophy
The wishbone theme was inspired by the cover of the Official Program for the 1947 edition of The Game.
The Wishbone Trophy will serve as a tangible, durable reminder of each year’s results, with the admonition,
“Sic transit gloria mundi” or “worldly things are fleeting”.
