Masaki Aerts — that’s a thing!

I’m a little biased, but Derek Kyler to Masaki Aerts is WAY better than Flutie to Brennan:

Dartmouth beats Harvard on a 43 yard Hail Mary to Masaki Aerts as time runs out, 9-6.


Dartmouth plays Princeton at Yankee Stadium on week from today, November 9, 2019, to celebrate 150 years of Collegiate football and 250 years of Dartmouth College.

I cannot thing of anything else on my schedule for November 8, 9, 10.

I have a Matt the Electrician show on sale for November 16 at Cubberley H-1.

I have a Dave Douglas Engage jazz show at The Mitch for Thursday, November 21.

But nothing comes to mind for November 9. {I price $750 flights on JetBlue and $89 seats for the Game but also remembered I have tickets to the Sharks-Predators Saturday night, my first Sharks game in 20 years. So no go}


You know, my wife says she went by Aquinas church in Palo Alto an hour or so ago and caught the eye of the priest and decided to join the Mass — is there a connection? Between Dartmouth’s Hail Mary win and Terry going to Mass?

Hail Masaki!

(I was also peeping at Dartmouth coaching staff member Jen King, same name as a classmate of mine, a twin named Jen King, and it was King and her 2,000 twitter followers that alerted me to the nature of the 9-6 win, the Hail Mary).

“A miracle…Dartmouth stays undefeated!” (It looks to me like they were trailing 6-3 in a field goal contest, then were driving to win, threw and interception, fumbled, made a stop in the redzone, had a miracle drive with no timeouts 90 plus yards, the QB Derek Kyler slipped a tackle in the rush like Steve Young or Ken Stabler, threw it as time ran out, from 50 yards, tip drill in sea of hands at the goal line and Masaki Aerts came up with the ball for the win and immortality — -maybe not just in Plastic Alto. Let’s see if its on SportsCenter.
