Hampden-Sydney 54, Gettysburg 7

Just got back from the alma mater, after a weekend of Alumni Council meetings, socializing with old friends and favorite professors, and great football.

Hampden-Sydney played today for the second time at its brand-new Everett Stadium, which is pretty much a new home-side edifice in the Federal style of architecture which earned the school a place on the National Register of Historic Places. It's truly a beautiful facility, an imposing brick structure with three arches, a second-floor lounge for special events, and a third-floor press box. Congressman Virgil Goode and his wife were also in attendance.

It was a great game, utterly dominated by the Tigers. Just couldn't bring myself to root for the Lutherans today.
